Enable ADB Debugging:
Turn on “ADB debugging.” This allows you to connect your Firestick to a computer and use the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) for advanced tasks.
Enable Apps from Unknown Sources (Optional):
If you plan to sideload apps not available in the Amazon App Store, you can turn on “Apps from Unknown Sources.” Be cautious and only install apps from trusted sources.

Access Developer Options:
On the Device Usage Data screen, press the menu button (three horizontal lines) on your remote. This will open a hidden menu with the option “Manage Installed Applications.”
Open Developer Options:
Select “Manage Installed Applications.” This will take you to the Developer Options screen.
Using Developer Options:
With ADB Debugging enabled you can connect your Firestick to a computer and use ADB commands for various tasks, including installing apps and accessing the device’s file system.
Apps from Unknown Sources:
Enabling this option allows you to install apps from sources other than the Amazon App Store. Be cautious and only install apps from reputable sources to avoid security risks.
USB Debugging (Advanced):
If you have specific technical tasks, you can enable USB debugging. This is typically used for advanced development purposes and might not be necessary for regular users.
Please note that accessing Developer Options and making changes can have implications for the security and stability of your Firestick. Only make changes if you understand the implications and are comfortable with advanced settings.
