Not possible, don't hold your breathe that an exploit gets found. Best is to get the second gen stick, that one is rooted and unlocked within no time...

Hello, how can I know which stick Gen I have please?
I just bought it from Amazon, it comes with Alexa, but it's not the 4k one I think.

Thanks

The currently selled non4k stick(s) is the second gen one. Quick check, you see the name in ADB shell, 'bueller' is the old first gen, 'tank' the 2gen and 'mantis' the 4k one.

Thank you for your answer, if I have this tank generation, what should I do to root it? Is it as easy as that?

Again, thanks

Depends on you, you can look into this thread, it's all descriped in there. You have to be carefull, the resistor that needs to grounded out to the shield is really small and gets easily damaged. A few guys bricked the stick...
