I’ve had Kodi since I got my FireStick on Black Friday of 2016. I’ve been trying to customize it as much as possible but I know it’s Lipitor’s without root. Added the HA launcher and love it. Want to debloat the amazon crap to make it faster. Anyway to do this?

Unfortunately, there is no currently known method to remove/disable bloatware on devices that are running firmware 5.2.6.1 or higher.

Due to the new firmware you should only buy a current Fire TV device if you mainly use Amazon Prime!

That was exactly the goal Amazon was pursuing

^ Bullshit. My debloated Firestick 2 broke. Still can do everything I could do before, with its replacement 5.26.1 (boot to new launcher etc). Only thing missing is voice search in Leanback.

Would you be so kind as to share? There is A LOT of information to sift through and AFTVNews is actually still indicating that the Fire TV 3 can't be rooted, which we know isn't necessarily true now (given firmware level).

Thank you!
