    IMPORTANT FOR FIRESTICK USERS



    AMAZON MAY BE ATTEMPTING TO BLOCK ANY INSTALLS OF APPS THAT ARE NOT FROM THERE STORE OR APPS THAT MAY BE USED FOR TV ETC.
    THIS IS THE SAME FOR PAID SERVICES AND FREE APPS

    SUPPOSED TO BE FOR THE NEW 4K FIRESTICK BUT JUST TO MAKE SURE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW

    It is RUMORED that the Mighty Amazon are blocking downloads on the latest 4K version of the Firestick ! This includes any player, perfect player etc or smart ipeeeteeeveee and others as well as as k#di too

    So to protect your stick from the next Amazon update it is suggested

    You turn off the Data collection and app usage data in the settings under preferences and security . Would also recommend turning off auto updates .

    TO PROTECT OLDER STICK SEE BELOW, ALSO ADVISED TO FOLLOW ON 4K AS WELL

    Settings/Preferences/privacy settings

    Device Usage Data TURN OFF
    Collect App Usage Data TURN OFF

    Settings/Preferences/Data Monitoring TURN OFF

    Settings/My Fire TV/Developer Options

    ADB Debugging TURN OFF

    Settings/Applications/Appstore

    Automatic Updates TURN OFF

    STATEMENT FROM TWITTER

    “Strong rumour on twitter this is going to happen between 23 and 28th when amazon is pushing new update for 4k firesticks if it turns out it
    Just in case rumours are true.....

    currently using firestick 4k, no such issues, automatic update still on, and I have installed stbemu, zero issues.
