Yes, I agree the problem is defiantly not the code especially since you are unable to drop to command and execute the commands at the Windows prompt.

Lets have you flush the Temp directory, do the following:

Code:
adb shell su -c "cd /data/local/tmp/; rm *"
Then reboot the Kindle.

That is very helpful, can you try Option 21 and pay attention to the Kindle, at one point the Kindle will need you to click Restore. Let us know how Option 21 works.

I am having the same "Permission denied" errors as the others using the latest revision's options 20 & 21 (output attached).

Here are my environment details.
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Kindle Fire HD 7" 7.2.3
- Reset to factory defaults
- ADB enabled
I'm willing to create a WebEx session and conference call, if that'll help with troubleshooting.

I can also commit to donating to the project or a charity :)

Make sure "Allow installation of external programs" is on Under More+ Device.

PLEASE REMOVE THE ANDROID SDK IF YOU HAVE IT INSTALLED.

If Root fails, unplug the Kindle from USB, reboot the Kindle and the PC, wait 3 minutes for everything to stabilize. Then plug the Kindle back into USB, wait 2 minutes. Then toggle Enable ADB Off and On found under More + Security, wait 1 minute then launch Kindle Fire First Aide, select Option 20. If Root fails again, go back to the Kindle toggle Enable ADB Off and On found under More + Security, wait 1 minute then try Option 21. If Root Fails, close Kindle Fire First Aide and Unplug the Kindle reboot the Kindle and the PC, wait 3 minutes for everything to stabilize. Check Enable ADB is ON found under More + Security and the Launch Kindle Fire First Aide and try Option 21 again, if it fails toggle Enable ADB Off and On found under More + Security, wait 1 and run Option 21 again.

If Root fails, post the output and we will begin to look at driver or other problems with the Kindle.

The information you posted was very helpful. We changed the Root timing which is critical for successful Root. This version we had a chance to test it on 4 different Kindles today, so if this fails we can safely conclude you have a problem with either a driver or conflicting program like Norton Internet Security.

This is Software Version 4.1.42-Beta The RunMe is Dated 02/19/2013 at 15:45:

Microsoft Windows Kindle Fire First Aide Universal Version 4.1.42-Beta: KFFirstAide.zip

Microsoft Windows Kindle Fire First Aide 32-bit Version 4.1.42-Beta: KFFirstAide32.zip

Microsoft Windows Kindle Fire First Aide 64-bit Version 4.1.42-Beta: KFFirstAide64.zip

Please unzip the above packages to C:\KFFirstAide make sure the RunMe.bat is Dated 02/19/2013 at 15:45. Before running the software, make sure you do not have another folder inside C:\KFFirstAide named KFFirstAide32, KFFirstAide64 or KFFirstAide. After you Unzip the software you should only have one folder named C:\KFFirstAide, this is critical to proper operation.

Make sure you have a Environment Variable in the Microsoft Windows PATH Statement of C:\KFFirstAide otherwise you will see many 'unable to find ???package???.apk' messages.

Finally, make sure you are running the latests version of Java SE Development Kit 7u13

AmrBanawan,

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have the damn SDK installed, I could kill Google for making this software public! 99.999999999999999% of the users do NOT under any condition require the SDK never never never.

We thought we were going crazy here, with the unexplained output.

Remove the SDK or Disable C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\Platform-tools by renaming platform-tools to platform-tools-old.

If you do not have the SDK installed, which I believe you do, then somewhere you have another version of adb running. Search your PC for adb.exe - there should only be one copy, our copy.

This explains all the issues we have been having with the output and erroneous messages. You see, what is happeneing when our software calls ADB to wake up, it is also waking up the other copy of ADB causing a port conflict. ADB is not smart enough to understand the error, so it thinks there is a problem with ADB is posts the output of "adb server is out of date. killing...".

Once you fix the conflicting ADB Problem, everything will run MUCH better since during this conflict I'll bet only 50% of the intended packages were ever sent to the Kindle, thus the Kindle is probably reacting weird or a little slow. This is due to the fact only one half of the packages ever made it to the Kindle.

We are stepping out for a couple of hours. Please fix the conflict and test the functions again.

Make sure "Allow installation of external programs" is on Under More+ Device.

If Root fails, unplug the Kindle from USB, reboot the Kindle and the PC, wait 3 minutes for everything to stabilize. Then plug the Kindle back into USB, wait 2 minutes. Then toggle Enable ADB Off and On found under More + Security, wait 1 minute then launch Kindle Fire First Aide, select Option 20. If Root fails again, go back to the Kindle toggle Enable ADB Off and On found under More + Security, wait 1 minute then try Option 21. If Root Fails, close Kindle Fire First Aide and Unplug the Kindle reboot the Kindle and the PC, wait 3 minutes for everything to stabilize. Check Enable ADB is ON found under More + Security and the Launch Kindle Fire First Aide and try Option 21 again, if it fails toggle Enable ADB Off and On found under More + Security, wait 1 and run Option 21 again.

Is it possible to do with with Go launcher HD activated? I tried using another theme, the Android 4 Free, and the lost robot music, and it seems to be lagging a lot when I turn off and on the screen to see the theme. Is it because I have these two applications running at the same time. Do I need to choose between the two?
