Me too! Success first time here, thanks very much fmkilo.

From a 10.2.6 factory install, I used bin4ry's root script - took a few goes to get it going right (installed SDK and plugged in, device showed as "Kindle"; then installed Kindle HD ADB driver and device shows up as Android Composite ADB Device) and I had to kill the adb.exe process which the SDK installed and had running in the background. I DIDN'T need to elevate UAC privileges; indeed if I did that I just got path errors with the script. Local user privileges are all it needs, it seems.

I then used the cordless (wireless) APK install method, I thought it hadn't worked as the device booted, but I kept on seeing brief flashes of the Kindle bootscreen on top of the UI (which did respond, although very laggily). Seems this was just part of the rooting though as I left it for a minute or two and eventually the MS-DOS prompt reported success. The KF2 rebooted, and I got the blue logo bootscreen as expected. The device then booted into stock ROM perfectly.

My PC then took a little bit longer than usual for the device to show up again as an Android Composite ADB device, but it did happen eventually (a couple of minutes after booting).
January 2011 onwards: TOUCH PRO 2! Woohoo!

Please help. Used the one-click to install, had issues with my computer finding the Kindle. I restarted the Kindle, however, now the Kindle immediately shuts down when I attach any USB cable (wall cord, factory USB, or USB). I am able to power up only when the USB cable is not attached to the Kindle. Has anyone seen this before? What can I do to fix this?

Thank for your help.

having a issue rooting my KF2.
Installed -Bin4ry's Root and seemed to do ok
I now have a superuser icon on my kindle
but when installing -QemuRoot
I get errors saying its a read only disk error writing to SD card

I went through and tried several times and had the same issue.
i am assuming its rooted because the icon is there.
but I cant go to the amazon app store and download root checker because i have a bad esn

Default Wut?

This might be the most pathetically coded batch file I have ever seen. First of all, linux, doesn't interpret 'backslashes' as paths, second of all moutning system should be mount -o remount,rw -t ext4 /system /system, then do the same for sdcard. Seriously, this thing could be a deathtrap.
