  3. Michael says:

    My kindle is stuck on the startup screen, even with repeated attempts at restarting. Cannot continue with root and now the device manager says it’s an unknown device.

    • Michael says:

      The script went through the first phase of root. Last message is H:\…\KindleFireRoot631>fastboot oem idme bootmode 5002

      • admin says:

        Try updating the unknown device with drivers then re-run script.

        • Ben says:

          I was panicking a little bit, but his was exactly what I was looking for, thanks man

          • Ben says:

            actually nevermind, it failed to update this time, and so I went back to do it, and ‘kindle’ is gone from device manager :/

            • Ben says:

              actually unplugging it and a hard reset got it to show up again… but in the middle of the cmd running again, I got blue screen of death (sadly normal for my computer :/).
              I then just booted up, plugged in my kindle (which had gone back to normal) and ran the root again.It went all the way, said it was a success!
              Except my kindle is exactly the same?? I just get that triangle thing on my start up?

        • lmart says:

          In the middle of the batch file, my KindleFire hung and now I can’t do a thing with the device … have absolutely no idea how to get my KindleFire back

    • ben 2 says:

  4. Ricky says:

    I have followed this procedure to root my 6.3.1 kindle fire but stuck at waiting for device
    updated the drivers
    run the script rootkindlefire but hung with “waiting for device”
    Waited for 30 mins ..nothing happened.
    now the device is stuck with Kindle Fire screen and not booting further
    worried if it is bricked
    please help me

    • admin says:

      Try updating the drivers.

      • jeremiah says:

        that doesn’t help.

        it is not possible to root a kindle fire on a 64-bit operating system because of the shit drivers that are distributed (they don’t work on 64-bit windows.)

        the entire rooting community still hasn’t figured this out yet, and many kindle fires have been thrown away, stuck in fastboot, because no one seems to know this.

        pack of morons, all of you.

  5. Juan Pablo says:

    Has anyone try it succesfully?

    I’m interested but a little frightened.

    Thanks!

    • Robert says:

      I tried it Max’s way but not too many people are having luck going this route. Try http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwMHIkX20YI. I tried Max’s way first and managed to brick mine. Whether it was operator error or not, it still happened. Tried updating and re-installing drivers for the last 3 days. Got help the second day but all he could tell me was to “update the drivers in that mode as shown in video!”. I would run script only for it to say “daemon not running or not found or something” and then “daemon found or started” half the time. The other half I would hit enter to start root and it would only say “Rooting” and nothing else. After about 90 seconds the Kindle would power cycle but on the screen it would still only say “Rooting”. I left it alone for 90 minutes while getting dinner at Wal-Mart, came back and it didn’t change. After the 3rd night trying I looked up other methods and that’s when the video previously mentioned was found. 5 minute video and I was done before it ended the first time I watched it. My id is clucasrob85 on Youtube. Just wish doing my phone was this easy. Time to start buying bricked Kindles, jk lol.

      • danny says:

        Thanks for your response. I will be trying this tonight when I get home.

        There is obviously a bug in Max’s script, but he’s being absolutely no help with these problems that are occurring.

        I have rooted all of mine and my friends phones. G1, myTouch 3G, myTouch 4G, Inspire 4G, Nexus One, Samsung Vibrant, HP TouchPad, and my current Galaxy Nexus… I have never once bricked a device, and Max is telling me that I ran the “one click” tool incorrectly.

        Max, you should take down your rooting tool and look into debugging it before more people soft brick their Kindles.

        • Robert says:

          Max had also been telling everyone to simply re-install the driver or update it or both. I rooted my EVO 3D no problem using thesame driver, but he said to delete it and start fresh in the video. I say if it works, dont change it. It could be either his script or the driver that he has setup for us to download and install. Either way,everyone is soft bricking their kindle using this method and all max has to say to everyone is update the drivers

          • admin says:

            Not sure what the problem is but the script works, you may have to reboot the Kindle Fire once if it gets stuck. I don’t know if you tried that but I made the script initially because the Kindle Fire Utility wasn’t working for me. But use whatever works for you.

          • Robert says:

            I got mine working before the end of the video the first time i watched it. Unfortunately as i already knew streaming the amazon prime videos wouldn’t work, all of her books that she had on it were no longer visible so back to stock it went anyway. Now just trying to update to 7.1.5. or 10.1.3. I’m not sure which I need. The 7.1.5 is 1st gen fire hd and the 10.1.3 is 2nd gen fire hd. Any idea on how to tell which is mine Max?

