Hello,
I think I just bricked my Kindle Fire HD 2013 KFSOWI running 11.3.2.1.

Here's what I did
- solder a fastboot cable
- download the root utility from this page:

https://

google.

(kyleberry.graphics)

- put kindle into fastboot mode

the kindle showed :

Code:
Start downloading
writing boot...done

Good timing, a restore utility was just released, haven't checked out the script for it yet, but should work, just put it into fastboot and run the utility. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2685090

Root worked perfectly with the 11.3.2.1-root_v2.0 package from kfsowi tools. took a while, approx. 20 minutes.
