Default [Q] Kindle Fire 7.4.8 did not root with the bin4ry method

Hi, I'm new to this and I'm just wondering why my kindle fire running on 7.4.8 did not root. I followed all the steps for bin4ry, everything went well (backed up rebooted and all) but at the end, the device did not have the superuser app. So I'm assuming it did not root. So what happened? I hope someone can help me with this. Thanks.

Don't select normal, select old when it asks what method.

Hi, thanks for your reply, I wasn't able to use your suggestion but I was able to root the kindle already (checked via root checker). For some reason, the superuser is just not appearing. I've read about it on other threads and they said that I would just have to install the superuser app via google play store. So I'm currently working on that. Thanks again!

V31 Binary Root works best in my opinion. That's why old works better. Install SU and check for root.
