LBE is a security software. And good news is the problem disappeared after I clean the cookie and connect to another network router. Now, my kindle fire HDX 8.9 is rooted normally. Thanks a lot.

With this rooting method, you do can install google market(following an additional tutorial). Once you have market installed, you wont be able to install apps through market, you will have to sideload. I have done that and all google apps work with no problem...

It comes down to what you use it for. If you have Amazon Prime, Fire OS is perfect. For me I can care less. I have the HDX 7". I have Hashcode's TWRP recovery installed and made a backup of my ROM and running it from a rom slot. Just waiting to install custom ROM's. The bootloader is still locked and may stay that way for a while. But, with safestrap it adds a boot recovery menu.
Hash is working on porting safestrap to the 8.9" but for now it is ONLY on the 7".

How do i rate the kindle fire hdx 8.9 ?
with all my google apps up and working i give it 4 and a half stars out of 5.
the hardware is amazing, the darn thing is ultra thin and overall, is very fast/snappy.

Is the fire OS a big drawback ?
well, the only 3 thing that so far nag me, are
- the fact that you cant bluetooth-pair the tab with another device (my S4 for example) to do Bluetooth tethering.
- The other thing is, at least with my own Bluetooth jaybird x-buds earphones, that when i am listening to music and i turn off the screen, the music starts horribly lagging.
- The darn nav bar prevents me of fully seeing the landscape thumb-keyboard (3rd party app) layout.
So basically, in my case at least, fire OS is nothing more than a small nuisance, which i will get rid of once custom roms make their appearance.

Taking into consideration all efforts provided on these threads to improve/costumize the software capabilities for this device, IMHO, i believe it is a darn good investment.

1: Download the adb driver and install it to your computer.
2: Connect the Kindle to a computer. Then Enable adb on the Kindle in Settings --> Device
3: On your computer goto Control Panel ---> System ---> Device Manager. Look under the Other devices tab. Right-Click Android and click update driver. Then click Browse My Computer. Click Let me pick from a list of device drivers. Scroll down and select Kindle Fire. Hit next until the driver installs.
4: Download the root14.zip file, unpack
5: Run the runme.bat Follow along. That's it!

At this point you should be rooted. You can now install SuperSU and Busybox on your HDX. If not connecting in the batch file make sure you have the adb drivers installed first! If not root, reply. Remember this is tested to work on Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" 14.3.1.0

Thanks goes to: fi01 for finding the bug, Jcase for making the exploit, slayer615 for making the batch bundle.

NOTICE:
If the Hdx is updated past this point Amazon may patch the bug and so you loose root.

To block Amazon auto-updates:
Download and install Android Firewall (root required first)
Once installed white list all the apps you want wifi to use or just all of them, open the set custom script option.
Enter:
Code:
iptables -A "droidwall" -s 72.21.194.208 -j "droidwall-reject"
iptables -A "droidwall" -s 176.32.195.233 -j "droidwall-reject"
iptables -A "droidwall" -s 72.21.195.233 -j "droidwall-reject"
Hit ok and that should block Amazon from pushing updates to your Kindle HDX

THIS IS 100% WORKING ON VERSION 14.3.1.0
Please leave a response how it worked!

-NOTICE- If your browser flags the root14.zip file it is because of the packed adb.exe file.
Hi guys, i followed the steps and here's what i get when I run runme.bat. Can someone tell me what i did wrong? thanks.
