The 2017 Amazon Fire HD 10 can now be rooted

We’ve seen a lot of progress when it comes to unlocking the bootloader and rooting various Amazon tablets as of late. In fact, it was back in January when the 2018 Amazon Fire HD 8 was unlocked and rooted. This was followed up with an unlock and root method that was made available for the 5th and 7th gen Amazon Fire 7 tablets. Then, less than a week, later the 2015 Amazon Fire TV was rooted and made public to the Android community. Today, we wanted to highlight a guide that shows you how to root the 2017 Amazon Fire HD 10.

Amazon Fire HD 10 XDA Forum

This complete guide was put together thanks to XDA Senior Member k4y0z who will walk you through how to unlock the tablet, install TWRP, gain root access (and even unbrick) to the device. You will need a Linux installation or live-system as well as a micro-USB cable if you want to accomplish all of this.
