Kindle fire Insecure by Default (fix?)
This obviously isn't a problem for people who just use their fire for books, movies and music.
Those of us who for example would like to hook the device into a corporate email service (for example) would probably be turned off by the fact anyone with a USB cable can crack this puppy right open (using adb + zergRush or SuperOneClick).
The screen password obviously isn't enough on its own.
The fix for this is of course to disable adb on the device which makes your USB port a safe way to charge and load files versus a giant security hole.
Of course, its a PITA to turn adb on and off manually. There's no development menu to do so on the kindle fire like on most android devices. This leaves you with editing settings.db.
Anyone know of a simple app to turn adb on and off? A widget would work, or other tool.
Answered my own question, but I'm sure you'd all like the tip.
Install this as a system app:
