So this worked for me with the Softwareversion 7.2.2 !

Step 1 use this tool http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1886460 and use the normal method.
(the program will say that the process has not worked but this it all ok) now the Kindle is very slow
and the display is blinking.

Step 2 now you use the Quemu Method for the 7.2.1 version (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1893838)

That was all and now you should have root!! n

*Update: This works also with the 7.2.3 Software version i only used the 1 Step ( Root many Androids )

Isn't this the same tool used to root the 8.9? But we use option 2 with the tool instead of option 1.

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.

Step 2 Use "Qemu automated root" http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1893838 and allow the process to complete.

Step 3 Launch Apps-Superuser to initialize Superuser.apk

That was all you now have Root.

KFHD7 7.2.2 re-root successful!
Worked for me also on previously Qemu rooted KFHD7 recently OTA updated to 7.2.2.

I also had to use both steps. Serious brownshorts minute between steps 1 and 2 as it set there frozen and seemingly bricked.

Thanks

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.

Yeah the rooting process hasn't changed since the last update, no need for extra/changed steps.
