I am still getting the "Permission denied" error with the /data/local.prop step. Output from options 20 & 21 are attached. I've also tried manually running the commands through the shell, with the same result. That output is also attached.

Here are some troubleshooting steps I've tried.
- Used the latest revision
- Used 64-bit and Universal versions
- Updated to the latest Java (output attached)
- Copied Android SDK's adb.exe and related files from platform-tools

To be clear, I don't have the SDK installed. I simply extracted the files from its zip as a last test.

I've also tried other root scripts, such as QEMU and Bin4ry with the same problem.

So I'm assuming the problem is either with my Kindle (which is five days old from a Best Buy) or my computer. Either way, I'm assuming I'm stuck until the local.prop file can be modified.

There are two directions for your solution, first use the latest version of our software and use Option 31, this will fix an permissions and anomalies. After this reboot the Kindle, how is it performing now? If no improvement, let see what process is hanging the Kindle. Go to Google Play Store, download and install:

Task Manager from Houmiak

Open the Task Manager from Houmiak and look for the process that is taking a high percent of CPU process. Once you find the culprit please post it here and we will supply you a fix.

Here we go the latest version of our software: This is Software Version 4.1.43-Beta The RunMe is Dated 02/19/2013 at 22:15:

Microsoft Windows Kindle Fire First Aide Universal Version 4.1.43-Beta: KFFirstAide.zip

Microsoft Windows Kindle Fire First Aide 32-bit Version 4.1.43-Beta: KFFirstAide32.zip

Microsoft Windows Kindle Fire First Aide 64-bit Version 4.1.43-Beta: KFFirstAide64.zip

Please unzip the above packages to C:\KFFirstAide make sure the RunMe.bat is Dated 02/19/2013 at 22:15. 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. Also, if you see an ADB message alerting the following "adb server is out of date. killing.." then make sure you do not have another version of ADB or the Android SDK on your computer.

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

Thank you to EVERYONE for working as a team to make this software a better product. We will never forget the people who have made this product successful.

My MagicLocker Lockscreen also lags a lot and I don't have a custom launcher

I fixed the permissions etc. and there is no program running that uses a lot of CPU resources.

Hi, I used your toolkit to root and load the Google apps stuff you put on there. Afterwards, I lost most of all the major standard Amazon apps for email, silk web browser, photos, music, video, etc. Disappointed as the tool did not mention that it would do this? Also the bootup lock screen no longer shows the Amazon Ads but instead shows your screen pictures.

Before I applied the change to add the Google Apps stuff, I did make a complete system backup using your Kindlebackup menu selection.
It saved all the image (.img) files into my PC Kindlebackup folder. But when I try to restore the images with your option 25 on the toolkit menu, after getting the HD 8.9 tablet into fastboot mode (showing on its screen), the fastboot commands on the PC just sit there forever saying "waiting for device"...
Do I need a fastboot cable for my HD 8.9 32GB tablet? It does reboot to the fastboot screen but just does not accept nor respond to any fastboot commands. My adb commands work 100% fine. Fastboot does not work, any ideas how to fix this? I tried setting up on a totally different PC following all your instructions exactly. Still fastboot commands are not recognized by the device as it does not respond.
I tried loading your adb windows drivers on my Windows 8 Pro PC's but it always fails to install. I loaded some other amazon windows ADB drivers I got from some place else so I am not sure if the drivers are the problem or do I need a fastboot cable? What drivers are people using for Windows 8 Pro OS? Can someone post a link where to download the proper drivers and I will try it out again. But something tells me I already have the correct drivers installed (Android Composite ADB driver v1.2.0 the driver version says). Is this correct version to be using?
If I cannot restore my original system images, then please tell me what was done that removed my Amazon store apps? I cannot watch free TV, music, videos from my Amazon Prime account any longer!

n81acc,

You are almost there, you did not let the software run completely. Run Option 21 again, we know the first exploit will fail, fine. Press any Key to Continue, at that point press any key and let the software try the second exploit.

Give me the output once you let the software run to the end.

Infobits,

You have not lost a thing from Amazon, we do not remove anything. Please go back into the Apps, look for an icon named "Home", click on that icon and wala, there is all your Amazon stuff.

We would NEVER remove anything from Amazon, that would defeat the whole idea on what we are trying to accomplish.

By the way, the "screen pictures" are not our Pictures, they are the ones that are included with the Kindle, they are Amazon's.

Exclamation Software Version 4.1.43-Beta The RunMe is Dated 02/19/2013 at 22:15

dekor8tor,

Please go and download the latest copy, for some reason you are still using the older version. We are getting several people having sucess with the Root method, so we know Option 21 does work. Maybe you extracted the new version inside the old version so may be you have a second folder named KFFirstAide inside of C:\KFFirstAide?

Please try to download and extract a new copy of our software, you will know you have the new version when you see a file named "isroot" inside C:\KFFirstAide. Once you see this file, launch our software, select Option 21 when you see the first Exploit fail, press any key to continue let the software continue.

When the our software asks you to refer to the Kindle display and click on Restore please do this, the software will wrap up the Root process and you will have Root!

Here we go the latest version of our software: This is Software Version 4.1.43-Beta The RunMe is Dated 02/19/2013 at 22:15:

Microsoft Windows Kindle Fire First Aide Universal Version 4.1.43-Beta: KFFirstAide.zip

Microsoft Windows Kindle Fire First Aide 32-bit Version 4.1.43-Beta: KFFirstAide32.zip

Microsoft Windows Kindle Fire First Aide 64-bit Version 4.1.43-Beta: KFFirstAide64.zip

Please unzip the above packages to C:\KFFirstAide make sure the RunMe.bat is Dated 02/19/2013 at 22:15. 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. Also, if you see an ADB message alerting the following "adb server is out of date. killing.." then make sure you do not have another version of ADB or the Android SDK on your computer.

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

Random Username,

That is the problem, you are not running a custom Launcher. Give us an hour maybe two and we will add a custom Launcher to our software. We like Apex Launcher on the Kindle is that fine with you? If yes, we will add this as an option. Give us a couple of hours to add this feature.

Hi, please can you be more specific on where you want me to go back into "Apps". Do you mean go into the Amazon laucher on the top of the screen where it opens up to show the installed apps (in Cloud, and on Device)? There is no such "Home" folder in there.
If you mean in some directory on the system, please tell me exactly where this "Home" directory path is?

I have my system backup images that I want to restore back to (as a last resort) if I cannot straighten out these missing apps. But as I asked about in previous post, any suggestions on how to get my tablet to respond to the fastboot commands? Right now it does not respond to fastboot commands. I even tried to issue the fastboot commands manually to the connected HD 8.9 but just sits there "waiting for device".
All of the adb mode commands are working fine. Just the fastboot commands are not working. How to fix this?

Thank You!
