How to Jailbreak a Firestick (February 2021)
Step by Step Guide

So, today I am going to show you how to jailbreak a firestick.

This firestick jailbreak process is also called ‚Äúside-loading‚ÄĚ, which is installing third-party streaming apps onto a FireStick or Amazon Fire TV Stick.

Basically, we are just taking third-party applications that are not in the Amazon App Store / Google Play Store and downloading and installing them onto the firestick device using an app called FileLinked.

How to Jailbreak Firestick

This will work for ANY version of the Fire TV Stick, including the Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Cube and so on (any and all generations will work including all new firesticks).

So if you are asking how to jailbreak a firestick, how to jailbreak a firestick lite, how to jailbreak firestick 4K and so on, then this simple step by step tutorial will show how to jailbreak any firestick.

The entire process is done right on your FireStick, and does NOT require a computer or additional equipment.

When I show you how to jailbreak a firestick, I will be showing you the best third-party streaming apps you should have on your device.

I have manually tested out dozens and dozens of different apps, and have established these apps as the best app setup for the current month.

The optimal app setup I will be showing you will allow you to stream free new movies & TV shows, free IPTV, and free live sports right on your Amazon Fire TV Stick.

What Does Jailbreaking a Firestick Mean?

Basically, jailbreaking a firestick is just removing restrictions on the device so you can install third-party apps not available in the normal Amazon app store.

These apps that you can install through the jailbreaking process will allow you to access free live TV, free IPTV, free movies & TV shows, free music plus more free content.

Technically, this process is actually called firestick side-loading since it is truly just side loading third-party applications onto the device.

The entire process is generally called jailbreaking a firestick or a firestick jailbreak, so for the sake of the popularity of the term, that is the title of this article to keep things simple.

How to Jailbreak Firestick

Usually when you are jailbreaking a device such as a laptop, computer or iPhone iOS you are installing modified firmware (or new operating system) onto the device.

Fortunately, when you jailbreak a Fire TV Stick you are just side loading third-party applications! This easy process will give you a fully loaded firestick.

Once we are done jailbreaking the firestick, which is really just removing the restrictions for installing third-party apps, we can then side-load the new applications.

This jailbreaking process can be done right on the Fire TV Stick when it is plugged into your TV, and does NOT require a computer or other hardware.

History Of The Firestick Jailbreak

The Amazon Firestick has a pre installed Amazon App Store, which allows you to install different applications on your Fire TV device.

This store includes many popular apps such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, HBO, Disney Plus, ESPN+, YouTube, Downloader and more.

All of these apps have to be approved by Amazon in order to be in the store, so the hurdle to make it into the store is large.

Amazon has been historically against apps that allow cheaper streaming options, most notably with the removal of the Kodi application from their store in 2015.

With the removal of this application that was popularly used by Firestick owners to watch free content, users started to jailbreak their Fire TV Sticks.

Since so many users were in the market for third-party applications to watch free live tv, movies & tv shows, many new apps have been developed since.

These applications, also known as APKs (Android Package Application), are extremely easy to install, setup and use on the Firestick.

The reason these apps are so easy to install on a Firestick is because a Firestick runs on an Android operating system.

So basically, jailbreaking is just installing the apps already made for the operating system from an App Store outside of the Amazon App Store.

This process will not work on a Roku or Apple TV device because those devices run on an operating system other than an Android operating system.

This means these third-party APKs will NOT work on a Roku or Apple TV device.

Which Firestick Can I Jailbreak?

A common misconception is you need a specific type of Amazon Fire TV Stick to jailbreak it.

You can jailbreak ANY firestick easily and do so with the complete tutorial at the top of this page.

So again, if you are asking how to jailbreak firestick, how to jailbreak firestick 4K, how to jailbreak a firestick lite etc… then the tutorial below will show how to jailbreak any firestick that you have.

You can also install the APKs from the jailbreak above on any device with an Android Operating System.

