odd, the bin4ary root script is throwing a ton of permission denied errors over here, what the heck.
I can access adb shell just fine, i don't remember having any issues when I initially rooted this thing back around Christmas. Really should have killed OTA updates, shame on me.

any advice?

Confirmed, just re-rooted again tonight. I've been de-rooted twice now, once from a 10.2.5 update and then again from a 10.2.6 update (even with renaming otacerts.zip). Are there any other methods that can be used to disable the OTA updates? I really don't want to go through this setup again.

Also for anyone having errors, really, the only thing you can do is just run it over and over, i ran bin4ry's root so many times I lost count until it eventually worked, qemu root is good too.

Rooted 10.2.6
I got the 10.2.6 update. I did a factory reset after the update. Went through Kindle setup signing only into my Amazon account, so I had a clean Kindle, turned on ADB and "install applications from unkown sources". Plugged the Kindle into USB and made sure it connected with no errors. Then I opened a command prompt window with administrator privileges on Windows 7. Ran the bin4ary bat file to root and it went absolutely flawlessly with no errors at all.

I live on the edge - I don't turn off software updates, because I can always use fastboot to rollback to a previous known good version thanks to the info on this forum

I don't know if running the command prompt window as administrator solves the permission denied problems or not. Also, my bat file and support files are in my own user directory in Windows 7, so I know I have full permissions on those files as well.
