A pre-rooted version of the latest Amazon Fire TV update, version 184.108.40.206, has been released. All previous pre-rooted ROMs have been released by rbox, but since he has skipped the last two software updates due to the lack of new features, a new developer by the name of realbbb has taken it upon himself to root the latest Fire TV update and release it to the world. This pre-rooted ROM was released a week ago, but I haven’t written a post about it until now because I wanted to make sure it was safe for everyone to use since it’s from a new creator. I’m happy to say that I’ve been using it for about a week and have had no issues with it. You can download it from my ROM page and install it in the usual manor through ClockworkMod. To be on the safe side, you should be on pre-rooted ROM version 220.127.116.11 before installing this ROM, since I do not know if there will be issues if you skip ahead to this release without first installing the previous versions. As with all pre-rooted ROMs, you must first be rooted to install this release, so it will not help you root an unrootable Fire TV. The purpose of this release is to allow rooted Fire TVs to updated to the latest software version without loosing root.
