For a few weeks, I am receiving too many emails from people asking me to make a whole guide on how to install filelinked on Firestick. So, if you are one of them who asked for it or already searching for this article. Then you came to the right place as in this article we are going to learn everything about this amazing application.
This article is quite complicated so I would simply suggest to read it until the end and don’t miss anything. If you do so you may not be able to understand the steps or end up having some problems. This is is to try to read all steps carefully and also don’t forget to check the screenshots attached below each step.
Instead of just installing we are also going to learn how to use Filelinked as most people are familiar with it but yet some of you may not know about it. In this way reading this article will help you to learn how to use and also help you to sideload 3rd-party applications using this application.
Filelinked is a bulk downloader service that is used to convert long URLs into 8-digits code like 28375827. It is a famous app among Fire TV users as it used to download 3rd-party apps outside Amazon App Store. With the help of this service, a developer or any community member can share their app through code instead of a link.
However, there are many free applications that are not available on Amazon Store so downloading them is quite difficult. There is already an app available named Downloader that is used for sideloading. But the problem is typing the URL is quite tricky and it consumes a lot of our precious time.
Now with the help of Filelinked, anyone just needs to put a code on this app and they can download apps instantly. Other than this it offers bulk uploading that means with a single code a user can download multiple applications. This service is completely free to use and doesn’t contain any sort of annoying advertisements.
Despite being the best service, there are some drawbacks as well since you don’t know the actual URL that means you may get malware or virus along with. This is why it is recommended to always use the code that you get from trusted Developers or given by your friend to avoid getting hacked or end up damaging your device.
I have listed some of the best codes that are tested by me so make sure you should give it a try: Best Filelinked Codes for Firestick
Now once you understand how useful is to have Filelinked on Firestick you surely want to get this for yourself. If that’s the case then don’t worry as now we are going to learn the whole process to install it. But you should keep in mind that this app has been removed from the Amazon App Store a few months ago.
That means there is no way to install it from the Amazon App Store however there is still one method that we can use. This method is known as sideloading of the installation of 3rd-party apps. It means with this method we just download Filelinked from another website and install it on our FireTV device.
Although this feature is disabled by default as Amazon doesn’t want its users to install any app downloaded from the internet due to security issues. But you don’t need to worry about it as this is can be undone and then we will be able to download and install our favorite apps in just 2 minutes.
Ok, so to turn on the installation of 3rd-party apps you just need to follow these steps:
- Go to Setting on FireTV by hovering over the above Menu.
- After this, you just need to open My Fire TV.
- At this time scroll down and go to Developer Options.
- From here simply hover to Apps from Unknown Source and press the Select button to turn it On.
- When you select it a warning message appears there just ignore this and select Turn On.
We have successfully enabled the sideloading feature now we are ready to move further to this guide. Although if you still have some problem with these steps or want to learn about this feature. Then I have written a whole explanation guide and provides screenshots below each step that you should check:
Now another thing that we need to do is install the Downloader application on Firestick. As we already talked about earlier that Fielinked is removed from the App Store which means we first need to sideload it. But don’t worry this will take only a few minutes and once you are done with it you can remove the downloader app.
So, let’s follow these steps to get downloader and install Filelinked on FireTV Stick:
From Home Screen on FireTV hover to the above menu and then select Search or Magnifying Glass icon.
At this time you will see a keyboard now using this type Downloader and select the first Suggestion from below.
Now you will see various apps related to that term just open the first result having Orange Background (check screenshot).
From the next screen, you just need to click on the Download (You Own It) button and this app will download automatically.
Downloading will take only a few seconds and once completes just select Open to launch it.
Launching Downloader for the first time will require permission as it is used to Download apps. So, when you see that notification asking permission to access Media, Files & Photos just click on the Allow.
After this you will notice the Home Screen of Downloader and then simply hover to the Small Box appears there and press Select button on remote to open keyboard there.
Once you see the keyboard now just type https://firesticklab.com/filelinked.apk (or type firesticklab.com/fileinked.com) and then click on the Go button.
At this time you will notice the app is trying to connect to the server and once done the Downloading will be started automatically.
This will only take a few seconds to download this app and once completes an installation window will appear there and from here click on the Install button.
During the installation process don’t click any button and when you see App is Installed now click on the Done button as we will open it later.
At this time you will see the Downloader app with Status window so now simply click on the Delete button.
After this, you will be asked for confirmation just select the Delete button again to remove this app.
That’s it we have now removed the backup file that is necessary to save internal storage on our device. Although the official app is still installed on your device and we will launch it in the how to use guide.
After following the above guide we learn the process to install Filelinked on Firestick using the Downloader application. But just in case you don’t want to use it and go with the ES File Explorer method. Then here is the quick guide that will help you with it but keep in mind that sideloading through ES File Explorer requires a premium version.
It is because they recently removed this option and added it to the premium features this is why many people prefer Downloader over this app. In case you already have a premium app installed on your device then you should simply read the steps that are provided in this section.
Let’s check these quick steps to sideload Fielinked using ES File Explorer:
- Make sure to enable Unknown Source by following this article:
- Once it is enabled now launch ES File Explorer and from Home Screen select Downloader.
- After going there from the bottom menu click on the + sign (New).
- It will open a dialogue box there now type https://firesticklab.com/filelinked.apk and click Download Now.
- This will connect to the server and then you will see Download Status on your screen.
- Just wait until the app is downloaded and then click on the Open File button.
- After this select the Install to open the installation window and then again click the Install button from below.
- The installation will take a few seconds and once completes just click Done or Open (whatever you want).
That’s it now we have sideloaded this app using ES File Explorer as well. This method is quite easy and best for those who are using the premium app. Although for free users Downloader is still the best option now they can use Filelinked instead of these two applications.

All you need to do is copy one of the Filelinked code from any website (including ours) and then paste it there. At this time it will check if the code is correct or not. When the code is incorrect you will see an error however some codes might contain a password so you will be asked after pressing the Continue button.
After completing every step on the next screen you will see everything that is available in that code like Paid TV Apps, Live TV Apps, Sports Channels, Some Useful apps, and many more.
