Guys I just wanted to let you know that for the Fire Tv, there is a issue with the refresh rate not switching; it seems to be kernel bug. Hopefully, our version is not affected by this; but I have not tested this firmware at all.

More info can be found here.

Thanks to @AFTVnews.com I have also got the Amazon link instead of it being mirrored on my Google Drive.

Here is the full firmware's deobfuscated url:
https://amzdigital-a.akamaihd.net/ob..._573210520.bin

Code:
  File: update-kindle-full_sloane-36.5.7.3_user_573210520.bin
CRC-32: 5fedbf23
   MD4: acc4a8242381ecc59aac5c070f481b14

Update

If anybody wants to try out this firmware, firstly make a TWRP backup (so that you can restore to incase you experience issues with 24p playback). I'd highly suggest you wait for rbox to update it as it is less risky; you may loose root if you haven't allowed SuperSU to have atleast allowed su before! Ensure that your current rooted applications have been allowed. SuperSU will work but you will need an additional Xposed module for it to open.

If you are impatient and like to observe the changes with this firmware then go ahead, I take no responsibility as this is all risky; though I am sure the prerooted image will come out soon...


Make sure you have used Adb shell with the su command atleast once! This to tell SuperSU to allow permission of adb shell under root permissions after we've updated the firmware.

Before you start, install Xposed Framework and the HoloThemer 3.0 (version 3.0, no other version; it can bootloop the box! Do NOT update this module either!) module, also enable the module.

Download any optional flashable zips for you (Opengapps)

Download the SuperSU flashable zip

Download the full firmware (update-kindle-full_sloane-36.5.7.3_user_573210520.bin) (not the partial one!) and verify the file integrity by seeing if your file has a matching md5 to the one I have published then change the file extension from .bin to .zip

Download the Fire TV 2 recovery script https://forum.xda-developers.com/fir...overy-t3309780

Download Xposed Framework flashable zip (if you have lost it or something)

Place all of these zips on the sdcard of the device

Reboot into TWRP

Flash the firmware image

Do not wipe cache or system, unless you want to deal with a headache...

Flash the SuperSU root package

Flash Xposed framework

Flash Gapps (if needed)

reboot

Once rebooted run

Code:
adb shell
su
sh /sdcard/firetv2_recovery_v6.zip
Run any debloating scripts if necessary

(SuperSU may not show it's interface, an xposed module is needed as Amazon is intentionally blocking it through a corrupted holo them)

To fix SuperSU not opening, install the HoloThemer module (version 3.0 ONLY; and DO NOT UPDATE THIS MODULE! Versions above 3.0 bootloop the device for some reason)

Reboot

Through HoloThemer, select the SuperSU app and select the theme to be Material Light or Material Dark

Profit!

Just updated my FTV2. It was very easy to carry out, just had to wait a bit for the FTV2 to complete the update.
Now have Alexa.
Thank you RBox

I can not download any of the files. Had links been removed? Firetv 1 and FireStick links are working.

Also new updates with the same software version but different build version with the same changelog. The build version is 573210720 for all other devices but the Fire TV 2.

I expect these updates to devices to fix the 24p problems we have been suffering

Can 5.0.4_r2 be re-upped or does anyone know of a legit mirror? I would like to remove root and I have TWRP. Thank you.
