How To Install eMovieLane On Android TV / Fire TV or Fire Stick

Step 1: Install APK Downloader on FireStick

Jailbreaking is all about installing third-party APKs on FireStick devices for free streaming. Unfortunately, the Amazon App Store does not have these apps.

To install third-party streaming apps, you need a facilitating application. That’s because Amazon Fire TV Stick does not support direct downloads through the browser (like you do on your Android mobile).

The app from which we will install all our jailbreak apps is Downloader.

So, here is what we will do in this section – Install the Downloader app from Amazon App Store.

Let’s get on with it now.

1. Go to the home screen of your Amazon Fire TV Stick.

Note: Depending on your Fire TV OS version, your home screen may appear slightly different.

7. Dismiss any prompts displayed when you use the Downloader app for the first time. But if it asks you to give it any permissions, ensure you Allow them all.

Later, you will start by clicking the section of the app highlighted in the image below. However, before that, we need to take care of something else. So, jump to the next section.

Step 2: Setting Up FireStick for Jailbreaking

First, you need to tweak a Fire TV Stick / Cube setting to allow the jailbreak process to work.

This native setting is all you need to tweak to get started.

You are NOT changing system settings or manipulating operating system core files.

This jailbreak hack is more straightforward than most people think. You don’t even need a computer. All you need is your FireStick, its remote, and an internet connection.

1. Power on your Amazon Fire TV Stick and wait for this home screen to load up.

Note: The following is the image from the updated FireStick OS. If you have the older version, it will look a little different.
