Android TV 11 for Amazon Fire TV Stick with LineageOS


The world of Android modding is truly vast and also involves devices that rely on Android TV, Google’s software platform for devices that interface with smart TVs. In some cases it even extends to Amazon’s Fire TV Sticks.

Amazon’s Fire TV Sticks rely on Fire OS as a software platform but are compatible, with some effort, with Android TV. In the last few hours a senior member of the XDA forum has proposed a method to unlock the bootloader of the Fire TV Stick 3 and the Fire TV Stick Lite. This normally this is not possiblebecause Amazon does not allow you to officially unlock the bootloader of its sticks, but it is possible to do so officially by downgrading to version 7.2.7.3 of Fire OS and sending command line with Linux. At this address you will find all the details technicians.

Unlocking the bootloader then opens the way to installing one custom recoverywhich then allows you to install a custom ROM or third party mods. Therefore, the compatibility of the LineageOS based on Android TV 11 for the Fire Stick TV series falls short. This is the LineageOS 18.1which seems to work in optimal way on compatible Amazon sticks.

Installing Android TV on Fire Stick is definitely a big plus if you want to use i Google services and officially access the app on the Play Store. At this address you will find all the details for the installation of LineageOS 18.1.