This means you can apply this jailbreak to Nvidia Shield, Android TV Boxes, Android Phones and anything else with an Android Operating System.

This will NOT work for devices such as Roku or Apple TV because they are on different operating systems.

Is Jailbreak Firestick Illegal?

No, jailbreaking a firestick is not illegal.

It is not illegal to install third-party applications onto your device.

Assuming everything you are streaming while using these third-party apps on your streaming device is on the Public Domain, you are all set.

However, if you are using a third-party application to stream copyrighted content that isn’t on the public domain then you could find yourself in hot water with your Internet Service Provider or Government depending on federal streaming laws.

That is why it's very important to protect your online identity (IP Address) from your ISP and Government using a good VPN service like IPVanish VPN.

IPVanish VPN will make you completely anonymous online and encrypt your personal data so that your ISP or Government cannot see what you are streaming.

Your IP Address is used to identify you while navigating the web, so when you are tied to a VPN server, your IP Address is masked making your online activity completely anonymous.

Always make sure to protect yourself with a good VPN when jailbreaking a firestick

Please stay away from free VPN services since they will harvest and sell your personal data as they are free for a reason!

Where Can I Buy An Amazon Fire TV Stick?

For purchasing an Amazon Fire TV Stick, the easiest option is to purchase it through Amazon.com.

They will have all available versions ready to ship right to you and will basically turn any TV with an HDMI port into a smart TV.

If you want it immediately, you can check out your local Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, GameStop or Staples. Just give them a call before heading over to see if they have any in stock.

For the type of Fire TV Stick you purchase, you have a few options, all of which will work with the firestick jailbreak process.

The most common is the standard Fire TV Stick, which has picture quality up to 1080p along with buttons on the remote to control your TV volume.

The most expensive version is the Fire TV Stick 4K, which has picture quality up to 4K plus the volume buttons. If you have a 4K TV and want 4K picture quality, you should purchase this one.

The least expensive version is the Fire TV Stick Lite. This version is the same as the Fire TV Stick with 1080p, but no volume buttons on the remote.

The last version is the Fire TV Cube which is basically a hands free version of the firestick where you can for ask Alexa out loud instead of using a remote.

The Fire TV Cube also has 16GB of storage included and a built in speaker so you can speak with Alexa to control the Fire TV Stick for you.

The hardware specs for all of these devices are the same, with the Fire TV Cube having a slightly weaker processor for speed. All other version the the same processor and storage capacity. So, it comes down to preference and budget.

 

What is an APK?

APK stands for Android Package Kit. Basically, it is a file type that is specifically for Android Operating Systems.

An APK file is just a fancy way of saying a downloading file for an Android Operating System that will allow you to install an Application easily.

Using APKs is perfect for the FireStick because it runs on an Android Operating System, so it can easily take these files and install applications from downloading and installing the APKs.

What makes APKs great for the firestick, is basically you can have a FileLinked Store, or a one-stop-shop for APK files, and use these files to install applications right on your Amazon Firestick extremely fast and very easily.

What is IPTV?

IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television. Basically, it is streaming live tv channels to your device via the internet.

This means that instead of using a cable cord like you would with a typical cable subscription, you are just using your WiFi to stream a tv channel right to your device via the internet instead of cable cord.

What makes IPTV so great is there is no setup, and no cable guy telling you to sit home from the hours of 6AM – 8PM (I say that half jokingly).

All you do is find an IPTV provider, or even better, a free IPTV service so you can stream live tv channels right to your devices.

When it comes to the Amazon Firestick, there is an abundance of free IPTV APKs available where you can install a free IPTV app right on your Firestick and watch free live TV in any country.

Free live tv streaming is possible with IPTV APKs. 

 

So, let's get right into the FireStick jailbreak process (also known as “side-loading”).

I will leave the full YouTube video tutorial below and along with that a full screenshot tutorial as well.

