    I get the sameproblem, did you manage to find a working version

      Ethan · June 19, 2019 at 1:58 am

      Although there isn’t any permanent fix for this error until the new versions show up. But you can try installing the older version if it matches with your hardware and software efficiently.

    Same issue – app on home page but won’t open.

  • Simob · July 1, 2019 at 6:32 pm

    I get the same problem with a blue screen for a second then back to the Home screen. To install an older version, do you have a different URL to type in?

      Ethan · July 3, 2019 at 2:51 am

      I have mentioned the different Version URL in the post only.
      You can directly download or can go with manual installation process in which you have to download and then you have to place the file inside firestick memory.
