An updated version of the pre-rooted 126.96.36.199_user_514006420 ROM has just been released by rbox. For those unaware, the first version released yesterday caused issues with the new Netflix app that prevented any video from playing. The updated version, which can be downloaded from AFTVnews.com/roms, should resolve the issue. Your Fire TV may hang on a black screen once rebooting after installing this new version. If this happens, rbox advises you to simply power the Fire TV off then back on by pulling the power cord.
Be aware that this updated version of the pre-rooted 188.8.131.52_user_514006420 has not been fully tested. Those using a DNS bypass services to view Netflix content may still have issues. Be sure to let us know your experience with this update and Netflix in the comments to help rbox diagnose any remaining issues. I’ll be sure to update this post with any new information or issues that arise.
Good news. Several people, including those using DNS bypass services, are reporting success using Netflix with this latest pre-rooted ROM. All indication is that the issue has been resolved.
