it is not for Gen 1 or 2, halooooo. why even comes tutorials for 4k, when gen 1 or 2 asked??? Why? Gen 1 or 2 are the first Stick generations. 4k is the new one! Not the old! 4k new, gen 1 and 2 old. 4k new-gen 1 and 2 are old
What I would like to find out with your help, before I root the next device or somebody, would be to find out what is the newest hardware-rootable stock firmware from amazon, where I should update, before making a hardware-root.
Because at the moment there is no pre-Rooted rom's like, like builded from rbox or realbbb for the Fire-TV-Box-1. Also there is no unlocked-bootloader or custom recovery.
I used the fire tv guide and rooted my Fire stick just fine. I have kodi on it as we speak. You dont plug it into the computer. You plug it into the tv and get the IP address and install everything via wifi
