Anyone know if its possible to flash back to an older version, say 10.2.3? For the life of me, I cannot regain root on the latest update. Every tool I try keeps giving me "permission denied". I even tried some older methods like z4root. Im going crazy here.

Edit: Nevermind, I got it! Rooted Version 10.2.4

So have two new Kindles with version 10.2.4 and this did not work... After looking through the various .bat and .sh the commands are not much different than what is typed via adb... Can anyone shed light on what is actually getting the root done?

P.S. I had one of the devices root when I first opened it (it was on version 10.2.1) and made the mistake of connecting to the internet before turning off the auto system updates and it freekin updated on my to version 10.2.4 removing root.

New to Kindle, relatively new to Android, but as to why they did it, pretty simple, the carousel (especially the recommended apps/books/media you see unless the feature turned off) all lead to Amazon's infrastructure. If you buy something through Amazon, the profit is mostly theirs (minus author/developer cut obviously).

If you were using Google Play/other app store/isohunt for APKs, Amazon would see no money. Given the profit margin (or possible loss, depending on model and price it was sold at!) on these devices, they are banking on making money from you with future purchases.

That it is how it seems to me at least, sure others will chirp in should I have mis-read the situation.

(Happily side loading apps, Calibre for my e-book collection, but not yet rooted my Kindle Fire (2nd Gen).)

Must update my sig sometime.

Spot on. The Kindle Fire for most people is a media consumption device, not a tablet. I don't mind it, and for 99 it was a steal.

I finally got it rooted... My daughter didn't like Amazon's app store and I'm too lazy to side load the 50 apps and games she will want... The device runs great and now looks like a "regular" tablet. :beer:
