When I first bought my Kindle Fire 2 a couple years ago I followed the instructions in the thread "[Root][Working 10.3.1]Kindle Fire 2 Root made easy" by Jordan011. I'm rooted on 10.2.4 but don't have TWRP or a backup, and I don't have a fastboot cable. I mainly use my KF2 for reading and browsing the net so I'm happy with the stock ROM.

My wife decided she wants a Kindle and was cool enough to suggest that I buy the new 7" HD and give her my Fire 2. So my question is, how can I reset my KF2 while keeping root so it'll be fresh for her to install what she wants? Since I'm keeping the stock ROM is there any benefit (bug fixes, performance increases, etc) to upgrading it to a newer version with root? Lastly, do I need a fastboot cable in order to install TWRP so I can make a backup?

Many thanks,

SOLVED! I simply used the Factory Reset in the settings menu and was still able to maintain root. It wiped the "SD Card" partition and it's running great.
