Thx for the help.


Awww crapola. Nevermind. All I knew was that both of them were on 6.3.3, so I thought that was what they've always been on. Bzzzzt. The one that was working still has the adw launcher installed, but it doesn't have root any more. So THAT'S why KFU doesn't work on this new one.

They are my girlfriend's kids' kindles, and I told her not to ever update them, but I guess this one was pushed out.

So.... how long until theres a root kit for 6.3.3?

Didn't brick it, but didn't work either. The apk installs just fine, but when I click the "make it rain" button that says the device will reboot, nothing happens. The device does not reboot, and is not rooted. I tried rebooting the kindle and trying again with the same result. I guess I now fit the definition of insanity.

And... tried V2 of towelroot this morning. Still no worky-worky.

Somebody get a straitjacket.

Old rooting methods not working yah...

What I have done -
1. fastboot using factory cable
2. install TWRP+FFF with KFU
3.flash modified pre-rooted ROM

If Amazon continues updating 1st gen, not sure there are lots of enthusiasts, who would continue rooting it. Thus decided to switch to alternative ROM. Well, stock is better for battery etc... etc... but as I do also have HDX and most of time use it, having stock ROM on 1st gen is not as crucial for me.

According to this post (and the post above^^), if you have a factory cable (special cable used to power on in bootloader mode), you can revert to a custom recovery and bootloader and then flash a 6.3.2 ROM. Problem then is avoiding another OTA.

Please don't just start a new thread, when you don't get the answer you want.

To root new update 6.3.3, you need a fastboot/factory cable, adb/ fastboot.exe files, FFF bootloader.bin, twrp.img, and my prerooted 6.3.3 zip
Kindle Fire Utility does not work with 6.3.3 update