      • Hillsy says:

        Thank you so much for posting this video. It was super easy to do and worked perfectly!

        • Robert says:

          Not a problem. If you notice anyone else having problems with their kindle fire, or are wanting theirs rooted, please send them there to follow the video. I didn’t make it, but I sure as hell followed it the first time and it worked beatifully without watching it a second time. Was it that easy for you?

  6. danny says:

    I also followed this video exactly and now my friend’s Kindle is stuck at the “kindle fire” boot logo. The computer does not recognize the kindle at all, no adb or anything… Please help

    • kindle says:

      Keep installing the driver every time you get stuck – and keep the script window open. I had to do it a total of 3 times and it worked first time through.

  7. IVan says:

    I also followed this video exactly and now my friend’s Kindle is stuck at the “kindle fire” boot logo. And windows says it can’t recognize the drivers when I try to install. They worked before running the bat file. Please help!!! Why is this happening, it is not isolated case!

  8. Michael says:

    I got it working. For some reason when I had KFU script open in the background (not running), this script worked like it was supposed to. I don’t know if this had anything to do with it or not.

  9. Robert says:

    Drivers installed and updated. Followed your instructions one at a time. Kindle Root started and last message stated “Waiting for Device”. Nothing happened after this and the Kindle is now stuck on the Yellow Triangle screen. Tried several times to get it to mount after this, but since the rooting and installation of the recovery did not finish, it is not seen as a kindle, and is not seen as a flash drive. Been trying to at least return to stock but recovery did not finish so no chance of that either. I need help asap please.

    • danny says:

      I agree, we are all stuck with a brick now. I appreciate the time you took creating this script and video to help us, but unfortunately we are all stuck with a useless screen now. Max, can you please work with one of the commenters to see what is going on? Or at least take down the download link before more people get their Kindle Fire bricked.

      • Robert says:

        Hey danny, I got mine working using this other method. SUPER EASY AND NO NEED TO MOVE FILES AROUND OR MANUALLY SETUP DRIVER SOFTWARE. After downloading the files, and unzipping them, you are 3 steps away from being done. 3!!!!!

    • admin says:

      update the drivers in that mode as shown in video!

  10. joe says:

    I have 6.3.1 and I downloaded the file. When I go to usb folder the third choice down is not the one in the video so I cannot update driver. Am I missing something.

    Thanks.

  11. Christian says:

    I can’t get it to uninstall the original driver.

  12. el flo says:

    admin.. i gotta problem, i tried rooting my kindle fire 7 os 6.3.1 using the above tutorial but i ran into a bottlneck while at it..the script kept saying waiting for device, so i unplugged and rebooted my kindle. now am stuck on the fire triangle screen. i have restarted my kindle severally to no avail. i even tried using kindle unbrick utility but it didnot work. i need help urgently.. thanx

    • Robert says:

      that is exactly what happened to mine to the “T”. as soon as i found that video that i have posted in here, my wifes kindle was fixed right away.

  13. el flo says:

    Never Mind, i have fixed it..Thanx though

  14. joe3 says:

    For windows xp, where to do you copy the adb_usb.ini file?

  15. Hillsy says:

    I’m following your directions step by step, but I do not have a .android file. I made sure hidden files were shown and it’s not there. I tried to create one, but every time my computer says “You must type a file name.” What am I doing wrong?

  16. KAR says:

    the KindleFireRootNew631.zip download link is down

    • KAR says:

      I found this link for the ppl who are trying to root , i think we could use it till admin update his link
      http://downloadandroidrom.com/file/KindleFire/root/KindleFireRootNew631.zip

      • Robert says:

        he probably took the link down until he could fix the problem everyone is having with it. i have a link to a separate video from youtube that has another method that currently works here in the comments section. if you notice the wording of the download KindleFireRootNew631.zip, that is his download that he uploaded for everyone. you just managed to find his file and reposted a link on his page that he took off as he was trying to fix it.

        Everyone please, at least for now, just use the link that i have here in the comments to either get your kindle fire rooted or to get your kindle fire back from being soft-bricked from trying this method. Just remember that as Max has said, streaming videos from amazon prime will not work, and from what I have found on my wifes kindle fire after we got hers rooted, it did not recognize the book files that we had placed on the kindle ourselves. She liked streaming videos and loved reading from her kindle fire so back to factory settings it went.

