Kodi Fire TV Guru Build

Now we’re going to look into how to install the Fire TV Guru Build for Kodi Krypton (V17). This build is part of the Ares Wizard, which has so many other builds which you are welcome to try out, we’ve covered quite a lot of these in our Kodi Builds section.

Before we start

PwrDown highly recommends you use a VPN when using Kodi. IPVanish is one of the only top tier VPNs and it’s tailored specifically for Kodi users. It works on almost all devices including the Amazon Fire Stick. As stated on their site, using IPVanish will:
  • Mask your IP Address & Hide your streaming habits.
  • Prevent your ISP from spying on you.
  • Make your online presence anonymous.
  • Allow access to blocked add-ons & content from other countries.

Fire TV Guru Overview

Getting into it, Fire TV Guru is a great build for content. It has categories for Maintenance, System, Movies, TV Shows, All in one, IVue Guide, Kids Corner, Sports Center, Music, Misc and Her Place. The Fire TV Guru build uses the Aeon Nox skin, which we are all very familiar with now.

Before we begin, please note that the Fire TV Guru build is not affiliated with the official Kodi repository. If you have questions or problems, please do not go to the Kodi support forums for help. Instead, get in touch with the Fire TV Guru team on Facebook here.

Below is a quick installation guide, however if any steps confuse you, more detailed instructions including images can be seen further below.
