Thanks all, got all the help we needed.

With the help of Jcase of TeamAndIRC, I spent a good bit of the night bothering / learning from him and he was able to beat 6.2.1. He will be releasing it tomorrow morning over at Rootzwiki.

Once posted, I will have a new KFU ready to flash TWRP, and allow users to flash the rooted here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1402440

Please take the time to thank him when it is posted, and make a few donations after you check it out and get your fire back to root Let's get him his own fire to break haha.

Code:
tools\adb install kindleroot.apk
3676 KB/s (15060 bytes in 0.004s)
        pkg: /data/local/tmp/kindleroot.apk
Success
tools\adb shell
$
tools\adb kill-server
tools\adb root
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *
restarting adbd as root
tools\adb shell
error: device not found
tools\adb shell
error: device not found
tools\adb shell
error: device not found
tools\adb shell
error: device not found
tools\adb shell

Link will be posted tomorrow.

So those with 6.2.1 will be able to root their devices?

Awesome. I was going to install CM7 but fell asleep and when I had turned on my KF the following morning I had received the update.

Much thanks for this.

Whew was beginning to sweat it, actually was about to order a factory cable.
Guess I will need to be a lot more careful after I get root back

Great news given that even pre-rooted 6.2.1 are being updated to stock 6.2.1

Is it very complicated to do? The new root?

No, it is not. You launch an app on the kindle fire, and you can launch this:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1407249

Jcase's root you will need to setup root yourself. I will add that tomorrow morning to my TWRP installer, but at the moment I am exhausted and need sleep.

So it may be a bit harder, only in that it doesn't install permanent root, just temporary to get ADB into root to flash TWRP.