  17. Chad says:

    I think mine is bricked. It got as far as the boot-up screen with the fiire logo and says press the power key to go to recovery. But nothing happens. I can only turn it on and off. I think it’s bricked, but was wondering if anyone here had any advice on how it might be saved.

    I’ve tried reinstalling the drivers in Device Manager but it makes no difference.

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

  18. Vanna says:

    OMG, my kindle is stock with the logo on the screen for the past 4hours, I try rebooting and reinstalling the drive but no success. What can I do to save my kindle, please help anyone!!!

    • jeremiah says:

      same here. all of us with 64-bit windows are fucked.

      find a 32-bit windows machine and try again, it should work fine.

  19. josef says:

    Hey I dont know wha i did but I cannot use the kindle fire utility anymore so I cannot go in and adjust. I re downloaded the file but I do not see the same driver as described in the vid. I have the AOKP 10/29 build from xda it is the latest jellybean.

    Thanks

    Joe

  20. I found how to fixit. The script works, but as Max said, it needs to reinstall the ADB drivers. The solution is this:

    When the process get stuck in ‘waiting for device’ run SuperOneClick v2.3.3 > Select the Advanced tab and click on ‘Check Drivers’.

    It will ask for installing ‘forced ADB driver’ you obviously say YES!… The driver will be installed and the Max’s script will finish its process.

    Hope it helps.

  21. Bradley says:

    i can’t get this to work i have tried the above program and the kindle fire root utility both refuse to install the driver and if it does it just sits there and says rooting and does not do anything. my kindle fire runs 6.3.1 my pc runs Windows 8 Pro x64. i also tried from a pc running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 it installed the drivers but the script does not do anything

    • Bradley says:

      when i try to install the driver it says the hash is missing or corrupted or was been tempered with

    • Bradley says:

      i have tired drivers from about 10 different places and i can not get any to install on windows 8 they don’t seem to be compatible they install on windows 7 x32 but not anything x64 and none of the programs see my kindle i have tried on 2 different computers the programs don’t even get far enough to rewrite anything on my kindle

  22. Lisa says:

    Worked like a charm on 64bit Win7. Ran into a slight hangup in fastboot, rebooted the Kindle and it let me reinstall the drivers. Thanks for the great guide!

  23. Shotahx says:

    Hey im having trouble with the drivers i do the steps all correctly but i get an error saying

    Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device

    windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it,

    the hash for the file is not present in the specified catalog file. the file is likely corrupt or the victim or tampering

    if you know the manufacturer of your device you can visit its website and check the support section for the driver software.

    please help much appreciated Shotahx

    • This commonly happens when your download is corrupt. Maybe the download was stopped for a time and then continued.

      First, make sure you’re not have any ‘ADB Driver’ or ‘ADB Device’ listed in the Device Manager panel, if so, remove them. Then try to specify the correct folder where the driver is when you’re installing it.

      If you have done this and the problem persists, try to download the driver again, because it may be corrupt (as the OS is telling you).

  24. kar says:

    Do I need a factory cable to do this or can i do this with the regular stock cable? I have a factory cable that i especially bought for rooting and ROMing my kindle — can i use it with this tutorial?

  25. Priyal says:

    I followed your guide step by step, but now its stuck on the kkindle fire page on the device and the black window says waiting for device. I checked, there is no yellow triangle by the kindle…..! HELP! What should I do?? Is my kindle broken??

  26. Leslie says:

    I am having the same problem as Priyal. Followed the guide step by step, exactly, and then when I started rooting, the Kindle became stuck on the KindleFire load screen for hours and hours. Eventually I restarted it, which changed nothing and it just went to the screen. I tried unplugging it and restarting the process, but now my computer doesn’t even recognize it is attached and the screen flashes on the KindleFire load screen over and over on a continuous loop. Is there any way to wipe the fire and start fresh or do I just have a brick on my hands? My computer doesn’t even recognize the KF as attached.

  27. Dax says:

    I’ve rooted my kindle before. It’s updated to 6.3.1 and I re-rooted it. Today all of a sudden it seems to have broken root for no reason.

    He is my problem. I am still able to launch “Go Launcher” & Superuser still appears on my Kindle Fire.
    I use “File Explorer” to side load all my Apps and I used to be able to get in “data/data” folder under Internal storage, but File Explorer no longer asks for root permission.
    None of my memory editors work, Titanium Back up doesn’t work and Screen cast doesn’t work.
    When I reboot my device TWRP and FFF no are no longer there I can’t access it at all. It used to boot up with the Blue Kindle Fire logo.

