I just got a Pixi 7 from T-mobile on thursday, and there is a app on the Play Store called Kingo ROOT that I used to root my Pixi. So I used AGK Fire, and loaded it onto my Fire Stick, and ran it. I also had to put SuperUser on the Fire Stick. Now I have root, and disabled the Blacklist, and ota updates.

If this is known, and a guarded secret, please let me know

I was surprised that it worked

Yes I read that he used playstore version but when I try to get the playstore version I cant seem to find it, so went directly to the website of the app he used. I tried v3.1 and no success.

Tried all 3 versions of Kingo root. 2.5, 2.9 and 3.1. None have been successful in rooting 5.0.5.1. I can only assume the op is mistaken.?

Here is the exact APK I used. I also had to have the app "Rotate screen orientation " lock all apps in landscape mode, as kingo wants to open in portrait.

Below should be all you need...

You will need a mouse, or I just used "RemoteMouse" with my iPhone.

The first time I ran it, I thought it froze, and I held the center, Play-pause buttons to reboot the Fire Stick, and on reboot, I ran it again, and it worked. While it was rebooting, the progress bar started moving. SuperUser needs to be installed for it to work.
