Default [ROOT] Kindle Fire HD 7"

This is a guide on how to root the 7.1.5-7.2.2-7.2.3-7.3.0 updated versions of the KFHD.



ALL CREDITS GIVEN ON BOTTOM OF OP



Downloads are at bottom aswell





I am in no way responsible for what you do to your phone. Use at your own risk!







Make sure you have the Kindle Drivers.



Bin4ry's Tool has ADB so no need to install seperate.




Make sure you your Device has Enable ADB on.

Settings>Security>Enable ADB.








1.install the drivers for the Kindle


2.unzip Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v17


3.run the RunMe.bat


4.choose the normal method


5.if it says it didnt work its fine it will still root.


6.there will be a part where you have to select restore so pay attention to that.


7.after that your device will be slow after it reboots, this is normal.


8.once the device is rebooted run the RootQemu.bat file and choose Root


9.it will connect through ADB and reboot your device


10.after it reboots it says to press any key to continue.


11.keep doing this until it says completed.


12.Your device will be rooted after the proccess and once the final reboot is done
you should have SuperUser and access to system files.

I've followed the above instructions to the letter but have been unable to root my kindle fire hd 7" running version 7.2.3. I run the runme.bat file (step 3), select option 1 but it just says ' connect device in usb debugging mode now' and sits there without any further prompts. The device has adb enabled, I've installed the kindle fire drivers, have java se7 installed and have android sdk installed with ' Google usb drivers' installed through it. I've tried it on a laptop running xp and Windows 7, both just sit at the same point in root_with_restore v17. I would really appreciate any ideas on this one, thanks.

check and see if your pc reads your kindle fire hd by going to device manager under kindle it should say android composite adb interface. also people have been having problems with 3.0 usb ports, make sure your plugged into a 2.0 usb port.

I have used Bin4ry's Root Tool successfully to root my Sony Xperia Tipo phone

However I get the same problem as elfrider on my Kindle with version 7.2.3 firmware.

If you put bin4ry tool in an easy location e.g. c:\root (make a new folder) then run a cmd prompt as administrator and then:

cd c:\root
stuff\adb devices

* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
emulator-5554 offline

I can only get a device listed at all by running device manager, deleting both kindle fire->android composite ADB Interface and portable devices->Kindle, re-boot, reinistall adb driver, connect kindle.

Perhaps the keyword here is "offline"

I was also having trouble getting adb to see the device, even though Composite ADB Interface was there in the Device Manager. After much searching, I found that I needed to put 0x1949 in C:\Users\<my name>\.android\adb_usb.ini. Neither the file nor the directory existed on my system, so I created them both and put that number on a line by itself, saved the file, unplugged/replugged the Fire, and it worked!

Azwei you are a hero!

Now playing minecraft (previously purchased on Google play store) on my Kindle Fire, which has SuperUser status!

A couple of factors here:

1) to produce the .android folder, Create new folder and name it ".android." (note the dots at beginning and end) otherwise you get an error regarding filenames needed. The final dot is removed by windows.

2) the emulator-5554 offline message I was getting is due to having BlueStacks android emulator installed on my PC. It also causes multiple errors when trying to root the kindle. Solution either uninstall BlueStacks or use a different PC.

I ran the bin4ry tool and it worked as expected, with the need to confirm a data restore on the Kindle itself, and it re-booted as expected.
The Qemu tool did not seem to run correctly, but after a reboot, the SuperUser app was installed, so something must have worked.

I followed this guide to install Google Play http://www.androidauthority.com/kindle-fire-hd-7-inch-install-google-play-store-123353/

Thanks to all involved. Merry Xmas

For some reason the runme.bat isn't working.
  • I've tried running it regularly, and it says to connect it to usb using normal mode. I connect it and nothing happens.
  • I've tried running it as an administrator using normal mode, it goes through the regular steps but while it does it says "cannot find the path specified"
  • I've also tried running the .bat file through both the desktop, C drive itself, another of my drives, and even the kindle fire itself. No luck

I've gone through this topic a bunch of times, doing everything everyone else has said with no positive results. I got the Kindle Fire for X-mas.

My pc specs are:
WIndows 7 Pro 64-bit
AMD Phenom II X4 925
ASRock m3a770de
8 gb A-Data DDR3 1600 RAM
Radeon 6870
Boot drive is 120gb OCZ Agility 3
Other drives are 320gb Western Digital, and 1tb Seagate

Kindle Fire HD 7"
System Version 7.2.3
using cord it came with
never been rooted

This isn't my first time rooting/jailbreaking. I've already done 2 of my android phones and my iPhone 3GS. The iPhone was the most pain to do, and this seems to be the second lol

What do you get if you use a cmd prompt as I did in post 14:
(Folder Location of adb.exe)\adb devices

Hey Inksaver.

Congratulations on your Success. Unfortunately, ive been getting confused!

id say im fairly good with computers, managed to successfully complete a number of workarounds and lift restrictions on devices. however this is getting me!

i badly want to access my google play store like yourself.

would you be a legend and possibly give a step-by-step, in laymans, on how you achieved your success haha..

would be greatful i really would, same as you

not sure where im going wrong, could you elaborate on the folders, and also elaborate on PRallday186's OP a little..

for example,' install drivers for the kindle' where?

also 'azwei' posted this:
" I found that I needed to put 0x1949 in C:\Users\<my name>\.android\adb_usb.ini. Neither the file nor the directory existed on my system, so I created them both and put that number on a line by itself,"


would you please do a fresh step by step to stop the confusion, got my kindle fire hd for crimbo.. and im not keen on the restrictions.

managed to get adw lancher ex running on it.. altho.. ive not worked out how to change backgrounds yet.

feel free to pm me, and ill be happy to paypal you a few quid for your time and effort.