Install IPVanish VPN

When jailbreaking a firestick, you always want to use a good VPN. So what is a VPN and why do you need it?

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network.

A VPN takes your IP Address (which is your personal online identity) and makes it completely anonymous while you use the internet.

This means that your Internet Service Provider has no idea what you are streaming or accessing when using the VPN.

A VPN encrypts your personal data from the developers of these third-party apps so they cannot access your personal information.

IPVanish VPN is the recommended VPN app for firesticks because it has absolutely no logs, meaning your data and browsing history is never logged or recorded.

Please stay away from free VPNs since they will harvest your personal data and sell it. They are free for a reason!

Always make sure to stay protected with a good VPN service when jailbreaking your firestick.

IPVanish VPN works the best with the Fire TV Stick, has the fastest connections and is one of the cheapest on the market.

So now that your firestick is jailbroken and fully-loaded with the latest applications, make sure to bookmark this page so you can refer back to it at the beginning of each month for a new update.

Now that you know how to jailbreak a firestick with the best apps for the month, feel free to browse some of my recommended alternative apps below (all available in the FileLinked Store) that you can add to your collection if you want!

Best Free IPTV APKs for Firestick

IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television, which basically means you are just streaming live TV to your device through your WiFi connection.

There are tons of great Free IPTV APKs (Android Package Kit) available that act as a Free Live TV app that you can use to stream thousands of channels across the world.

Each APK has something different to offer like different streams, better quality, less buffering, larger library, ease of use etc.

So each APK below has something to offer that you may be looking for in a Free IPTV APK.

OLA TV 10

OLA TV 10 is great free IPTV if you want to watch free live TV in any country.

The library for OLA TV 10 is absolutely HUGE and offers almost any channel you can think of.

Additionally, the streams within OLA TV 10 are super high quality with HD free live tv and no buffering.

There are a few downsides however.

For one, the way OLA TV 10 is organized is not very user friendly and the interface is very clunky and can take a while to load.

Additionally, you have to use Ludio Player and KShaw in conjunction with OLA TV 10 or the app won't work.

Both of those additional apps can and must be installed when within OLA TV 10 when prompted.

Once you have everything setup, you also need to use Mouse Toggle if you want to add anything to your favorite using the Star button in the top right hand corner of a channel.

Your favorite are then stored in KShaw which you can use to play just your favorite channels.

OLA TV 10 will allow you to watch Free IPTV / Free Live TV in Afghanistan, Australia, Arabia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Ethiopia, Fiji, Finland, France, Georgia, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Korea, Kuwait, Liberia, Libya, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Niger, Nigeria, Niue, Norfolk Island, Northern Mariana Islands, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Palau, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sudan, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom (Britain / UK), United States of America (USA), and Yemen. This also works in North America, South America, Asia, Africa, Europe and Australia as well.

RedBox TV

RedBox TV is a great Free Live TV APK that has tons of different countries and tv channels.

This free IPTV app is very similar to the layout of Live NetTV with how it looks and user interface.

It is a very easy app to use with how simple the setup is, and it's really easy to find a channel fast.

There are multiple streams to pick from when you select a show, so you have multiple options in most cases.

However, one thing that is lacking is the ability to customize the interface like you can with Live NetTV.

You are unable to hide certain countries or categories from the home screen of the app which makes it harder to find the channels you want.

You can also hold the center button while on a channel and easily add it to your favorites to view in the favorites section.

Additionally, you can use MX Player Pro with this app as your media player to have streams play perfectly in full screen.

This is one of the most simple and intuitive free live tv apps out there, and is a great backup if any stream isn't working in Live NetTV.

Mobdro

Mobdro recently has been shutdown and is no longer working. It was one of the oldest free IPTV APKs out there, and was a great option for many years.

A great alternative for Mobdro, now that it is shutdown, is Live NetTV, OLA TV 10 or US TV & Radio (all apps are in my FileLinked store code 79217215).

