It’s not the unified debloat tool. The UPDATE BLOCKER just uninstalls the automatic software that is downloaded. That’s it. It’s a TDUK tool like the debloat tool but simpler. Search for it on TDUK web site.
My dumb Firestick question of the day is: what version of FireOS will allow Launcher Manager to turn off the stock Amazon launcher?
I just tried everything I could think of with the FireOS 6. I thought for sure it would work, and nothing. What is the purpose of blocking updates if it doesn’t still allow us to customize the stick the way we used to?
That’s why I say it doesn’t work. Amazon made certain base component modules “Protected”, and short of rooting the stick you can no longer modify those components code. However, while we can no longer update we can still turn off some components to limit data adding.
@Jayhawks659 said he was fixing his buddy’s stick and all it took was for him to download Launcher Manager 1.1.6 (1.0.4 is in Troy’s Toolbox). How did they block the “protected” parts so that it will still work?
Fire OS 7 version 220.127.116.11 with build number PS7273/2622 (rolling out to Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Stick 4K Max, 3rd-gen Fire TV Stick, and 2nd-gen Fire TV Cube.) Fire OS 6 version 18.104.22.168 with build number PS6287/3768 (rolling out to Fire TV Stick 4K, 3rd-gen Fire TV, and 1st-gen Fire TV Cube.)
I guess that answers my question. Jayhawk said the one he was working on was 22.214.171.124, which is right before the 126.96.36.199 that destroyed everything. I guess having these versions is like a rare Honus Wagner baseball card. So silly.
