Having problems trying to root my 2012 Kindle Fire HD ... please help.
I won a mint Kindle Fire HD off eBay for cheap because it gives an error when trying to register it with an Amazon account. I knew I could root it and put a custom ROM on it so that is why I bought it. I have rooted and put custom ROMs on about nine original Kindle Fires but I am having problems with this.
I am following the guide [ROOT][HOW TO] Root the Kindle Fire HD and 2 with Windows - Noob (Simple) Version and I am stuck at the point of ROOT STEP 12 where I am to option 15 to root the Kindle. The actual line of Option 15 reads - Reboot The Kindle In To Fastmode <Preferred Mode> and I get this error:
I have tried 16 also to no effect. What am I missing here? The drivers installed properly and it sees the Kindle Fire HD when I plug it in. It said the ADB driver installed, is there a way to verify it?
Should I even be using this guide or is there a better one?
