Here are prerooted stock images for use with my recovery. Note that these contain addon.d support, so any 3rd party things you install to /system need an addon.d script to be retained between flashes.

I STRONGLY recommend that you completely wipe if you had Kingroot installed. This can be accomplished in TWRP by going to Wipe and selecting Format Data. This will blow away everything on it, including whatever garbage Kingroot left behind.

And as always, make sure you DISABLE UPDATES.

Awesome work.
As @Antieco asked above, I'd really like a debloated rom too to speed the stick up and I'd like to reinstall Firestarted 3.2.3 as it was perfect for my needs using 5.0.5 rom. Are both of the tasks possible?

Again thanks a lot to rbox fot his amazing work.
puppinoo.

I highly doubt "debloating" would accomplish anything, but yes it's possible.

lost somewhere.... Help
Rbox will there be a chance of a prerooted image for a lower fireware please? i know you have one for v5.2.1.0 but i want to continue using the mousetoggle app & also the old firestarter app too, i believe i wont be able to use these after using the prerooted image for 5.2.1.0? Or will there be a mod i can use to enable adb & block the fire tv from calling the adb just for the Amazon apps/favorites quicktoggle when you press or hold the home button? I know it probably sounds like alot but im sure im not the only one asking or thinking about this question?

(By the way i left the same message over at AFTVNews but thought id get a better answer in your thread)
Thanks in advance

Yeah, I sometimes read AFTVNews, but I rarely respond. As for old versions, yeah, that's not a problem. I can generate any version. What do you want?

IMHO, not scientifically proven disabling some Amazon packages and especially their home launcher with your rbox module helps a lot with the limited resources available on the AFTVS1. The list of packages I have disabled is in this post which also includes a very good reason to switch to a proper pre-rooted ROM.

@rbox is there any word on whether rbox Xposed module works on 5.2.1.1? Or if you have an idea which DB holds the info on the default launcher in FireOS? I just want to hit home and have Fire starter/stopper launch instead.

No clue.

I've successfully installed TWRP and 5.0.5, then upgraded to 5.2.1.1 just to make sure it would work. Everything went great. I'm going to try installing Xposed and your module tomorrow.

If you're taking ROM requests, would it be possible to have a rooted 54.1.2.3_user_123067020? From what I can tell by reading AFTVnews, it's the last version of Fire OS that's not lollipop. Your module worked perfectly on Fire OS 3, so I'd like to use that if I could. With the limited way I use this stick I don't need much more than Kodi and Xposed.


Thanks for all you do, rbox. We're really lucky to have you.
