ok update....
i deleted everything and uninstalled the KFHD drivers and started again from scratch
ho the joy when my device showed up in the CMD

so i am now sitting here with a rooted KFHD with google play installed and i have that droid wall and have blocked the OTA updates (fingers crossed)
can you confirm that droid wall will block the updates????

also 1 thing before i go have fun
the main reason i rooted was to remove the blot-ware, is there a list of things that can be removed or is it just a trial and error thing

again thanks for the help and effort you put into making the tut

Well done!

I do not know if DroidWall actually stops updates, but we can hope for the best.

Not sure what can safely be removed. I have ordered a factory cable and will wait for that to arrive before I start deleting bloatware, in case I brick it!

Hey I have rooted my kindle successfully after some work ^^, and some troubleshooting, but figured it out.

I am now on this step:
Continue from here if files already in /sdcard/Downloads (Win 7)
31)Tap "Download" folder. This should reveal the 3 files you copied here earlier from your PC
32) Tap "GoogleServicesFramework.apk" This should install it from here, with a confirmation message.

And When I try to install I get install failed, any ideas on what to do?

Hello!
I already have my Kindle Fire HD 7" rooted, but now I have a problem with the MTP because it has the yellow warning triangle.
The problem is that I can see the Kindle as a removeable drive, but I can't see the Kindle's folders to add files from my computer to the Kindle; and I don't know what to do. I read the comment that was post on January 2nd talking about this, but to be honest I don't understand a word. :'(
Quote: "...you add the adb_usb.ini file and typing adb devices in a command prompt will give you access to the device." My question is: In wich folder should I add the adb_usb.ini file?
If it's not much trouble, could you please explain me (step by step) what should I do to resolve this problem?
BTW, I have a Compaq Mini with Windows XP system.
Thank you so much for the attention!!!
(So sorry for my english, but it's not my first language!)

@weed demon

Try using ES File Explorer to copy the GoogleServicesFramework.apk directly to the /system/app/ folder and see if it will install from there.

@Yaniwa

The problem with WindowsXP and the Kindle is you cannot see it as a removeable drive, rooted or not.
There are a number of ways of viewing your files, such as setting up ES File Explorer with a LAN share.
Another way is to download AirDroid from the Market, run it, then on your PC (connected to the same LAN) open the IP given Example:192.168.1.24:8888 and enter the password provided on your kindle, and away you go.
If you click on Files (on PC) you will see the contents of your SD card (on Kindle) allowing you to upload/download files as required.

@awesomexful

Sounds like it is still only half way through the process. Run the rooting method again, and let it take its time after the first stage.

@Inksaver:

Great post and thanks for all the additional help you've been providing.

I'm running 7.2.3 on Windows XP and am having the same problem as Kindleking and awesomexful. Running slow/sluggish seems to be normal after the first reboot, but I've tried letting it sit for a long time, rerunning RunMe, rebooting the device, reinstalling the adb drivers, factory reset, and nothing helped.

When I tried running RootQemu.bat (which should be for non-7.2.3 only) and followed its procedure, I got the confirmation from the command window that it was rooted. The device did function normally (no lags), but it wasn't rooted.

Is there anything else I could try? Thanks!

@awesomexful and Kindleking

Have you guys found a fix on yours?

What can I say but amazing work.

It all worked outstandingly well.

Maybe a tip, I tried and tried to connect to the server to add my Google account to the Market app.. In the end, I just restarted my Kindle and it worked first time.

Thanks ever so much for the hard work you put in and to all the people who contributed.

Default Rooting Kindle Fire HD

Inksaver, many thanks for your detailed description of the procedure. When I followed it correctly (which I didn't the first couple of times) it worked a treat.

I am shortly going to try your Guide to Installing Apps on Incompatible Devices and imagine it will work just as easily.

