That's because there isn't a definitive answer. Once someone finds a way to root it, Amazon is very prompt at plugging the hole. No consistently reliable method has been found to root latest generation of Fire devices + latest FireOS.

If your reason to root is to get custom ROM, you're most likely out of luck... unless of course, when you get your Fire HD, and there's a way to root it at that time... that AMZN hasn't plugged.

If your reason to root is to get Google services or get different launcher, then there are ways to get those without rooting, so you should be covered.

Thanks for the reply. At a minimum I'd be looking to get rid of as much of the Amazon apps and services as possible, replacing them with Google equivalents.
