That worked, thank you! Going to donate a couple of bucks to the project.
Here's what I did so maybe it helps someone. Downloaded Kingoroot apk, installed it via adblink. On the firestick I ran the app and let it root my device, it says it was successful and installed it own SU. I then Uninstalled both of the apps via the firestick menu. I also downloaded and installed Super SU apk via adblink. After that I am good.
Not sure if kingoroot actually rooted? I was pretty late to the party and was pretty sure I was unable to root. Maybe a false positive or something.
Glad it's fixed!
