To enable ADB debugging or install apps from outside the official Amazon Appstore, you’ll have to unhide your Amazon Fire TV’s “Developer Options” menu.
To reveal the Developer Options menu, first, select the gear icon on your Fire TV’s home screen. This will open the settings menu.
In settings, choose “My Fire TV.”
In the “My Fire TV” menu, select “About”
On the “About” page, select the first item (which is your Fire TV device’s name) seven times. When you do this, you’ll see a countdown at the bottom telling you when the menu will be unlocked.
- Once the countdown message says “No Need, You Are Already a Developer,” then your Developer Options menu is unlocked.
- Head back one screen to the “My Fire TV” page and you’ll see the newly unhidden “Developer Options” menu.
You can open this menu to then enable features like ADB debugging and the ability to install applications from outside the official Amazon Appstore.
Now your Developer Options menu is unlocked.
