A friend of mine has a kindle fire hd 8.9 which he wants me to root and put a custom rom on. The problem is he doesn't have the fastboot cable anymore. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't screw up his device but I just want to be extra cautious since it's not a device I own. Now my wife has a 1st generation kindle fire with the original plug/charger so I was wondering if that fastboot cable would work just as well. Sorry about the dumb question I just want to make sure I have everything covered before I work on my friends kindle.

No fastboot cord for 8.9 KFHD. Just use standard USB cord. If it fits it will work.

Fastboot cables don't work on the 8.9 models anyway so I wouldn't worry about that.
