  1. I have kodi downloaded and I’m on the dashboard. Still not exactly sure how to get Exodus and the other stuff to download. When I click on Add-ons it just isn’t doing what it’s supposed to

    1. You can install Netflix and Prime Videos on your Firestick. It’s not necessary to use a VPN but, It’s always recommended to use.

  2. I have 2 firesticks I just installed Kodi on and when I try to install Apps (like Placenta) the zip file is always empty for both firesticks. I followed the steps to a tee for both (and even tried other apps on my 1st firestick) and zip files were empty as well. The zip file name is there but nothing inside the file?

  3. Be cautious calling these guides “Two minute” guides, because you have not considered many variables. I followed your guide and STILL TOOK much longer than 2 is why:

    1) Some Amazon Firesticks do not have a search feature…I know this first hand. As a result you have to find the Downloader app in Categories then utilities.
    2) But then guess what, if you are using a new Amazon account will need many settings such as a billing address associated with the account EVEN FOR A FREE DOWNLOAD of the app Downloader.

    My point is you can’t call any type of guide a Two minute guide and your instructions can never fit every scenario and therefore will never be a exact solution, so please state this and expand on the number of pre-conditions or Requirements needed before following your guide.
