I have installed the Kindle HD drivers, I downloaded QemuRoot, Root_With_Restore, adt bundle and also found Google USB Drivers.

Running WinXP Pro SP3 on my PC

After installing the drivers, my computer recognizes the Kindle like it should. I then tried QemuRoot and then tried Root_With_Restore. See below the screen shots of what I got for this attempt. I then tried to install adt bundle. I clicked the SDK Manager and all I get is a flash on the screen then nothing.
Yes I Enabled ADB and even tried the "Allow installation of applications" under the Device tab. Still nothing. What else should i try?

I'm not sure why would you install kindle reader, when you have a kindle! but
I'm using ADW and I use Amazon home icon to load stock launcher. I can also go directly to my Amazon Docs (my own ebooks). No need for Amazon kindle app...

By the way blackle works great as default search. Still trying to get voice search to work.

Do it the other way around, like it says on guide.

First root with restore, and the qemu

looks like its your adt installation. have you tried running the sdk as administrator?
if adt (adb) is not working, it will not reboot when using the qemu or root with restore.

You can try kindle fire utility (for kindle HD) - i did that first. The root option there doesnt really work like qemu, but you can try that first.
At least tells you there if your ADB is running.

i'm pretty sure thats what you're missing there... if you are sure its working, then you might need to restart the kindle. sometimes helps!

How do I install adt? I am supposed to click SDK Manager, right? If so, all I got was a flash on the screen then nothing.

Ok.. Got something going on.. Now this is the screen I get with Root with Restore. So far, its just been sitting there for about 20 min doing nothing..

dude, it takes persistence. That program only worked the second time i tried it! always try restarting the app at least 3 times if stuck, or restart kindle and try again.
But it definitely should not take that long. If nothing happens for 2 or 3 mins, retry!

Ok.. After a couple more attempts of rebooting the kindle and rerunning Root with Restore, now I have the following screen.



I have reinstalled the drivers, reboot my computer and rebooted the kindle yet again. Still nothing..
I'm lost.. going to work now.. Back tonight

Thanks for the reply
I did a factory reset and still got the same error. "Your Kindle was not registered due to a server error"
I also did a new registration under a different email address and still received the same error.

Before I rooted it
right when i took it out the box and connected it to my home internet it automatically updated to 10.2.4
