Storage Kindle Fire First Aide Revision 4.1.60-Beta for Windows - USB Driver Install

rjay3,

I suspect this is due to a driver issue. What is shown in the Windows Device Manager? Do you see:

Kindle > Android ADB Interface

Portable Devices > Kindle

If no, what do you see in the Windows Device Manager?

Windows 7 64 bits…
Here is an alternative driver you can manually install if the other driver is not working - Unzip it to your Desktop:


https://dl.dropbox.com/u/54456659/usb_driver.zip





Step by Step Guide
  1. Connect USB cable to Kindle Fire.
  2. Go to Devices and Printers.
  3. Double click on Kindle.
  4. Go to Hardware tab.


  1. Select Kindle with yellow exclamation mark, then click on Properties.
  2. Go to Details tab.


7. At Property, choose Hardware Ids.
8. That’s Kindle Fire USB hardware Id that we going to use later.
9. Just leave the property window open.
10. Go to C:\Users\YourUserName\.android folder. If this does not exist you may create one.
12. Open adb_usb.ini with notepad.
13. Key in 0×1949. (don’t copy and paste)
14. Save it
15. Let’s go back to Kindle property window.
16. Go to General tab.
17. Select Update Driver… then.
18. Select Browse my computer for driver software ~ Locate and install driver software manually.
19. Select Browse…, and select the location you extracted the usb_driver
20. When Windows Security prompt, select Install this driver software anyway
21. That is it!

Window Explorer:

BELASCO,

Maybe the software folder had not updated and you may have been downloading partial updates. This would explain the odd output you were posting - this must be the case. The more I thought about it, this makes complete sense!

We have made the new version Windows 7 proof, try it when you are back awake.

BELASCO,

Do not worry I'll figure it out, let me sleep on it, in the mean time download and try the update. I worked on the code for a solid 4 hours and make it Windows 7 proof.

The new package has several lines of redundancy that we would normally not use but this is the Kindle, anything can happen and we want to be ready.

dekor8tor,

You are correct, you do not have Root. when you run Option 21 do you see Restore on the Kindle? Do you click on Restore? Then let the software complete?

We made some important changes to Rev 60, please download and extract the complete package. Be careful to NOT create a second folder inside of C:\KFFirstAide OK? The best poractice is to download the new package to your desktop, use 7-Zip to unzip it, then transfer copy and paste all the files and folders in the desktop package. So when you extract on the desktop you will have a folder named KFFirstAide64 or KFFirstAide32, open this folder, select all the items and choose COPY, then navigate to C:\KFFirstAide and open this folder, then Right Hand Mouse click over the C:\KFFirstAide folder and select Paste. Be sure to answer YES to overwriting the contents.

Does this make sense?

Here is the update, be sure to use the one designed for your specific platform, also make sure you are running the latest version of Oracle Java SE, we have both Java packages below this response (at the very bottom page).

adb shell su -c "mv /data/local/tmp.bak /data/local/tmp"

Question Kindle Fire First Aide Revision 4.1.60-Beta for Windows - Windows 7 Permissions
Quote:

BELASCO,

The more I though about this issue, the more it began to make sense, I think I was just too busy to think straight a few hours ago. Now I am running on pure adrenalin. We setup this package to Run As Administrator, so be sure to select Run As Administrator.

You started to describe the problem, I would like a little more details. We know your Path Statement is perfect, check. We know you are running Windows 7, correct? Check, we know you do not have the C:\Windows\System32 path missing, check. We know you do not have the SDK installed, check. You have check the device manager and it should show 4 icons total:

Kindle > Android ADB Interface
Portable Devices > Kindle

Check. You have created a shortcut to the desktop and you will run it from now on "As Administrator", check. What I need a little more details is the "Windows keeps bringing me back to the default path of C:\Windows\System32\" can you give me any more deatils? Do you mean when you exit the software you see C:\Windows\System32\? This should not be happening since the DOS windows should close with our software - I think if we focus our attention here, we will find a solution.

When you create a shortcut to RunMe.bat are you opening up C:\KFFirstAide and finding RunMe.bat, then Right Hand Mouse Click on RunMe.bat and choose Send To - Desktop - Create Shortcut. After you do this there will be a shortcut on the desktop. Next go to the Shortcut and Right Hand Mouse click over the desktop shiortcut select Preoperties. Here is where you will check the box Run As Administrator - leave everything else default. Please do this so you have a new clean shortcut. Then run the software and select Option 23, does it run error free now? Or at least fairly error free? We did make a large number of changes to this install making it more Windows 7 friendly.

If that does not solve your issue, we would like you to run the software like this:

1. Find the Windows Command Prompt icon
2. Bring the mouse to the Command Prompt icon, Right Hand Mose Click "Open As Administrator"
3. When this command prompt opens you should be at C:\Windows\System32
4. Type the following:

Code:
cd C:\KFFirstAide
5. You should now see C:\KFFirstAide
6. From this point type:

Code:
RunMe.bat
7. Select Option 23

How does the software run now? Does the install complete? Is the Kindle better now?

dekor8tor,

Correct the Path as per my last post to you and Run the Option 11 first if the ADB communication is fine Run Option 21 to Root. Be sure to pay close attention to the Kindle for 2 things:

1st: The Restore - Click on Restore when you see it show up on the Kindle. Then pay close attention to our software there will be times you need to press any key to continue

2nd: Pay attention to a SuperSU or Superuser Pop-up or Request on the Kindle, be sure to Allow or Grant the request.

DO NOT install the Google Play or Google Apps until we are 100% sure you have Root, OK? If something fails, post the failures. As the Root process runs there may be minor errors, these can be expected since we are Exploiting the Kindle to Root it.

Was it you that was having a hard time figuring out which Java to download? If yes, see the bottom of this post we left you the Java links so you can update Java if needed.

Exclamation Kindle Fire First Aide Revision 4.1.60-Beta for Windows - Busybox Installation

You need Busybox. When you obtain Root, and you are 100% sure you have Root, then run Option 18 to Install Google Play Store, this will install Busybox, we just added this feature tonight at 02:19am PST GMT -8.

As a matter of fact we added the Busybox installer to every option to it does not matter which one you use, they will all first check for a Busybox install and if you do not have it installed, our software will perform a Smart Busybox install with full Symbolic link support.

Please do not select any of the options other than 21 until we know you have Root, OK? Root Checker Basic is very reliable.
