yeah it will just update it, it will not wipe anything.
hi guys, i have a 4k fire tv with os 184.108.40.206 and basically i would like to be able to remote control the device with anydesk or similar.
what's your idea? i think that actually there isn't "no-root" method to give accessibility to this type of software, correct?
If so, unlocking and rooting the device would solve my problem?
thanks for support
Thanks! Meanwhile I found a way that's perfect for me, rootless, as follows :
If the OS is already stock, then yes
The stick should remain unlocked, even with a broken efuse, as long as the microloader is in place. Only BR access gets lost (i.e. unbricking via BR).
Updating TZ will not patch your stick, I have one stick (only one) and that has the latest TZ, running on 220.127.116.11I can confirm that updating only the tz image will blow an efuse without flashing the stock rom. The brom exploit won't even work on my already unlocked 4K anymore. I still have one more that works do be careful when flashing any type of image files and roms above 18.104.22.168.
That's what I exactly did while unlocked since I bought two total and one to mess up and testUpdating TZ will not patch your stick, I have one stick (only one) and that has the latest TZ, running on 22.214.171.124
If you somehow flashed stock ROM which blew the fuse earlier on.
You can still unlock your stick if your efuse isn't blown and TZ doesn't do that.
I flashed 126.96.36.199 right from 188.8.131.52 (or 184.108.40.206)
Even that setup was patched, efuse related stuff was removed and i patched boot also (which is responsible for blowing efuse on startup, not saying its the only one, but it runs that)
So i never had a efuse writer stuff on my system.
[EDIT] I also want to add
As mentioned in the OP if you have updated the TZ and then flash any stock rom with efuse in it, it will definitely blow the efuse on boot up.
It'll overwrite debloating. I posted the prime video update so you don't have to upgrade versions.
Great, thanks man. I will try the Prime Video Update. But If i want to Update Firmware, how can i do this without lost all settings? GreetsIt'll overwrite debloating. I posted the prime video update so you don't have to upgrade versions.
Prime Video APK: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/prime-video-fire-tv-apk.4315163/
It also removes some files from your system so that your efuse doesn't blow up, which is responsible for disabling the exploit and you can no longer unlock your stick after that.
You can make it stock, but the thing is you will not be able to Root you stick again becuase all the new stick comes patched from the factory.An odd request but how can I get back to completely stock? I did a factory reset but TWRP kicks in automatically on restart and does something to prevent it (recovery) being overwritten. It's developed some random issues so I'm sending it back to amazon so it would be nice to get it back to completely stock but I can't seem to find any stock firmware images.
Hi guys, apologies for the noob question as I'm v new to android, i've followed the guide and successfully unlocked my firestick 4k, just wondering exactly how I go about flashing this image.
If someone could point me in the direction of an idiots guide that would be great.
*** enable adb debugging in Fire TV settings ***
*** connect stick to pc via usb to connect the stick to adb server ***
*** check if stick is seen by adb server***
sudo adb devices
you should see something like:
List of devices attached:
**reboot to recovery:
adb reboot recovery
**push rom zip and magisk:
adb push ./Magisk-v20.0.zip /sdcard/
adb push ./mantis-220.127.116.11-rooted_r1.zip /sdcard/
**go to shell from adb:
twrp install /sdcard/mantis-18.104.22.168-rooted_r1.zip
twrp install /sdcard/Magisk-v20.0.zip
**wipe cache (maybe not needed but helps)
twrp wipe cache
** install Magisk Manager (run command from PC in the folder where you put MagiskManager-v7.3.5.apk)**
adb install ./MagiskManager-v7.3.5.apk
* ** open it and check magisk is installed!! ***
** disable update
(ATTENTION! after executing "su" command go to the fire tv screen and wait for magisk manager to accept the root and click to accept!!)
** if su worked prompt changed from
**disable these 2 apps
pm disable com.amazon.device.software.ota
pm disable com.amazon.device.software.ota.override
**clear a pending update and delete the last searched thing from settings. **
pm clear com.amazon.device.software.ota
