Rooted my 8.9 on version 14.3.1. In order to get prime music I was considering un-rooting, letting it update to 14.3.2.4 and re-rooting. Has anyone done this?

Any risk or downside? Is there another way to get prime music?

I have an 8.9 HDX. I unrooted mine and upgraded to get Prime music and then used towel root to re-root and installed xposed. Had no issues and then I also unrooted and installed the latest update to get better wifi. However there is a rumor going around that a their is an exploit to unlock the bootloader that does not work on the latest update. Since I do not care about a unlocked bootloader I upgraded to latest firmware and re-rooted with towel root and reinstalled xposed and updated su binaries. I have had no issues and all google and amazon services work without a problem. Also, I had to leave mine connected to wifi after the firmware upgrade to get the prime music installed. I believe on mine it installed around 4 hours later.

Thanks. I am in a similar position to you I don't have much interest in custom roms. Can you outline the steps you used to Un-root? Did you Uninstall exposed first and then use super su to clean up and un root? I want to make sure I get the steps correct.

All I did was root, install gapps, xposed, and play store.

I don't know if this is the correct way but this is what I did. I just ran the system update and installed the latest firmware. After the install the HDX is unrooted. I then ran towel root. After the reboot I ran xposed and reinstalled the framework and modules and then rebooted. After that I ran supersu and updated the binaries. Everything worked for me after that. I did not have to uninstall anything. Hope this helps.

I did not reroot until after I had verified Prime Music was installed. You can either open the music store and will look different and have Prime Music on it or go to manage applications and look at the icon. If the Amazon music icon is green it is the old version if it is orange it is the new version with Prime Music.

All worked well for me. Thanks for taking the time to respond to my post. All the best to you.

I am thinking of unrooting, what about SafeStrap? Does anything need to be done first for that?

Why do you want to unroot/upgrade when you could, with a bit of work, install a different ROM which would offer all the goodness of generic Android (think google play store access) along with all prime benefits.

If you still want to 'upgrade' fire OS no need to unroot. Upgrade will handle that nicely. I would dump Safestrap. Just asking for trouble with that in the mix.

It is possible to brick with safestrap, so go back to oem rom, and uninstall it before doing anything or you could be looking for trouble.
