2. Now, you have to turn on ADB Debugging and Apps from Unknown Source. By default, “Apps from Unknown Source” is off and you just need to turn it on. Also, press Yes when popup came.

3. Now go back and head over to App Store. You have to download an app called “Downloader” by AFTVnews. Search for the app and install it on your firestick.
