for now only "nandroid" like backups (the sys partition as bin) and restores.
Gran said he will take a look at twrp but right now before we try to modify any part of the system, we need a good restore tool.

His tool is not finished yet, for now only sys restore is ready in alpha stage. But better ask Gran

The next step is custom kernel (booted from original kernel) and maybe twrp.

If anyone of you is a developer and/or want to help, just join us and ask for permission to join the hangouts chat.

I am not a developer so I can not do much right now.

But we need help for

custom 2nd kernel booted from original via kexec (i think gran got the part booting the kernel, but the kernel itself is missing yet)
cwm/twrp ports (cwm untouched yet, gran took a look at twrp)
(maybe 2nd boot a different rom)
stable cm source for our device (4.4)
sw based boot into fastboot
xposed modules for stock (multimarket,navbar with recent app menu, ....)
oh we have a 855 mb cache partition, so keep in mind we cannot touch partition tables yet. If you can use the cache partition use it

Hope I don't forgot anything

Hi people,

First of all, sorry to disappoint, but I'm not a troll. I'm just a developer who was not exactly pleased when Amazon patched the root exploit

This tool can restore any device as long as you can boot into fastboot. If you can do that, you're golden.

Here's a link to the very very very very early alpha version for Windows.. it can only restore devices (doesn't have a root feature yet or anything else) and it's not entirely polished, but it definitely gets the job done. https://peniscorp.com/KindleRoot_dist_windows_0.1.zip

Here's the source code on GitHub... but since it's written in Lua it's pretty much included in the ZIP. https://github.com/GranPC/kindleroot

Hope you'll find it useful

Maybe the bootloader cant be cracked, but that doesnt mean we can't do a second bootloader. Right?

Also, how can i make aosp settings stick after reboot? It always goes back to the stock settings app. (I'm installing aosp settings as an update to the settings app after turning off signature check in lucky patcher)

I just pushed it to /system/app and removed the stock one. It's not rocket science.
