    Is it possible to root a kindle running 6.3.1? If so what method/ link/instructions should I follow?

    Using linux ubuntu by the way... in case it makes a difference.
    Thanks.

    Thanks,

    If anyone has any tips on getting this thing rooted with linux please let me know. Tried the 6.2 root videos last night and no luck.

    If you have twrp you're fine. Just install your rom of choice. Sounds like he writes the kf but make sure you do that too prior to flashing.

    Or wait. If it goes into twrp can you boot into system from there? What happens if you try that?
