This tutorial will teach you How to Jailbreak Firestick in 2023 by adjusting developer options to enable unknown sources.

Don’t make the mistake and pay someone to do this for you.  This tutorial will teach you how to jailbreak your Firestick with detailed step-by-step instructions that anyone can follow.

By doing this, you will have the ability to install applications that are not available within the Amazon App Store.

Below, you will find the most popular ways of jailbreaking a Firestick in 2023.

Enabling Unknown Sources will provide access to apps with movies, TV shows, sports, live channels, games, and more.

This process removes restrictions imposed by Amazon to install 3rd party apps outside of the Amazon App Store.

In technical terms, jailbreaking a Firestick means modifying the device’s Operating System which is not the case for this guide.

However, this term has become popular for Fire TV Stick users which is why we titled our guide this way.

In this tutorial, we’re simply changing a few settings on the Firestick so our technique won’t harm your device in any way and you can always revert back to the original settings.

This guide works for any variation of Firestick including Fire TV, Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Televisions.

Unlike other guides, we provide both a video tutorial as well as a screenshot tutorial for your consideration.

How to Jailbreak Firestick with Step-by-Step Instructions

Is it legal to Jailbreak a Firestick?

The short answer is Yes, Jailbreaking a firestick is 100% legal. This is a question we receive on a daily basis.

Is Jailbreaking a Firestick Legal & Safe?

While jailbreaking became a popular term for Android mobile and iOS devices, the process for a Firestick is different.

iPhone and iOS users have likely come across the term jailbreaking, however, those who jailbreak iPhones and iPads are modifying the device’s firmware.

This typically requires a root of the device which can be a tricky process for novices and experts alike.

Fortunately, those who jailbreak their Firestick or Fire TV devices are not modifying them at all.

Jailbreaking a Firestick is a simple process that mostly involves changing a feature within the device settings to enable unknown sources.

By enabling apps from unknown sources within settings, we are allowing for the installation of 3rd party apps (APKs) that have not been vetted by Amazon.

This process was made available so app developers can test their products on Firestick and Fire TV devices to ensure they function properly.

Luckily, it also gives users like us the chance to install various apps that are not located within the Amazon App Store.

This opens up a whole new world of possibilities for viewing content as well as editing the user interface and much more.

While installing these apps is not in any way illegal, streaming some of the content within these is.

That is why it is important to only use these applications for Movies and TV Shows that are available in the public domain.

Because these apps come from unverified sources and developers, it is also vital to ensure you are connected to a VPN when accessing these applications.

Jailbreak Firestick Step 1 – Install Free Downloader App

The Downloader App is the hub for all jailbreaking our firestick and we will use it for installing applications that are not available in the Amazon App Store.

Installing the Downloader App is a simple process outlined below.

1. From the home screen of your device, hover over Find and click Search.

select search to jailbreak firestick

Change Privacy Settings

After we enable unknown sources, there are a few privacy settings we want to change. I personally don’t like the idea of Amazon knowing what we are doing on this device.

This is a simple process outlined below that will remove various settings implemented on Firestick or Fire TV.

If for any reason you choose to turn these back on, you can easily do so within settings.

1. First, hover over the settings icon and click Preferences.

What is a Firestick Jailbreak?

Jailbreak is the process of removing restrictions imposed by the manufacturer to allow for the installation of unauthorized software.

what is jailbreaking a firestick?

When we do this, we can install 3rd party applications not available within the Amazon App Store.

Once we jailbreak a Firestick, we can sideload applications onto the device that we normally can’t get through the major app stores.

By doing so, your Firestick will have access to thousands of free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, and more.

These apps are oftentimes referred to as “jailbroken apps” which we can easily install on our device.

Many of these apps are listed above but there are hundreds of other options available as well.

Best Apps for Jailbroken Firestick

This is a safe process and only involves changing a few security settings on the Firestick or Fire TV.

This is possible on Fire TV devices due to the fact that they are running on the Android operating system.

What Stores Carry Firesticks?

The Amazon Firestick has become the most popular Streaming Device available today due to its low price and simple jailbreak process.

If you don’t own a Fire TV Stick and you want to get started with this tutorial today, we have you covered.

Below are some retail stores that may carry this device.

Best Buy, Staples, Target, Fry’s, Radio Shack, GameStop, B and H, Amazon Books, Electronic Express, Shopko, Toys R Us, Sears, P.C. Richard & Son, Meijer, HH Gregg, Fred Meyer.

What stores carry Firesticks?

If you don’t have one of these stores near, you may purchase the Firestick directly through the Amazon website which provides fast shipping.

Or, if you are looking for a completely hands-free experience, you may want to consider jailbreaking the Amazon Fire TV Cube.

The Fire TV Cube has the same capabilities as the Firestick but with some added features.

This includes a built-in speaker, 16 GB of storage, and far-field voice control.

History of Jailbreaking a Firestick

The Firestick comes equipped with the Amazon App Store, which allows us to install applications easily onto our streaming device.

Each of the applications within this App Store must be approved by Amazon.

Some popular apps available in the Amazon App Store include HBO Max, Netflix, YouTube, Disney Plus, Downloader, and more.

Since the Fire TV Stick was first released in 2014, Amazon has taken a strong stance against applications that promote free and low-cost streaming capabilities.

The most notable ban was in June of 2015 when they removed the popular Kodi media center application from their app store.

When Kodi was removed from the Amazon App store, users started jailbreaking their Firesticks so that they could still install this popular application.

This opened the floodgates for many other free and low-cost streaming applications that could be installed as well after enabling apps from unknown sources on Fire TV devices.

Most people don’t realize that the Amazon Fire TV Stick is powered by the Android operating system.

This differs from other popular streaming devices such as the Roku and Apple TV which use their own operating system. Therefore, you can’t jailbreak a Roku device.

Roku vs Firestick – Why You Shouldn’t Buy a Roku

Since the Firestick is powered by the Android operating system, it opens up a world of endless possibilities for those who jailbreak it.

Android is the most popular operating system in the world to date, with over two billion active users.

Because of this popularity, there are literally millions of Android applications available that can all be installed onto a Firestick.

These Android applications are often referred to as APKs and can provide users with tons of free content.

We suggest doing your research and finding different apps that are best suited to your preference.

Overall, this guide has covered everything you need to jailbreak Firestick.

Simply enable apps from unknown sources and enjoy your improved streaming experience!

See our frequently asked questions below for more information.
