I have been meaning to revamp my main rooting starters guide that walks you through the steps of rooting all the different software versions of the different Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models. Since I needed to update it anyway with the new rooting information for the Fire TV Edition televisions, I spent a couple of days redoing the whole thing. The new rooting guide is at AFTVnews.com/root and covers every known rooting method for each device’s software version.
Unlike the old guide, which was a single page that dynamically changed as you selected your model and software, the new one has separate pages for each section so anyone can link to different parts directly. This also allowed me to enable comments for each section, without it being one massive jumbled discussion that covered all devices and software versions.
This guide generally flows as follows: Select Device > Select Software Version > Select Rooting Method (if more than one is available) > View Rooting Guide > View Custom Recovery & ROM Guides. Just as before, I’ll continuously update the guide as new rooting methods are discovered. Enjoy.
