Alright So i rooted my fire tv stick v5.0.5, with kingroot 4.82, everything was working perfect, i blocked ota updates, and i froze the fireTV Home, and used firestarter. I rebooted the fire tv and it rebooted perfect, still had root, everything was great! I wanted to connect my playstation controller to it, but i couldnt access the fire tv settings because i froze the fire tv home and the built in settings is part of the fire tv home, i tried to install regular settings.apk, i tried several different ones but it would just fail installing, i thought my regular settings was interfering with it, so i backed it up and froze the fire tv settings just to try to install regular android settings afterward, and i rebooted the stick. Now my stick is stuck at the fire stick logo and wont boot, im sure its because i froze the settings, since it booted fine with root before i froze that, and that was the only change i did. Anyone got any ideas on how i can fix it?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Deershoot3r

I had the same issue with the FireTv Stick but another os.

I had a hardware rooted FireTv-Stick on Software: 54.1.1.0_user_110031420. That means FireOS 3, not FireOS 5.
Yesterday I let the stick push some file with ES-File-Explorer to my NAS. In this process the system restart (I think because to much power consumption and less powerfull usb port yesterday).
Now it does not start anymore. @deershoot3r
Perhaps we had a chance to get our sticks back by flashing a stock-rom from amazon.
Once I read something about fastboot and recovery possibilities.
At first you should load your stock-rom from here: http://www.aftvnews.com/software/

Perhaps we can connect a usb cable and start fastboot, see here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...81&postcount=6

fastboot kicks in as soon as you power off your unit, if you get to the amazon logo it is already too late however fastboot will not work for you anyway as your firestick boot loader is locked.
