HOW TO INSTALL KODI 18.9 ON A FIRESTICK - NEW UPDATE FOR 2021

in this video i'm going to show you how

to install the hot off the presses

kodi 18.9 leah

and by the end of the video i'm going to

show you how you can have

kodi looking like this but we're also

going to install the blank version

in case you want to install your own

add-ons or builds

if you're curious about what the best

builds and add-ons

are you can visit my website at

reviewvpn.com

builds to find articles and guides with

step-by-step screenshots on

50 plus of the best kodi builds you can

also type

reviewvpn.com add-ons

to access a page which will provide

information on 230 plus

of the best working kodi add-ons so the

other thing that i want to point out

just really quickly here i'm going to go

ahead and click the home button on my

remote

so i also want to point out at the start

of this video if you're ever

not happy with the way that cody is

working

like you installed a build or an add-on

that you really don't like and you just

want to reset it to the default state

but you don't want to go through that

installation process

you can quickly reset kodi from the home

screen of your fire stick

by scrolling all the way to the right

until you reach settings

then scrolling down once then scrolling

over to applications

clicking on it scrolling down to manage

installed applications

clicking the center button then you

would just go to

kodi click the center button

and go to clear data and so when you

clear the data it's just going to reset

cody

to the brand spanking

new state and we can see that this is a

nice clean uh fresh install

of cody it asks us for all the same

permissions

so i'm going to reset my fire stick and

get started and show you guys how to get

kodi

18.9 in a jiffy

i'm going to get started from the home

screen of the fire stick by scrolling

all the way to the right until i reach

settings

once i've reached settings i'm going to

want to scroll down one

and then i'm going to scroll most of the

way to the right

until i reach my fire tv once i've

reached my fire tv i'm going to go ahead

and click the center button on

it at this point i want to scroll down

one

and then click the center button on

developer options and here we're

adjusting

settings to allow the fire stick to

accept third-party applications

that are not in the amazon app store so

kodi is not in the app store so we need

to adjust these settings but the good

news is we only need to adjust these

settings

one time and so let's do that by

clicking the center button on

adb debugging and then let's scroll down

one and then click the center button on

abs from unknown sources

this one gives us a pop-up we want to go

ahead and prove the pop-up by clicking

the center button one more time

now we're done adjusting those settings

and i'm going to go ahead and click the

home button

on my remote now here we do want to

search that official amazon app store

we're going to search for an application

called downloader downloader

acts as a browser but unlike the other

browsers in this app store so firefox

and silk

downloader will actually download files

from the internet

by the time i type do downloader pops up

as a suggestion i'm going to scroll

down to that suggestion highlight it and

then click the center button

now i'm going to recognize downloader by

this bright orange icon right here i'm

going to go ahead and click the snare

button on it

i'm going to click the center button on

this next option here it might either

say download or get

it's the exact same difference it

doesn't take very long we're already

ready to open it so i'm going to go

ahead and click this enter button

then we'll have two pop-ups to approve

since our whole

purpose behind downloader is to allow it

to download files to our fire stick we

want to go and approve this one by

clicking the start button on allow

this is a pop-up from the developer we

want to go ahead and approve it by

clicking the center button

now we want to scroll up once to

highlight this box

right here you're going to use

downloader to get an application called

file linked file linked allows average

joes like me

to create these awesome curated app

stores

if you watch many streaming videos

you'll run across potentially

hundreds of different filing store codes

but i'm going to give you guys the very

best

one so to get file linked we are going

to type

g e t and then

period f i

l e l

i n k

e d and then dot

c o m so once again it's get dot filing

dot com

once you've got that type just go ahead

and scroll to the word go

and then click the center button this

will automatically start this roughly

11.2 megabyte download we can see that

it's already done on mine

so i'm going to scroll once to the right

highlight the word install

and then click the center button now

that it's installed instead of

open it right away i want to highlight

the word done and then click the center

button on that

that's because you always want to delete

the apk files after

installing a new app you no longer need

those apk files and there's such a

limited amount of storage on the fire

stick that even 11.2 megabytes does make

a difference

so let's do that by scrolling once to

the right highlight the word delete and

then click

the center button scroll once to the

left highlight the word delete and then

click the center button

now i'm going to go ahead and click the

home button on my remote

and from here i'm going to want to

scroll down to the second row

on my device it's called your apps and

channels it might be called your apps

and games on your device

same difference we're just going to

scroll down to that and because i have

so many applications installed

i can scroll once to the left and then

click on the see all button

if i had fewer applications installed i

would scroll to the right

until i made it to file linked so new

apps are at the bottom so i'm going to

scroll once to the left

because i plan to use file linked a lot

and i recommend that you use it a lot

let's go ahead and click the button

that's right of the home button

now this gives me the option to either

move which would let me pick

any spot that i wanted or i can just do

move to front so i'm going to go with

that option

and then go up there and let's open file

link for the first time

by clicking the center button now here

i'm going to give you guys the stream at

