How To Speed Up Amazon Fire TV Stick

The latest 4k Amazon TV Stick is so fast that you won’t have to deal with any lags at first. But when you install a few apps, that speed gets worse. This slowdown usually happens when you install apps that stay running in the background. One of the other main reasons why you may suffer from speed issues is low memory. Temporary files that accumulate can also be a problem for a smooth running stick.

What can you do in this case? We have a trick to clean up Firestick with just one click and it is called the DB TV Assistant app.

What is DB TV Assistant (DangBei Assistant)

DangBei Assistant (DB TV Assistant) is a professional TV management software. It cleans up your Firestick and makes it faster and smoother. This app is quite similar to the Clean Master app, but it definitely works better for Firestick. Read on below to find out more!

Speed Up Amazon Fire TV Stick Step-by-Step Tutorial

Let’s check the internal space of Firestick and compare it to the final results after using the DB TV Assistant app to speed up Amazon Fire TV Stick.

1. Turn on your Firestick.
2. Using your remote, go and click on Settings on the main toolbar.
3. Move forward until you find Applications and tap on it.

4. Go ahead and search for Manage Installed Applications (at the end of the listed options).

5. At the right of the screen, you will find details about your Firestick’s internal space. In this case, the Firestick has only 1.84 GB free from 5.34 GB available.

Attention: Read before you continue

Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users online activities. If found streaming or browsing content on your Fire TV Stick, mobile or PC, you could get into serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. We strongly recommend you to get a good VPN and hide your identity so that your online experience doesn’t take a bad turn.

We use IPVanish which is the fastest and most secure VPN in the industry. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon Fire TV Stick. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don’t like their service, you can always ask for a refund. IPVanish also runs a limited time offer where you can save 73% on your VPN and they allow you to use one account on unlimited devices. This is a flash sale that can expire at any time.

Here are the reasons why you must use a VPN all the time.

It’s about time to install this Cleaner app to help us cleaning and speeding up our Amazon Fire TV Stick. 

Install the DB TV Assistant on Fire TV Stick

1. Check the guide on how to install FileLinked on your Firestick and install it right away if you have not already. Don’t forget to enable apps from unknown sources!

2. Launch FileLinked and enter the WebSafetyTips store code – 11111111 (eight ones).

continue on WST store

3. Scroll down through different categories and under the Utilities category you will find the DB TV Assistant file. Click on it!

4. Go to Install.

5. Click on Open to open DB Assistant app immediately.

6. The DB TV Assistant app is quite simple to use. To show you how to speed up your Fire TV Stick, we will only use the ‘Start’ button located in the middle of the screen. But, feel free to explore the app’s features as well. For now, simply go and click on Start.

Start DB TV Assistant

7. The cleaning process could take up to a few minutes, so be patient!

8. Let’s repeat the four steps where we checked the internal space of the Firestick.
Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Installed Applications > Internal Space

As shown in the photo below, the test was successfully completed. Even though the difference with the first photo isn’t considerable (that’s because we already used the DB TV Assistant app before we started the tutorial, so we could be sure that it really works.)

Note: You can free up more space depending on how much your Firestick needs it.
So, give the DB TV Assistant a chance and speed up your Fire TV Stick with just one button.

In addition we recommend you use the IPVanish VPN if you don’t want to experience the continuous buffering and throttling issues with your Amazon Fire TV Stick. 

Let us know in the comments below if you have any speed issue with your Firestick device!

VPN WILL SLOW YOUR CONNECTIONS DRASTICALLY. THEY WORK MUCH BETTER WHEN USING A DEVICE LIKE NVIDIA SHIELD. REMEMBER THE FIRESTICK IS ONLY A FIFTY DOLLARS DEVICE. NUFF SAID.

I take all the steps to speed up my FireCube which is faster then the stick and I still have issues with buffering. I do the following…
1. Run Fix and Refresh for Fire
2. Run DB Assistant
3. Manage program and clear the
Cache files plus force close
everything other then my
VPN.
4. Shutdown & Restart my Fire
Cube. Results….more buffering
and my Speed is in the 50’s and
60’s.
When I was using a stick the buffering was even worse.
I think I need a faster CPU.

I saw a tutorial that changed the storage/other percentages by adding a 64KB chit in the 4k firestick. That was really great. Later I found the stick running out of space. Problem – When I added programs to the stick, it reverted back to where I didn’t have any storage. Has anyone had this problem and what can you do about it.?

What happens is that the programs are added directly to the Fire-stick and not to the chip. You need to have a file manager installed such as Total Commander which will allow you to identify the internal storage (fire-stick) and external storage (chip). The problem with this is that you cannot download directly to the chip. You first have to download to the stick and transfer the download to the chip with the Total Commander. this will free up the space once again on your fire – stick for further downloads.

Do we need to click on the trash can on Filelinked’s front page after using the DB TV Assistant app like we had to do after using Clean Master? Also, I have noticed that my installed apps’ cache is not reduced after using DB TV Assistant like it was with Clean Master.

When I used Clean Master on my old firestick and then checked my individual installed applications, the cache on the apps went to zero. When I use DB TV on my 4k firestick, the internal space did increase, however, the cache on the individual apps was not affected.

As I understand it, you should click the Filelinked’s front page trash icon after installing apps from within Filelinked and before you exit. This will delete the installation packages you downloaded and don’t need anymore, i.e. the APKs. If you have downloaded apps from within Filelinked and have never clicked the trash icon you can probably free up a lot of storage memory. Just for grins and giggles, go to your Apps Settings page and see how much free memory you have. Open the Filelinked app. Move up and click the Trash icon. Go back to the Apps Settings page… Read more »

Why not just use the setting that empties the trash every time you close, (or maybe it’s open),the filelinked app? That’s How We Do 😉

I have found that the vpn has slowed my WiFi speed from over 200 down to 40 mg.
Since I only stream content I have stopped using the IP Vanish.

That worked great on my FireTV Cube Version 2, and my android TV box! Much better than Clean Master, which did not function properly on either device. Thank you very much!

Been using this program since I got the Firestick, and find it to be a wonderful program, but I first fo through the Manage Program list and stop everything running in the background, and clear the cache.. and then run Dangbei Assistant. I do this at least twice a day! Help keep us running smooth!

It’s ben a month or so now that IP Vanish will no longer allow me to see local content as it did before. I have checked all of the settings and I am not seeing some of the options that were there before an update. Anyone having this problem?
Would love to get some feedback on this.

Same here. I have to disconnect IPVanish to watch any tv shows, movies or live tv. Most of the time it’s disconnected. ?

Turn your IP vanish off, then restart the fire stick or cube whatever you may have and then you should be able to get your local channels again

My understanding is Clean Master doesn’t work on the 4K sticks. I tried several versions before I switched. Do use an early version of CM still on my 2nd gen., and a Droid Box.
