When your Amazon FireStick is “jailbreak,” it gives you access to a world of entertainment. You can easily download and use apps that aren’t on the Amazon App Store or that the company took down because they broke the rules in the past.
Don’t worry too much about the word “jailbreak” here. Some sellers do this to get your attention. It’s not like rooting an Android phone or getting an iPhone out of jail. The only thing you have to do to jailbreak a FireStick is changed a few settings in the FireStick’s menu so you can install third-party apps that aren’t in the Amazon App Store.
Since Fire OS is based on the Android operating system, all you need to stream an app on the FireStick is the app’s verified APK file from the web.
I think that the word “jailbreak” is being used wrongly for FireStick. When you “root” an Android phone or “jailbreak” an iOS device, you change the source code and put unauthorized firmware on the device to make it work better. It’s dangerous for a normal user, and it makes your device’s warranty useless.
You can’t change the source code for the system or install firmware from a third-party source on an Amazon Fire TV Stick. You are just changing some settings so that you can install apps from unknown sources. A FireStick is easy to get out of jail. And yes, jailbreaking a Fire Stick is safe and legal (relieved?).
Best Apps for Jailbroken FireStick
If you followed our guide above to jailbreak the FireStick, you are in for a real treat here. You have given your FireStick access to a lot of popular movies and TV shows that can be streamed without limits. I really think you should check out our guide on how to jailbreak a FireStick because it has some important apps for jailbroken FireSticks that other guides don’t.

Check out the following apps for a FireStick that has been jailbroken:
Amazon doesn’t let some apps into the official App Store for FireStick for a reason. Some of the content that these apps stream might not be legal in some places.
Getting to this kind of content through an IPTV app or a Kodi add-on could get you in trouble with the law in the future.
The government in your area and your Internet service provider (ISP) can see what you are watching on FireStick and what your IP address is. To hide your IP address and browse apps safely, you need to pay for a VPN service like ExpressVPN.
ExpressVPN has fast speeds and strong security features, and you can get your money back in 30 days if you don’t like it. What else? The ExpressVPN app can be found in the Amazon App Store.
So, before you start streaming on your Fire Stick or Fire TV, let’s look at how to use ExpressVPN to keep other people from seeing what you’re doing.
Step 1: CLICK HERE to sign up for ExpressVPN. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee, which means you can use it for free for the first 30 days. If you are not happy with how it works, which is very unlikely, you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Turn on your Fire TV Stick, go to Find, and then click the Search button.
Step 3: Now, type “Expressvpn” into the search box and choose “Express VPN” from the list of results.
Step 4: Click Download or Get to install the ExpressVPN app on your Fire TV/Stick.
Step 5: Open the app and enter the login information you made when you signed up for ExpressVPN. Click Sign in.
Step 6: To connect to a VPN server, click the power icon. So, that’s it. Your connection is now safe with the fastest and best VPN for FireStick.
You will need an app that lets you download and install APK files from the web on a jailbroken FireStick. We recommend the Downloader app for that because it’s free, easy to use, and does the job.
Users can open the Downloader app, go to a website, download an APK file, and install the app on FireStick all within a couple of minutes.
Don’t forget to delete the APK file after the installation is done. It’s no longer needed, and it will free up space on the FireStick.
So far, we’ve talked about a VPN app and software that lets you put apps on a FireStick that has been “jailbroken.” Those are important apps for your FireStick, but you’re not here for that, right? Let’s talk about some of the best FireStick apps for streaming media that aren’t on the Amazon App Store. This is why most people jailbreak their FireSticks in the first place.
3. Cinema HD APK
Cinema HD APK is at the top of our list of recommended jailbroken FireStick apps. The Cinema HD streaming app lets users get links from various places on the web.
Depending on the source, you can stream your favorite movies and TV shows, watch videos, and even save content for later. You can also play content with subtitles and more features in the Cinema HD app with external players like VLC and MX player.
Cinema APK is supported by a team of developers who work hard to make it better over time. Find out how to put Cinema APK on FireStick by reading our post about it.
4. Cyberflix TV
Cyberflix TV has a lot of sources and wants to make sure that FireStick streams work perfectly. Everything from movies to TV shows is in the library. And yes, it is compatible with Real-Debrid.
At first glance, you’ll see that it looks a lot like the popular Terrarium TV app. But that won’t bother you at all because it gets the job done.
There are no ads, the video quality is good, there are a lot of video sources, and subtitles are built in.
TeaTV is yet another third-party streaming service that has a beautiful user interface and makes it easy to find movies and TV shows.
Every day, TeaTV adds new TV shows and movies to its library. From the links the app finds, you can expect video quality of up to 4K. The app also lets you download content to watch it when you don’t have internet access. This is a good thing for people whose internet connections are slow.
Overall, TeaTV is a must-have add-on for a FireStick that has been jailbroken, and installing it is safe.
The BeeTV streaming app is the next one on the list. Now, this app isn’t as popular as Cinema HD or Cyberflix, but it’s still a good choice for your FireStick.
