The Fire TV has just gone on sale for $84 at Amazon, RadioShack, Best Buy, and Staples. This sale is expected to last until January 31st. If you’re in the market for a rootable Fire TV, you’re better off buying from a retailer like Best Buy since most of the Fire TVs shipped out by Amazon lately have been unrootable. Buying from a retailer with a physical store in your area comes with the added advantage of easy returns if the unit you receive is not rootable. Remember, you can enter the serial number printed on the outside of the box into my Serial Number Decoder to get a pretty good guess at whether the Fire TV is rootable.
