I feel like aftv 2 isnt worth buying but I am thinking of switching to nvidia. If i can keep root, get the new os and still have prime Id rather stick with aftv.

Yes. I believe I have everything working quite nicely. Need to fine tune a few more things. I'm probably going to wait until the final version of OS 5 starts rolling out though.

Odd issue - Has anyone else lost root when they updated to 51.1.63? I upgraded, and went to check for busybox updates, and it said it couldn't verify root. I only update using the prerooted images, do in not sure what's going on. I have SuperSU 2.1.4 installed but I can't open it. Anyone recommend a different superuser app?

Had a similar issue a month ago but it was my doing. I installed the wrong busybox and it messed things up. Long story short, i reflashed rbox's firmware then tried busybox again and it was fine.
Fyi--supersu doesnt open but it works fine. Just be ready for the prompt to grant it access.

I was able to adb shell, too. That's what confused the heck out of me, since busybox went weird. I ended up installing CWM's superuser app. It's working great so far, and the second I installed superuser, I was able to install the latest busybox.

Is OS 5 stable enough for a pre-rooted version now? I'm not really having any issues with my current setup, but always excited for that big upgrade for some reason =)

@Scott, I had this issue on one of my units. I called Netflix CS one night and explained the issue. After supplying some info from the netflix app, they remote reset my device binding on my account. Once done, a simple reboot and everything was peachy.

The first beta is total crap. I haven't gotten the URL for the 2nd update yet, so I can't say. But I've heard it's not better. Regardless, I'm not going to release a prerooted until Amazon starts pushing the final version. Just to make sure nothing changes between the beta and that one.

@rbox would you mind sharing your ROM making process?

I extract the update, compare it to previous ones, add in root, modify the updater script, unpack the kernel, remove the bricking tool, repack it, remove any miscellaneous "bad" files, and then package it back into a zip.
