It was the first thing I did with mine. I got mine first month it came out so lots of development hadn't been done yet but it came along quick. Thing I hate about stock is that everytime amazon updates (every 2-3 months it seems) it breaks root so another way to root has to be found. That is enough for me to just stay off stock completely.

i know the advantages of having root on our phones but what is the advantage on the KF? I side load a launcher and can use it as a tablet or as the reader.

It gives you access to google play store which gives you access to more apps. Also needed if you want to install a recovery and try different roms.
