How it works
1. your Fire TV Must have root and busy box installed plus adb network turned on for this to work
2. Download the firmware from Rootjunkysdl.com; example bueller-ota-51.1.1.0_user_511069920-signed.bin
3. then rename firmware to update.zip
4. place update.zip in folder with batch files
5. click on 2 amazon fire tv firmware installer.bat
6. follow script to install
7. if you are having trouble watch my youtube video

Nice!
Can you tell me how long it takes to copy file over wifi?

I had an idea to do this with the files manually copied to the usb drive. I wanted the instructions to be where the user copies the script file to a thumb drive along with one or all of the bueller.xxxxx.bin files. the script does a list of bin files in current director and and lists them with numbers and waits for user to enter a number to select the file of choice (this allows for downgrading also.) it then performs actions. chmod, echo then cp and reboot in the script file. this should be rather easy for someone who has scripting skills with input & variables in android.

update.zip Did Not Convert
I copied this firmware update, bueller-ota-51.1.1.0_user_511069920-signed.bin, to the Fire TV Firmware Restore Tool and renamed it to update.zip. I did not get the popup regarding changing the extension. And the update.zip file remains with a .bin extension as seen below. Any ideas on why it did not convert?

Just wanted to chime in and say thanks, I had tried to do the manual upgrade one my 2nd fire tv and it was not working for some reason, this did the trick and was easy to use. Ended up getting the firmware updated and the remote upgrade for both my fire TV's so thanks for this!

Will this work?
I set Windows 7 to show extensions for known file types. I then changed the name to update.zip and it converted to a compressed zip file. Below is what is showing in the Fire TV Firmware Restore Tool.

And below is the content of the update.zip folder.

Can I proceed with the firmware upgrade? I am somewhat concerned because your video shows the update.zip file type to be to be "ZIP File" where as my file type is "Compressed (zipped) Folder (.zip)" .
