Rooted Kindle Fire 2 fine....but
The root process went perfectly clean and it rebooted fine. Then I couldn't find instructions to install the Play Store. I finally found some that said to copy GoogleServicesFramework.apk to the Kindle and install, I did that cleanly. Then to copy vending.apk to /system/app/ and I did that and was able to change permissions to 664. I then rebooted the Kindle. It goes straight to the triangle. If you push the power button 5 times it reboots to the same thing. I did not try to flash TWRP to it because I saw some having problems with it. I have 10.2.1 on it. I have the proper drivers installed and each time the Kindle rebooted during boot the computer beeped that it recognized it. Since the triangle the PC no longer recognizes it, it does not show up in Device manager and it does not show up in explorer as connected. I think it is hard bricked but wanted to run it by everyone.
Sparkym3's root process went flawlessly on my Fire2, It only took a couple minutes to root and be booted to a working Kindle. I just screwed up the market process somehow.
Let me know your thoughts. Being that everything went so clean with rooting I have a hard time thinking it can be the drivers, cable, usb port.
I've rooted a phone and 2 tablets multiple times but never had this happen. Any help is greatly appreciated.
This is an exact description of the problem:
I get the Kindle Fire logo, sits there several seconds, reboots and the power light goes out and back on, then the logo comes up again, it flashes a couple of times then I get an orange triangle with an exclamation point inside Below that is a message stating "Your Kindle device cannot boot".
Below that is You can reset device to Factory defaults to fix this issue (all data will be deleted from the device"
To reboot your device, press and hold the power button for 4 seconds and release.
To reset to Factory Defaults, press the power button 5 times in succession.
Well the 4 second thing does not work at all, more like 20 seconds. The pressing 5 times just reboots to the same problem and warning triangle. I tried fastboot commands but nothing.and my laptop no longer recognizes the Kindle and nothing is in Device Manager about the Kindle now. The fastboot command just says waiting for device. As I said above the root process went flawlessly and the Fire reboot 3-4 times and the laptop beeped each time that it saw it.
Any help is greatly appreciated
So, I'm totally lost. Maybe a frisbee at this point.
