History of Jailbreaking 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.
Since the Firestick 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 also opened the flood-gates for many other free and low-cost streaming applications that could be installed as well.
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is powered by the Android operating system which makes this the ideal device to use. This differs from other popular streaming devices such as the Roku and Apple TV where those boxes use their own OS.
Since the Fire Stick is powered by the Android operating system, it opens up a world of endless possibilities for those who jailbreak it. Before learning how to jailbreak Firestick, you must register for a free Amazon account. Might as well get a Prime account while you are at it. Amazon has taken over! You will use your Amazon login credentials when first setting up your Fire TV Stick.
