I would post this in the Development forum, but I'm still a noob, so forum rules won't let me. Sorry about that; this seems the best place to try it.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit. I recently downloaded the Kindle Fire Utility (KFU) to root my Kindle Fire, and proceeded down the list. Everything went find and ducky until I tried to run "run.bat." Then I got the error message:

***********************************************
* Kindle Fire Utility 0.9.5 *
***********************************************
*Donate on XDA if you appreciate my hard work!*
***********************************************

\Kindle was unexpected at this time.

What I eventually found out was that extra quotes in the run.bat file were causing problems:

Lines such as
for /f "tokens=1,2,* delims=_ " %%A in ('"findstr /b /c:":menu_" "%~f0""') do echo. %%B %%C

were the culprits. I found that if I removed the extra double quotes ("s) inside the parentheses, it worked for me:

for /f "tokens=1,2,* delims=_ " %%A in ('findstr /b /c:":menu_" "%~f0"') do echo. %%B %%C

I had to do this 3 times for 3 for loops, and then the batch file ran just fine.

Just wanted to get this solution out there - I hadn't seen the error pop up much, and don't know why I was getting it.

Many thanks for the script - very nice to have this!

Just thought I'd point out that the version number you pasted is 0.9.5... (older version).

Using 9.6
Here's using 0.9.6 (Sorry, BTW, I didn't realize I'd posted the 9.5 results)

***********************************************
* Kindle Fire Utility 0.9.6 *
***********************************************
*Donate on XDA if you appreciate my hard work!*
***********************************************

\Kindle was unexpected at this time.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Kindle Fire Utility>

Now, more interesting:

***********************************************
* Kindle Fire Utility 0.9.6 *
***********************************************
*Donate on XDA if you appreciate my hard work!*
***********************************************

1 Bootmode Menu
2 Install Permanent Root with Superuser
3 Install Latest TWRP Recovery
4 Install Latest Clockwork Recovery
5 Install Latest FireFireFire
6 Extras (Requires Root)
0 Recheck Device Status


ADB Status: Offline
Boot Status: Unknown

Please make a selection or hit ENTER to exit:

C:\temp\Kindle Fire Utility>


-------------------------
Same files!!

I suspect there are some permission subtleties going on here >

But why for loops work differently in \Program Files (x86)\ and in \temp\ is *really* beyond me.

Anyway, there's another solution if you run into this obscure problem: run the KFU from a different directory!