    When I follow your direction and download your files this is the error I get.
    [IMG]http://i46.tinypic.com/29kus6d.png[/IMG]

    Any ideas?

  28. Trent says:

    I just started the root process. Followed all the directions for drivers installs. When I started the rooting process it said “starting daemon” or something, then waiting for device. Well now my device is stuck at the splash screen. Restarts won’t help!

    Dude, did the FIRST STEP of your guide freaking BRICK MY DEVICE???

    Please HELP!!!

  29. Mike says:

    KF 6.3.1. Stuck at “rooting”. Kindle stuck at “Kindle Fire”. Been there for hours. Did this three times. I’m glad to have software to de-brick my wife’s Kindle…I’d never hear the end of it.

  30. Mike says:

    Uh…no. Three attempts and no root. Stuck at opening screen. If this happens to you, download KindleUnbrickV0.1 to get your Kindle back. Plug in your Kindle and run KindleUnbrick. You’ll probably want to select the opening screen option. For my wife’s Kindle, this method most definitely does NOT work. Bummer….

  31. danilo kluyber says:

  35. Manny says:

  36. Kevin says:

    Since I rooted my kindle fire, i cannot use the kindle app. I cannot read any books on my kindle at all. All that happens when i try to open the app it says “the application is not registered, trying to register it now, try it again in a few seconds” it has been doing that since i rooted it early december.

    Also i have commented on this before and no one got back to me on this.

  37. Jose Tirado says:

    I followed the steps but my cmd is stuck on * daemon started successfully * and my kindle screen just displays the triangle with a flame in it.

  41. Nate says:

    i followed all the instructions. the rooter program stopped. and now my kindle is stuck at the menu with the flame and it says press power button for recovery menu. please help me

  42. Bob says:

    I am running a Kindle Fire with software version 6.3.1, which was previously rooted until software update. (Curse you Amazon!)
    My computer has Windows 7 64bit
    I downloaded adt-bundle-windows-x86_64 and ran SDK Manager.
    Ran and closed Eclipse although I am not sure why or what to do with it.
    (I think this idea came from a PC Mag article)
    Downloaded/installed:
    Android SDK Tools
    Android SDK Platform-tools
    Android 4.2 and all attendant programs
    All of the Extras including Google USB Driver.
    Downloaded KFU v0.9.6.
    Ran “install drivers” (Also omitted this step after uninstalling in subsequent attempts)
    Ran “run.bat.”
    In the cmd window that opens I get the I get the KFU menu but under that is listed:
    ADB Status: Offline
    Boot Status: Unknown
    I have also gotten:
    ADB Status: Online
    Boot Status: Unknown
    This happens ad lib whenever it feels like it.
    The Kindle never shows anything but the “You can now transfer files, etc” screen.
    I have gone from the KFU menu to Bootmode Menu and chosen Normal (4000), as well as, Fastboot. It says “Oops…something went wrong. We are unable to locate your Kindle Fire. Make sure it is plugged in and powered on.” (It was.)
    I have restarted both the Kindle Fire and the PC repeatedly. Uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. Uninstalled/reinstalled the software that comes with SDK Manager.
    Device Manager says under ADB Interface that it is Android Composite ADB Interface. Occasionally, however, I have had it listed further down the list as Kindle with the Yellow Error triangle and I have manually installed the drivers from there.

    Note: I have also tried:
    KindleFireRootNew631 which didn’t work at all for me.
    SuperOneClick v2.3.3.0 which tells me alternatively that my device appears to be already rooted, which is most definitely is not, and nothing…just kills ADB server and then starts ADB server and then….nada… Although the Windows circle thingie keeps circling, the task manager says it is “Not Responding”.
    I have moved the USB port that I am using, always on one of the Mobo backplate USB’s.
    Changed cables.
    Used a different computer.

