************************************************** ***********
INCORRECT USE OF THESE FILES WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE
PLEASE ENSURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND

Here you can find stock firmware for both thor and apollo devices which are safestrap flashable.

Please note the following:
- These updates do NOT flash a new kernel or recovery - only a new /system image
- Before flashing ensure you know which stock base/kernel/safestrap you have installed and choose the appropriate version for that stock base/kernel.
- Do NOT use these images to downgrade or upgrade your base firmware.


I will be uploading them as and when I have time.

Thor Images:
- 13.3.1.0 <- Flashable on Safestrap 3.7.2
- 13.3.2.6 <- Flashable on Safestrap 3.7.5

*** THESE ONES DO NOT HAVE ROOT OR BLOCK UPDATES ***
- 13.4.5.2 <- Flashable on Safestrap v4.0.1

Apollo Images:
- 14.3.1.0 <- Flashable on Safestrap 3.7.2
- 14.3.2.6 <- Flashable on Safestrap 3.7.5

*** THESE ONES DO NOT HAVE ROOT OR BLOCK UPDATES ***

- 14.3.2.8 <- Flashable on Safestrap v3.7.5
- 14.4.5.2 <- Flashable on Safestrap v4.0.1

If you want to re-enable over the air updates then do the following:
- Skip this if you are using the 4.5.2 files - As stated above this does not apply so be careful.
- rename /system/etc/security/otacert.old to otacert.zip
- rename /system/app/com.amazon.dcp.old to com.amazon.dcp.apk

Excellent! I am able to revert back to this stock firmware after nearly bricking my device. Thank you!!

Since I"m heavily tied into the Amazon ecosystem and have other Kindle devices, installing HDX Nexus 2.01 didn't work for me.

However, thanks to @ggow, using the same upgrade guide, Iwas able to get my 3.1.0 to 3.2.6, allowing my fire hdx devices to finally be able to do screen sharing with my fire TVs! I did have to restore /data, enable xposed + hdxposed, re-install kindlefree + Google play store APKs & stucks wallpaper fix to be back at 100%...

Will you make a pre rooted 4.5.1 image for the HDX 7.0 Thor?
Can I flash this over a Stock 4.5.1 device?

  1. As of right now, it's impossible to root 4.5.1.
  2. No, you can't flash them over a newer version just like that. If you want to downgrade, check this thread.

I goofed - flashed the apollo zip over my already properly up(down)graded stock. Now of course I get a blank screen when trying to boot the stock - not that I do it that often of course. I can still get into safestrap and boot the nexus 2.01 rom with no issues so am okay for now. Would I need something like a rooted 14.3.2.6 to fix this?

aren't these roms very old? Is there any way to get the latest AMAZON STOCK apps AND keep root? I really like the FIRE OS (way more than stock Android) but I also want all apps etc.

Was screen sharing to Fire TV not available on 13.3.2.3.2? Furthermore, what exactly does 13.3.2.6 offer that's new/improved? Does anyone have the changelog for this?

OK, so the LATEST FIRE OS Version that is rootable is "13.3.2.6" for the THOR device, is that correct? Or is there any other way to root a newer OS Version?ยด

Oh, and how can I flash this update? My device is rooted, but I have a very old OS Version on my kindle hdx.
