Streaming is getting popular daily, and people use different platforms and devices to stream their favorite TV shows and movies. People use smart TVs, phones, tablets, laptops, and PCs.
Streaming devices like Amazon Firestick, Roku, and Chromecast make streaming effortless. I prefer Amazon Firestick because I can jailbreak it easily to unlock its full potential and features.
Also, it allows me to use several add-ons and build that provide unlimited HD content for free. I will tell you about Firestick, jailbreaking, and its add-ons and apps.
What Is an Amazon Firestick and How to Jailbreak It?
An Amazon Firestick is a streaming device that converts a traditional TV into a smart TV. It allows you to stream movies, shows, live sports, and more in one place. However, there are some restrictions, like you can not install third-party apps or some add-ons, and more.
However, you can bypass all restrictions by jailbreaking a Firestick. You can start setting up the FireStick for Jailbreaking by downloading the Downloader app and granting some permissions. Jailbreaking a Firestick is an easy process that benefits you in the long run.
It is a legal process, and you will not void the warranty of your device by doing this. You need to download an app that allows you to install third-party apps unavailable on the Amazon store.
After downloading and installing that app, you can go to the settings of your Firestick and find the Install From Unknown Resources option, which might be under the Preferences tab.
After clicking on it, select the app you downloaded to install third-party apps on your device and grant permission. After it, go to Settings again and find Privacy Settings. Turn off the Device Usage Data and Collect App Usage Data option. Also, turn off the Data Monitoring option available under the Data Monitoring tab.
That was it. You have successfully jailbroken your Firestick. Now, you can install these add-ons and apps to stream unlimited free content at HD quality. Let us look at the best add-ons you can use with the Firestick. You can use any app or media player to install and use add-ons, but I prefer Kodi because it is an open-source media player with an easy-to-use interface. You will find all these add-ons available for the Kodi media player.
Best Kodi Add-Ons
1) Exodus Redux
Exodus Redux is a decent add-on to stream movies and shows because it provides you with an unlimited amount of links to watch free content. However, it is unsafe for the same reasons.
It contains several links to streaming, which might leave your device vulnerable to malware and hackers. However, you can use a VPN to stay protected from viruses and malware.
Subscribing to a VPN is better than using a free one nowadays. Free VPNs are not much reliable these days as they can monitor and sell your data(Browser history/ Downloads, and others). Paid VPNs give you military-grade encryption and more benefits like,
- Access to geo-restricted content,
- No ISP or government restrictions,
- No internet throttling,
- High internet speed and security,
- Access to all websites,
- Discounts on online shopping and tickets, etc.
It is undoubtedly one of the best add-ons for Kodi and Firestick. It works on all Kodi-supported devices like mobile, Firestick, PC, and more. It works on both Kodi 18 and 19 and gives you an endless collection of shows and movies. It supports one-click-play and Trakt.
You can also use a VPN before using this add-on, as there might be several unverified links available that are not always safe for your device. I prefer using Express VPN for the fastest speed or Surfshark VPN, which gives the best value for money.
It is a complete Kodi all-in-one add-on you can find in the Narcasist Repo. It gives you several TV shows and movies like all other add-ons. However, it also provides you with anime, sports, and documents. It is one of the best add-ons for all-around entertainment.
This add-on also works with services like Alldebrid and Real Debrid. You can also access content from the Non-Debrid section if you do not have a subscription to these services.
These three were the best add-ons you can use with the Kodi media player. There are some apps you might love to use with a jailbroken Firestick.
Apps for a Jailbroken Firestick
1) Express VPN
As mentioned above, a VPN is necessary for streaming as some add-ons and apps can allow unverified streaming links. These links can contain copyrighted and illegal content, and you can get in legal trouble by streaming, downloading, or sharing them.
Express VPN has a lot of servers that give you high-level internet speed. You get an anonymous IP that allows you to stream geo-locked content avoiding government and ISP.
The downloader app is the best for those who prefer jailbreaking their Firestick. Several times you find yourself stuck in the situation where you want to install an app, but it is unavailable at the Amazon store. That is when the Downloader app comes into play, which allows you to download third-party apps on your Firestick.
You can enter the URL of the app (unavailable at the Amazon store) and enter it in the Downloader app. It will download the app for you, and you can install it on your Firestick.
Neither jailbreaking a Firestick nor installing unverified apps are illegal on Firestick. However, streaming, downloading, or sharing copyrighted and illegal content is.
