Has anyone been able to set up ADB drivers for Kindle Fire HD 7 for windows 8?

Kindle was rooted but when i switched to windows 8 i got some random 7.2.1 user update that i thought i had already gotten and now root is gone and i cant seem to get ADB driver to install, any ideas?

I installed the same way as I did on my Windows 7 box. Just follow the instructions posted here: https://developer.amazon.com/sdk/fire/connect-adb.html

Try this if you have not already.

1. Connect your Kindle Fire to your computer's USB port using the USB cable.
2. From the Start menu, right-click Computer and select Manage.
3. In the left pane, under Computer Management, expand System Tools, and click Device Manager.
4. In the right pane, locate and expand Other devices.
5. Right-click the device name Kindle and click Properties.
6. In the Kindle Properties window, on the Driver tab, click Uninstall, then Confirm, and then unplug your device from your computer.

7. Then run the kindle fire adb drivers again.
8. Then plug in your kindle.
9. To confirm the device has been installed, from Start, click Control Panel, and then select Device Manager. In Device Manager, under Kindle Fire, the device will be included as Android Composite ADB Interface.

I got Win 8 64bit. Delete the "signed_" part of "signed_kindlefirewinusba64/x86" files you'll be able to install it manually from the device manager.

However I still wasn't able to root my KF2 but that seems to be a different issue since the device is recognized as adb device in the device manager.

Signed Drivers
Hey I installed the drivers through this:

1.Use the windowskey +I keyboard shortcut to bring the Chrams and click Change PC settings.
2.Navigate to General and under Advanced Startup, click Restart Now.
3.Now Windows 8 will restart in the advanced menu options, click on Troubleshoot.
4.Click on Advanced options.
5.Next, click the Startup Settings option from the menu.
6.The Startup Settings. From this page simply click Restart.
7.Now Windows 8 will reboot, but instead of going to the Desktop it will start in the Startup Settings page, from here hit F7 or the number 7. Then Windows will boot in a mode that will allow you to install unsigned device drivers in the operating system.

After this just install the drivers and your Kindle will connect with ADB

Hope that helps

followed all instructions, doesn't work.
Drivers say they are installed. Computer does not recognize kindle.

Wasting waaaaaay too much time trying to figure this out. Giving up and trying on windows 7.
