My FireTV Stick completely wiped and restored itself to factory settings. Any idea?

My FireTV Stick often gets completely wiped and gets restored itself to factory settings without any intervention on its own. After that I had to setup the Firestick as a new one by entering Amazon account details etc. and installing all the apps again. It has happened few times n last 2 months and I got no idea why this is happening.

Yes, I do have additional apps installed on Firestick using the APK files from web. That may be a cause??? I am not sure :(

It appears that this sudden complete wipeout to factory setting has something to do with Kodi being installed on the Firestick. Avoid installing Kodi and you will be fine.
