Angry You are one great guy
It worked like a charm. I had to use both steps and in the middle of the Root_with_Restore all my icons and images disappeared (big panic), They reappeared towards the end of the Quemu and all went well,

So, if it happens to somebody else no need to panic!

Thanks again indeed :

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

PS: Sry for my english ^^

The second part was not so easy.

I had to manually to the qemu root process by creating a new file. (The full cmd version is found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1893838)

I had to copy the adb file and the AdbWinApi.dll and AdbWinUsbApi.dll from the SDK into a new folder. the added the su and superuser.apk files into it aswell.

Hope this helps anyone else that had my problem!

Why is this happening exactly? I had no problem rooting with qemu before but now I can't get bin4ry's method to work. It just says adb is out of date. I understood the first part of what you did but not the second part.

Dave, Here's direct link to file: http://uploaded.net/file/xdevcthz Make sure the download is NOT a .htm file (which happened to me probably because I used a download accelerator). It should be a .zip (4.15mb) file. If it is .htm you'll be blocked from downloading the file again for 1-3 hours unless you're desperate and rich enough to become a premium member. Otherwise, you can PM me for the file (per Bin4ry's request no mirror is to be posted publicly) or search Google for the file under its name.

William, all you need is to download this file to your PC/laptop, extract it, make sure you enable ADB (i.e., "on") on your Kindle (Under Settings/Security), connect Kindle to your PC, open extracted downloaded file and double-click RunMe.bat and select Normal method. You will then be prompted to select restore or delete data, a screen for which should be on the Kindle

I was able to reroot with this method using only natorus87's Step 1. Try rebooting device twice before deciding if you want or need to go to Step 2

Thanks. Funny, after the 7.2.2 update, I still didn't have the obnoxious lock screen adds, but they popped up this morning. Man Amazon is making it hard to love their tablets.

Despite the frustrating responses from the tablet during the process, I managed to root my KF2 again, thanks to you!
I have superuser privileges but it still won't let me rename this zip file under etc/security to prevent future updates..


now, after 30 mins, it does let me change it...strange....thanks

I realized my problem. I had SnapPea installed in my windows 7 setup. I uninstalled it and everything went well.

I only did step one, rebooted a couple of times as suggested here and everything seems fine.

Delete/ Rename Otacerts.zip file to Keep Root
After you reroot your KFHD with 7.2.2) using natorus87/bin4ry's method (thanks guys) you must either rename/delete the otacerts.zip file (or use Droidwall app from Google play) IF you want to ensure Amazon KFHD updates do not install automatically and possibly unroot your device. Effectively, you're blocking automatic updates by modifying this file which puts the control back in your court. You'll only know if there's an update if you actively scan the KFHD board or peruse Amazon, but that's a very small price to determine if the update kills (for the moment folks) any current root exploit or if it is harmless, before you install it. Only when you determine the time is right you can manually install the update by downloading to the sdcard/kindleupdates folder and then go to notification bar press: More/Device/Update/Update Your Kindle. Remember not all updates will provide value-added to you, but they might for Amazon -- if you get my gist.

Trust me, Amazon will challenge but not overcome XDA developers who live for these moments to find new exploits.
