Fire TV Sticks running software version 188.8.131.52 or older were rootable with a utility called Kingo Root. As is expected, the new 184.108.40.206 software update has blocked the available rooting method. There is currently no way to root a Fire TV 1, Fire TV 2, or Fire TV Stick running the latest 220.127.116.11 software version. There is a chance a new rooting method for the Fire TV 1 will emerge, because it is vulnerable to the QuadRooter exploit, but nothing has been developed yet.
