How to clean up a Firestick or Android TV

When your Firestick or Android TV device is cluttered, it becomes slower and can even crash periodically. Lack of available memory is the top reason that your device can be slow, making it no longer a pleasure to use. In addition to the operating system itself, the ever-increasing accumulations of data garbage results in unnecessary usage of storage space. In this tutorial, we’ll explain how to clean up a Firestick and speed it up. If you want to know more about how to speed up your Firestick, check our tutorial.

Together, we’ll track down and remove unnecessary data using a free Clean Master software. Considering how valuable storage space can be on an Amazon Firestick and Android TV, this app can make a big difference. As an example, we’ll show you how much storage space we have saved with this app. Just follow our instructions below to clean up your device.

Before and after using Clean Master

After Speed Up

As you can see in our case, we saved almost 2GB of disk space after running Clean Master.

This large data that we removed is essentially junk, residual, and cache files that are just slowing down your device. We can safely delete them without affecting the rest of your data and, thanks to this, we will free up storage space.

Attention: Read before you continue

4K FIRESTICK…db tv assistant downloads and appears to work but it actually does nothing, when you have used it, go and check each app and the cache will still be there untouched.
still waiting for a solution for the 4k firestick, cleanmaster worked great for me on the older stick and 2nd gen box, but no good on the 4k.
so come on all you techies, us numpties are waiting for you to come up with something

Yes, same problem with 4K and Cube fire devices. Clean master and DB TV assistant do to work. I tried Clean Maid tool also. That does work to a small degree. Not nearly as good and as easy as the original Clean Master tool.
