At the same time, it was a different version of towelroot that rooted my 2 day old phone weeks ago and before I knew it, I was getting nags that when I was connected to wifi again, the phone was going to update OS! I did I boatload of searching on the internet and discovered that the Fire TV uses system app Device Services Platform (DSP) to do OTA updates. I just took a gamble and used ES File Explorer to uninstall that system app. ES File Explorer gave me an error saying uninstall failed (on phone and Kindle HDX 8.9). but on reboot nag was gone and I continue to have access to Gapps, playstore, Chrome, everything. I did use xposed installer to load Gapps. Amazon Instant video still works, it's all the phone it should be and is fast as heck and pretty, lol.
I have no idea why there are so many sources for towelroot and why seemingly same versions really are NOT. I just know that Google is your friend and shotgun approach works and there is a version that will your phone. I am not a geek and did this

What are the files I need to delete to stop OTA updates?
Also to downgrade 3.5 via sideload adb version has to be higher then 1.27 took me forever to figure that out.
I have downgraded and done a factory reset, but it is already trying to upgrade. Thanks for your help
