Not wanting to steal any of Vashypooh's thunder, but I kluged together the following tweak/hack to restore full functionality to KFU with 6.2.2 ROM and the new version of BurritoRoot.

Basically I've taken JCase's directions for using BurritoRoot2 and incorporated them into Vashypooh's script. I know there are better ways to do this, but everything seems to be working OK.

1. Download the new BurritoRoot2. Links can be found at the following post:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1410223

2. Move BurritoRoot2.bin to the '\files' subdirectory in your Kindle Fire Utility directory.

3. Find 'run.bat' in the KFU directory, open in your favorite text editor, and find the following section:

Code:
:burrito
	if "%adb%" == "Online" (	
		if /i not "%rooted%" == "Yes" (			
			echo. Installing BurritoRoot, Courtesy of Jcase of TeamAndIRC!
			echo.
			tools\adb install -r files\\%kindleroot%
			echo. Activating BurritoRoot...
			tools\adb shell am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n net.andirc.kindleroot/net.andirc.kindleroot.DirectCall
			echo. Elevating the Shell...
			tools\adb kill-server
			echo.
			tools\adb root
			echo.
			tools\sleep 5
			
			set rooted="yes"
4. Edit the section so it looks like the following (the highlighted lines are the changes):

Code:
:burrito
	if "%adb%" == "Online" (	
		if /i not "%rooted%" == "Yes" (			
			echo. Installing BurritoRoot, Courtesy of Jcase of TeamAndIRC!
			echo.
			tools\adb push files\BurritoRoot2.bin /data/local/
			tools\adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/BurritoRoot2.bin
			echo. Activating BurritoRoot...
			tools\adb shell /data/local/BurritoRoot2.bin
			echo. Elevating the Shell...
			tools\adb kill-server
			echo.
			tools\adb root
			echo.
			tools\sleep 5
			
			set rooted="yes"
5. Save the file and run. Full Functionality should be restored to KFU

I'll have to admit I haven't tried every option, but I have been able to install the permanent root, install Twrp, and install the Google apps.

Hopefully this works OK for you. If not... I can try to help, but I'm really pretty new at all of this. You might be better waiting for the next version of KFU.

I just used your method and replaced the Burrito2 code and added in the file. Then I went to 0.92 KFU and run it. Now my Kindle is bricked, stuck on kindle fire logo and the unbrick utility won't work for it.

Known Tricks

•If you end up stuck at the yellow triangle, in KF Utility select Boot Normal, wait for it to say <waiting for device> and then press and hold the power button 20 seconds until the fire turns off, then when its off turn it back on. This sometimes happens, I have yet to find a clean solution
•If you end up stuck with a yellow triangle, do not EVER unplug it. Leave it plugged in. Check the windows drivers to make sure it isnt showing as "kindle" again. Fastboot is different and can cause this.

Follow the instructions carefully and don't mess up your run.bat. This method DID work for me. I regained root and reinstalled recovery without issue.

Thank you very much, rich_stwrt!

Have you PMed vashy with the updated code so he could add it to the KFU on the main thread?

Most likely not...

I used this this morning without any issue on a friends KF using his computer... There was a hitch where trying to get fastboot working but as usual it was the common problem of device drivers needing to be redone (again). Every thing needed to get his KF settled after the update is included.

Note that if you are seeing <waiting for device> your drivers are not loaded correctly... Even if they were before... you need to reinstall them again.

the lack of solid drivers for this thing is ridiculous
