Last Updated: May 12, 2020
Do you want to watch free content on your Fire TV? Are you tired of all the Amazon limitations? Then, you are probably thinking about jailbreaking your Firestick. Jailbreaking is a process you use to remove restrictions imposed by Amazon.
In other words, you allow installing unauthorized software. And yes! The Firestick can be jailbroken! Once you enable it, you can download apps that are not allowed by Amazon. These apps are something you normally can’t get via the Amazon app. They provide free content like TV shows, movies, channels, and more.
If you want to know how to do it, you’ve come to the right place. We will show you how to jailbreak the Firestick. All you have to do is follow these simple steps and you will download an app that allows you to jailbreak the Fire TV. So, let’s begin.
The first thing you need to do is go to the “Settings” menu on your Fire TV.
Scroll a bit until you find “Applications”. Click on it.
You want the “Collect App Usage Data” to be off. You don’t want Amazon to monitor what you are doing on your Fire TV.
Go back to the “Settings” menu. Go to “Device”
Turn on “Apps from Unknown Sources”. This option allows you to install apps that are not in the Amazon app store.
Go back to the home screen on your “Downloader” app and type in the following address “troypoint.com/app”. Make sure that you add no spaces or additional letters to the link. Confirm the link by pressing “Go” in the bottom right side of the window. You will notice that the app will instantly start downloading. That app is Aptoide TV. Follow the instructions and install it.
Before you launch the app, click “Done” after the installation is complete. Make sure to delete the installation file to avoid any problems with the app. Besides, you don’t need it and it will free up some much-needed space.
Go back to the home screen on your Fire TV and open the app you just downloaded. It is under the “Apps & Games” category. From here you can download apps that Amazon won’t allow. You can try out KODI, which is a free streaming platform. You can watch free movies, TV shows, and more. Or you can download other software Amazon would otherwise forbid.
If you followed all the steps, you’ve successfully jailbroken your Fire TV! That’s it! Now you can download any app you want. You can enjoy some free movies or other cool apps you wouldn’t get via Amazon. If you are looking for one particular app, search it on the Aptoide TV.
