Found 27th Apr 2015
Just got amazon prime 30 days offer and looking to buy the fire stick, i'm hoping to install kodi on it, but wondering if i will be able to install acestream and sopcast as sometimes i find HD quality streams on acestream.
Also can i watch live TV on the fire stick?

You can't watch live TV, but obviously can with addons for kodi. There are the usual catch ups (BBC, ITV, 4, 5, etc), Amazon Instant Video, Netflix....countless apps, all of which you can take a look at now on the Amazon App store.

Side loading is perfectly simple by adb.

However, the remote is a problem. You really do need the modded settings to allow you to use a Bluetooth mouse - apps like Show Box are useless without one - with the remote, you can move down, but not horizontally therefore can only watch a movie if it appears on the first column. Alternatively you can get the controller (around 35 quid, not worth it IMO unless you're extreme on Android gaming).

Sideloading is even easier with the AGK fire app available from amazon app store, also an advantage is all installed apps, including side loaded apps appear on a desktop style page making access to them much simpler, than going through the settings/apps/ manage installed apps route.
Kodi is also available from the Amazon app store.

I think you will struggle to find reliable acestreams and Sopcast.
I've tried both on numerous addons and things list OK but most don't load or if they do there no where near like HD

Wukong remote app works as a remote in conjunction with fire remote, on the screen, top right hand corner four dots in a box press on that, from the drop down list, press mouse module and it acts pretty much like an air mouse, not an ideal solution but it works. Best of all its free

I installed acestream and sopcast separately on my android box and can watch good quality HD streams.
