 If you’ve jailbroken your Amazon Fire TV Stick, you’ve unlocked its full potential, including the ability to sideload apps. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Enable Apps from Unknown Sources:
    • Go to Settings on your Fire TV Stick.
    • Select My Fire TV or Device & Software (depending on your device).
    • Choose Developer Options.
    • Turn on “Apps from Unknown Sources”.
  2. Install Downloader:
    • Downloader is a free app available in the Amazon Appstore.
    • Search for “Downloader” using the search function on your Fire TV Stick.
    • Install it.
  3. Use Downloader to Sideload Apps:
    • Open the Downloader app.
    • In the app, enter the download link (URL) for the APK file of the app you want to sideload.
    • Download the APK file.
    • Install the app by following the prompts.
  4. Install APKs from Android Devices:
    • If you prefer to sideload from your Android device, enable “ADB Debugging” in the Fire TV Stick settings.
    • Connect your Android device to the same network as your Fire TV Stick.
    • Use an app like Apps2Fire to send APK files from your Android device to the Fire TV Stick.

Remember that sideloading allows you to install third-party apps not available in the official Amazon Appstore. Remember to use a VPN for FireStick, like Surfshark, when using unofficial apps. Enjoy exploring new apps and customizing your Fire TV Stick!
