Red face An Alternate Approach To Rooting,

So recently I fixed my Kindle Fire HD 7 which had been bricked and something dawned upon me... We're spending hours writing scripts to hack Amazon's Software so we can obtain Root access. Instead of writing these scripts why not dump Amazon OS Rom, Add the Rooty Stuff, and then restore it via fast boot. That's what I did and have it to where it will not automatically update and lose the Root. Wouldn't this be a much faster and safer approach to Rooting? I apologize if I posted this in the wrong place.
Devices: Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE | Kindle Fire HD 7
Carriers: Virgin Mobile USA | WiFi Only
Roms: Rooted Stock | Stock Kindle OS 7.4.3 (working on root)
Temp Root? ./adb push ./su to ./data/local/tmp (ADB + BINs)
Guides I've Written:
