How to Jailbreak Firestick in March 2022 (Install Secret Apps in Seconds)

This article will teach you How to Jailbreak Firestick in 2022 and unlock secret apps.

By doing this, you will have access to thousands of free movies, TV shows, sports, live channels, games, and more.

Jailbreaking a Firestick is the process of removing restrictions imposed by Amazon to install 3rd party apps outside of the Amazon App Store.

The same process will also work on the Fire TV, Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Televisions as well as the all-new Fire TV Stick 4K Max.

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

Jailbreak Firestick Tutorial

Below, you will find both a video tutorial and a screenshot guide that will show you how to jailbreak a Firestick.

I suggest watching the video tutorial first because I go through important details that you won’t find within the screenshot guide.

How to Install VPN on Jailbroken Firestick

What is a Jailbreaking a Firestick?

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

Is Jailbreaking a Firestick Legal?

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

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

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

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.

Legal Copyright Disclaimer: TROYPOINT is a tech website that publishes tutorials, news, and reviews. We do not verify if apps, services, or websites hold the proper licensing for media that they deliver. We do not own, operate, or re-sell any streaming site, service, app, or addon. Each person shall be solely responsible for media accessed and we assume that all visitors are complying with the copyright laws set forth within their jurisdiction. Referenced applications, addons, services, and streaming sites are not hosted or administered by TROYPOINT.

One other thing to note when using these “unverified” applications is that we do not know the developers of these various apps.

This makes using a VPN in conjunction with them extremely important to protect your data and security.

Below, you will find a screenshot guide on how to jailbreak a Firestick. This will work on all Fire TV devices.

How to Jailbreak a Firestick – Screenshot Guide

Use the guide below to enable apps from Unknown Sources on your Amazon Firestick or Fire TV device.

This is the first step to “jailbreak” your device and unlock unlimited streaming capabilities.

1. From the home screen of your device, hover over the Find option.

2. Click Search.

3. Search for and select Downloader.

4. Choose the Downloader app.

5. Click Download.

6. Wait for the app to install.

7. You will then encounter Downloader Ready to launch message.

8. Return to the home screen and open Settings.

9. Click My Fire TV.

11. Click Install unknown apps.

12. Find the Downloader app and click it.

That’s it! After you jailbreak your Firestick, you can now side-load hundreds of 3rd party apps using Downloader on your streaming device.

We have now jailbroken our Firestick by allowing for the installation of applications that aren’t available within the Amazon App Store.

Jailbreak Firestick – How to Install Secret Apps

Most guides stop after this but I will take it a step further and show you how to install the best “secret” apps in just seconds with the TROYPOINT Rapid App Installer.

The Rapid App Installer is a free tool that will allow you to quickly install the very best applications on your jailbroken Firestick.

With these applications installed onto your jailbroken Fire TV Stick, you can enjoy free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, and much more.

1. Open the Downloader App and click the search box.

2. Enter the following URL – troypoint.com/tpapp and click Go.

Please note that you can choose from the list of what you would like to install. Feel free to install some of them or all of them.

It is always good practice to install at least two applications from the same category so if one doesn’t yield the results you are searching for, you can try the other.

Continue reading below for important privacy settings you should change on your jailbroken Firestick to protect yourself online.

Warning! Protect Yourself With IPVanish VPN

Most cord-cutters use a IPVanish VPN and rightfully so.

The free streaming applications, addons, and IPTV services that you use are usually hosted on insecure servers.

Without a IPVanish, your IP Address is being logged.

Your IP Address points back to your location and identity which compromises both your privacy and security.

Your current identifying IP Address is 54.74.151.154

When you use IPVanish, your real IP address will be converted into an anonymous new one.

IPVanish VPN will provide you with an anonymous connection to the Internet.

This will prevent your Internet Service Provider, app/addon developers, government agencies, and any 3rd party from logging what you’re accessing online.

The most popular VPN among cord-cutters is IPVanish due to their blazing fast speeds and zero log policy.

It’s important to use a VPN that is fast since we are streaming large HD files. Its also crucial to find one that keeps no logs of what their subscribers access while online.

Setting up IPVanish VPN on your streaming device is simple!

Step 1 Register for an IPVanish VPN account by clicking the link below.

This exclusive link provides you with a hefty discount.

Register for IPVanish Account & Save 65% with Yearly Plan

Step 2 – From the home screen hover over Find.

