Can I Root an Amazon Fire tablet?

Episode 1606 (1:48:38)

John from San Diego, CA
 Amazon Fire tablet

John got an Amazon Fire Tablet and he'd love to wipe it clean to get rid of having to go into Amazon for everything. Leo says one thing he can do is put the Google Play store on it. Once done, everything else on Android is available. Leo says he stopped using the FireTV because it was all about Amazon as well. He could maybe "root" the tablet in order to make it Android only.
