Well, there is no root for the cube, likely not to be any major android updates ever. Amazon usually don't do major updates. Even on the devices that have root, it takes a developer to covert a compatible rom to make work (usually with flaws). There has never been a updated custom rom that isn't based on Amazons fireOS base. To my knowledge only one fire-TV has ever even had a custom rom installed that that is the firestick2 and it was based on android 5.1 (Lineage 12.1). What apps are you specifically looking to run? Through the threads you can find some modified or look for older versions of the apps that are still compatible on apkmirror.

I am curious, the cube2 runs android 9 which should be compatible with every app still.. Why do you believe the app's are not compatible? Do you know how to sideload apps on to the cube and how to access all apps?

Sorry reading through it appears you have a firetv2 not a cube... i suspect...
Amazon Fire TV Devices
Amazon Fire TV Cube (2nd Generation): Fire OS 188.8.131.52 (17951962500) (Android 9.0)
Amazon Fire TV Cube (1st Generation): Fire OS 184.108.40.206 (3590964612) (Android 7.1.2)
Amazon Fire TV (3rd Generation): Fire OS 220.127.116.11 (3590963076) (Android 7.1.2)
Amazon Fire TV (2nd Generation): Fire OS 18.104.22.168 (652613820) (Android 5.1)
You can root the fireTV but there is no way to update the base OS, it isn't an unlock and there is a newer custom rom (likely not to have one either)
Here is a link to the root solution -
Here is a link to a custom rom (it has bugs and is still android 5.1 based)
But back to your app issue, what specific apps were you looking to install? Maybe i have some clues, i have a couple of firetv2's i use.
The ones i need are specific to Australia like 9 now, foxtel go, 7plus along with stan. There is probably more but thats all i know and i know as a fact they were developed after android 5 so finding a version that supports the fire TV gen 2 is highly unlikely
