Bit of a noob when it comes to the Kindle Fire. Not trying to flash a full rom or anything, just want to achieve root.

Have looked at a few others that were for the OS 7.4.3 both the Bin4ary method and the thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2096888. The device updated itself to 7.4.6 using OTA just the other night and is currently running that.

Using Windows 7 (64bit) I have started with as clean a slate as I know how and followed the steps listed below.

1. I downloaded the files in Step 1.

2. Extracted the files.

3. I've removed any Kindle drivers both from the Device Manager as well as the Programs & Features found in the Control Panel. I've actually tried this twice with the Kindle connected, and with the Kindle disconnected. Both resulting with no Kindle drivers showing.

4. The dropbox link is broken, but I was able to download the KindleDrivers.exe from the Google Drive link and install them.

5. Kindle was already set with ADB Enabled from previous attempts.

6. Kindle connected, shows under Portable Devices - I have noticed others saying that it should have it's own actual Kindle Fire listing in the devices and not be a subsection of Portable Devices. This method mentions nothing of that really so I continued to the next step.

7. This is where it stops. Runme.bat loads fine and I chose Option 1, and then it just sits there with "Please connect Device with USB-Debugging to your computer" and that's it. The Kindle connects, shows in both Device Manager and Explorer. I can technically browse the Kindles file structure on the PC in Explorer.

Step 8 says to select the option "Backup My Data" - but I cannot find any option to backup the device as shown in the screens. The only "backup" option that shows is to sync it to the cloud. Where is this option to be found or have I missed a step that would have included this option somewhere?

I should note that running "adb devices" from a command line loads the ADB daemon and lists no devices connected before putting me back at a C:\ prompt. I had downloaded the full ADB SDK with all tools etc. from the Android development site.

As others have gotten this to work in 5minutes with minimal hair pulling, I am confused as to which point I'm going wrong.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Default Same here

I'm running in the same problem. I'm able to get through the whole batch file but I get the following error:

Code:
remote object '/system/bin/ric' does not exist
The batch file continues until the end saying that it was successful, but I'm not seeing the su app listed.

I do see the kindle fire listed as it's own device and driver installed just fine. It's clearly connecting to the kindle just fine as the commands for backing up and restoring go through fine.

I've tried running as admin and that doesn't seem to make a difference. Not sure where to go from here. Any advice would be appreciated.

I used to have root access using the Noob way and I was sure to have disabled OTA with their mod too. Anyways, I lost root when an update went through. Anyways, I did the above and I didn't have to do the last step after the 2 reboots, I ran root check and it verified that I have access. Thanks.

Default works great, but no superuser app

I am able to go through all the steps, seems as though everything is fine, but when the end comes, I have no superuser app on the device. Is it possible it is hiding somewhere besides the app window?
i have the kindle hd 7 with 7.4.6
