Just the bootloader. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Just the boot loader, however it will boot loop if you don't downgrade the os, sostick the ROM on before hand to avoid having to push it onto the device later on if you aren't downgrading the os as well.

Please Read the instructions and use the debugger if you run into errors.

The bootloader must match the stock Amazon firmware to flash properly and the bootloader needs to be 7.3.0 or 7.23 for the exploit to work. I can't even imagine trying to work out the exploit on the new HDX's

Okay, I'm downgrading to 7.2.3. Is there a guide on that? Also, will the kindle brick when I install 7.2.3 and the bootloader is 7.4.6?
Hey, are you reading my signature? Read the next post...


Kindle Fire: RIP (Screen died)

Nexus 7: RIP (The screen cracked, for no reason. Grrrr Asus Support.)
Kindle Fire HD: Amazon 7.4.6. Possibly rooted......

One other thing I'd recommend doing, is buy a factory cable should anything go wrong. It has saved me from quite a few scary moments

You should get a fastboot cord first. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2128848 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2347170 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2271909

I would use the first link. All 3 links are good though. Read number two links before modding though.
