Hey there,

just got my Fire TV today (German Edition) and I would like to know if I have anything to do before I set it up...I want to root it later when it is possible.

So should I avoid any updates or something like that?

I just made a firetv for a friend yesterday but I'm in the US so not sure if its the same but this is what i did.
I started the firetv and got the update. it auto updated first to an old rootable firmware. and said there is a new update.
I installed towelroot and rooted it and disabled the updates.
then follow the instructions here to get the latest firmware that is rootable. worked perfectly for me.

The German version comes with 51.1.3.0 which is currently not rootable. So the best you can do is block updates (there are tons of threads here on how to do it with DNS and whatnot) and hope a bug is found in the version you currently have.
