Hi guys so we have a new dilemma by the looks of this as of today i have been looking at trying to install es file explorer onto the fire tv stick from the amazon app store, Well!! seems they have put a stop to it from their app store but no delay guy i have another solution to this dilemma for you.
YES THIS IS SIDELOADING BUT WITHOUT A PC/LAPTOP 🙂
BEFORE WE GET STARTED PLEASE TURN OFF THIS OPTION
Settings > Applications > Collect App Usage Data
Now that’s disabled ( turned off ) we can now continue with this tutorial.
What You Will NEED.
1.) Another android device, box, phone,cell phone, mobile with play store access ( able to download from the play store )
- ) A firetv stick setup ready
3.) after you have started up your firetv stick goto Settings > System > About > Network > IP Address: ( write this down )
Your ip address may be different to mine that’s ok
4.) go back to Settings > System > Developer Options make sure both are set to On
Now goto your android device ( cell phone, mobile device ) it has to be on the same wifi as your fire tv stick.
Now on you android device ( cell phone, Mobile device ) goto play store and download a app called apps2fire search for it in the play store, Also download ES File Explorer from play store while your there as well 🙂
Now once done start apps2fire
now open the app, you will see menu options at the top fire tv apps and so on, touch the right and drag left until you see setup and select setup as pictured below
Input your ip address as we wrote down earlier, once you have input the ip address hit the save button to save the ip then slide the tabs across again from left to right you want local apps
Scroll down the list until you find ES File Explorer and select it.
You will see the below pic select install if you did everything right after around 30-60 seconds you should see a message saying install successful BOOOM!!!! your done,
Tt is now installed but you wont see it in the home menu to load it you will have to goto Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications
Select Manage Installed Applications
Scroll down until you see es file explorer select it then select launch application 🙂 BANG your running 🙂 ENJOY
I hope i covered everything correctly please if not comment what you think i missed it would be appreciated 🙂
