Jailbreak Firestick: The Ultimate How-To Guide

The Amazon Firestick has become a high-tech gift that just keeps on giving. When you jailbreak Firestick, you open up areas of the device that were previously out of reach. The term can also strike fear into the heart of beginners as the word “brick” is generally not far behind.

Compared to other gadgets, the Firestick is a simple device. That means you don’t need to worry about buffering issues or bricks if you follow our streaming tips and use our method to Jailbreak Firestick apps. Our guide will show you the different ways to jailbreak firesticks, and we’ve even included some of the top streaming apps around to get you started.

What do you want to watch after you jailbreak Firestick?

Game of Thrones streams may draw 10 million viewers online, but White Walkers are not for everyone. It is also not something kids should watch, even if they may want to. Before you go crazy after you jailbreak Firestick and download every streaming app in sight, you will want to keep one simple thing in mind – Firestick storage space.

By nature, streaming sticks do not come with much storage out of the box, and most do not allow you to expand. Amazon Firestick is no exception.  That means you need to think before downloading (after you jailbreak Firestick) or you will find yourself on the short end of that streaming stick.

All those other apps you have downloaded like Netflix, Hulu or even ES File Explorer take up space as well. By itself, Kodi is a somewhat lightweight app (around 90MB), but that changes once you factor in the add-ons and extras.  A fully installed Kodi build can take up 500MB (that’s half a Gig) or more!

If you feel storage will be a concern, you should consider streaming apps that cover a lot of ground before looking at ones geared towards specialty streams. Most provide the same “general” type of content, so you may be able to find what you are looking for by only using a few apps.

One key thing to remember after you jailbreak Firestick is the fact that Amazon Fire Stick has limited storage space.

You will want to keep backups handy however due to the nature of the streaming game.

How do we Jailbreak Firestick?

Unlocking your streaming sticks full capabilities can be as simple as allowing downloads and installs from unknown sources. It can also be quite difficult if you decide to travel down the Kodi road and don’t know the scene yet.  We will help you out in either case whether you want to try something new like DroidAdmin or prefer classics like FireDL and the Downloader to jailbreak Firestick apps. Those last two are still great options, but sometimes simplicity is the best way to go.

Jailbreak Firestick with DroidAdmin

We have discussed sideloading through apps through various means at length here on KodiFireTVStick, but this time around we are going to kick things off with an app called DroidAdmin. The program is extremely easy to use, and while it handles things a little differently, you will not need to worry about a Firestick brick when using this handy Android app.

This app allows you to download multiple files at once and takes typing long urls out of the equation. Even with the new Alexa voice remote, it can still be difficult to find what you want without typing. DroidAdmin takes care of that issue in short order although the code-based setup may take some getting used to if you are used to programs like the Downloader app, Apps2Fire or another sideloading method.

The DroidAdmin apk is easy to download as well considering you don’t have to jump to Google Play or “shoot” anything to your streamer from a phone or tablet. You can download this one directly from the Amazon App Store, and it uses a simple, but unique system involving codes.

To jailbreak Firestick using DroidAdmin, head to the Amazon App Store and download the program. Once it’s ready to go, you simply need to fire up the app and enter a code to head to a new kind of app store. While it may seem confusing at first, those codes send you to a repository of sorts that can have a single file or dozens of them. As you can see by the screenshot below, many of the DroidAdmin Apk Stores are packed to the brim with streaming goodies…