all store code

up to 245 applications and websites and

growing

please subscribe to the channel if you

use this store it does

take an inordinate amount of work to

keep it updated on a daily basis

so by subscribing it is a small gesture

that shows us that you appreciate that

work and we should continue doing it

so this store code is going to be six

seven six

six four five three

seven once again six seven six six four

five three seven

so i'm gonna scroll down highlight the

word next and then click the center

button on it

now i'm going to click the center button

one more time it's going to be on

continue

so i'm going to go ahead and get the

first application in the store this is a

vpn service and we can tell that i'm

getting it because the green bars are

surrounding it

i'm going to click the center button

this is a pop-up from the developer

right here so i'm going to go ahead and

click

on the word dismiss with the center

button

so i am getting the vpn service because

it

hides all your online activities and it

allows you to access additional streams

and content that's very important with

kodi because you often don't know

where these links are coming from so now

that that is downloaded i'm going to go

ahead and click the center button one

more time

scroll once to the right highlight the

word install and then click the center

button

now i'm going to highlight the word done

and then click the center button on that

by the way feel free to get any

application in this store to click on

any link one of the ones that i'm most

proud of is right here at the top

if you're interested in additional

filing codes if you type

reviewvpn.com codes in any browser

you can access our list of the 50 best

filing codes we update it like two or

three times a month

we're really proud of that list and i

just want to point out here especially

this top section here if you're getting

cody for free movies and tv shows if

you're not

happy with it or if you just want

alternatives

all these apps in this section here are

great cinema hd

nova tv and we frequently provide you

with the ad free version

xenotevi is great viva tv is great

streamio can provide you movies and tv

shows

in addition to adult content at a very

high quality

strix has a lot of adult content be tv

great for movies and tv shows

pikachu isn't the prettiest thing but

man is it simple

and it gives you high quality movies

film plus

is coming on strong and if you get the

modded version it is

ad free so like i said pretty much any

of these are pretty darn awesome

then there's free cable websites right

here

along with a bunch of free sports

football season

you should just and you can also click

on these to get to those build

and add-on lists that i mentioned

earlier

so we are at our target but i recommend

that you go through the whole filing

store and so with the green bars

surrounding it i'm going to go ahead and

click the center button

now this version of kodi is directly

this link goes

to the mayor site on cody.tv so this is

the absolute official version

of kodi 18.9 and now that it's finished

downloading i can recognize that because

it switched to a play button at the end

i'm going to go ahead and click the

center button one more time

scroll once to the right highlight the

word install and then click the center

button

now i'm going to click the center button

on the word done and i'm done with the

file link store so i'm going to go ahead

and click the home button on my remote

and i want to scroll back to the second

row again your apps and channels

i'm going to scroll once to the left and

then click the center button

on see all i'm going to scroll once to

the left

and then i'm going to take the next two

minutes to set up the vpn

if you already have a vpn if you're not

interested please just go ahead and skip

ahead in the video

so the first thing the vpn is going to

ask for is a username and password

you can get that by typing reviewvpn.com

deal in any browser or clicking on the

link in the description

we currently have an offer that will

save you 73 percent

which is exclusive to my store now part

of the reason i'm showing you this

process is because i recommend

changing a few settings within the iep

vanish interface i also want to point

out that i'm obfuscating this section

right here

and that's because it shows my true ip

address which you can think of as being

like your digital fingerprint

or your home address you're leaving that

fingerprint on

everything you touch online and that's

the main reason that you

want to use a service like this with

cody because you don't necessarily know

where those links are coming from and

having the ability to access the

additional content is

also a very nice feature so i'm going to

start out by scrolling all the way to

the upper right which is the cog wheel

over there i'm going to click the center

button on that i'm going to check this

first option here which says start

ipvanish and i'm going to scroll down to

split tunneling

and then click on that so you want to

use the vpn service with

third-party apps so think cinema hd

cyberflix

aos tv and cody but if you're happy with

the way that netflix

prime video hulu and youtube are working

just go ahead and check the box next to

that and they'll continue to work the

same way that they always have

so now i'm going to go ahead and click

the back button and the last option that

i'm going to check

is scramble so i'm going to go ahead and

check that and this will help if you

ever have trouble

connecting to the service i click the

back button one more time i'm going to

scroll over

highlight the word connect and then

click the center button on that i'll get

this pop up one time only i'm going to

scroll down

and then click the center button on ok

one of the things i love about this

service is it connects in just a couple

seconds and i can now show you this ip

address right here

because it is connected with ipvanish

and they're storing no logs of what i do

online

so this cannot be traced back to me it's

going to go ahead and click the home

button

and i'm going to scroll down to your

apps and channels one more time

i'm going to scroll once to the left

click the center button on see all i'm

going to scroll once to the left

here's cody i'm going to go ahead and

move it to the front

and let's run cody for the first time

