To fully jailbreak a Firestick, follow these steps:

1. Go to Settings: Go to the home screen of your Firestick and navigate to the Settings tab.

2. Access My Fire TV: Scroll right and select the option “My Fire TV” or “Device” depending on your Firestick model.

3. Open Developer Options: Scroll down and click on “Developer Options” to access the developer settings.

5. Privacy Settings: Go back to the Settings page and select “Preferences” followed by “Privacy Settings”.

6. Disable Device Usage Data: Turn off the option “Device Usage Data” to prevent Amazon from collecting data on your device usage.

7. Disable Collect App Usage Data: Scroll down and disable the option “Collect App Usage Data” to prevent Amazon from collecting data on your app usage.

Now that you have enabled the necessary settings, you can proceed with installing a third-party app store or individual apps to fully jailbreak your Firestick. Here are two popular methods:

Method 1: Install a Third-Party App Store:

8. Install Downloader: Go back to the home screen and search for “Downloader” in the search bar. Install the app from the Amazon Appstore.

9. Launch Downloader: Open the Downloader app and enter the URL of the third-party app store you want to install. For example, you can use “” for the APKPure app store.

10. Install the App Store: Follow the on-screen instructions to download and install the third-party app store.

11. Install Apps: Once the third-party app store is installed, you can browse and download a wide range of apps, including streaming apps, games, and utilities. Simply search for the desired app and follow the prompts to install it.

Method 2: Sideloading Individual Apps:

8. Install Apps2Fire: On your Android device, search for “Apps2Fire” in the Google Play Store and install the app.

9. Enable ADB Debugging: On your Firestick, go back to the Developer Options and enable “ADB Debugging”.

10. Find IP Address: In the Firestick’s Developer Options, note down the IP address of your Firestick.

11. Connect Apps2Fire: Open the Apps2Fire app on your Android device and go to the “Setup” tab. Enter the IP address of your Firestick and tap “Save”.

12. Install Apps: In the “Local Apps” tab of Apps2Fire, you can browse and select APK files from your Android device. Choose the apps you want to install and tap “Install” to sideload them onto your Firestick.

Remember, jailbreaking your Firestick gives you access to a wide range of apps and customization options, but it may void your warranty and could potentially expose your device to security risks. Proceed with caution and only install apps from trusted sources.