    At the advice of another uber-user I deleted and/or uninstalled everything in sight.
    I then did a system restore on the PC.
    I restarted/rebooted the Kindle Fire and the PC.
    I plugged in the Kindle, went to Device Manager and uninstalled the drivers, disconnected and again restarted both things.
    When I re-plugged in the Kindle it attempted, unsuccessfully, to re-install the drivers.
    I went to Device Manger and noted the “Kindle” entry with a yellow triangle.
    I went to the KFU (0.9.6) and ran “Install the drivers”.
    In Device Manager “Kindle” disappeared and “ADB Interface” with the sub entry “Android ADB Interface” appeared without any yellow problem triangle.
    When I then clicked on the “run.bat” file it went to the .Kindle Fire Utility cmd window and listed ADB Status: Online and Boot Status: Unknown.
    I tried going to 1 Bootmode Menu and choose 1 Normal (4000). This did nothing to the Kindle but KFU now listed ADB Status as Offline.
    I restarted everything and am back to ADB STsatus: Online and Boot Status: Unknown.
    Again, at the much appreciated advice of another more knowledgeable user, I ignored the “Unknown” Boot status and clicked on “2″ to “Install Permanent Root with Superuser”. I get get the following response:

    126 KB/s (510876 bytes in 3.946s)
    /system/bin/sh: /data/local/fbmode: not executable: magic 7F45

    The kindle has been told to reboot in Fastboot Mode.

    twrp.img has been found.

    fff.bin has been found.

    **************************************************************
    * NOTICE *
    **************************************************************

    Fastboot uses a different device than ADB.
    You should check device manager for “Kindle” or “Amazon”

    If you see it, rerun the driver installer that came packaged with KFU.

    Installing FFF…

    ( waiting for device )

    It just hangs there doing nothing. I checked as suggested above and in device manager it still says Android ADB Interface not “Kindle” or “Amazon”.
    Please ANY help would be appreciated greatly. Thanks!

  43. James says:

    hey the android composite adb int. is installed properly but the script is stuck on “rooting” and kindle fire logo is showing on device.? Any advice

  44. mentor says:

    I just did what this tutorial says and my kindle fire get stuck on the kindle fire logo, the I reboot the kindle fire and shows me a yellow fire logo and the computer doesn’t know the device, just shows on the USB cotroller (device manager) “unknow device”, so my question its “what can i do ASAP to get my kindle back from this MF status?”
    I’ll be pending to your answer
    regards

    • doppelganger says:

      Mentor (January 31, 2013 at 11:00 am), I too just did what this tutorial says, and my kindle fire got stuck on the kindle fire logo, so I tried to reinstall the drivers and the installation failed. I disconnected the Kindle Fire, hooked it up to the charger, and then held the power button for up to 30 seconds (I think it was closer to 15 seconds) and the Kindle Fire turned off. Then I reconnected it to my computer, and a yellow fire logo appeared on the screen of the Kindle Fire. The device did show up in the Device Manager as “kindle” with the error symbol, I double clicked on it and was then able to successfully update the drivers, which reset the device list and now shows “Android Composit ADB Interface”. Unfortunately, when I subsequently tried to run the “rootkindlefire” batch file, I hit enter and the program hangs as soon as it starts “Rooting…” (the first time it made it through some of the rooting, and hung up before installing Busybox.) Wish I had seen your post before I tried this…I think I have a brick.

  45. Al says:

    I have a slight problem with the root process. It goes fine but then it goes to install SU Binaries and super user apk and it errors out saying device not found. any suggestions?

  46. Joe Momma says:

    Looks like everyone here has a brick with this video. Luckily I read the comments, but didn’t watch the video :P .Maybe it’s just with Windows x64 drivers?

  47. Justin says:

    Here is how you take your kindle fire out of the “push the button to recovery mode”

    1. download kindlefire utility_v6 (please google it)
    (plug your kindle to the usb already)
    2. unzip the file
    3. find the “update_drivers” inside the folder
    4. now it will run through a set of cmd (command prompt)
    5. Now, click on “run”
    6. choose “fast boot”
    => now you are safely back to kindle fire originally.

    NOW for rooting
    1.google Kindle fire Utility 0.9.6
    2.unzip the file
    3. go to the folder, find “run”

    for this step to work properly, you need to have your lastest kindlefire usb driver installed already.
    4. now choose “permanent root…” (something I dont remember)

    they will do the rest for you.

    5. download a favorite rom, and Gapps, now have fun.

    Hope its helped!

    Hi,

    First thanks for your tutorial I successfully rooter my Kindle 6.3.1 after months of searching web for accurate method. Now the reason I wanted to root was to install Google Play, I wish you had a tutorial for that here too.
    Please help I need to find at least the APKs GoogleServicesFramework, Vending, etc. that are matching the device or better another tutorial !!

