adb shell ./data/local/BurritoRoot2.bin
adb root

Once you do that, KFU does all the other stuff correctly, including reinstall all the apps with Market/Facebook/etc. and installing TWRP. Once KFU has been updated to use BurritoRoot2 it won't be a big deal. Hope this helps anyone who's trying to get back to where they were after the OTA update.

Hey just want to thank you for the post. I got my fire yesterday, rooted, installed twrp, and used app quarantine to quarantine the ota update apk hoping to prevent an OTA. And everything was working great. Until tonight I was messing around with my fire and it turned off, rebooted, then went to installing a package all on its own.

At first I was confused but I figured somehow the update went through. And sure enough after it restarted I was at 6.2.2, lost root, and twrp. So Ive been scrambling ever since trying to get it back to what it was. I was able to use burritoroot2 to get rooted again. And Ive spent hours reading and trying to install twrp again and finally found your post. So I guess now its just wait until KFU gets updated to be able to install twrp after 6.2.2?

So my question is, after Im able to get twrp back is there any sure fire way to block the OTA? Because I want to keep it at rooted stock. I saw this thread here, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1451747 but it doesnt prevent ota. So other than a custom rom is there a way to prevent amazon from sabotaging my device? Thanks

Like an idiot I updated to 6.2.2 last night but then decided I wanted to root today. Is this going to be updated to use Burritoroot2 or should I just root it by hand(preferably not)

you have to root by hand at the time but after that you can use it with a little patch:

or if you want to edit run.bat:

I got it rooted by hand but IDK what to do to install twrp by cmd. Does the image have to be in the KindleADB folder with the other stuff(su, superuser.apk)
EDIT: Decided screw doing it by hand and did the method the couple guys above me did for recovery and it worked great. Thanks guys

I really hope that at some point, there is a more standardized, predictable and SUCCESSFUL way to flash a recovery system onto our Kindle Fires. I'm not a techie per se' (I do this just as a hobby), so I rely heavily on following directions. It doesn't have to be as easy as having ROM Manager and selecting the Flash CWR option, but it would be nice to be able to follow a set of instructions that include downloading the needed files, and using ADB to enter some commands and end up with a recovery system on my Fire. A nearly complete build of CM9 is out now and it sure would be nice to be able to flash it!

Edit: Used the KFU many times but cannot get a complete install of TWR.

place kfu in something like c:\kfu - it does'nt like blanks in the pathname

and if you have 6.2.2:
root with burritoroot2 and run

adb shell ./data/local/BurritoRoot2.bin
adb root

everytime before using kfu

Thanks. I'll give that a try. Is the Cygwin1.dll supposed to be in the zip file? I noticed that the utility calls on fastboot but that wasn't in the bundle so I'm wondering if the file I dl'd was just missing some stuff for some reason.

I believe it should be working, I wrote it and I used it a couple days ago when I was doing the 6.2.2 update.
