New 1st-gen Fire TVs available through Prime Now and refurbished units back in stock on Amazon

amazon-prime-now-fire-tv
For those of you still on the hunt for a 1st generation Fire TV, you should know that certified refurbished units have just come back in stock this morning on Amazon. Additionally, if you’re lucky enough to live in an area covered by Amazon’s Prime Now 2-hour delivery service, you should check the Prime Now app to see if 1st-gen Fire TV’s are available in your area. If they are in stock, you may even be able to get $20 off by using promo code TRYITNOW if it’s your first Prime Now order. I was able to order the Fire TV pictured above in the Los Angeles area through Prime Now. Apparently, Prime Now does not share inventory with Amazon.com, which is why they may have new Fire TV’s in stock when they’ve been out of stock on Amazon.com for months.

      From the Pandora logo…I’m tempted to say yes…

        Curious if the DSN on your received unit was in the following ranges:
        1.) DSN 709002014xxx
        2.) DSN 709003024xxx
        3.) DSN 709003034xxx
        4.) DSN 709003054xxx

        Where “XXX” can be in the 151-344 range. Units produced in the 14th week of production and earlier of 2014 were able to update incrementally to rootable software up until something changed on Amazon’s servers later in the year that that forced you to accept the latest software update which wasn’t rootable. Between the 33rd and 34th weeks of the 2014 production the Pandora and Bloomberg logos exchanged positions on the fire tv box sleeve. Units produced in the 15th week and after of 2014(151-344) are rootable per the ethernet cable disconnect method shown in the aftvnews rooting starters guide.

          So because your pic shows the pandora logo on the edge of the box I was tempted to believe it was manufactured some time before the 34th week when the Bloomberg logo changed positions and was featured on the edge of the box.

    Isn’t it crazy to buy the refurb for $94?

  3. rockster says:

    Why would anyone pay $94 for the 1st generation Fire Tv that too a refurbished one unless he/she care about Toslink only?