If you are seeking out the 24/7 channels which Mobdro had, I would recommend checking out OLA TV 10 since they have a massive library of stations, many of which have 24/7 channels.

Mobdro used to be very consistent with great working streams in high quality video and high quality sound.

This application however strictly was USA and UK channels, with no other countries included.

The free live tv channels that this app does offer did work great, and had the ability to record tv channels.

Make sure to add additional storage to your firestick with a USB drive and USB adapter if you want to record live TV in other IPTV applications.

There used to be an amazing 24/7 library in Mobdro with certain TV Shows or Movie categories that there is just always something playing from that category.

Some examples for 24/7 channels they had included 24/7 Comedy Movies, 24/7 Rocky Movies, 24/7 Alpacino Movies etc.

Again for 24/7 channels I would absolutely check out OLA TV 10 as a great alternative.

One thing with Mobdro used to do it make you either accept having some ads popup between shows, or allow them to use your firestick's idle resources when you are not using it.

They claimed that when they were using your idle resources they were not doing things such as mining BitCoin or whatever else, but I would stay away from allowing any app to use your idle resources.

Overall this app used to be one of the best out there for streamers in the US and UK that want a great free IPTV apk. Instead, check out Live NetTV, OLA TV 10 or US TV & Radio.

TVTap Pro

TVTap Pro is a great free IPTV APK that has tons of different channels in many different countries through the application.

This applications will be great for you regardless of which country you want to watch free IPTV in since the library is so large.

The interface is also very easy to use, and you simply click on a channel then put it in full screen to watch.

You can also use MX Player Pro with this application to have your shows appear in full screen in one click.

There is a great search function you can use as well to find channels fast and then add them to your favorite for easy access.

They have tv channel categories in this app for Entertainment, Movies, Music, News, Sports, Documentary, Kids and Food.

They also have a built in TV Guide section where you can see upcoming football/soccer games for most major leagues across the world.

This app also has the option to use your idle resources if you want to remove the ads, but again I recommend staying away from that option and decline the use of idle resources in the settings of the app.

Overall TVTap Pro is one of the most robust and also easy to use apps, making it one of the best free live tv apps out there to jailbreak a firestick with.

USA / UK TV & Radio

This application works great for watching local news channels and tv stations in the USA and UK.

There is a separate app for the USA and separate app for the UK.

There are tons of different channels to see in this app for both countries with a huge library of options.

You can also use this application with MX Player Pro for the best streaming experience and have it play in full screen for you easily.

When setting up the app, you want to make sure to use Simple Mode, and to select Use Alternative List Source before selecting TV or Radio.

Once you do that, you can see the entire list of TV channels or Radio Stations that you can choose from to stream.

You can easily add a channel to you favorites by holding the center button your firestick remote while over a channel then selecting Yes to add to favorites.

Then you can see all of your favorite channels right within the app and stream them easily either with the built in internal player or MX Player Pro.

If you are in the USA or UK, this is a great application to use on how to jailbreak a firestick.

Best Free Movie Apps for Firestick

Cinema HD

Cinema HD is a third-party application that is very similar to FilmPlus and Terrarium TV.

It has almost any TV Show or Movie that you would want to stream completely for free!

The setup for Cinema HD is very intuitive and has a section dedicated for Movies and TV Shows.

You can also tie your Real-Debrid account into Cinema HD which will allow the unlocking of more HD and 4K streams.

You can also adjust the settings in Cinema HD in order to set your default media player, change icon sizes and default screen settings.

A pro-tip for using Cinema HD is to always select streams that have a low MegaByte number next to them.

For example, a 200MB stream will have less buffering than a 2.4GB stream. This will limit firestick buffering if your firestick keeps buffering.

PikaShow

The PikaShow app is great for one-click new Movies and TV shows all for free.

This application allows you to just click on a Movie or TV Show and it will start to play automatically in HD or 4K quality.