There are a lot of high-quality movies and TV shows on the service. It’s basically a media tool that searches file-hosting websites for links to movies and TV shows and automatically sorts them into different categories in the app.
BeeTV can also be used with video players from outside the app. We like that the app brings in HD posters of the content so it’s easy to see what’s available.
Kodi is one of the most downloaded jailbroken apps for FireStick. Let’s go back a bit.
Amazon took the popular Kodi media center app off the App Store in June 2015. That made a lot of people angry, and it was the start of the jailbreaking trend on FireStick.
Kodi is basically a single place where you can get all of your entertainment needs met. You can make your FireStick experience even better with a few Kodi add-ons.
Let’s talk about our favorite and most recommended Kodi addons.
- The Oath
Both Kodi 19 Matrix and Kodi 18 Leia work with the Oath. It has a lot of links and streams that work without buffering so that you can have a good time.
Asgard is a Kodi addon that used to be called Odin. It has everything you need. It makes it easy to find free movies, TV shows, and other things by putting them in neat categories like sports, news, and entertainment. The add-on can also be used with paid services like AllDebrid.
4K addon for Kodi is great for people who have a 4K TV at home, as the name suggests. It helps people find movies and TV shows that are in 4K.
- The Crew
The Crew is a small add-on that has everything you could want. The add-on lets you stream sports content as well as movies and TV shows.
If you want to watch live TV on Kodi, you can stop looking and just install the TVOne addon. It has different categories where you can watch free movies and TV shows in many languages.
- Apex Sports
Sports fans! Here’s one for you. It is one of the best FireStick add-ons for Kodi that lets you stream sports. You can watch your favorite sports league’s highlights and reruns.
Sportowa is yet another Kodi add-on that aims to make watching sports on FireStick better. It has a good number of sports channels that are broadcast live.
8. Streamz HD
HD Streamz is all about getting TV channels in HD quality, as the name suggests. The app has thousands of satellite TV channels, movies, and TV shows from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and other countries in Europe.
The only thing wrong with HD Streamz is that its interface is old. We hope the developers will learn from other apps and give them a new look.
There are also Radio and On-demand tabs on HD Streams.
9. Live NetTV
Live Net TV is an IPTV provider that has more than 800 live channels, movies, and TV shows in different categories like News, Kids, Entertainment, Sports, and Adults.
The people who made the app have promised to add new content every day. On the platform, they are also taking requests to host channels. The app is free to download and use, and it works with Chromecast.
10. Ola TV
Ola TV is another great app for a jailbroken Fire TV that lets you stream TV channels, movies, and TV shows. The app has a huge list of satellite channels from places like the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
The company has given the user interface a new look and made it easier to use from a distance. One of the must-have apps for a jailbroken FireStick is Ola, which makes it easy to watch TV channels.
TVTap is one of the best jailbreak apps for FireStick, so it is easy for us to recommend it. The app has a good number of live TV channels from the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
The company has a special APK file for FireStick that is made with big screens and remote controls in mind. So, the UI is a joy to use and move around in.
The movies, TV shows, and channels are neatly separated into Kids, News, Sports, Documentaries, Movies, and more. On the app, it won’t be hard to find content that’s useful.
12. IPTV Services
IPTV services are definitely becoming more popular than ever before. With a good IPTV provider, you can pay a small fee and get access to thousands of live movies, TV shows, and channels from a single source, taking your streaming experience to the next level.
Internet Protocol television is what IPTV stands for. It lets you watch TV shows and movies over IP networks. What you get in the end depends on what kind of IPTV service you have.
They all have different kinds of content, and it can be hard to figure out which IPTV service is best for you. Find the best IPTV services for FireStick by reading our post on the subject.
Real-Debrid is a service that stops streaming apps and Kodi add-ons from buffering.
Basically, the app makes sure that the best links are used when streaming media from the web. Just turn on Real-Debrid in the add-ons or streaming apps for Kodi, and you’ll see a ton of new places to watch or download content.
The app only costs $5 per month, and if you’ve jailbroken your FireStick, it’s definitely worth using so you don’t have to wait for videos to load.
14. Silk Browser
Silk Browser is made just for Amazon products, like FireSticks and Fire HD tablets.
It’s a web browser that lets you surf the web just like you can on your phone or computer. Check out our list of the best browsers for FireStick and how to set them up.
15. Mouse Toggle
Not all apps are made with the FireStick interface in mind. Some of the apps do need a mouse to work perfectly. The original FireStick remote does not have a mouse cursor.
Installing the Mouse Toggle app will let you use the FireStick remote’s mouse function. The app makes streaming on a FireStick 4K or Fire TV Cube a lot better.
16. VLC Media Player
Does this need to be started? On all platforms, VLC is the most popular video player. When you combine this open-source software with popular jailbroken FireStick apps, you can use it to play media on the device.
With some apps, it’s easy to skip the ads in video players so you can watch media on a big screen without buffering.
