I think if you removed the files and lines in the updater-script that flash any sort of bootloader or recovery, you should be fine.

If you can strip everything out except the system ROM itself, then you should be able to get that alone to install via TWRP without issue. It'd be like installing any other ROM.

Have just had one bought for me for Christmas, while the Black Friday deal was on. 99 for the Kindle Fire 2, so many people must have picked one up.

Does anyone know how long it took to get root access on the original Fire?

Edit: I see people are managing to get root. Maybe we need a couple of step by step guides that state exactly how people are getting root access. Make it as simple as possible to encourage the community?

I have been looking for something like that. But everywhere I see they are inconsistency on how to obtain root, and Google play access. Also it looks like the kindles updates Amazon has this table locked down to the teeth.

There was a thread in the forum up earlier this week.....it helped me obtain root access on my KF2, and Google play access.. I don't know why it was removed or moved. It wasn't that hard once I got Win7 64 to recognize the KF2 with the ADB driver.

It was moved to http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=34779123 by a moderator due to the rules of the forum. But, personally, I think it belongs here.

I already had an og kfire and was really pleased with it now that it's running Hashcodes AOSP 4.1.2. I just got 2 new kfires and opened up and started right away to unlock and install the same thing I have on my og fire. Well I soon found out they are gen2 fires and Then I found out there's no development on them yet.

Is the gen2 new and development just hasn't gotten rolling yet? I sure hope that's the case.

Yes, its new and we are working on a permanent root solution, at the moment. No ROMs have been developed yet but, Temp root has been achieved for some and Google Play Store. Hang in there!

Actually, this method don't work after latest firmware update (10.2.3). I'm really sad. First thing, that everyone must to do is disable automatic updates after getting root. But how?

I played around with them for a few minutes and I just decided to send them back. got 2 N7's instead. I was wanting to make them like the n7 and save a few bucks anyway so it just made sense to spend a little more and cut to the chase.

I repeat do not try to root 10.24 you will be stuck in a boot loop on fast flashing kindle logo if you happen to have done it like me just slowly go into settings and do a factory reset it will finally restore eventually its so slow make sure the wifi is on it will deregister your device.
