I guess your TZ needs an update, i.e. you need to flash 220.127.116.11r2 first, then flash the latest one.
You can patch your stick so it doesn't check for updates, Patching instructions are here
I used TWRP to flash the patchv2 over 6.2.8_r3 and now the fire stick 4K is stuck on the fire tv logo on boot.You can patch your stick so it doesn't check for updates, Patching instructions are here
What you need from that post is Patch (18.104.22.168) v2.zip
The zip will make some changes on your rom, thats why its a TWRP flashable zip.
After flashing you can normally boot your stick and sign in to your amazon account.
After setting up your device if you want to revert the changes but keep the Amazon account. Just open TWRP and flash 22.214.171.124_r3 without wiping anything, this will revert any changes that my zip did on your system and you can still keep using this rom as it is.
Either patch your boot image using magisk, or flash my modified version of boot.img.
Not worth at all, a lot more bugs, size grows too.
It needs to things to burn the efuse:
can you add new prerooted image for https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...stock-images-6-2-8-1_r2.3983091/post-85725921 ?

Is something happened?
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.
