Rooting the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX tablet on the new FireOS 126.96.36.199 firmware isn’t that hard to do. Once you are done, you can start installing all the same applications you were enjoying before. One root application you might not have had the pleasure of installing already is the Tasker app. With Tasker, you can change-up your operating system and tweak it a million different ways. It’s not the same as installing a custom ROM or the Xposed Framework, but it’s the next best thing to tweak your OS if you do not want to install either of those two things.

- Install the application and tap on the KingRoot icon from your app drawer once you are finished.
- Tap on the large ‘Root’ button that is on the main page of the app. The exact wording of the KingRoot application changes between versions. You’ll have to assume the button I’m talking about.

In conclusion, that’s how to root the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX running the latest FireOS 184.108.40.206 update. Anyone can now start installing root apps from the Google Play Store like the Tasker application or the Xposed Framwork we mentioned earlier. However, the KingRoot tool does not require an unlocked bootloader, nor does it unlock the bootloader during the rooting procedure for you. That means you cannot install a custom recovery just yet, unless the bootloader is unlocked. Once you have unlocked the bootloader on your Amazon device, you can start installing custom recoveries like the TWRP Recovery — the most popular aftermarket recovery in the world.
