  1. I’ve gotten all the way to installing the apk, once I click on that my kodi download is not able to be highlighted and used to install… I’m using a Mac, how do I use Kodi for install of apk?

  2. On Firestarter, I change setting for my home button on my voice remote to fire kodi on startup and on first click, and fire tv on double click. The option still doesn’t work when i click the home button. I close app, it saves settings, i tried restarting the firestick. It still doesn’t work and home button always brings me to fire tv home.

    • H J C you have to go into the settings and allow installation from unknown sources then approve each add on the menus are different in 17

    • yes a PC or MAC or linux. there is a way to do it without a computer using ES FileExplorer and the web browser feature

    • Rad Macks thank you for the quick response! So if I have smart tvs with a web browser can I do it without a computer? i don’t have a pc just a bunch of smart tvs,tablets and phones. And the box of course.

    • Rad Macks ok I got the es explorer and added the kodi on there. I kept searching on youtube lol. Do I also need to add the fire tv? At this point the kodi on there and it’s just the blue screen with bubbles,no shows yet. I can’t find a tutorial for the fire tv add without computer.
