A good number of Kodi users want to install Kodi on the Amazon Fire Stick. If you are among this class of people or in case you anticipate to acquire an Amazon Fire Stick soon, then you may want to consider the Fire TV GURU Build. It was developed by the FireTVGuru, hence making it a natural choice for the Fire TV Stick devices.
Update: This build is currently unavailable. See our list of the best Kodi builds for some alternatives.
FireTVGuru developed this special Kodi Build for the Amazon’s streaming devices. The installation file is small in size compared to most of the Kodi builds in the market today. Its full version is 300MB+ in size. With it, you will enjoy streaming and downloading media content without any issues.
Nevertheless, in an instance where you face installation challenges, you will get much of the troubleshooting information from the official Fire TV Guru website. We recommend doing a clean install of Fire TV GURU Kodi Build. This act will give it a complete spread on your Kodi. In any case, you may opt for the standard install that allows you to keep your existing add-ons and settings. If you are looking for more options, check out best Kodi builds here.
Fire TV GURU Build: What Should You Expect?
The Fire TV GURU Build packs a huge collection of popular Kodi add-ons. These add-ons are the source of its streaming content. Its user interface is simple and easy to navigate.
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.
Steps on How to Install Fire TV GURU Kodi Build on FireStick
Update: Fire TV Guru is not working anymore. Reportedly, FTG developer has stopped working on it and the server links are now down. You can check out other working builds here.
Now that you are well aware of what Fire TV Guru build is and what you can expect when it is installed on your Fire TV Stick, let’s start with installation guide. Please note that this guide will work on FireStick only. If you want to install on your Windows PC or MacBook, go with the second method below.
We will use FireDL app in this method which is considered easiest as you need to perform minimal actions from your side. We will download the Fire MC APK and it will install the Fire TV Guru build on your FireStick.
Step 1: Power On your Amazon Fire TV Stick. Search and install “FireDL” app from the Amazon App Store.
Step 2: Once you installed FireDL app, open it and then type 941172 in the URL box. It will automatically convert to APK download URL.
Step 3: FireDL will start downloading the Fire MC APK, so wait until it finishes.
Step 4: When the download completes, click option “Install”
Step 5: Once installed, select “Open”
Step 6: In a few seconds, you will see some instructions on your screen, just click “Dismiss”
Step 7: Now you can select your preferred Settings here and then hit “Continue”
Step 8: Open “Build Menu” and then select the Build you want to install. You will get the option to install “main” and “Lite” build.
Step 9: Now you should see two options “Fresh Install” and “Standard Install”. If you want to keep old add-ons and data, go for Standard Install, else Fresh install is good to go.
Step 10: Click “Yes” and then “Install”
Step 11: Click “Force Close”
Step 12: Now go to FireStick homepage and navigate to Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications. Here you should see “FireMC” app. Just open it.
Step 13: That’s all. Now you have Fire TV Guru build on your FireStick. Give some time for the build to prepare itself. I won’t mind waiting for another 15 minutes after opening Fire TV Guru for the very first time. Whenever you need to open Fire TV Guru on Fire TV Stick, you can simply follow Step 12 above.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
Step 8: Open the ExpressVPN app and Sign in using the email ID and password that you created while buying the ExpressVPN subscription.
Step 9: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That’s all. Your FireStick is now secured with the fastest VPN.

Step 7: Type “FTG” in the name field and then click OK.
Step 8: Go back to the main screen of Kodi app and click “Add-ons” menu on the left side-bar. Now look for the boxed-shape icon (package installer) on the top-left corner. Open it.

Step 15: Now select “Fresh Install” if you don’t want to keep your old add-ons/data, otherwise click “Standard Install”. I prefer Fresh install.
Step 16: Fire TV Guru (FTG) Wizard will now download the Fire TV Guru Build for Kodi Krypton. Once downloaded, it will extract the files and install it without any further actions from your side. At last, Kodi will reboot and you will see the Fire TV Guru Build has been installed on your FireStick.
If you get a popup with options “Reload Profile” and “Force Close”, click “Force Close” and then relaunch the Kodi app. After opening the Fire TV Guru build for the very first time, give it some time (15 minutes should be enough) before start using it.
Fire TV Guru Not Working
Some users have been reporting that Fire TV Guru is not working on their Fire TV Stick. I would recommend that you Turn Off your Fire Stick, unplug from the power source, turn off the router and turn On all of these back after 5 minutes. Now Fire TV Guru build should be working fine.
If in any case, Fire TV Guru isn’t working after following the instructions above, it is best to reinstall the build instead of finding the exact problem. It will save a lot of time.
Fire TV Guru: No Streams Available
If you are seeing No Streams available, then there are good chances that your ISP is blocking you from streaming content with FTG. You can always get a VPN to avoid such issues.
