Below you’ll find step-by-step instructions to allow your device to accept the installation of apps from “unknown sources” or apps not on the Amazon app store. Some people may refer to this method as “jailbreaking” and, actually, charge money to do this simple task.

Step 1.

From the home-screen/main menu area navigate to the far right of the menu to find Settings.

Step 2.

Now click My Fire TV.

Step 3.

Select Developer Options.

Step 4.

Click Apps from Unknown Sources.

Step 5.

Select the option to Turn On.

NOTE: This must be completed on every Amazon device in order to install our apps.

You’ve now “jailbroken” your device.

That’s all there is to it. No more, no less. See? There was no reason to pay someone to do that for you. Installing 3rd party apps is almost just as simple. START HERE.
