If you are a firestick user, you know the incredible features of the TV firestick. TV fire sticks facilitate the users by allowing them Netflix streaming and different games on their TV screen. But I know just like me, you want more. And surprisingly, you can get more from your firestick. I was on cloud nine when I knew that I can enjoy the phenomenal features by using my TV firestick. I am enclosing my must-see experience in this article.

Firestick jailbreak

If you jailbreak your firestick, it means you can enjoy the third-party software and applications on your device. These third-party applications are not available on the amazon play store and the Google play store. But by jailbreak your firestick, you can access these enjoyments. 

The Jailbreak firestick process allows you to enjoy the 3X better streaming experience by installing the best streaming apps, free movies, and TV shows. Jailbreaking a firestick is also known as the “side-loading apps.” These apps include the Kedo, MX player, Stramio, Aptoide, and many more.

The procedure of jailbreak firestick process is as follow

You do not need any other application or android to jailbreak the firestick. All you can do on your TV firestick. 

  • The first step includes turning on the ABD debugging and apps from the unknown resources. For this; go to the settings of your home screen of firestick, then go to the “My fire TV” option. Here you will find the “developer” option. Click on it and here you will directly reach the “ABD debugging and APPs from the unknown resources” option. Turn them on.
  • The next step is to download the “Downloader” from the home screen search icon.
  • Once you can download the downloader, the next step is to install the “FileLinked”. The FileLinked applications assist you to download third-party applications for free.

Speed up your firestick to enhance the streaming

Buffering is the prevalent cause of firestick; most of the users complain about it. If you are facing the same, then it may be because of the overheating of the device or over bloating of the device. You can amplify your streaming experiences by stopping backstage device operations.

  • Your firestick algorithm operates on the videos and sound auto-play loop. If you turn off these functions, it will minimize the load of the CPU.
  • The other feature for comforting your device is turning off the notification of apps. The application’s notification is an unnecessary hit on your CPUs storage and algorithm. If you stop your unnecessary app notification, you can boost up your streaming.
  • You can also magnify your streaming by disabling your unused services, for instance, prime photos. If you are not interested in these services, you can disable them.

Increase your firestick storage

The significant issue which the users complain about is the firestick storage. Typical firestick comes up with only 8GB storage. This compact storage becomes a hurdle in the users’ streaming. As the firestick is not installed with the USB or SD-cards bot, you cannot plug in the USBs straightforward.

But everything has a solution. You can use the OTG cables with your firestick. You can straight insert the USB into the OGT cable bot. That eventually increases your firestick storage capacity. You can transfer your files from the firestick to the USB. That boosts up your streaming by minimizing the firestick load. You can also use different tools to clean up your device storage regularly. This daily removal of unnecessary files allows your device to accommodate the necessary items.

Cast to firestick from IPhones and Ipads

This unknown feature of the firestick is to cast your iPhones and ipads screen straightforward on your TV screen in just a few minutes. You can cast to firestick by following the accessible steps. Go to the menu; you will see the four options. Select the mirroring option. This option means casting, and it shows the devices you want to pair. Then go for your device and start sharing the screen within no time.

You also have to make the desired settings on your android. Search for the cast option and enable it. After that, search for your firestick and get your iPhone’s screen on your TV screens.

Screen magnifier

If you are someone like me whose eyesight is not good enough, you will love this feature. This supports you to zoom in on your screen while watching movies or playing games. You can zoom in on your screen to read the tiny captions on your home screen or while streaming online.

Go for the settings, choose the accessibility and select the screen magnifier. These easy steps will magnify your Firestick screen.

Parental control

The firestick is also equipped with the parental control feature. This feature allows you to censor the adultery content with ease. Open the settings, go for the preferences, and choose parental control. 

Conclusion

You can not only enjoy the amazon or Google play store applications; but also enjoy the third-party applications by using the firestick jailbreak process.
