Talking [UTILITY]One Click Root Kindle Fire On Mac KindleWater all kindle OS versions!

KindleWater v3.0

KindleWater is now a part of BreakDroid all in one tool. I am also slowly backing off of Kindle development because of the Nexus 7

The new version is bundled as a part of BreakDroid (A multi device rooting app). Just download breakdroid from the download link below and you're good to go!



Downloads:

Download the newest version of BreakDroid from BreakDroid's website northmendo.com/breakdroid


Credits:
ST3P_2 (Me) writing the UI and some of the scripts, and slimming the SDK to the essentials
northmendo (co author) for writing the scripts and hosting the website
pokey9000 for fastboot
Team Win for TWRP recovery

Common fixes:
Try opening up terminal on your Mac and typing "adb devices" without the quotes. It should list a number like 29491656. If it doesn't the app isn't going to work.

Try opening terminal and typing "adb kill-server". Then try the adb devices trick above, it should now list a number.

Try restarting your Mac and kindle

Try rerunning KindleWater.

Changelog:

0.6.4 Changed recovery to TWRP and changed boot loader to the new FireFireFire 1.4a!

0.6.2 Became a part of BreakDroid with the 6.3 root

2.1.8 Added instructions for flashing your first ROM

2.1.7 Changed some command timing

2.1.6 Sorted out some su access problems

2.1.3 Fixed some bugs

2.1.2 Improvements to the rooting script

2.1.1 Added the new CWM recovery that doesn't have to be downloaded! 2.1.1= 100% automatic

2.1.0 Fixed some problems with ADB and added a cleaner app to remove older versions of ADB

2.0.0 (first version co authored by northmendo) Basically rewrote everything to automate everything except recovery download (we can't get permission from its author)

1.1.0 Changed some code to speed things up, fixed a misspelling, and rewrote some parts of the tutorial to make things more understandable

1.0.1 Fixed some things requested by northmendo, the creator of the USB.ini installer and ADB installer scripts

1.0.0 Created the application (duh)

To boot into recovery: Shut the kindle off, turn it on, when it shows the triangle with a fire hold the power button until the light behind the power button turns orange then release it. Wait a second and voila! There's recovery!

We aren't responsible if this bricks your kindle. There is a 1% chance it could although it's very unlikely. I am still willing to help if you have questions.

ST3P_2 and I have decided to team up and do just that. He knows xcode and is going to put together the ui. I have the adb scripts and would like to make one to download and install burritoroot. It would be awesome if you would allow us to include it and help in the process.

Are you both on G+ would that be a good place to collaborate along with gtalk?

It should be easy, burritoroot can flash recovery and fff now, and we don't have to install adb on osx.

Irc would be best for me