i'm going to click the center button on

continue i'm going to click the center

button on allow

and we can see right here that it is

18.9

so the first thing that i'm going to do

and i'm going to try to slow down at

this point because i know that the kodi

interface

can be really confusing especially if

you're new to it

so the first section we want to click on

is this settings button right here

so let's go ahead and click the center

button now i want to scroll

all the way to the bottom right it says

system down there

so now that i'm there i'm going to go

ahead and click the center button

now i want to scroll down to where it

says add-ons right here

because we want to allow unknown sources

just like we did on our fire stick we

want to allow unknown sources

on cody and so i'm going to go ahead and

click the center button and approve this

pop-up by scrolling once to the left and

then clicking the center button on yes

so now we're done adjusting that setting

so i'm going to just click the back

button

and then i want to scroll over here to

the top left where it says

file manager so i'm going to go ahead

and click the center button on that

i'm going to scroll down once to where

it says add source

and then click the center button i'm

going to go ahead and click the center

button one more time where it says

none and here we are going to add

a url so the url that i am going to give

you

is for the xanax

build repository xanax is

arguably the most popular build many

people would say

xenon is the most popular build that

xenon is currently

having some issues where it's asking for

a username and password so essentially

right now

xenon is broken i'm sure it will be

fixed very

shortly but as of right now

and in my humble opinion xanax is the

way to go

with any kodi installs and we're gonna

do this by typing

http colon forward slash

forward slash xanax

slash repo so i still

have my dot com

so we need an o an m a slash

and then the word repo

right here and so now that i have that

typed i'm going to scroll over to the

word

ok and then click the center button on

it

now i can name it whatever i want so i

could change this to say

xanax but i'm just going to go ahead and

leave it on repo to speed this video

along

i'm going to scroll down and then click

on the word okay

so now we're done adjusting those

settings and i'm going to go ahead and

click on the back button

now i'm going to scroll once to the

right it's going to be add-ons

right here i'm going to go ahead and

click the center button on that

so i want to scroll down to where it

says install from zip

and we'll want to scroll down to

whatever we

named that source so in my case i left

it as repo

so let's go ahead and scroll down click

the snare button on that

and here we can see the xanax repo

zip so let's go ahead and click the

snare button on that what we're waiting

for right now

is a pop-up in that upper right hand

corner

we just got that so we're good to go so

at this point we want to scroll

up once and then click the center button

on install from repository

so we can see here that we have

the xanax repository right at the bottom

so let's go ahead and click the center

button on it

and this part was really confusing to me

when i first got into cody because it's

like

i'm using kodi for videos shouldn't i go

to video add-ons

the answer is no because currently we

are searching for a build wizard

which is considered a program add-on so

we're going to go

down to this section here and then click

the center button

here we see our xanax wizard so we want

to scroll

down to that and then click the center

button we want to click the center

button

on the word install over there and now

that it's done

installing we'll get this pop up here

we want to just go ahead and click the

center button on continue

we want to click the center button on

build menu

now you can honestly pick any host that

you want

i'm just going to go with host number

three because it was treating me

really well earlier i was getting some

great speeds and we're going to

pick a fresh install and then click the

center button on

it now we want to scroll once to the

left highlight the word continue and

then click the center button

now our download will automatically

start

and this is the section that i'm going

to go ahead and speed up for you guys

so once all the files are done

downloading we're going to see another

box pop

up that's very similar and it's going to

be installing

all those different files so we can see

in this case

that there are thousands and thousands

of files to install fortunately it only

takes a couple minutes but i am going to

fast forward

through this section also now that the

files are done

installing we are almost where we need

to be

at this point we're going to get the

option to reload profile or force close

you

always want to pick force close so let's

go ahead and click the center button

on that and then we just want to open

cody right back up again and we can

recognize that our install went

successfully because we see this

beautiful screen

right here and we get that little jiggly

music

so it's super happy so the only thing i

want to point out at this point

is you typically just want to leave cody

alone

after you install a build for about five

minutes because it's gonna start

updating all kinds of add-ons and that's

why it looks a little bit

different than what it did at the start

of the video those movies will start

populating up here

we can see that we have sections for tv

shows family

sports which is like an iptv paid

cable service there's an actual sports

section

a free tv section over here music

best with rd so this means realdobridge

which is a

paid service similar to the vpn but it

can

solve all your buffering issues and give

you access to the highest 4k

quality links it does that by giving you

premium access to

all of the best cyber lockers i hope you

found this video

helpful i would love it if you would

comment on what you think

are the best builds out on what you

think are the best

add-ons out like i said at the start of

the video

we do a lot of work in that area so it

would help us to know what your feedback

is

as to what is the absolute best right

now

if you found the video helpful please

give it a thumbs up

please subscribe to the channel and most

importantly

have an excellent day thank you
