After getting back to work on TWRP custom recovery fixes for the Fire TV 1, it didn’t take long for rbox to figure out the issues causing some first generation Fire TVs to loop/blink when trying to access recovery. A new final version of TWRP custom recovery for the Fire TV 1 has been released, labeled
If you’re not having any issues with TWRP on your Fire TV 1, you don’t need to install this new version. When you install the new 188.8.131.52 pre-rooted ROM, which has also just been released, the ROM will automatically update TWRP to this new version. The only people who need to explicitly install this new standalone TWRP version are the ones who could not get into TWRP custom recovery on the Fire TV 1. If you’ve been holding back updating a rooted Fire OS 3 1st-gen Fire TV because of the TWRP issues, now would be a good time to finally update Clockworkmod to TWRP and install a Fire OS 5 pre-rooted ROM.
As always, if you have the means, donate to rbox to thank him for continuing to release updates for the Fire TV1.
