hey pal, no sure what to tell ya, start from the beginning?

make sure you have the adb drivers on your computer and the right components to run some commands manually on adb - establish if its connecting

remember to have usb debugging enabled and allow Instalation of applications from unknown sources

change the order of the steps. Try Qemu first, then the RoottMANYDROID , and Qemu again
RootManyAndroid didnt work the first time, but it did the second time i tried it.

This guide should work - im pretty sure you have to use a tool to root the kidle HD, thats how i did it twice already.
here:

good luck, sometimes takes persistence

# Kindle Fire 2 Rooted + launcher of my choice + no amazon lock screen

I have a new Kindle Fire HD7 with 10.2.4 software on it.

Here is the log I get from D:\Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v17\runme.bat

I am starting to think Amazon has locked the device down.

I am not a fully skilled developer, I just gattered bits and pieces and learn how to use them. From what I gather looks like you have a comunications issue. This is a Kindle Fire 2 forum I dont have a Kindle 7 HD to trouble shoot your issue. I what I recommend is to factory restore your Kindle Fire and reinstall any driver in you pc and retry. Apart from that I advise to keep trying Kindle 7 HD forum, Sorry

Sorry if I am a bit late on my response I work a full time job. If you have the same Issue I recommend the same treatment. Looks like a connection issue. Factory reset your Kindle Fire 2 Gen and reinstall kindle drivers.

What OS version are you running on your kindle?

nice Tut.

The only thing missing is a list of Amazon apps that can by deleted/moved without problems.

My Kindle have after root and install a new Launcher, over 20 Amazon apps.

I think most o then can by deleted/moved.


Flash player installation tutorial would be very nice..
There are plenty of other streaming sites except Youtube they need flash player.

Install it through aptoide. Look for it in play market.
Install it from the installer and you can delete it after, aptoide app will stay. It won't have many apps as you need to add repos, which happen automatically like this.
In aptoide, search for "Adobe flash"
Will return nothing but you have a button to search on the web
From that page, select Adobe flash and select install.
A file will be downloaded which if you select from the pull down status bar, will start the installation.
You will also be asked if you want to add the repository.

Thanks for all the great information. I followed your steps and was able to root the kindle fire second generation running the 10.2.4 update.

Only one problem, the Amazon kindle reader does not work if I start it from the Apex launcher (tried other launchers as well), but it still works through the stock launcher. Just wondering if anyone knew a workaround?

Thanks

1st off Thanks for the Guide
I was able to root my kindle that runs 10.2.4 but I am now stuck with no solution
My Kindle is brand spanking new and matter of fact it still has the plastic on it
This is a Christmas present for my brother.
So I never registered it with amazon in regards to buying anything from the app store.
After rooting it I tried to register with the Amazon store so I can install a file manager so I can install the Google apks
but Amazon will not let me register as I always get an error message when i try to log in.
I am assuming I cant log in because of the Root.
Is there any other way to get around this so I can install the apk's

Google services framework apk
Google Play store apk
Google youtube apk
Google chrome apk

This is an easy thing to fix. Go to system/app and cut move kindleforoter apk to another folder, and reboot your kindle fire 2 and install kindle app from the the Play Store. Have fun and Enjoy your reading

This is weird root should not do that to your kindle....try to factory restore your kindle and try to log in. I will be checking every few hours for your feedback so your brother can have a wonderfull Christmas gift
