Extract all 3 zip files to the same directory.
You must decide if you want to use unbrick.img or unbrick+ramdisk.img. Using unbrick.img, it should take about 30 minutes. Using unbrick+ramdisk.img it could take up to 2 hours. You can only use unbrick.img if you have an sdcard. If you have an sdcard, place ramdisk-recovery.cpio.lzma in the root directory of it.
Run unbrick_firetv2.bat for Windows or unbrick_firetv2.sh for Linux or OSX.
First, it will ask you which file you want to use, unbrick.img or unbrick+ramdisk.img. You must type the name of the image you want to use.
Make sure the USB cable is connected and turn on the FireTV 2.
Then it will start reading from the FireTV. Then it will prompt you with a warning:
No target file specified. Is this a partition image? If this is not, DO NOT CONTINUE, otherwise press 'y' to continue. Write partition image? <y|n>
It should start writing. Eventually it will finish. If you put the ramdisk on the sdcard, make sure it is plugged in and power cycle the Fire TV. It should skip the bootmenu and take you straight to recovery. If for some reason the USB keyboard doesn't work, unplug and replug it. It should start working.