There will also be no buffering and no lagging with this app, so it saves time in trying to find a working stream like in other apps.

This application also has Bollywood movies for free and Hollywood movies for free.

There are tons of different languages for each movie, and if you want to change the language audio for a movie you can do so easily in the built in player.

This application has a library smaller than apps like Cinema HD and others, but the streams work flawlessly which makes it a great firestick jailbreak app for free movies.

CyberFlix

CyberFlix is very similar to CinemaHD and FilmPlus in layout and general feel.

It also has a large library as well, with nearly every Movie or TV Show you can think of.

The downside is that CyberFlix seems to have less streams available than FilmPlus which makes it an inferior app overall.

However, this is a good backup app to have if FilmPlus does not have streams available for a show or movie, because CyberFlix tends to scrape the internet in different areas for streams.

So, if you have this app as a backup for streams that you can't find, you may just get lucky.

BeeTV

BeeTV is an application that has thousands of free Movies & TV Shows widely available.

There also is a very large Anime section in BeeTV which makes it a popular choice for Anime fans to watch Anime for free on firestick.

The layout is again similar to Cinema HD & FilmPlus, however, there are ads throughout the application.

The ads may make it a less enjoyable experience using the app, however, it still is a great alternative and has tons of steams widely available.

The streams that is scrapes will tell you the Speed, Quality, and if it is a Trusted Source which is a great feature. Trusted Source meaning that the site has been vetted for having high quality streams.

This application also works with Real-Debrid, AllDebrid, Premiumize and Trakt.TV which makes it an attractive option for users of those services.

Basically, using those services will allow you access to more HD streams but at a monthly cost.

TeaTV

TeaTV is a great free app for streaming basically any Movie or TV Show right on your jailbroken firestick.

It also has a great feature to watch Free Live TV in the app as well by just adding an M3U link.

There are plenty of free M3U links available on the internet, so you can add an M3U link for a live TV playlist and watch it from there.

This app also works with Trakt.TV, Real-Debrid and Premiumize which is a great additional feature.

I would say the Categorization of this application is one of the cleanest, so you can find the exact genre and year of a show or movie you want to watch.

The streams for this app are lacking compared to FilmPlus since FilmPlus has Real-Debrid built in for free, but still a great list of streams available.

JetBox

JetBox is a great application that is super simple and to the point for free Movies & TV Shows.

The layout is much simpler than most of the apps on this list, and the streams available are less in quantity but higher quality.

This app also has a good filter for choosing genre and category, making it simple and fast to find a movie.

Like most other apps it also has a search function to search for the application you want.

This app can also be used with external players such as MX Player Pro so you can easily add subtitles to a Movie or TV Show.

Although this app is nice when you want to watch something popular, FilmPlus will likely always be superior in having streams available for very niche Movies or TV Shows since it has Real-Debrid links built in for free unlike the JetBox app.

Nevertheless, this is still a great backup application to have and is simple for anyone to use when you jailbreak a firestick with this.

Popcorn Time

Popcorn Time is a free apk that you can use to download free movies right onto your Fire TV Stick.

You can use Popcorn Time for HD Movies, free download right on your Fire TV Stick.

Using this firestick jailbreak app is easy to use so you know how to download movies for free on your firestick instantly.

Firestick storage is very low right out of the box but you can increase firestick storage with a USB thumb drive and adapter for the firestick which are very cheap on Amazon.

Once you have that setup, you can download movies for free using the Popcorn Time application so you can watch them without WiFi and have zero lag.

Always make sure to use a good VPN service when downloading any content such as IPVanish VPN or if you have the dollar you can use ExpressVPN which does the same thing as IPVanish but is more expensive and less functional on the firestick.

Best All-In-One Apps for Firestick

UK Turks

UThe UK Turks App is a great addition to have on your jailbroken firestick.

It is very easy to navigate throughout the app since it has a very unique and intuitive layout.