A question if I may as a fellow UK user of the Fire HD:

If I manage to find a way of updating to Jelly Bean I assume that this will wipe all user data as I found with my Motorola Xoom. This is not necessarily a problem but I would miss the actual Kindle application as it has more and useful features than the standard download for other devices.
Do you have any thoughts or guidance on this.
Many thanks,
Philip

Default Super slow after boot solved!

Ok even though this guide stated that if you are on version 7.2.3, you don't need to run rootqemu. Bat method, that was not true in my case. After running through the runme phase in cmnd prompt, choosing normal root, and letting the process finish and reboot, my device was ridiculously slow, and not rooted might I add. Here's the trick though, immediately after that process finishes, you need to run the Rootqemu method also. But when you try to run Rootqemu.bat by right clicking and running as administrator, it doesn't recognize the device. What I had to do was left click on ONLY the folder that contained the Rootqemu files, and while only that folder is highlighted, you hold down the shift key and right click on the folder. Then you are going to click on "run command prompt here". Once the command prompt opens, you are going to type Rootqemu.bat and press enter. Then you can press 1 to root, let the program run through its few stages, and after it reboots several times and finishes it's process, voila no more lag, and you should be finally rooted. Also after that process, download a program called Kindlefree. It's an absolutely amazing, and simple way to install all the essential Google apps "aka" Gapps to your rooted Kindle fire hd. I hope this helps everyone like it did me!

cant establish a reliable data connection to the server? i followed these instructions whats wrong? i have kindle fire hd 7.2.3 ver.
Copy the Google Services Framework, Vending, and the Google Play Store APK files to your tablet’s internal SD card.
On your tablet, launch ES File Explorer.
Head on to Settings > Root settings > Root explorer. Enable the “Root explorer” option and confirm the action when prompted.
Tap the Allow button on the pop-up screen to grant root access to ES File Explorer.
Enable “Up to Root” and “Mount File System”. After enabling both, close the Settings option and return to the main screen of ES File Explorer.
Navigate to where you copied the files mentioned in step 1.
Tap on the GoogleServicesFramework.apk file to install it on your tablet.
Once installation is complete, long press on the Vending.apk file and select Copy.
Press the Up button located on the top of the screen until you see folders named acct and cache.
Look for the /settings/app folder. Open the folder and paste the Vending.apk file in it.
After copying, long press on the Vending.apk file. Click on Properties then click Change. Make the following changes to the file permissions:
User: Read, Write
Group: Read
Other: Read
Tap on the Vending.apk file file once again to start installing it. You will have the Android Market app after the installation.
Exit the ES File Explorer and launch the Android Market found on the apps menu.
Set up Android Market by providing your Google account details.

Everything worked fine until I typed "stuff\adb devices" into the administrator cmd. It did the whole daemon thing but under "List of devices attached" there was nothing.

I believe that I correctly created the adb_usb.ini file in the .android folder.

I have read through the replies and can't seem to find one that helps, let me know if you have any ideas

I won a Kindle Fire HD in a competition and I think I want to root it. I would love to change the launcher and use some of the apps in the Play Store. I am fairly confident when using the computer and I have already rooted and flashed my HTC Wildfire. Though I am not going to flash my kindle, I am worried about the OTA updates.

So I have a couple of questions:

I know people are saying use Droid Wall to stop the OTA updates. Since we haven't had a new update, how can we be sure it works? If it doesn't, what would happen to my Kindle? I do not want to brick it.

Also, say a new update comes out and I do want to update, will the procedure of just clicking update be alright? I know it would cancel out the root, which I would imagine I would be fine with (since I would want to update). Or is there any uprooting steps I would have to do before I click update?

Thanks,

Lewis

Super guidelines. Worked like a dream on my KFHD 7. Kindle Play is up and running. But a problem. I've installed Kindle Play Movies apparently successfully, but it won't run. Opening it results in a 'pink' screen for a second, but nothing else. The app then shuts down. I can't find any reference to this problem - has anyone else experienced it?

Successfully rooted my Kindle 7.2.3 on Windows 8 x64, thx a lot!

