Anyone know what version the referbs are, or is it randomness? Also is the root/mod situation? Is it the same/similar as the fire tablets? I have few of the fire 5th gens 5.1.x that are right at the cutoff and "seni-rootable" and was hoping to find at least hope that I can use the stuff I buy like I actually own it..

It is random. The FireStick2 has never been rooted. You can side-load apps though.

Thanks, Amazon is such a pain in the azz. The hardware is "ok" (aka it's cheap) but the hoops amazon makes you jump through to use YOUR purchase like YOU actually own is just ridiculous.

Here's an idea for ya amazon, how about you make your products good enough that people actually WANT to use it instead of having to FORCE people to use it..

Thats what I did, and excuse me for attempting to figure out whether amazons monopolistic anti-completive practices were as bad as they are on the fire tablet, turns out they are worse. And having to ask who has ultimate control over what you do with the products you purchase is not a question that you should have to ask..
