Unboxing this device shows the same accessories as older models with an included All-New Alexa Voice Remote.

Mine came with dedicated app buttons for Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu.

Like previous models before it, setting up your new Firestick Max is a breeze, especially if you already own another version.

Users are prompted with the option to Restore from another device and install current apps, settings, and parental controls.

After setup is complete, you will notice the device home screen with the updated interface that Amazon rolled out earlier this year.

Best of all, users can sideload applications via the Downloader App which allows you to Jailbreak the Firestick Max.

How to Jailbreak Firestick/Fire TV

Unlike other variations of the Firestick, the Firestick Max features 2 GB of RAM, making it 40% faster than older models.

The Fire TV Stick Lite is equipped with 1 GB of RAM while the Firestick 4k features 1.5 GB of RAM.

Navigation of the device seems snappier than other Firestick models and apps load quicker upon launch.

    Every time I’ve tried to order, including using your link I get “Currently Unavailable” . This happened even on advance orders. As a Canadian account I’ve never been able to actually order Firesticks on line, ever. I rely on my American friends.

  1. My old 4K was done in by a lightning strike. I have had it one day. Easy set up and you can tell the interface responds faster.

  2. Definitely a step in the right direction. Huge improvement of ease of use making it very practical to setup. I apologize in advance by going slightly off topic here. The Onn Android box and streaming device has taken a huge price drop. Box as low as $20 and device $15. Also Wally World has advertised TIVO 4K low as $22. I found out all this information last night on this current event. Again I apologize for going into another topic. I want to inform our fellow members on the latest. Cheers to all.

  3. Got mine last night and set it up this morning. Was surprised to see it recognizing the Flash drive without having to do anything except formating it which was a click of the remote. Side loads went to the usb automatically. Spent most of the day with my old 4k resetting it and doing things the hard way. Only problem is i wish i had ordered 2 of them!

  4. Thank you for all your help showing all the things we can learn from your experience in kodi and now fire stick programming them to enjoy! Thank you again!

  5. I received the new Firestick 4K Max today and and so far I really like it. It does load apps faster than the previous version. Setup is as simple as it gets and we’ll worth buying.
