Here’s how to install Filelinked onto your NVIDIA Shield.

Your online activity is being monitored and streaming paid for content for free can result in legal repercussions. You must use a VPN to keep you safe and anonymous on the internet. See our VPN guide for details and links to get started.

Check out our guide on Filelinked for more information on what
Filelinked is.

Here’s how to install Cinema HD onto your NVIDIA Shield.

  1. Install Downloader

    Open the Google Play store from your Apps list, search for ‘downloader’ and hit install.

  2. Enable install from unknown sources

    To allow Downloader to install Filelinked from outside of the Google App Store we need to allow it to install from unknown sources. This is a security feature so be careful when installing unknown apps and make sure you trust them.

    Go to Settings > Security and restrictions > Unknown sources.

    Shield Unknown Sources

    Click on Downloader to switch on this feature for the Downloader application.

  3. Download and install Filelinked


    Open the Downloader app from your apps list from the home screen and type the following URL into the URL box at the top:

    Once downloaded, hit ‘Install’ from the Downloader screen, then ‘Install’ again on the white android installer dialog screen.

    Once installed you can select ‘Done’ to return or ‘Open’ to open up Filelinked.

    If you hit back to Downloader you’ll be presented with an option to delete the installer file. We don’t need it anymore so go ahead and choose to delete the apk installer to free up some space.

  4. Activate FileLinked

    Here are codes you can enter on the first two screens, to activate the tool when starting up for the first time:

    First screen – 19867227 Second screen – 5252
    First screen – 92129404 Second screen – 8282

    If these do not work for you (as they may have changed) you can join FileLinked Advice, The Apk Tool Shed Facebook group and check Announcements to see the latest codes.

    Activate filelinked

  5. All done!


    Filelinked should now appear in the ‘Recent’ section of the Firestick home screen. If you don’t see it you can long-press the ‘Home’ button on your remote to access your apps section.

    Don’t forget to ensure you’re on a VPN when using streaming apps supplied by Filelinked.
