Help, Bricked Amazon Fire TV 2 4k!!!

Posted 23rd Feb 2019
Please help, my Amazon Fire TV 2 4k box was working fine....

I did a factory reset through the settings.

when it restarted I'm stuck on the Welcome to prime page, after logging in..

is there a way to manually reset or install the factory ROM....

any other solutions worth a shot?

I've tried forced restart and forced factory reset and still stuck in the same screen...

I'll post some pics shortly.


thank you in advance...


UPDATE ≥>>≥>>>≥>>>>>>

Good and bad news, left it for 1 day plugged in and I believe that Amazon Tech pushed an update to it.....

So the good is it's working now with the most recent update.... The bad is I can;t root it as this update does not allow it

Thanks to all that contributed ideas during my time of panic.

Is it out of warranty? They normally send you a replacement

Have you tried using ADB to get it into recovery?
