I have setup the KF First Aide as per the excellent instructions, No SDK installed.
When i run KF First Aide I run option 6 the first time I get:

* server not running *
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *

List of devices attached
D025A0A024110HS8 Device
If You See A Number Before Device,
Then It Looks Like ADB is Enabled!

When i try and run a backup, option 11:
We Are Now Waking Up ADB
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *

We Are Now Executing The Backup, Please Wait......

The system cannot find the path specified.
error: device offline
error: device offline
error: device offline
error: device offline
The Backup Process Has Completed. Please Make A
Copy Of The Backup From The Backup Folder to A CD

The ADB options displays device offline, including the test.

So it appears to make a connection initially, then goes offline.

Any ideas?
Many thanks
Ian

evo_zero,

Ian, thank you for taking the time to post the detailed error, we do appreciate it. We are patching the software which will have this problem resolved as well as resolving several other issues. The update will be available tomorrow at 12pm PST GMT -8, maybe before that time.

I would like to thank everyone for there support and patience while we iron out the bugs in the Beta copy.

It sounds great! Thanks!. And I suggest you to take a break sometime. Too many days in a row sleeping only a few hours... Thanks for all your effort

1. Downgrade the software
2. Immediately patch OTA after the downgrade
3. Immediately backup after the downgrade and patch

As user Krsmqn stated "There are working on the issue and will have it resolved soon".

Rather than launch one feature at a time, we decided to launch a bunch of upgrades together, the updated package will have all the above feature and 8 new features. The launch date is 02/03/2013 after 12pm PST GMT -8.

Remember, you are posting comments in the Kindle Fire First Aide thread which is meant for Kindle Fire First Aide feedback, trouble reporting, errors and solutions around our software.

Sorry if I didn't make this plain, Chris - my intent was to try to help solve the problem in your tool - otherwise I'd just keep doing everything manually.

The thing I noticed with the manual attempt was that ADB was blocked - I had to give it permission. I didn't have that indication when I ran the batch file.

Why do we want to downgrade to 8.1.3?

Good luck.

Update
To All-

We are uploading the updates at the moment, since each upload is about 1GB, it is taking longer than expected. We will post the new software as soon as possible.

So.... What are the odds that we will one day be able to update directly from our KF's? Or to some extent.

Krsmqn,

When you have time download the latest version and try the following functions:

1. Backup Local
2. Backup Remote
3. Disable OTA

We have loaned out all our Kindle to customers in need and did not have anything to test. We did completely revise the code on these two functions. If the script error, please provide a screen shot. The new code is really easy to tweak as long as we can see the errors.

Thanks!
