Sparkym3 released an automated tool for this, please see here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...34&postcount=1

Please DO NOT donate to nor credit me me for this matter, this was not my find, we just tried an existing exploit on the device.

Dear bloggers, source this when copying:

Amazon failed to fix the bug sparkym3 (http://forum.xda-developers.com/member.php?u=4411543) found in ICS, whoops.

unzip the zip, get su from /system/bin/ and Superuser.apk from /system/app/ and put them in your current directory

adb shell
rm -r /data/local/tmp
ln -s /data/ /data/local/tmp
exit

adb reboot

adb shell
echo 'ro.kernel.qemu=1' > /data/local.prop
exit

adb reboot

adb shell mount -o remount,rw /system
adb push su /system/xbin/su
adb shell
chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su
chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su
rm /data/local.prop
exit

adb reboot

adb install Superuser.apk

This is really exciting news! Been hoping for some good news on this front! Just got my new Fire over the weekend. Looking forward to getting the play store working.

Was there a way with the old fires to block Amazon's automatic updates?

Not my work, thank sparkym3. We just went testing older exploits before releasing a new one, and this worked.

If you have the SDK installed and you get "error: device not found" you need to do the following steps. This worked for me.

Navigate to the [your user name]/.android folder. It is under C:\Users

Edit the adb_usb.ini file, adding the following line of code at the end:

01949

Close and save that file.

Now find the folder where your SDK is installed, and open the usb_driver folder. In that folder, find the file android_winusb.inf and add the following code to both the [Google.NTx86] and [Google.NTamd64] sections:

;Kindle Fire
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006&MI_01

Reboot and then run adb shell again. It should recognize your device.

Jcase is the android locksmith. Just about every device I have seen he has atleast helped unlock. Now if a working recovery can get made, I can see my self getting one of these puppies down the road.
