For those that have installed Kodi on their Amazon Fire TV, here’s the ‘How To’ to add Kodi to Amazon Fire TV Home screen.

While watching the video, you’ll see the application we used is called ADBFire, however, you cannot link the app shortcut icon to Kodi..it no longer works, and this could be due to updated firmware on the Fire TV boxes.

So what we did in the second half of the video, was manually link the shortcut to Kodi. Was done by using Lama which is installed when using ADBFire to replace the icon with a Kodi icon.

For all the details, what the video, should be very simple to follow.
