So,The Kindle Fire just released a few days ago and it’s already been rooted,thanks to the peeps at XDA. And the process is fairly simple too.So let’s get straight to it.
Enable ADB Access
If you’re the kind of person that likes to get intimate with your Android hardware, access the file system and generally get your hands dirty, then you’ll be needing ADB access, or Android Developer Bridge for those not all acronym’d up.
To get access, you’ll need to get hold of the Android SDK from here and then add the Vendor ID for Amazon’s Lab126 (0×1949) to the adb_usb.ini file. Chances are that if you’re doing this, the previous sentence made perfect sense to you, but if not, a quick Google search will yield the information about the Android SDK that you require.
Step 1: Go to %USERPROFILE%\.android , once you’re there, edit the adb_usb.ini file and add the following line at the end:
0x1949 then Save and exit.
Step 2: Navigate to the location where you have installed the Android SDK; open the folder labeled google-usb_driver and hunt down the android_winusb.inf file and under the following lines under the [Google.NETx86] and [Google.NTamd64] sections:
;Kindle Fire %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006 %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006&MI_01
Save and exit the file. That’s it, you’re done with the ADB part.
Enable Root Access
Step 1: Plug in your Kindle Fire to your PC, we’re assuming you’ve already plugged it in since you did go through the above written ADB hassle.
Step 2: Open Device Manager from your PC, and under “Other Devices”; you should see the Kindle Fire, now select the android_winusb.inf file.
Step 3: Enable installation of apps from Unknown Sources. You can do so by tapping the top-most bar on your Kindle Fire and navigate to Choose More and head over to Device, over there you should see a listed device.
Step 4: Head over to this thread over at XDA and download the SuperOneClick tool.
Step 5: Run SuperOneClick and simply click on the Root button on the top-left of the tool, that’s all. You now have a rooted Kindle Fire with complete Superuser access. Refer to the screenshot below if you’re still confused where / what to click.
Enjoy your kindle(s)!
