Firesticks are no 1 target

Frying firesticks? That kind of sounds like fun. Sorry

in the news today uk police staged a mass crackdown on firestick streamers one arrest was made now thats a massive crackdown :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Saw a similar article but didnt mention arrests…or arrest lol

I am hopeful a vpn would protect the users.

i would think vpn would be fine but i had to laugh about the article its the keystone cops all. over again . and if thats the result of a mass crackdown i wont lose any sleep over it

The best work around is not buying a Firestick/cube/box. :grin:

I have one left and I’m waiting for Amazon to give me a reason to replace it.

I would love to root my stick n phone triedgot lost when I was instructed to hold the button down for a certain amount of minutes and then a safe mode screen came up and I just got so lost and but I would love to learn how to root

You want to root a stick, follow the instructions I posted above. :point_up_2: but as I also mentioned, be prepared to brick it. Shorting out those micro capacitors is not easy. For all the effort involved it really isn’t worth it, unless, of course, you want to do it just to say you did.

Thanks I fav the link and will use it . When’s Mass cracked down happens lol thanks again I am going to get a ONN system this weekend and start the major downloads and settings and add-ons and all that good stuff.

Have disliked firesticks for quite a while now, for all the obvious reasons, but fear not there’s always the devices like the T95Z. Which Troy recently reviewed, that can probably be had for less than the cost of a miserable firestick.

I’ve been streaming for about the same amount of time, but you have to realize some of these dinosaurs…er dudes, go back to the days of monthly-updated codes and modified satellite Charlie boxes. I even remember the “silver bullet” you’d screw into the cable port, though I was too young and poor to purchase one.

And without work-arounds, side-loading with developer access, and other shenanigans, would this hobby really be as interesting?
