Final Remarks:
Thank you to everyone for the great time.
I have been quite busy the past couple of months.
I sold my KFHDX and bought a Galaxy Tab Pro sm-t320.
I will still come back to HDX forums and help out as much as possible.
There is still hope for the future of this device. Get cracking .
Here is a link to my toolkit v0.96b source. It is a functional version based on v0.95.

Enjoy and play safe!

This is great! But some are being updated already to 14.3.2.1 update. There is no root yet for this. I'm referring to Apollo.

Once a rooting method is found I can update the utility.

Indeed, judging by the deafness of the section I'd say most people updated and have no root.

This is truly awesome! Thanks so much, though I can't test as I think the wife's Kindle updated.

Yes, but. You can not let it update when you get it. You need to be on version 14.3.1.0 So you need to do a manual update. The download is not listed but still hosted here. Once your updated, root, install supersu, block updates then safestrap. Airplane mode to be safe and avoid an update.

IT WILL DOWNLOAD THE CURRENT UPDATE AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ROOT. Airplane mode to be safe.

hdxposed does not block the update,as it was supposed to ,,everyone that was on it without changing build.prop lost root and updated

That's all I get.

Should maybe point out that despite updating to windows media 11 my tablet also didn't show up as a device on my pc.

make sure you have the drivers installed, mtp and the kindle fire drivers,,plug it in open device manager and select the portable device(which is the mtp) and delete the driver (you may have to unplug and the replug the device) it will say android with a yellow triangle,hit update driver ,select browse my computer for driver software,then select ,let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer,, scroll down and find kindle fire from the list and select it and the adb driver will install,,,,then adb and any of the root utilities should work for you now,as long as you have not taken the new update .

hope that helps

Hi. Thanks for your work on this, but i got auto-updated so none of this works without root.

But i notice you link to the update files... could they be used to manually roll back to a rootable version of amazons firmware?
