Flashed [6.2.6.8_r1] by rbox -> booted fine. Flashed this custom kernel and it is not booting, stuck at first fire tv logo, on black screen. I flash again the ROM and it is fine.
Are the problems with the ROM by rbox?

No promises, but i will look into it and eventually i will send you a test build.
Btw, have you flashed the kernel?

I was on magisk patched stock because I use stickmount for USB drives but flashed your kernel and magisk 20.1 after just for test right now and stick boots fine. So in general looks like it works

Great, than something is not right on rbox's rom.
Personally i use my own zip to flash OTAs and i tested the kernel for quite some time.
Hmm,i've tried Stickmount months ago but i wasn't satisfied, that's why i started to work on the OTG module.
Best would be to find a way to make the OTG storage to show in Settings, so people could mount/unmount from there.
