Most users install Kodi on Firestick and other supported devices for better content. However, to improve streaming and access to wide quality content on Kodi, some of the best Builds come highly recommended. One of these popular Builds is Fire TV Guru. This guide will show you how to install the popular Fire TV Guru Build on Firestick and other devices to access a variety of popular addons.
About Fire TV Guru Build
It was developed by the famous FireTVGuru, so you should expect nothing but the best of it for your Amazon streaming devices! The Fire TV Guru Build is among some of the smaller in size Builds, with the full version roughly being around 300MB+. It offers a large media library of all the popular Kodi add-ons for stream-able content.
Its installation and setup are pretty easy and straightforward, and the interface is quite user-friendly – easy to navigate through. However, if you still encounter issues despite the detailed tutorial ahead, you could always get some troubleshooting remedies from the official Fire TV Guru website.
Use a VPN with Fire TV Guru Build
Kodi is a third-party open-source media player, and it does not come without risk! In fact, using the Fire TV Guru Build with it doesn’t make things better. It holds numerous streaming links that may or may not violate copyright laws.
TopVPNservice does not in any way influence or condone the violation of these laws. However, what we do recommend is using a VPN for Firestick or a Kodi VPN to help you maintain online privacy, security and more!
There are a couple of VPNs that are currently the best and that support Firestick, Fire TV apps, Builds, and Kodi. The links below will show you how to install them on your Fire TV:

Help! There are no streaming links available on Fire TV Guru!
Don’t panic! There are times when you won’t be able to see or retrieve any Fire TV Guru links despite having followed the tutorial precisely. This could be due to your ISP blocking it or geo-restrictions within the country you live in. You can bypass censorship by using a VPN. For this, we recommend using Surfshark.
Fire TV Guru is not working! What do we do?
There have been reports every now and then that Fire TV Guru is not working or no longer working. Either all the links are down and you could consider other alternatives like the No Limits Magic Build. However, you could also try turning off your Firestick; unplug the power source. Restart the router and start up your device, Kodi and the Fire TV Guru Build after 10-15 minutes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you install Fire TV Guru on Firestick without Kodi?
The Fire TV Guru Build is available on Kodi, among many other Kodi Builds. It offers a large portion of content through various add-ons, and links, and even allows you to change the design on Kodi through Skins. However, you can also install the add-on via the FireDL app.
How do you install Fire TV Guru on Firestick?

Can you jailbreak a Fire TV Smart TV?
You can’t actually jailbreak a Fire TV but you can Sideload apps or addons on your Firestick that are not available on the Amazon App Store. However, make sure you connect to a reliable VPN to access them, as not every third-part app is safe.
Can you add multiple Kodi Builds to Firestick?
Yes, you can add more than one Kodi Build to Firestick, but you cannot use the recommended tutorial above. It’s not something that can be done with a traditional method. Instead, you will need to use a Kodi fork. A Kodi fork is like Kodi but offers in-built access to pre-installed Builds.
