Update 02/03/2015

This guide I posted is well out of date, there are other methods to follow now days.
Please use as it is up to date and current.


Thanks to for the OTA link and rbox for pointing me in the right direction I've successfully manually upgraded to the latest firmware, downgraded back to and am now upgrading back to

This is the process I followed. I take it for granted that you rooted, have SU and Busybox free installed.

Don't blame me if you **** your device up and you have a brick.

So lets get to it:

1. Download which ever firmware you wish to restore to:
Code: Update 1
2. Rename which ever one you wish to restore to

3. adb shell

4. su

5. chmod 777 cache

6. cd cache

7. chmod 777 recovery

8. cd recovery

9. echo --update_package=/cache/ > command

10. ctrl + c

11. adb push /cache

--- Go make coffee or take a ****....The pushing of 466MB takes forever over wireless.---

An alternative is to copy to a USB Flash Drive, use StickMount to mount on the FireTV then copy it with the following command:

cp /sdcard/usbStorage/sda1/ /cache

12. adb reboot recovery

Now it should reboot and start installing whatever update you downloaded and called

If you get the out of space error:

If you have any bin files, delete them.

1. adb shell

2. su

3. rm /cache/*.bin

Nice work and great news! No reason not to update to the latest version since we can downgrade too.

Thanks. Should we delete the file after the update to save on the space or is it automatically deleted?

It automatically gets deleted. It's late this side so I'm going to bed.

Will do some testing tomorrow before I give the go ahead and tell everyone it's all working!

Getting It Done

This method gets it done. I've tried others, but these instructions - and the fact that the OP has kindly prepared the "command" file for us - make it an easy ride. Just put the update zip in the same folder as your ADB setup, open your command window in that folder and adb will find it.
