Every OTA update removes root due to the way Amazon refreshes the system partition. It is a consequence of the process, not necessarily an intentional action. As for FireOS 5, 3rd gen devices are EOL and differ technically from 4th gens despite a similar exterior. There is ZERO business case for pushing a major update to a 5+ year old gizmo which will undoubtedly generate service calls and a few bricked devices.
Hey there, the new guy here *winx
I just hope Amazon will at some point set our old HDX 8.9 3Gen free and let us downgrade (or flash) them without all this nonsense.
Me as a noob in this type of stuff is getting headaches just finding out what I need to do...
As you said, 5+ years old... no real updates anymore... isnt it time to "let us go" *waves hands peacefully
