Root Kindle Fire HD Step 7.1: Next go back to the open command prompt, at the /Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v17/# enter:
chmod 777 RunMe.sh
Choose option 1, Run Normal Method and ignore errors. Pay attention, you will need to answer "Restore" a dialogue box on the Kindle. Click on Restore. When the program has completed, the Kindle will Reboot.

OK... I am having trouble running the above code "chmod 777 RunMe.sh" and "sh RunMe.sh". The terminal file begins, I select option 1, and nothing happens on my Kindle Fire HD 7. I do not get a "restore" option on the KFHD7. In the terminal window I get many errors stating "cannot execute binary file" the script runs to the end with several cannot execute binary file errors. Also, while in su (root#) in terminal, I ran ./adb devices and the device does show. I am obviously missing something....
Thanks for any assistance....
You did obtain the software from us, correct? We found a bug in the older version of the adb binary. The new
download includes updates that may solve your problem. Please go back and download Root MANY ANDROID!
The date and time on the new Binary is 01/02/2013 1:33 PM.
The problem with a Linux tutorial is there are many variables between platforms. An example is
to obtain Superuser on SuSe Linux, it is a simple su -, then you will be at the # (Root) command
prompt. In Ubuntu Linux you need to type sudo before every command that requires Superuser
Permissions. Having said this, these utilities need to run at Root or Superuser. Have you tried
sudo before every command? First update, then try again.
