How To Install AdbFire Kodi Push Zip Files to a Amazon Fire Stick

Abdfire guides there is no repo and we need to download and install a zip file. Some people have a Fire Stick and downloading a zip to their device is not easy, so this guide will show you how to download the zip file to your computer and then push that zip file to your Fire Stick so you can install it with adbfire.

First you need to enable ADB Debugging and Apps from Unknown Sources on your Firestick which you can do by following the next steps:

  • Choose Settings
  • Choose System
  • Choose Developer Options
  • Choose Apps from Unknown Sources and turn On and Choose ADB Debugging and turn On
  • You will now see a warning message regarding unknown sources. Choose Ok you can turn off unknown sources later but we need it on to install Kodi

Now we need to find the IP Address of your Fire Stick. If you know how to find the IP address of anything on your network then you can skip these steps but if you don’t then this will show you how. If you know how it would be handy to go on your router and make the Fire Stick always use the same IP so you don’t have to look each time you want to push a file.

  • Choose Settings
  • Choose System
  • Choose About
  • Choose Network and make a note of the IP Address

I would now download the zip file that you intend to push to your Fire Stick save it somewhere you can easily access. In this example I will use the SportsDevil zip which I have downloaded to my computer.

Now we need to download and install adbFire:

Once you have downloaded and installed adbFire open it and you will see a window similar to the following

  • Choose New
  • In Description give your Fire Stick a name, in Address type the IP you made a note of earlier & select Save (you can ignore the rest)
  • Choose Connect
  • You should now see the IP Address of the Fire Stick listed in Connected Devices
  • Choose Preset Directories
  • Choose sdcard from the dropdown menu
  • Choose Push
  • Navigate to where you have downloaded the zip file you wish to push and select it (it will look different depending on which OS you are using)
  • You will now be asked to confirm if you want to push the file. Select Yes
  • Choose OK when the push confirmation box appears

The zip has now been pushed to your Fire Stick. You just need to install it.
Install Abdfire Kodi:

  • Open your Home Screen
  • Choose System
  • Choose Addons
  • Choose Install from zip file
  • Choose External Storage
  • You will now see the zip you pushed. Select it
  • Wait for Addon enabled notification

The zip file is now installed. Yes this was a long process but after a couple of goes it will only take you a minute to push any zip file you want to your Fire Stick with adbfire.
