I like that! Have you used the latests version to Backup your Kindle? Please backup the Kindle using the 2 different methods. What did you finally do to be able to resolve your issue? Did you move all the backup images to C:\KFFirstAide\KindleBackup?
Did you use our software to install Google Apps?
Issue was resolved by reinstalling back to 7.2.3 then Gapps both with KFFirstAide. This was with one of last night's versions, so I had to fill in some gaps manually. I'll install the Bravia & audio enhancements later, as neither are high on me list.
This looks like a great tool. I have not been able to get it to root my device, though, and figure there must be something obvious that I am doing wrong. I am on firmware version 8.1.4; 8.9" device. My PC is running Windows 7.
I have adb installed and working. I have installed the KF First Aide tool in accordance with the instructions. My drivers appear to be installed correctly. I am running the runme.bat file as admin.
When I get into the tool and run option 11, adb is definitely detecting my device.
When I run root method 1, I get the following:
[Message saying prepping for automated install and then the following:]
rm failed for /data/local/tmp, Permission denied
Link failed File exists
[Message that my kindle is being rebooted (and my kindle in fact does reboot); then I get:]
/system/bin/sh: cannot create nul: Read only file system
/system/bin/sh: cannot create /data/local.prop: Permission denied
[Message saying that my kindle is rebooting and that it will look unusual; and my kindle in fact reboots. Then it says:]
** We Are Now Testing To See If We Have The Proper Access. **
The system cannot find the file specified.
[Then the command box sits there forever until I shut it down.]
I have tried Root Method 2, and while that also appears to go through reboots, etc., that also ends in some sort of error. I can give the specific messages from that method as well if helpful. Any thoughts? Again, thanks for any help.
This thread is becoming the "Manhattan Project for Kindle Fires"! It's very exciting to read/watch the real-time evolution of a super-app!
[Unfortunately this week I am so tied up with my own (boring) project, that I can't take the time to run this growing Kindle-upgrade-machine on my poor KFTT. . . (I have to discipline myself to stop jumping back and following each development on this thread! --it's almost like a suspense novel. . .(well maybe that is a bit much!) . . . But as a KFTT user I do want to know! "will the menu get fixed?" "will the added functionality for 64bit work as well as 32bit?". . . ."and what about those poor mac users with KFTT?"
I hope to get caught up soon so that I can steal some time to run my KFTT through these new versions . . . but I bet that by the time I do, the "runme.bat" will be about 90% different from todays!
THANKS Prokennexusa & ALL OF YOU who are testing and fixing and pushing this forward
-- it is like nothing I have seen in Android for any other device
-- and given that most KFTT users are not heavy-tech folks, by the time this is done it will make a real difference to a great many of (us)!
Thank you very much for the Feedback, we give the end user the option to replace the Lock Screen and since Magic Locker has some really cool themes we thought why not, if the end user wants something different then they can have it. We use Magic Locker on our Kindles.
The errors is usually caused by one of a few common issues:
1. You extracted the package to the C:\KFFirstAide folder and created a second folder within the main folder. There should be one folder it must be named C:\KFFirstAide. Please move all the contents of the second folder to C:\KFFirstAide then delete the second folder.
2. You extracted the folder and left the number at the end, so if the folder is C:\KFFirstAide32 or C:\KFFirstAide64 the process will fail. The name of the folder should be C:\KFFirstAide. Please remove the 32 or 64 at the end of the folder name.
3. You are missing the Environment Variable of C:\KFFirstAide. Please add C:\KFFirstAide to the Environment Variable in the Microsoft Windows PATH Statement.
4. You have the Android SDK Installed - remove the SDK
When you cleared up the issues then download the latest version of our Software 02/17/2013 at 12:32pm the current version is Rev 31:
Kindle Fire First Aide Revision 31 Major Release - Download the complete package:
These two services are for large external TV's and loudspeakers. The Kindle can now be used to decode high end audio and video paths. Here is a small explanation of the two services. These services slightly improve music through headphones or video through the 7" display - the Bravia Engine is running on the HDMI Port and xLoud is running on the mini jack. So if you connect the Kindle to external Video or Audio you will notice much higher clarity and sharper picture when you plug the Kindle into a high end audio or video system.
FINALLY, the Kindle can be used for high end audio and video reproduction.
BRAVIA typifies what Sony television stands for - the best resolution, the best audio, fully digital and of course the best picture, driven by BRAVIA Engine Picture Enhancement System.
The BRAVIA range offers the perfect combination of cutting edge technology and contemporary free flowing design BRAVIA Breakthrough Technology
BRAVIA engine is what makes a Sony BRAVIA totally unique. But what is BRAVIA Engine - In short it is a suite of image processing technologies that act as a total digital processing studio. It works to improve the image quality from any signal. As a result, you will see clearer, sharper and more natural images especially relevant when watching standard definition or a Freeview signal
In Addition to the standard BRAVIA engine, there are 2 enhanced versions available BRAVIA Engine EX
BRAVIA Engine EX: Also has further noise reduction, super enhanced contrast and advanced natural colour. It also features Digital Reality Creation (DRC), which up-scales standard definition inputs by quadrupling the number of pixels in the image source to create HD picture quality BRAVIA Engine Pro
BRAVIA Engine Pro: Is the highest form of BRAVIA Engine. In addition to the benefits of BRAVIA Engine EX, BRAVIA Engine Pro features advanced Digital Reality Creation (DRC) which further enhances high definition inputs such as from Sky HD, to give clearer and sharper HD images Motionflow +100Hz
Conventional LCD Televisions show 50 pictures, or frames, a second (50Hz). Sony's unique Motionflow +100Hz system, which is introduced with the new D-series, doubles the amount of pictures shown to 100 per second (100Hz).
Standard 100Hz Technology can create motion blur or a judder in the picture, however Sony's unique Motionflow +100Hz system combats and eliminates this by intelligently manufacturing the additional frames rather than just repeating them Dynamic Contrast
Dynamic Contrast is the maximum amount of difference between black and white, where as Standard Contrast is the contrast visible on the screen at any one time. A high number is impressive, but it is essential not to forget about the greys in the middle - and that's where Sony is unique with Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE). A unique Sony Algoritm (part of ACE) ensures the subtle shades of grey also remain. BRAVIA Theatre Sync
All New BRAVIA will feature BRAVIA Theatre Sync, with a single touch of a button; you will be able to control your entire home entertainment system. Essentially it will automatically turn on all components, change input and get sound thus eliminating the requirement for numerous remote controls Live Colour Creation
Live Colour Creation combines circuitry, backlight and a colour filter to create a picture which is more realistic and a natural fit to the human eye, the result is deeper greens and deeper reds. The consumer benefit is that you can see 30% more colours with "Live Colour Creation".
Sony xLoud Sound Mobile is a sound engine that change the output values of your phone. It includes sound libraries and a software equalizer for the best audio experiance! The best quality is produced in cooperation with Beats Audio! This enanchement can work with the standards desireHD’s enanchements in music box! So it can work with beats audio for an exclusive music and movie experiance!

I agree, lol, I think this tool could have gotten the Apollo 13 astronauts home in half the time, so long they knew which end of my cable to connect first, LOL... Ok, one of us is exaggerating a little and its not you...
High Quality is never an accident.
It is always the result of excellent intention, intelligent direction, sincere effort and skillful execution.
It represents the wisest choice of many alternatives! ~ William A. Foster ~ Edited by ME!

We stock the SkOrPn cables. What do you need to do to the Kindle? Do you have a broken Bootloader? If yes, you indeed need a Factory USB Cable, otherwise our software is able to boot a healthy Bootloader into Fastboot.
