Root for Amazon 7" Kindle Fire HD Software Version 7.2.2
Thanks to natorus87!
Step 1 Use "Root MANY ANDROID!" http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460 and use the Normal Method. Pay attention, at some point you will have to respond to a "Restore" dialog box on the Kindle itself. Ignore any errors. The Kindle will reboot and now responds Slowly.
Hey, appreciate this, but when I click on your link it takes me to another xda page with several links. Nowhere does it show "step 1." Can you be kind enough to cut and paste the specific step? Thanks.
This works for KF2 as well. Just Step 1 will do. The ADB in the zip file is not updated, so you have to download the newest SDK and then copy all the files from /platform-tools/ to /stuff/ in the unzipped location (overwrite all existing files) and run the batch file after.
ADB install still doesn't work after. So install a file explorer direct from the Kindle and do all the necessary there.
What a great news before the Chritsmas!
As exactly you described, after step 1, the system became kind of slow. I didn't bother to check if it was back to root and just ran step 2; then the system is back to charming as before. Thank you!
PS: I personally feel that 7.2.2 is smoother and faster than 7.2.1.
