rooted the 7.1.5?
Just a few minutes after I got my brand new kindle online, it updated itself...
Has anyone had any luck rooting the kindle fire hd 7.1.5 with the following method?
theandroidsoul.com/easy-automated-root-for-kindle-fire-hd-7/

adb simply will not recognize the kindle when attached. I've tried it on Windows Vista, 7 and Mac OSX 10.6.8. However I'm able to connect and transfer files fine.
adb and 'allow installation of applications' are both enabled on the kindle.

Thanks for the input.

I had the exact same problem, i tried several different methods of rooting several different times and i could never get the adb to recognize. what i did that worked for me was unistalling the driver software for the kindle in the device manager, while your kindle is unplugged, then download the new drivers and then plug your kindle fire back in. then in the device manager it should recognize the kindle as composite which means adb is working and simply try the automated install again and it would work.

So I downloaded the update file from Amazon and pulled out the necessary instant video and loaded them on my 1st generation Fire running a 4.1.1 JB ROM in hopes of having my Amazon Instant Prime Videos play...all I got was an error message that Amazon had unexpectedly quit working.....

I had used a previous thread on what files to pull from the first generation Fire....

Any thoughts??

problem with home button and status bar
Hi everyone,

My home button and the "swipe from the top" has disappeared since my last restart. I really have no idea what's happened and now I am using the apps called "Button Savior" to return the home screen.Maybe thid was because I have deleted some system files from system/data/data/com.android. providers.settings. I have restarted several times and it didn't work for my device.Now its really inconvenient to use the Kindle Fire HD. My current software version is 7.1.13. Could you guys help me to solve this problem? Thank you very much in advance.

There is a thread on the notification bar disappearing, it seems to be linked to the Gmail app. I would follow that thread for more information.

Root not working on Kindle 7.1.5
I just opened a Kindle HD with software 7.1.5 and cant get the ROOT to work as described. Someone mentioned in this thread they got it to work with different drivers. Can you please provide a link for those drivers.

Thanks

Is there any reason that the su script and the super User app can't be integrated in this update file?
