First you must enable ADB Debugging in settings
With ADB debugging enabled, you can remotely install (i.e., sideload) apps onto your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, Once enabled you can keep it on all the time since it can help with any future modding or access you may need.
- From the Fire TV or Fire TV Stick’s home screen, scroll down to ‘Settings”.
- Next, scroll to the right and select “System”.
- Next, scroll down and select “Developer Options”.
- Then select “ADB debugging” to turn the option to “ON”.
Second step is to now enable Unknown Sources settings
- Goto ‘Settings’
- Then ‘System’
- And lastly ‘Developer Options’
- Enable all 3 Settings
Click OK if you see any warnings
Press back and Go into ABOUT and select NETWORK to get your I.P address.
We are now finished with the configuration part.
