    My Kodi has been super slow and lagging. I decided after a week of wanting to watch the first episode of M*A*S*H and it stopping the first 3 seconds,that enough was enough. I just tried this, and it didn’t work. It’s extremely frustrating because we got our firestick about a month ago and it’s already giving us issues.

      unfortunately firesticks are one of the slowest kodi devices, make sure you use a good power supply that will help quite abit.
