The whole problem is always finding the AFTV on the Twrp menu screen after returning to it after some time.
When I reboot and see the boot menu, the boot menu always has "boot normally" highlighted and a normal boot process happens. It appears to me there is a download in the system which gets scheduled for install and on boot the system gets put into recovery mode and the update doesn't go into effect.
So here is my question. How can I make this update go through? I have done all the network command statements into my router. I have ran commands through ADB. I can delete the download but it just keeps coming back.
How can I install the update through TWRP. I don't care if I lose the unlock bootloader and all that. This issue is no big deal for me but my wife . . . Oh gawd. Please help. Happy wife, happy life. She can't use the box if it is on the recovery menu.
Please help.Attachment 4524977Attachment 4524978

This is a safety process with TWRP if i understand correctly, it wont let the system update and wipe your root/TWRP out.
Why would you want to lose Root/TWRP ? these Amazon Fire devices are no longer rootable with current firmware.
To have one is getting more rare everyday.
I seen a Gen2 box for sale for £180 UK on ebay a few days ago.
You would be much better off keeping root/TWRP but disabling updates, using this guide:
Basically doing the following:
Your Fire TV must be rooted. Otherwise, use one of the other methods to block software updates.
Connect to your Fire TV via ADB
Run the command: adb shell
Run the command: su
(Be sure to select “Grant” if your Fire TV prompts you for superuser access.)
For Fire OS 5 (version 5.0.0 and up), run the command:
pm disable com.amazon.device.software.ota
This should sort out the issue of the FireTV idling then deciding to try and update, bringing you to the TWRP screen.
