From Original thread:

Hi all, some of you may have seen my utility over in the de-bricking thread. My goal at this point is to try and make lives easier for everyone I can.

So what I have done is created a script that can be used to handle a lot of common things people may want, and I will continue to add things people request that I think would be easy, and beneficial. I just wanted to make this situation easier for the average person.

You will see how the tool detects you at the default screen, and can refresh it by hitting 0 at any menu to have it refresh ADB/Fastboot and see what mode the kindle is in.

Currently the tool comes packaged with the drivers required to operate ADB and Fastboot.

Please note: If your device can't be seen in fastboot mode, please make sure to install the drivers packaged with this, as it will show up afterwards. You can use the install_drivers.bat with the device plugged in for this.

Usage should be straight forward for the tool. If you are having issues with something, this tool has a good chance of getting you back on track.
Rooting has been tested with the latest update (6.3.2) and it works 100%. Be sure to have your device booted up in normal mode before running the root.

Features:
  • Automatic elevation to root for tool operations.
  • Full root install.
  • Auto detect current bootmode.
  • Auto Detect ADB/Fastboot Online/Offline.
  • Auto download update.zip from Amazon.
  • Auto download and install TWRP Recovery.
  • Auto download and install COTR Recovery.
  • Auto download and install FFF Bootloader.
  • Manage current bootmodes.
  • Manage Read/Write.
  • Install GoogleApps/Market/GoLauncherEX.
  • Lock/Unlock the Wallpaper from being changed.
    As of 3/16/2013:
  • Doesn't support CWM for now bad DL link and seems there is no updated, stable version.
  • Automated Dual-Boot installation and Un-Dual Boot
  • Choose Amazon Firmware to update to
  • More to come... This needs a bit of a code re-write from the things I added. Expect it to be updated soon.
Please feel free to contact me if I should add even more features to this

Here are some screen-shots:



More to come...

Please leave a message if this tool does not help you, malfunctions, or just to say thank you, or request more features!

Hello.

I have a few questions.
Does matter what kind of USB cable I use? I have a Samsung one so I was wondering if I could use that. And to install Root itself you need the drivers right? Where do I get the drivers for 6.3.2? After it recognizes the kindle I just click the root option and... Kaboom right!!? Lol.

Thank you for your help.

You need to run install_drivers.bat the run kfu and select root with your device connected in normal mode. The drivers should be universal with any ROM. Also, as long as the cable you are using is a micro-usb it should work I use an HTC cable and it works.

And where would I find this install run.bat? From the original thread right? And for the TWRP I just press that option right?

and does this version have the yellow triangle problems?

Yellow triangle had to do with an older version of fff bootloader. I think. I never experienced the problem myself. I'm assuming that it is gone as of fff 1.4a
