The Amazon Firestick has become the most popular streaming device available today due to its low price and simple jailbreak process.
What is jailbreaking an Amazon Firestick, you may ask? It is the process of removing restrictions imposed by the manufacturer to allow for the installation of unauthorized software.
Technically, we aren’t actually jailbreaking the device because we aren’t installing modified firmware. But, this is how new cord-cutters search for this topic and that is how we came up with the title for this post. We are glad you found us!
When jailbreaking most electronics such as phones or tablets, many times we are required to install modified firmware. You can think of firmware as the operating system for the device. Fortunately, we aren’t required to do that with a Fire TV Stick!
Once we have jailbroken the Firestick, we can side-load applications onto the device that we normally can’t get through the Amazon App Store. By doing so, your Firestick will have access to thousands of free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, and more.
