Because Kodi is not available within the Amazon App Store, you must sideload this application on the Firestick/Fire TV using the Downloader App. This is also called jailbreaking a firestick.
The Downloader App is used by millions of cord-cutters and is popular for sideloading IPTV Services, IPTV Players, and other 3rd party apps.
Below you find a screenshot guide for installing Kodi on any Firestick or Fire TV device.
For those using Android TV devices such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, MECOOL Box, Chromecast, and other Android TV Boxes, follow the guide below for installation.

Before installing this app, we wanted to scan the official APK installation file with VirusTotal.
Here is the screenshot of the scan results.
VirusTotal did not find any malicious viruses/malware within the official Kodi APK file.
However, this does not mean we shouldn’t protect ourselves when installing 3rd party addons from Kodi.
The best way to do this is with a secure VPN that will secure your identity and anonymity when using 3rd party apps.
