Talking [ROOT][ONE-CLICK][UPDATED 11-30-11] Get ADB running AND Root with SuperOneClick

So I was messing around with different one clicks since I got ADB going on my kindle fire and I was able to Successfully use SuperOneClick 2.2 to root my kindle fire!

Sorry for the mess. Its late, and I wanted to type this up so I could crash...

To get adb going you must download the android sdk (google it).
*Run SDKManager.exe and download the google-usb_drivers package from "3rd party tools"
* Download platform-tools as well

Open a command prompt and run adb update usb to get the .android folder to appear.

goto: %USERPROFILE%\.android and edit the adb_usb.ini and add this to the end of the file and save:
Code:
Select Code
0x1949
then go into where you have the sdk at and open the google-usb_driver folder and edit android_winusb.inf and add this to the [Google.NTx86] section and [Google.NTamd64] section:
Code:
Select Code
;Kindle Fire
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006&MI_01
save and close

If you have already plugged your kindle into the usb you may have to open device manager and find "Kindle" under other devices and choose the android_winusb.inf file.

Turn on Installation of apps from unknown sources: tap the top bar>choose more...(+)>device

open a command prompt and run adb kill-server then try adb devices..

you should see a device listed.

go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=803682a

download and run SuperOneClick and choose the "root" option. let it go!

Enjoy!

That was quick. I wonder if Amazon prefers the device to be rootable or not? Normal Kindle is quite easy to root too.

Supposedly it was supposed to be easy to root. So I would think so. I am sure amazon could have made it a lot harder if they wanted to.

I almost suspect from their coy comments (yes, it will be rooted, no we don't care, type of thing) That they're just after market share, period. Now let's bring on CM ICS! (impatient optimist in me, sorry!)

Amazon said they wouldn't get in the way of root.
