  1. Hi I have a rooted 1gen.fire tv and I change the background,my question is if I update to the pre-rooted rom 5.2.1.1 I will loose the background?

  2. Mark says:

    I think this Fire TV Stick 2 will have a quad core 1.4GHZ CPU and 2GB if RAM and a decent dedicated GPU, because they tested it with a dedicated Bluetooth game pad and games are a very good revenue stream, so I also think it’ll have 16GB storage too. And it will keep the same price point, it may possibly offer the 30hz 4K too.
