I am trying to root a friend's kindle fire hd 7" 2013 running 11.3.2.1... the problem is I do not have a factory cable. I can't seem to find anywhere that explicitly states that one is 100000000% REQUIRED to get to fastboot for this device, but if anyone can clear that up for me that would be great. I'm under the impression once I get to fastboot, then this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=347 will work...


Any help would be fantastic.

and take a look inside the bat file for windows, just copy and paste commands or execute it. (commands are the same for win and linux but dont execute the file on linux only c & p)
Yes you need the factory cable

2. root it
3. fastboot new (original) img
4. install gapps and have fun

Right- I understand the steps that I am supposed to do, and I actually ended up with the "11.3.2.1-root" zip you linked... I guess I just linked the wrong post.

Well without this factory cable I guess this won't be going anywhere. Oh well. Thanks for the reply.

you can build youself one, search for it, just wire the red cable with the unused pin on the back at the micro usb side
(i holded it during the flash in my left hand because I have not soldered it )

I might try it- I do have a lot of microusb cables floating around, but I also just made a realization - there doesn't appear to be any custom roms for the 2013- soho (all appear to be for 2012-tate). If I saw some for 2013 then I'd probably just say what the heck and try to make a cable but unfortunately that's a pretty big deal breaker.
