I unlocked the bootloader, I did a wipe data and now the firestick is stuck on the firetv black screen, cant access the menu, cant connect through adb with the computer connected via usb.

I can access TWRP with otg cable and mouse, but I dont have any rom to flash on device, so I cant reflash it, I dont have access to adb to push it either.

If I connect a usb hub to the otg, and connect the mouse and a usb stick at the same time, can I access the usb stick memory to flash the rom zip file?

Help

Update:
Problem solved I did the unlock bootloader process again as Pretoriano80 advised and it worked, I got access again to TWRP, used adb to push the rom and flashed the rom again.

Thank you.

Yes, if you connect a mouse + usb stick (fat32) you will be able to flash a stock rom. In TWRP you will have to switch from internal memory to the OTG stick.

I already tried.

When connecting directly to pc, no otg cable, I cant use adb, looks like after I wiped data the device lost the adb.
I tried adb shell it says no devices/emulators
I tried adb devices, none listed
So I cant connect through adb, I cant access recovery nor I can push the flashable rom.

The only way I can access is with otg cable + mouse.

That leaves me with only one option, use the hub to connect mouse + stick to the otg cable and flash through otg usb in TWRP.

TWRP's ADB should work, but probably you can't boot into TWRP without OTG. The solution is to do the unlock procedure again so after the last step it should boot to TWRP automatically.
If that fails, then you can buy an USB hub.

Ok tried it

No response from device

After ./bootrom-step.sh it says waiting for bootrom, I do the short connect the device but the computer doesnt recognize it, keeps saying waiting for bootrom no matter what I do.

So I think theusb hub is the only resource now.

    Thank you for the answer thats good news.

    So any usb hub should work right, i will have to buy one.
    If TWRP works, then you can push a stock firmware from PC to the FireTV Stick with ADB. Just make sure that your stick is connected to your pc with the original USB cable (not OTG).

    Great! No problem, it happened to me once and has been the only that worked for me (without the need of an usb hub, of course), so i was pretty sure that it would work for you too.
