Hi

I'm looking to buy a 1st or 2nd Gen Amazon Fire TV (not the Fire Stick), preferably one that is rooted or on a firmware that is possible to root. Anyone have anything?

cheers

I have a Fire TV 2nd edition (This one). It's been used almost daily since being bought in April 2017 but is in very good condition. I was just looking to upgrade to an Nvidia Shield as I'm after a bit more oomph and I want to stream games over to the living room.

Not sure about rooting as it's not something I've delved into. It's running software version 'Fire OS 5.2.6.9'.

Not sure of the going rate... How does £40 posted via Royal Mail 2nd Class Recorded sound?

If you mean £5, I'll definitely take it. No need for pictures assuming you say it's in decent condition.

Just checking eBay and they seem to go for between £38 to £45 with £4.50 postage on top. I think £40 posted would be fair and it wouldn't be worth it for me to go lower, even for the sake of a fiver.

Can understand if you want to source one for £30, so I wish you good luck. If you change your mind then let me know.

Cool. Got a couple of household tasks to go through today (Oh the joys of a bank holiday) so I'll get the device formatted and upload some pictures tonight. After which, if you would like to go ahead then PM me your address. I'll then send off my payment details and when payment is confirmed I'll post first thing tomorrow morning.

Right, sorry about that - Had a long and hectic day!

I've attached a picture of the everything included. I've even provided a practically new remote for you too - the one that came originally with the Fire TV was functioning just fine, but the back panel was sliding off a little too easily for my liking.

Fully restored and will boot up to setup. I'll send you my account details now by PM. If payment has been received by morning I'll get it posted first thing.
