How to Install and Use Debloat Toolbox on Firestick & Fire TV (2022)

Debloat Toolbox on Firestick

The following tutorial will show you How to Install and use Debloat Toolbox on Firestick, Fire TV Cube, and Fire TV Television.

This tool has been around for a long time but recently the developer updated it so one application will work for both Fire OS 6 and 7.  Prior to this update, there were separate apps for each operating system.

Unfortunately, Amazon Fire TV devices come with applications that we can’t uninstall.  Or, we receive a new Amazon update that includes a new application that we don’t want!

Debloat Toolbox to the rescue!

Debloat Toolbox will allow you to disable Amazon Bloatware and speed up your Firestick device for maximum performance.

Special thanks to TechDoctorUK and Sween Wolf for developing this app. Be sure to subscribe to TDUK’s YouTube channel for more fabulous tech videos!

The Debloat Toolbox will allow you to disable various apps and settings within your Firestick device that are unwanted or unneeded.

This is a fabulous way to remove device clutter and get the most out of this streaming device.

The Amazon Firestick is the most popular streaming device due to its low price point and “jailbreaking” abilities.

Because Debloat Toolbox only works for Firestick OS 6 and 7, we must first determine what version we have within the device settings.

We also need to make sure ADB debugging is turned on within the developer options.

Follow the instructions below that will show you how to determine which Operating System your Firestick runs.

1. From the home screen of your device hover over settings and select My Fire TV.

A few important notes before we get started:

  • Unfortunately, you can not block updates with the Firestick Debloat Toolbox if the latest Amazon Update has already been applied to your device. This update does not allow you to disable future updates and cannot be undone.
  • Users can disable system apps within the Debloat Toolbox, however, we suggest staying away from this option.
  • If for any reason you wish to enable any services you disabled, you can easily do so with the Debloat Toolbox.

NOTE: Disabling services on your Firestick device is based on personal preference.

It is important to go through each option available and determine which ones are unneeded on your device.

  1. You guys are my Goto for Firestick customization, really appreciate your knowledge and efforts. Has anyone researched what you can and can’t move or what is even allowed to USB storage from the bloatware? I moved everything I could outside Amazon code. I still get storage full. App is 3 Gig available, but system (dev1 if memory serves) is full. I’d rather move, if possible, rather than disable.

    1. TROYPOINT - Ryan

      Hi Mary, like we explain in this guide you can disable whatever apps/services you don’t use. We disabled Prime Video because we don’t use that service and it’s taking up valuable space on our device.

  2. Thanks for this! It disappoints me that the Fire TV stick, as cool as it is, has such a tiny built-in storage chip and so little RAM considering all the stuff that Android thinks it needs to work plus all the stuff that Amazon thinks I want to use. I’m glad that I can now turn off the unwanted stuff and at least stop it from running in the background. Using the ‘force stop’ function doesn’t seem to last long and it gets tedious to do that every day, so I hope this debloater tool works to keep these things I’ve selected from running.

    Too bad that I can’t also uninstall the things I’ve selected as well to free up storage space. I have a USB Flashdrive plugged in and have set it up to store some things. It’s a tedious process to store stuff on it with having to type all the long codes in, but it does work. Would putting this debloater tool on the flashdrive keep it from working? I’ve noticed that some thing will run on a flashdrive and some won’t.

    1. “It’s a tedious process to store stuff on it with having to type all the long codes in”
      Have you tried ADB from your PC? SCRCPY is great for this. The great part is you can:
      1. ADB connect ip:port (in cmd from adb path)
      2. adb shell “pm list packages -f”
      3. copy above to notepad.
      4. you already know adb shell “df -k” (to get your mount for ext memory
      5. use notepad to cut and paste for move command
      6. adb shell “pm move-packages com.idontneed.onfirestick.app mount-point-here”
      makes moving to memory card a piece of cake.
      7. don’t forget to adb disconnect if have a connect on firestick in adb remote
      and adb disconnect when done on pc. The hardest part of all this after setup is getting that connection because the firestick or pc has it captured. I’ve tried having two ports but not working for me.

  3. Installed Debloat Toolbox & would like to clean up unneeded items but do not have a clue as to which ones I should disable. I understand about Amazon items. What others can go?

    1. TROYPOINT - Ryan

      Hi Edward, this all depends on the apps/services you don’t use. For instance, as shown in our guide we don’t use Prime Video so we disabled items related to Prime Video.

  4. Love your site and all the FireOS tips and tricks, please keep up the great work! This new debloat tool is what we all need to “take back” our devices and gain control of what is installed on the things that we buy for our home. Hopefully we can make Alexa “shut up” and quit eves-dropping in our home life.
