Step 6: Now type the source URL as http://ftg.nosleephosting.xyz/notmewizard/FTG/ and click OK. Many users reported that they are unable to install FTG Wizard.

Step 7: Type “FTG” in the name field and then click OK.

Step 12: Now you will see another popup with several options. You can select/deselect as per your preference. Then click “Continue”

Step 15: Now select “Fresh Install” if you don’t want to keep your old add-ons/data, otherwise click “Standard Install”. I prefer Fresh install.

If you get a popup with options “Reload Profile” and “Force Close”, click “Force Close” and then relaunch the Kodi app. After opening the Fire TV Guru build for the very first time, give it some time (15 minutes should be enough) before start using it.
Fire TV Guru Not Working
Some users have been reporting that Fire TV Guru is not working on their Fire TV Stick. I would recommend that you Turn Off your Fire Stick, unplug from the power source, turn off the router and turn On all of these back after 5 minutes. Now Fire TV Guru build should be working fine.
If in any case, Fire TV Guru isn’t working after following the instructions above, it is best to reinstall the build instead of finding the exact problem. It will save a lot of time.

If you are seeing No Streams available, then there are good chances that your ISP is blocking you from streaming content with FTG. You can always get a VPN to avoid such issues.
