and the date for the adb file matches the date you said it should be

There is a problem with ADB Communicating to the Kindle.

What platform are you using? Windows 7?

Are you sure ADB is enabled on the Kindle itself?

When you go into Windows device manager, do you see any Yellow Triangles over the devices?

In the device manager, do you see "Android Composite ADB Interface" or ?

ive already uninstalled and deleted the drivers, then installed the ones from the Quem folder and it gives me the same "drivers were not installed blah blah" message everyone else gets, and so i unplug then plug back in the kindle and my pc reinstalls the adb drivers....

try to root again, and nope, nothing.

Woop, finally got it rooted! Thanks for the noob guide and your patience.

One more question tho, I can't find where this path is: /system/ect/security/otacerts.zip

I'd rather not have amazon get rid of my rooting and wipe all my google play apps once I get that up and running.

OK, everything looks good with ADB. Looks like we have a pesky Windows 7 issue. Windows 7 Command prompt is only User level by default and will cause these utilities to fail.

If you go into Programs > Accessories or Programs > Accessories > System Tools do you see the Command Prompt? Now Right Hand Mouse click over the prompt and choose Run As Administrator

Once the Command Prompt is opened navigate to each utility using the "cd" "cd.." "cd c:\" etc command.

Once you navigate to the Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v17 folder, you will be able to successfully run the batch file through the Administrative prompt.