    Best regards,
    AXL

      You just need to choose a Rom that you like the most (these roms appear all over this website, you can jus click to Home Tab above, and you can see Max has listed and reviewed them), then download its files,(sometimes they have 2 files, one is the framework file, one is the file of google apps “Gapps”) put them into your kindle through your computer (just like the USB transfer) then turn your Kindle to TWR Recovery (please google this or youtube the method)

      I think this is all you need for your kindle.
      Best,

      • Axl says:

        Thanx Justin, I got to install GApps onto AOKP ICS.
        I was wondering if I switch to my old rooted Amazon version, would Google Play still be available on that system??

        Rgds,
        Axl

        • Justin says:

          Hi Axl,

          AOKP ICS is a bit tricky, it needs the Gapps old version (I don’t remember the the date, but the file size is about 40ish MB). only this rom version needs old Gapps. But if you machine is running well now, you don’t need to do anything else.
          And No, Amazon Kindle won’t be able to run with google play. but you can download the Amazon Kindle reading to your rooted android Kindle now.

          Cheers,
          Justin

  55. joe says:

    has anyone else have this problem ?I Im not even getting a power like on the bottom the kindle when its pluged in .

    • Devin says:

      I had this problem too. How I fixed it was to shut down the Kindle, then plug in the power cord. The Kindle will automatically turn on and the light will be green. I pressed the power button just long enough for it to turn orange indicating it was charging. Then I left it alone to charge. Hopefully this helps you!

  56. Josh says:

    Very pissed off. I’m stuck at the logo and windows does not recognize the device at all. Says USB Device not recognized. Tried everything i can find and nothing works. PLEASE help me out here, my mom will be furious if this thing is bricked.

    • Josh says:

      yea so fuck you guy who created this shit ass tutorial. You bricked my kindle, and im pissed. you owe me a new kindle fire.

      asshole

    • Jonathon says:

      So yea, Having the same problem as this guy, Followed the instructions exactly, and while the script was running, the kindle rebooted, and now freezes at the kindle fire logo. When I checked, I was using 6.3.2, Someone else said it worked, thought I’d try, and it didn’t. The script did one transfer before the restart, and is now stuck on “waiting for device”. If you know a way to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated. And Josh, He don’t owe you anything, You knew the risk going into this. :P

      • Devin says:

        Have you tried this:
        leave the script running in its window. Keep the kindle plugged to your computer, then hold the power button until it turns off. Turn it back on, and the script should start running again and reboot and finish. If it works (and you have 6.3.2), you’ll notice that NOTHING changes. You won’t have the rooted apps (like wifi tether)..but you WILL be able to boot into TWRP…so it’s like we’re 1/2 rooted…

  57. joelorellan says:

    Will this work on kf 6.3.2?

  58. Devin says:

    Hi, I know you said you hadn’t tried this on 6.3.2 before, but I went ahead and gave it a go, and I have one tiny problem. I followed your directions to a “T” and got the script working and everything. It finished just like yours by saying “you Kindle is now rooted, have a great day” (or whatever it said…can’t remember verbatim right now because I just closed it). The only problem is that once my Kindle was restarted…it’s not rooted. I don’t have wifi-tether or Superuser, and when I went into ES File Explorer to try to get “root” permission, it said the test failed (I’m assuming the internal test to see if my device was rooted).

    My kindle isn’t bricked and still works perfectly, except it the root didn’t “take”. Any advice? Any chance of a 6.3.2 tutorial?

    Thanks!

    • Devin says:

      p.s. I CAN boot into the TWRP recovery, so it appears that my Kindle is half-rooted. Any suggestions on how to get full root? Am I going to have to flash a custom rom before I can get root capabilities?

    i finally got my kindle unbricked and working. if anyone needs help with theres they can skype me at supersolo123

  60. Tracie says:

    Hello Max….i just got my kindle fire and the version is 6.3.2…Please can make a video as to how to root it and install custom room on it. All the videos i see are on the version 6.3.1. Thanks a lot

  61. Guy says:

    My computer isn’t accepting the driver file in the usb_driver folder. It says ‘Your device does not support this driver. Please make sure it is fully compatible and try again.’ Is there a way to fix this?

  62. Scott says:

    Bricked mine too. Followed directions and got stuck on Kindle Fire screen. Not cool. Please take this down so no more people have theirs bricked. I highly suggest NOT using this!

  63. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera. Excellent Blog!
