No.So there is no way to "free" a current FireTV Stick Lite?
Not even a hardware way?

Kamakiri from OP may work even on a patched stick if you are able to downgrade the preloader at boot0 partition to a vulnerable version...I've read something about blown eFuses wich prevent older software to boot. So a simple eMMC reflash wouldn't work if I'm correct?

Could I just short the same pins shown in mantis like you would to unlock a kanak fire tablet?Not even close to similar? lol
Take a look at your picture and compare it with the mantis one from here (see the small 'picture in picture' on the right side of the pic, i.e. the part with the MTK ARM chip):
It's the same layout.
Solution Hardware Unblock Fire TV Stick 4K (mantis)Sorry my english bad . Caution it is hardware solution . Need change emmc . I share isp pinout Fire TV Stick 4K (mantis) . Ver new amazon disable Brom mode for cpu . Only mtk preload port. Then testpoint pc no view port . Only solution is...forum.xda-developers.com
You would need to compare the left part of the mantis pic too, i.e. the part with the desoldered eMMC, can't see that part on your picture.
YesI was going to use a Linux live disc to try to do this but I don't have a TV close by that PC.
My other PC that is close to a TV does not have a disc drive. Can I boot Linux off of a USB and still do the steps?
Had a look into all fw bin's, TZ is the same until the newest 184.108.40.206 got an updated one...Yeah, probably just needs a more recent FireOS installed the TZ in kamakiri is from 220.127.116.11
adb shell su pm disable com.amazon.device.software.ota pm disable com.amazon.device.software.ota.override pm disable com.amazon.tv.forcedotaupdater.v2 exit exit

No, the Max isn't vulnerable to the preloader-exploit@k4y0z will a similar unlocking method be used for the Max once we receive the 18.104.22.168 update?
@SweenWolf thanks for your suggested fix . . . appreciate your work (and that of your good mate TDUK) LM and Debloat Tool are must-haves. This other way to block updates, is it somehow more permanent or safer than thru LM or Debloat Tool?Open TWRP, then mount /system, go to file explorer, go to navigate to priv-app and delete the folder
Usually you should be good to go now, but goto /data/app and check for same folder (it will have something as suffix) if its present then delete it, your ota should be blocked.
Could be that this is TZ related...I have the same problem since I flashed only TWRP alone and didn't installed anything on it just to be sure that my sheldon don't update ,Now any application who try to check DRM on stock firmware cause a bug and a reboot of the system. like netflix and disney+ or live tv with DRM..
