Select connect and then install apk. Browse to your downloaded version of Kodi (xbmc) and select it. wait for it to say complete.

If it fails to install or fails to connect, and you're sure that your IP is right (double check it changes) and ADB is enabled and unknown sources. Restart your computer and restart your fire stick and try again. Multiple users have reported failure until a reboot. If it still fails check to make sure you are not running any firewalls or anti virus software that is blocking it. Most users that get stuck at this stage it is because there IP address changed and they did not realize it.

New in ADB Fire 2.01 install firestarter from ADB Fire: Click Firestarter and install it.
