Fire TV & Fire TV Stick
Rooting Starter's Guide

Last updated: June 10, 2016

This page will help you determine if your 1st-gen Fire TV, 2nd-gen Fire TV, or Fire TV Stick is rootable. If it is rootable, this page will walk you through the steps for rooting your device, installing a custom recovery, and installing a pre-rooted ROM. If you only root the device, then you will be unable to update the device without losing root. That is why it is best to also install a custom recovery that allows you to install pre-rooted ROMs. The pre-rooted ROMs allow you to update your device to the latest software version without losing root.

First, which device are you rooting?