To make the guide even more bullet (noob) proof, you could add the following hints:
  • To install ADB drivers on Windows 8, you have to allow installation of unsigned drivers -> LINK
  • To install ES File Explorer without Amazon account (or with non-US country settings), download the apk directly from the EStrongs website. Download with your Kindle web browser to have it show up in your download history. See LINK

Also, I *think* that installation of GoogleServicesFramework.apk failed for me first (or I might have just forgotten to perform the required step?).
I only noticed when the login to 'Market' would ALWAYS fail with the 'can't establish a reliable connection to the server.' message (for like 10 times). I then noticed the missing GoogleServicesFramework in system/app, copied it there, fixed the permissions, and installed. (I might have restarted the device after that). Login to 'Market' and 'Google Play' installation went fine afterwards.

One more question - why did you choose to not include GoogleLoginService.apk and AccountAndSyncSettings.apk that are mentioned in some other guides on installing the app store. I guess they are not required, but are there any downsides to not installing them?

thx again for your work!

Default How to root kindle fire hd with permission problems

Been having a hard time trying to root my Kindle Fire HD with error message : Permission Denied.

The secret to getting it to go through without any permission problems is to ensure your adb.exe is set to have administrative rights!

So right click on it and under "compatibility" tab, check "Run this program as an administrator".

This should solve all those with permission problem rooting!

I've come across a problem that no-one else seems to have had!

When I run RunMe, my Kindle demands a password. I don't remember setting up any sort of encryption and have tried all the passwords I can think of to no avail. Entering nothing and just pressing Restore completes the rest of the process but doesn't root.

Any ideas?

I need some help getting my Kindle Fire to be able to play other apps and games. I cannot afford to really test any of them because they may brick my system and I can't get another. Everyone seemed to say that you are reliable so I just wanted to ask for your help. I have a Kindle Fire 2 and I didn't see any post on it.

That sounds like you had the option to hide extensions for known file types on in the Windows Explorer. I have no idea why they set that as default but my impression is that's always a bad thing and an easy way to catch viruses!

I used your protocol and it worked just great. Since then I have gone to Win 8 and gave it a try with that partly because I had more launchers than I needed and this seemed to be the only way to resolve that. Beyond a problem setting up the drivers on Win 8 which I resolved I did something stupid towards the end and bricking my toy - it was during the installation of the Play Store and as usual I was having problems connecting to the server. Stupidly I powered down my Fire at this point and it came back with a a screen which has a red triangle, a message that it isn't able to boot and try setting to factory defaults which I have done n times with no joy.
I would love to be able to restore it. I don't believe it is Win 8 related and certainly nothing to do with your procedure. I wondered if you have any thoughts.

Many many thanks for such a great tutorial, I guess I have to go down as a sub noob. I am in the UK.

Luckcactus many thanks for your response. I don't know what the battery status is. I discharged it overnight and then charged for a couple of hours this morning before retrying. I will leave it on charge for a few hours now and try again.

Smile Awesome!!

Thank you so much! Absolutely foolproof! I did have the same issues I've seen mentioned where the device was not listed in command prompt under list of devices attached. Uninstalled and re installed drivers (a couple times) and it finally worked. Third times a charm, I guess. But that was probably because i had attempted a "one step rooting program" first. Which, btw, did NOT work! Anyway, after undoing what I had previously started, this worked perfectly!

No I just need to figure out what to do with it now that it is rooted...looking for a forum on all the possibilities (for the beginner) as I type.

Thank you again!!

Mine asked for this, but I just clicked "Restore My Data" and it continued on without a hitch.

lol..phew.i thought i was already stuck..

does the process take a long time before it's finished?

edit:
i'd plan to close the cmd and reboot my kindle after an hour and a half,good thing nothing happened.

i think the problem is that when i clicked "restore my data", it doesn't reboot.

