Disable Update on Fire TV

Disable Update Package (Root Required) – Recommended Method

This method disables the application on the Fire TV which checks for updates. This is the recommended method. Be aware that this method does not survive a factory reset and must be re-applied after the Fire TV completes its initial setup.

Connect to your Fire TV via ADB

At the command line type: adb shell and hit enter
Then type: su and hit enter
(If this is the first time you’ve ever requested super user (su) from ADB, you will need to select “Grant” on a popup which will appear on your Fire TV. If the popup times out, you may safely repeat this step. Alternately, you can go into the settings of the SuperSU and set the app to grant su by default. In which case you will not need/get a popup on the Fire TV.)

Then type: pm disable com.amazon.dcp and hit enter
You should see the message: “Package com.amazon.dcp new state: disabled”
(If you instead see the word “Killed”, it means you have not gained super user (su) and need to go back and repeat step 3.)

Then type: exit and hit enter

Lastly, type: exit and hit enter again


I found this on a reputed website. See if it helps.

Wrong forum.
This forum is for the Grayscale Kindles (Amazon OS) not the Color Kindles (Android).

Correct forum.
I just did not know we supported those devices in this forum.