Sam

Funny thing is after I did that, the root worked! Thanks man, you're a savior.

Ok, I'm dying with this ADB business.

I've followed every guide I could find on these forums and others.

I'm running win7 have adb enabled on kindle fire 7 hd and for some reason every time I plug the kindle in device manager shows:
"portable decices> Kindle"
if I manually update drivers I can force it to switch to "kindle> "android adb interface"" drivers BUT can not get it to install the composite device as everyone else can.
**in the idiots guide above, I can do all the prep but as soon as the steps say "plug in device" I get brick walled because I only get one or the other of the 2 items I should see in device manager (therefore - I can not use the rooting tools since my kindle wont show up properly in my devices/adb devices check)**
it seems to always install EITHER portable device>kindle OR the android adb interface - I can't get both to show up as it says they should in some of the descriptions.

Tried:
-creating/editing the ".android" folder and ini file.
- getting sdk manager and using the drivers from there. I've tried drivers from links in these forums and from Amazon help several times.
-forcing installation of adb or mtp drivers
-switching from usb hub/extender to usb2 directly in computer

I'm assuming I wont see any devices listed under adb devices in cmd prompt until I get it to load the drivers as composite device.
I go this to work on my father's XP computer for his nook, but can't figure it out for the Kindle on my Win7 set up.

who has some great ideas?

sorry to hear your troubles! try these alternative kindle drivers. make sure to uninstall the old ones by right clicking the device that pops up when you connect the kindle, both "kindle" and "android adb interface" and clicking uninstall,. reboot your pc and install these drivers here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/88552195/kindle_fire_usb_driver.rar then connect the kindle and go back to device manager to see if Android Composite Adb Interface pops up.

Default Having one issue.

Running Bin4ry's script to root; I'm able to push busybox, su, and superuser, then Restore and reboot. When I boot back up and the script wants to "copy files to it's place", the next lines are:

mount: permission denied (are you root?)
You can close all command-prompts now!
After reboot, all is done! Have fun!
Bin4ry
Press any key...

Where did I go wrong? Never got a last reboot, don't have superuser installed, and don't have root. Also tried running the modified RunMe for people having the permission denied issues. Any suggestions? And just to be clear, I am running adb with no problems. I can see my device, and communicate with it (ie: "adb reboot" will reboot my device).

Running 7.2.3

EDIT: Found this fix and everything is working flawlessly! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=36373627

Thanks a million for this post and step by step instuctions! YAY! KFHD IS ROOTED!!!

Press any key...

Where did I go wrong? Never got a last reboot, don't have superuser installed, and don't have root. Also tried running the modified RunMe for people having the permission denied issues. Any suggestions? And just to be clear, I am running adb with no problems. I can see my device, and communicate with it (ie: "adb reboot" will reboot my device).

Running 7.2.3

EDIT: Found this fix and everything is working flawlessly! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=36373627

Thanks a million for this post and step by step instuctions! YAY! KFHD IS ROOTED!!!
Glad to hear !! if everything is good ! kinology has an update! go ahead and flash that bad boy! igf anything just PM me and ill be glad to help with anything else ;]

I'm terribly sorry if this was answered somewhere else in the thread. I'm having a REALLY hard time figuring out what's going on, and what troubleshooting has been done in this thread already that I should be doing, so I'll just post my problem.

Kindle Fire HD 7"
Firmware: 7.3.0

I run 'RunMe.bat'. I type 1, hit enter.

It goes through all the things, but everything says "The system cannot find the path specified."

When I do CMD and do adb devices, the device is listed.

EDIT: Nevermind. After trying it, like, 6 times, it worked all of a sudden. o.0; Thanks!

When it says to click restore, my Kindle still hasn't done anything. When it says it will reboot it, it doesn't.

TO FOLKS HAVING ISSUES:

Check my reply earlier up in the thread. Adding C:\WINDOWS\System32 to my "path" in your environmental variables relieved my issues. And, even if you'd rather not, do a factory reset, then use to root tool.

If all goes well, you'll root. If you get the 7.3 update, allow it to happen. This exploit works in the update.

Thanks for the help...it worked! however, when trying to go to es explorer in Root Settings when I try to check the Root Explorer option it says failed. Is there something I missed? Thanks again.

Double check and make sure you do have Superuser installed, and binaries are up to date. To check binaries, open SuperSU and a window will pop up if they need updated.

Just a heads up: Bin4ry's Root with Restore is now up to v26. Not that it matters much since v17 works just fine.

something to try is clear data and cache of both apps and see if that helps. also if it doesnt. try re installing the playstore, and make sure every step is covered. happened to me and that seemed to work

I'll tinker with it and make an edit with my findings tomorrow.

UPDATE: Bin4ry's v26 confirmed to work (Even on 7.3.0). But it installs ChainsDD Superuser rather than ChainFire SuperSU. No biggie, all you have to do is reinstall it from the play store if you want it.

also when doing the steps make sure that when you install market first. go into it and sign in to he market and then install gplay. that would give a fc if its not done that specific way . hope this helps and let us know

Hey Guys, I'm having an issue rooting the Kindle Fire HD 7.3.0 See picture link. Does Restore and says Successful, going to reboot your device in 10 seconds.

Right after waiting for device to show up I get errors.
