HOW TO HACK YOUR KINDLE FIRE
And change it in a full android tablet
Step 1: On your Kindle Fire go to More > Settings > Device > and turn “Allow Installation of Applications” to On.
Step 2: Download and install the Android SDK Manager. It may require to install the Java SE Development (JDK) if you don’t already have it.
Step 3: Start Android SDK Manager
Step 4: Uncheck Android 4.0 and check Android 2.33. Also ensure that Google USB Driver Package is checked. Click install packages. It will install the SDK first, and then you must click install again to install the Google USB Driver Package. Once complete close the Android SDK Manager
Step 5: Navigate to C:\Android\extras\google\usb_driver and right click on android_winusb and select “open with”. Open it with Notepad
Step 6: Find the following lines [Google.NETx86] and [Google.NTamd64] and place the following text directly under each line and save and close the file
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006&MI_01
Step 7: In Windows Explorer go to %USERPROFILE% and select Organize > Folders and search options > View > select Show hidden files, folders, and drives > click Apply and OK.
Step 8:.Double click on android folder. Inside you will find adb_usb.inf. Open that file with Notepad and verify the value contained is: 0×1949. If not, erase everything and put this value 0x1949 then save it.
Step 9: Plug in your Kindle Fire, and go to Device Manager ( Start - control panel – hardware and sound – device manager) . You will see Kindle Fire under “other devices”. Right click on Kindle fire, and select Update Driver Software > Browse my computer for driver software. Make sure “include subfolders” is checked, then click Browse and navigate to C:\Android\extras\google\ and click OK then Next. You may receive a warning that “Windows can’t verify the publisher of this driver software” but that’s okay. Double click “Install the driver software anyway”. Windows will install the driver, and you should receive a confirmation that it installed the “Android Composite ADB Interface”. You’ll then notice this interface under “Android Phone” in device manager. You’ve completed the driver installation, close out of device manager
Step 10: Go to start and type CMD to open terminal. At the terminal type the following:
This is assuming that you installed the Android SDK in the root directory of the drive as outlined in Step 1.
If successful you will get a message that looks like the following:
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
Close out of the command prompt.
Step 11: Just download Astro file manager, open the ASTRO folder and double click on Astroinstall. It will install the Astro.apk on the device.
Step 12: Download (com.android.apkinstaller-1.apk)
Step 12: In your device folder ( removable disc G or H or M) create a new folder. ( I named mind Side loaded apps)then Place com.android.apkinstaller-1.apk and any other .apk apps you already have on your pc in this folder.
Step 13: Disconnect your device and then in the Kindle Fire, open Astro file manager, you will find com.android.apkinstaller1-.apk in the folder you’ve just created and install it.
Step 14: Now you can install the.apk apps you’ve side loaded in the same folder of your device.
The method I took to do this is maybe not the fastest one but it work. My Kindle Fire is still not root but It is now a full Android tablet since I can enjoy every android apps like ICS launcher or Dolphin Browser HD. There actually is a way to root the Kindle Fire version 6.2.2 ( as you can see on this website: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1399889) but it is way too complicated for me so I’ll wait and looking for the easiest way to do it.
The 10th first steps are the first step for rooting a old version of the Fire. On this web page you will find everything about rooting a Kindle Fire (http://www.kindlefirewire.com/2011/11/16/how-to-root-kindle-fire-video-tutorial/ )
You can find every link I've post at Kindle Fire Wire | Amazon Kindle Blog . For the super one click software you will find it on this web page. (http://www.wupload.com/file/2633288597/SuperOneClickv2.3.3-ShortFuse.zip ) because the link on the kindle fire wire website is no longer available.
I hope this will help .
Thank you everybody for sharing your tips
