All of the content on the Jailbroken Amazon fire tv sticks, Amazon fire tv Boxes, and Android tv boxes stream all the content. They don’t download anything, so never slow down. Whether it’s through Netflix, Amazon Prime, Kodi, or other Android programs and Apks, everything on these units stream so high-speed internet is required.
We recommend at least 10mbps download speed. You also need a TV that had an HDMI outlet, which almost all TVs do today. The Amazon fire tv box does not come with an HDMI cable, but our Android Octacore unit does, and the stick plugs directly into HDMI so the cable is not required.
Note: the Alexa voice remote on Amazon units only work with select apps, it will not work with kodi.
Jailbroken is really a term that applies to units that don’t allow third-party software. A jailbreak is software manipulation that allows for installation of third-party apps. We use that term on our website because it’s a common search term when looking for units similar to ours. Amazon and Android software is open source which allows installation of third party applications, therefore we can program these units without any need for jailbreaking.
If for some reason the remote does not seem to work with the device, it simply needs to be programmed to the box. VERY SIMPLE TO DO
First press the home button to get out of Kodi and on to the Amazon fire tv Homepage.
Then Go to settings- applications- manage installed applications- Kodi- CLICK Force stop
Then click Clear Cache (NOT Clear Data, that will erase everything inside Kodi)
Finally, Launch Kodi and let it sit for 5 minutes so it can update without interruption.
NOTE: Anytime you launch Kodi, you want to wait a couple of minutes to make sure all the add-ons are updated, and then start using the unit. Using it while it’s trying to update add-ons often cause it to freeze
No. If you have an amazon prime account, you can use it and all its features, but you don’t need an Amazon prime account to use this unit. You can log in with a regular free Amazon account to use the Amazon fire tv unit and all the features that have been added. You can make a free account by going to Amazon.com on your computer or phone, and it will not ask for credit card information to make a basic Amazon account.
You never want to click Clear Data, it will erase everything installed inside Kodi.
You don’t want to click Clear Thumbnails inside the Raw maintenance App under the Programs tab.
If you’re inside Ares Wizard Program, you don’t want to install any wizard build, it will erase your current setup. You also don’t want to choose the Fresh Start option, it will erase everything installed in kodi