There is a section for Live TV, TV Shows, Movies, Documentaries, Standup Comedy, Cartoons, Concerts and Radio.

The Standup Comedy section is a great addition since those are hard to find in almost any other app out there.

The Concert Section is great as well for the same reason of live concerts of that quality being hard to find on any other app.

However, I will say that the Concert and Standup Section have a lot of broken links but still you should be able to find something to keep you entertained.

There is also a favorites section as well where you can add your favorites from each of those categories and have them all in one place.

This app is a spinoff of the Kodi Addon which this was for years, but it is now an APK that is light and easy to use on the firestick.

I recommend sticking to APKs on the firestick since Kodi runs extremely slow on the firestick and often is extremely unreliable with having links that work consistently on your jailbroken firestick.

Strix

Strix is an all-in-one application that you can add onto your Amazon Firestick for free.

It is very easy to use and setup. Once you install it, make sure to enter the code 229156 to access all of the free content.

Within the applications, you will see a section for Movies, TV Shows, Live TV, Sports TV and Adult XXX.

The Movie and TV Shows section works great and you can setup links to play within MX Player for you.

The Live TV section works great as well for multiple countries, but it does not have the most extensive library.

The Sport TV section is pretty great, however my one complaint is it is very unorganized and difficult to navigate to find new channels.

Overall this is a great all-in-one app if you just want to add a single app to your firestick to use for entertainment to keep things super simple for your firestick jailbreak.

Is it Worth it to Install Kodi?

So for those of you who don't know, Kodi is a Media Center you can install on your firestick which can then have ‚ÄúKodi addons‚ÄĚ or ‚ÄúKodi builds‚ÄĚ installed into it.

Installing Kodi has been extremely popular since it was the original way to jailbreak a firestick.

Since it was the only way to jailbreak a firestick back then, people were more willing to deal with the slow speeds and interface to get free content.

However, now there are dozens of very fast and high functioning APKs available that you can install right on your firestick and get to your content much faster.

I feel that a lot of people who have been doing this for years are used to Kodi Leia, but I feel that Kodi has over the years become much more inferior to these new APKs out there.

It all comes down to personal preference, and for me, the time it takes for me to find a show, click it then watch it in HD quality with no lagging is the most important by far.

Kodi Leia I have found myself historically waiting for the interface to load for 30-60+ seconds for each click to a new screen, then not being able to find a working link in under 5-10 minutes.

I have found that using the APKs and having them set up on my home screen for easy access, I can access a Movie, TV Show, Live TV Channel or Live Sports Game right away in seconds.

For me, that is most important for my streaming experience, which is why I have made the switch over to strictly APKs and removed Kodi from my firestick.

To me, the age of Kodi is over, and the new age of free APKs is here for the best way to jailbreak Amazon Fire Stick.

  1. Hi I am having issues with my firestick I jail broke it in nov. It worked great then just stopped working. I put on another TV and now it semi works. The resbix wants some update done but I get error that Amazon does not do those updates. and film plus wont let me watch anything. It would be helpful maybe to know how to fix these issues and how to install new apps you suggest. Thank you

    1. Hi!

      The jailbreak on this blog is the most up to date version. Currently, removing Redbox TV from your firestick and replacing it with Live NetTV using the tutorial above will give you the best experience for streaming live tv.

      As far as fixing FilmPlus streams loading, try force closing the app and then the streams will populate again.

      To do this, go to settings -> applications -> manage installed applications -> FilmPlus -> Force Close

      Make sure to bookmark this page as I will update it every month with the latest jailbreak setup, and make sure to join the newsletter also where I will keep everyone updated if something goes down in the current month’s setup and how to fix it to make it easy to stay up-to-date!

