    Post [APP][MOD] ES File Explorer with Systemless Root Support

    Thanks for the links. I have been searching for an alternative to the 3.2.5.5 which I think was the best option out there for a long time. Hadn't found anything that has all the same features that the old es-file explorer had before it was ruined.

    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] Fire TV Stick 4K (mantis)

    That's good to know that there weren't the amazon errors when letting it update all the way and then performing the exploit. I just went through the whole process back to stock and waiting to see what happens when it updates. For some reason though, it did not update during the registration and...

    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] Fire TV Stick 4K (mantis)

    No, no issues with running the exploit again after the black screen. My intentions were to flash the stock boot image and hope for a refresh, but there's more to it it seems. On an semi-related note, I finally found a use for the old USB A to USB A cable from the old Firetv2 days. Works well...

    Post [UNLOCK][ROOT][TWRP][UNBRICK] Fire TV Stick 4K (mantis)

    Any luck with this? I tried with the prerooted ROM, but didn't have any luck. After flashing the boot partition with boot.IMG in the hacked bootloader and rebooting, the firestick hung at the black firetv screen. Needing some help. Thanks.

    Thanks. I've tried that already and gone through the whole wiping experience to a freshly wiped system and data. After installation, I let it update to the latest firetv revision but still having the prime video error. I don't have the issue on my other 4K Stick that was rooted previously.

    Good morning. I installed on my second 4K stick last night and found that I was successful, but was not able to play amazon prime videos. Every time I would attempt to do so I would get a "LICENSE_ERROR" error code. I installed both the prerooted ROM and magisk already. I did notice that my...

    Great work! Very excited to see this and also enthused to see the attention by rbox. Install went well for me, only took a few tries to catch the points. With the successful install of magisk, was going to ask if anybody had installed busybox yet. Thanks again to all involved!

    Post [ROM][OFFICIAL][PAYTON][NIGHTLIES]Lineage OS 17.1

    I can't speak for everyone that has dealt with the issue, but it occurred both through sideloading and through the updater. My issues started when I tried to update from the Sep. 19th update. Ever since I tried to update from that version, I have had issues with the reboot bug. But there is a...

    Well, all was not lost. After a mad dash for information and reinstallation of drivers, I came across a post on reddit that was helpful. I was able to flash the gpt partition and that corrected the issue of no bootable a/b slot. I booted to twrp and changed the slot to b from a and the x4 booted...

    Well, you were right. Side loaded and still had the same issue. Rebooted and continued to reboot quite about 9 or 10 times. Like I said, I'm on the Sept 19 build and can't update. Does anybody know of any issues with magisk lately? Stuck...

    Post [ROM][OFFICIAL][PAYTON][NIGHTLIES]Lineage OS 17.1

    If that is the case, not sure the two are related. I'm on the 9-19 build. Can I sideload the image to force the install instead of installing online through the ota?

    Post [ROM][OFFICIAL][PAYTON][NIGHTLIES]Lineage OS 17.1

    Trouble with ota update. Anybody had issues with the ota updates lately? Have not been able to update for the last few releases. Would talk forever to install close to 2/hours or so. After rebooting, would bootloop about 19 or 15 times until it timed out I guess and go to the working slot.

    Hi guys. I didn't see a whole lot of talk about it, but for this update(coming from one of the releases early march), please confirm my understanding. We should use the sideload feature in twrp and after this update the lineage updater should work well? Thanks again.

    Hi I was on the original 5.0.1 but have been using the 12.1 lineageos release, which is flashable through twrp after fastbooting it. Do I have to go back to amazon software to unlock the bootloader or can I proceed as it is with the custom rom (but locked bootloader)? Thanks.