For those of you using Android TV devices, you can easily install the IPVanish app directly through Google Play Store.

Step 3 – Scroll down and click Search.

Step 4 – Type in “Ipvanish” and click the first option.

Step 5 – Click the IPVanish VPN app.

Step 6 – Click Download.

Step 7 – Once the IPVanish app installs, click Open.

Step 8 – Enter your IPVanish account information and click Log In.

You will get your username and password when you register for an account.

Step 9 – Click Connect.

Step 10 – Click OK.

Step 11 – Success! Your identifying IP Address has changed and you are now anonymous.

Click the Home Button on your remote and the VPN will remain running in the background.

Congratulations! You are now protected by IPVanish which means everything that you stream or access through your Firestick or Android TV Box is hidden from the rest of the world.

If you ever need to stop the VPN service, simply re-launch the application and click the DISCONNECT button.

You can now setup IPVanish VPN on all of your other Internet-connected devices. You can use IPVanish on unlimited devices!

Change Privacy Settings

Before we dive in any further, 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.

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

2. Choose Privacy Settings.

3. You will notice that all of these privacy settings are turned ON. 

4. We suggest turning OFF all of these privacy settings.

5. Click the back button on your remote and select Data Monitoring.

6. Turn Data Monitoring OFF.

7. Next, click the back button and select Featured Content.

8. Turn OFF both of these options.

Stremio

There are several reasons why Firestick users love Stremio. This app is a little different than most as it requires signing up for service.

However, users can sign up anonymously and use a VPN to enjoy flawless streaming with this app. Because the app requires registration, your content will sync across all streaming devices and be accessible on any platform.

Stremio offers add-ons similar to Kodi that users can install for Movies, TV Shows, and more. The best addon available is a torrent addon so be sure to have your VPN on when using this app.

Local Channels

Local channels are a common concern among new cord-cutters wanting to watch local programming on their jailbroken Firestick.

Especially with cable and satellite companies dropping more local channels from their offerings due to contract disputes.

Whether it’s your local FOX, ABC, NBC, PBS, or other sub-channels, the guide below will provide both free and paid options for streaming local channels.

How to Stream Local Channels Without Cable

You can also install an inexpensive IPTV Service (Internet Protocol Television), which gives users access to their favorite channels found in cable and satellite packages.

This is a great way to eliminate cable and cut the cord entirely! This is especially popular among sports fans looking to watch their favorite teams and the big PPV events.

For everything else, IPTV, check out our resource page below.

Best IPTV Services

Users can also install a Free IPTV service or application on a Firestick or Fire TV. However, these often buffer and are not as reliable as a paid IPTV Service.

Many Firestick users that stream unverified IPTV services/apps on their devices also run a VPN for IPTV.

Jailbroken Firestick Apps for Miscellaneous Utilities

Mouse Toggle

Some of the applications that you side-load onto your Firestick or Fire TV won’t work well with the remote control.

The reason for this is that many of these Android applications are designed for phones and tablets, not televisions.

The Mouse Toggle app will allow us to use a virtual mouse on the Firestick, Fire TV, or Fire TV Cube.  This is a must-have utility if you are going to jailbreak a Firestick or Fire TV.

Install Mouse Toggle on Firestick & Fire TV

MX Player

MX Player is an external video player that can easily be installed within your favorite app.

When using many of these free streaming apps on a Firestick, you will find most of the default video players don’t always work the best.

Oftentimes, using MX Player will result in little to no buffering for all your Movie and TV Show selections. This is a must-have application if you are going to jailbreak a Firestick.

Another added bonus of MX Player is its ability to integrate Subtitles. See our full MX Player tutorial below.

Install MX Player on Firestick/Fire TV

IPVanish VPN

TROYPOINT does not verify the legality or security of any applications covered on this Website. Users should always use a VPN in conjunction with these free or low-cost streaming solutions to protect their identity and security.

Your Internet Service Provider, government, app developers, and hackers may log what you are accessing online if you aren’t connecting through a VPN.

In addition, some of the apps that you would want to download are restricted by the Amazon App Store since they are unverified apps.

However, you can side-load them into your device without using the official app distribution method with the help of a VPN for Firestick, Fire TV, Fire TV Cube.

I use IPVanish on all of my streaming devices and I suggest that you do the same.

How To Install VPN For Firestick

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