    2. Film plus stopped working on mine also I deleted the version that had no ads mod and downloaded the one that has ads and it now works. The ads are only there while ur looking for a movie to watch they dont show up while the movie itself is playing

  2. I’m having difficulty with the Live TV Net app. Whenever I attempt to watch a show I receive an “Error fetching data 48×608” message under any channel that falls under Entertainment.

    1. It may mean that the channel may be down in live net tv. A good alternative app you can use to access any channels that may be down is TV Tap Pro or Red Box TV from my file linked store. Both are great apps and you can see which one you like best.

    1. Some US channels may be down in the Live Net TV app. A good alternative app you can use to access any channels that may be down is TV Tap Pro or Red Box TV from my file linked store. Both are great apps and you can see which one you like best.

  3. Hello,
    My live net TV app is showing a fetching error data 48×608 When I try to view A live channel. Does someone have a tip to correct this.
    Thank you

    1. It may mean that the channel may be down in live net tv. A good alternative app you can use to access any channels that may be down is TV Tap Pro or Red Box TV from my file linked store. Both are great apps and you can see which one you like best.

    1. The Sport Live Pro app is updated in my FileLinked store with the newest version which has somewhat larger text and also highlights the stream you are over now to make it easier to navigate! Works great for streaming live sporting events for free!

    1. It can be used on a computer monitor, however using it on a laptop is not plug and play, you would need extra equipment like a capture card to allow it to display on your laptop, then you would have to watch the video/audio in a capture card recording software. So I guess yes it’s possible, but the capture card will cost more than the Firestick itself and also will be a pain to set everything up. A tv or computer monitor would be the best bet for watching instantly and seamlessly

  4. Good evening,

    First, great YouTube video – perfectly detailed instructions / easy to understand. Second, quick question: Any thoughts on why I would be experiencing continued buffering while watching a 200 – 300 MB video file with a 1 GB internet connection? It happens so often the expereince is not worth the content & it would seem unlike that the bandwidth would be the issue.

    I would certainly be interested in your thoughts / tips.

    Thanks,

    John

    1. Thank you! As far as streaming and experience with lag, the lower MB stream you select the better it will stream. Make sure the VPN is on as well since some internet service providers will throttle your internet speed for connecting to certain sites. If your speeds are still slow, maybe try setting the vpn to the best connection in your own country and see if that fixes it!

    1. Does it work at all when navigating on the Home Screen with the audible clicking noises? If not, try resetting your firestick and make sure your tv volume is loud enough. If it is just a stream without audio, try selecting a different stream

  5. I have a jailbroke amazon stick, my question is how do I update it? Actually I have 2, but 1 I haven’t used and the other is not working right at all…

    1. So I would bookmark this page and sign-up for the newsletter in this blog (updated monthly) to always have the most optimal setup. If the setup changes in a given month you can just delete the old apps and replace them with the better ones. The newsletter will also tell you that and will notify you if / when an app goes down then how to fix it or replace it quickly. Hope this helps!

  6. Some apps in filelinked have a ! instead of a download button. Mobdro, Beetv, Teatv, and others. When clicked on shows error code 404. I’ve tried reinstalling Filelinked but that does not fix anything. Help?

  7. Can’t seem to navigate away from nfl in the sports app. Anyone have any tips? Followed the setup, everything else seems to work except that.

    1. I would make sure to activate the mouse toggle app so you can use it to navigate. Go to mouse toggle, toggle it to off then back on, and the when there is a popup click “Allow USB Debugging” and it then should turn to on. You can then use the mouse toggle in the sport live pro app by double clicking the play button on your firestick remote really fast and then use the mouse toggle to click the button in the top right hand corner to then select your sport. Hope this is helpful and let me know if you have anymore questions!

  8. I’m looking for an app that will give me TV listings and over the air listings. Ive seen you tube videos on TV 24 TV guide app, but they show it thru aptiode. I can’t find it thru filelinked nor download it thru downloader( google play store). Being able to have an app that I can check listings would save lots of time. TV 24 seems like a good answer but how do I get it?
