I'm guessing those that have done it are coming from the FireTV original.
Who has successfully rooted the FireTV Stick?
What Firmware was device successfully rooted with?
Can Android OS be changed to a different ROM?
I have 2 that I got on the $19 promotion and don't want to plug them in if there is a chance I can root first.
Nobody. The firetv stick cannot be rooted currently on any firmware. Standard fire tv's could be rooted as of 1 or two firmware revisions ago.
Edit - looks like there might be a potential hardware root referenced here:
They had something similar posted for the original fire tv but noone has been able to reproduce it to my knowledge.
