Request I’m stuck in Kodi (on Amazon Fire TV)

I got an Amazon Fire TV from a friend with Kodi already installed. It had a wacky build I wasn’t into. So I attempted to give it a “Fresh Start”. That removed the addons, but that’s it. Same build as before. And I can’t get back to Amazon’s home screen. There is no way out that I can find. If I hit home on the remote it stays in Kodi. If I could just factory reset this thing I could install Kodi myself. Please help if you can. Thank you.

You could use ADB Link see if that works
to install a fresh version of Kodi over the existing one. Not sure if this can simply remove the existing though or if it can only re-install.

Here is how you can factory reset your firetv
You can try initiating Factory Reset by pressing the Right and Back buttons together for 10 seconds or more. Then, follow the on screen instructions.

Good luck.