Default kindle fire hd 7 rooting problems

@InkSaver

Hi there...I own a Kindle Fire HD 7 and have firmware 7.3.0. I was reading through some forums and someone said this method works for rooting 7.3.0. I followed the steps and could not get it to work. I reset the kindle to factory settings and tried again but it doesn't work. It doesn't get past step 3...it says "find is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file". Please help if you know of this issue. I have spent hours trying to root this kindle and it's getting really frustrated. Thanks for your help.

After running through the runme phase in cmnd prompt, choosing normal root, and letting the process finish and reboot, my device was ridiculously slow, and not rooted might I add. Here's the trick though, immediately after that process finishes, you need to run the Rootqemu method also. But when you try to run Rootqemu.bat by right clicking and running as administrator, it doesn't recognize the device. What I had to do was left click on ONLY the folder that contained the Rootqemu files, and while only that folder is highlighted, you hold down the shift key and right click on the folder. Then you are going to click on "run command prompt here". Once the command prompt opens, you are going to type Rootqemu.bat and press enter. Then you can press 1 to root, let the program run through its few stages, and after it reboots several times and finishes it's process, voila no more lag, and you should be finally rooted. Also after that process, download a program called Kindlefree. It's an absolutely amazing, and simple way to install all the essential Google apps "aka" Gapps to your rooted Kindle fire hd. I hope this helps everyone like it did me!
Thanks for this. I lost my root and the initial method didn't work. Got as far as the slow, laggy restart but couldn't get past it.

Using your steps, I am now rooted again and running nicely. Thanks

Any ideas?


I ran into this too and found out that you just use your Amazon password and it works. Don't ask me why, but it does. I found this info on one of the XDA forums.

Default Root Version 7.3.1

Being a noob, and never rooted the device before, I wanted to see if anyone has successfully done this tutorial on a Kindle with version 7.3.1. Not sure if I came across an error if it would be me or the fact that it's the new version. Please let me know.

Hi, I have followed your step by guide so far and got to Section 4 (17,18,19), the problem is when I type in my IP address etc. it continually comes up 'Error, cannot find the server' I have checked the IP as stated using ipconfig, am I typing in the wrong server info?

Thank you very much for this post, Inksaver, it works AAA+++
My second time to root, because I had some days ago an automatic update to Version 8.3.1
I had to run the RunMe and then the RootQemu.bat as described in your guide.
I had the file Amazon Device Client Platform (ADCP), in Black list of DroidWall.
But the automatic update just installed.
Is there any way to cancel the automatic Version updates?
Thanks, best regards.

About the automatic updates, I did a search and I found that all we need is to disable the OTA (over the air) update security.
Here is the link:
How To Disable Automatic Updates on the Kindle Fire HD
I did it already. Hope it works this time.
Thanks

just so people are aware ES File Explorer has updated and is different from the instructions given but if you know how to use it then it shouldn't be hard to figure out and if your new to this all then maybe get the one in the OP (if there is a link there for it)

can i just add that the method for blocking the OTA updates that you link too did not work for me****** so (dont know about others) so im off to find a different tut to see if i can understand it lol*******
but again thanks for your tut, because of you i rooted my HD the first time and it was easy to reroot it using a simple tool and took 5 minutes but im giving you the thanks because it was your tut that made me understand what everyone was talking about and for that im happy

*******EDIT:
had a look around and there is another way to block it but it also blocks whispersinc and some people need/use it so with a bit more looking around i see that many people say using droid wall is a good way and you need to just block everything apart from apps that you want to connect to the internet like games and internet and stuff so i have once again used droidwall and i have just blocked everything amazon side (and a few others that i use but dont think need to connect)

EDIT 2:
i have just seen the post by Roy Smith and i might have a look into doing it that way
screw it i have used both ways lol

List of devices attached

But there isnt any numbers below. I have two entries on device manager and it shows in windows explorer as a drive

If I carry on and run RunMe and select option 1 it just seems to hang on "Checking if I should run in normal mode or special Sony Mode. Please connect your device with USB-Debugging enabled now"

Any ideas?


I'm have the same problem and I have the adb_usb.ini file. what do i do? im also using vista could that be a problem?
