Is Debloat necessary to put on the firestick? Not sure what it does.
Highly recommended, yes.
what does it do. do i click on everything?
Also do you know anything about this amazon blocker for firestick.
What it does is stop all the Amazon crap, like the ads or movie/series suggestions, and updating. It does help to reduce buffering by reducing the load on RAM and system resources. Unfortunately I can’t give you a simple answer as to what to check or not to check as that depends on your needs, likes, or dislikes. techdoctoruk covers this in his tutorials to help you.
The Amazon blocker does the same thing as @Miki describes. It will help you Stick operate more efficiently.
thanks. i will watch video to determine what to do.
Hi. I downloaded the Debloat and de-activated everything. So basically it does not update anymore. Not sure I understand. Wouldn’t I want updates to the firestick?
You can always reverse the process to install updates. I do this on the first day of every month so I won’t forget, and yes often the updates contain valuable security updates, but equally, as often, the updates are just more eye candy than anything.
Another reason other then “eye candy” updates that just bog down the firestick, rumour has it that at some point Amazon may release a update that essentially blocks 3rd party apps and add-ons. This would make the firestick basically useless for using apps like Kodi or or other streaming services not related to Amazon or any product or service Amazon sells or makes a buck off. I have update blocker on and just keep a eye out on here to see if such a update has actually been released before doing a update.
Very true. Amazon has leaked that they will be doing cpu e-fuse events to make it so there is no way of rolling back updates. So if that’s the case then what’s next?
What’s next is most people on here and other tech sites will not be buying FS!
Trouble is Amazon isn’t just on the firestick. If they do this all at once then we’ll all end up going with Google, but unfortunately they aren’t much better.
Will this work for Firestick 4K?
Will what work? If you’re referring to the debloat tool or the update blocker or the adb commands then yes.
