This article will show you how to jailbreak Firestick.
By doing this, you will have access to thousands of free movies, TV shows, sports, live channels, and more.
The same process will also work for the Fire TV, Fire TV Cube, and televisions running the Fire TV OS.
This guide is compatible with the new Fire TV Stick 4K, released on October 31st, 2018.
The Amazon Firestick has become the most popular streaming device available today due to its low price and simple jailbreak process.
It is the process of removing restrictions imposed by the manufacturer to allow for the installation of unauthorized software.
Technically, we aren’t actually jailbreaking the device because we aren’t installing modified firmware. But, this is how new cord-cutters search for this topic and that is how we came up with the title for this post. We are glad you found us!
When jailbreaking most electronics such as phones or tablets, many times we are required to install modified firmware. You can think of firmware as the operating system for the device. Fortunately, we aren’t required to do that with a Fire TV Stick!
Once we have jailbroken the Firestick, we can side-load applications onto the device that we normally can’t get through the Amazon App Store. By doing so, your Firestick will have access to thousands of free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, and more.
If you don’t own a Fire TV Stick and want to get started with this tutorial today, we have you covered. Below are some retail stores that may carry this device.
Best Buy, Staples, Target, Fry’s, Radio Shack, Gamestop, B and H, Amazon Books, Electronic Express, Shopko, Toys R Us, Sears, P.C. Richard & Son, Meijer, HH Gregg, Fred Meyer.
We suggest placing a phone call to the retail stores listed above to ensure the Firestick is in stock.
If you don’t have one of these stores near, you may directly purchase the Firestick through the Amazon Website.
Or, if you are looking for a completely hands-free experience, you may want to consider jailbreaking the Amazon Fire TV Cube.
The Fire TV Cube has the same capabilities as the Firestick but with some added features. it includes a built-in speaker, 16 GB of storage, and far-field voice control.
The Firestick comes equipped with the Amazon App Store, which allows us to install applications easily onto our streaming device. Each of the applications within this App Store must be permitted by Amazon.
Some popular apps available in the Amazon App Store include Netflix, YouTube, Disney Plus, Downloader, and more.
Since first released in 2014, Amazon has taken a strong stance against applications that promote free and low-cost streaming capabilities.
We have now jailbroken our Firestick by allowing for installing applications that aren’t available within the Amazon App Store.
Most guides stop after this, but I will take it a step further and show you how to install an alternative app store that will provide access to thousands of apps not available within the Amazon App Store.
I will also provide suggestions on which applications you should install onto your jailbroken Fire TV Stick so you can enjoy free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, and much more.
