Is there any new root methods as of 2021 that work?

I don't have experience with the hardmod option, I can't downgrade the firmware because they removed Apply Update From ADB and the mtk-su method doesn't work.

I'm on Fire OS 5.6.8.0 and nothing's worked. How would I downgrade if there's no apply update via adb or is there a root method that works without hardmodding?

There's no way to do that. You have only to repurpose your Fire tablet:
  • Digital clock.
  • Digital picture frame.
  • Virtual MIDI keyboard.
  • Home automation panel.
  • VirtualTablet, a virtual drawing tablet.
Sorry I was being an idiot while posting that, I did find a solution to root and install TWRP. If anyone needs step by step instructions i'll reply to you with instructions.

Instructions please!!
Thank you for asking for instructions. I'm happy to help.

You will need to download these files

You'll also need to be running Linux (not terminal emulators)
In most cases use Lubutnu 18.04
If you want to install roms it'll be in Fire HD 8 and HD 10 development with 26 threads (not the 30+ thread)

First: Download and put your files on the desktop and extract brick-douglas.
Open the folder
Go to Tools and open a terminal here.

Enter these commands first:
sudo apt update
sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo apt install python3 python3-serial adb fastboot dos2unix
sudo systemctl stop ModemManager
sudo systemctl disable ModemManager

Once finished reboot your device to recovery:
Erase data by selecting Wipe Data/Wipe Cache.
Await for it to complete.
Now go to reboot to bootloader and select it.

Now it shall begin.

Execute this command: sudo brick-9820.sh

Wait for it to finish and you should see:
Writing Brick on your tablet
Force it off by Pressing and holding Power + Volume UP and wait for the screen to turn black.
Disconnect the device.
Exit all windows including terminal
Now extract amonet-douglas-v1.2.zip.
Now open amonet again
Now go to Tools > Open Terminal

Now it is time to unlock the bootloader.
Type in: sudo bootrom-step.sh
Press enter
Let it flash, NOTE this will take a while! PLEASE LET IT COMPLETE OR YOU WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE.
DO NOT LET YOUR DEVICE BOOT INTO FireOS when the process is done.
Next type in: sudo fastboot-step.sh
It will now boot into a hacked fastboot mode and begin the payload to install TWRP. Let this finish or your device maybe bricked.
Once done it will reboot into TWRP and the process is finished!
You have now exploited your device! Now you can flash Magisk to root your device!

I need help I'm stuck at "USB Transfering..." on my device and "Sending 'brick'" on my Virtual Machine.
