It is currently running Fire os 5.3.6.4. Also is there a way to essentially move all the data from my tablet to my computer, incase I want to restore my tablet to how it currently is now, later on?

Aside from enabling ADB mode in developer options you can’t really do anything to that firmware at this time. You can’t unlock the bootloader to install a custom ROM and no ROOT at this time. You can however install the google play store, just google “google play store on fire xda” and there’s a straight forward tutorial on how to install it. From there you can install a launcher to give it an Android look. When not using the table enable airplane mode to avoid auto OTA updates.

Thank you ! If you don't mind me picking your brain a tad more, is there a way to downgrade or must you root before downgrading ?

Several people have attempted to downgrade but essentially bricked their device in the process. I recommend waiting for a root ....make sure you remain on 5.6.3.0.**under system updates it shows 5.3.6.4 (its wrong) but clicking on "learn more" shows the correct firmware** ...just avoid any other OTA upgrades.

however there is a tool to mess around with your tablet ...google " XDA AMAZON 7 7TH GEN TOOL FOR FIRE OS 5.6.X and 5.4.0"
