Amazon Fire TV Custom ROMs

Note:

This page has not been updated since before Fire OS 5 was released. I’m planning to overhaul this page in the near future with information on the newer updates.

Custom ROMs are like new operating systems for the Fire TV. For instructions, see my guide on how to install a custom ROM.

Pre-Rooted Stock Software

These custom ROMs are identical to the stock software released by Amazon, only they have already been rooted. This allows you to update to the latest software version released by Amazon without losing root access.
