Unlikely a fault of flashfire but after completing all the processes and installing cyanogenmod I cannot use 'Developer Options' at all. I mean, I can bring them up but turning on USB Debugging does not stick at all. Also when I switch of developer options they completely disappear off the face of the settings menu. Very strange and cannot find any similar reported searching on google. Has anyone on here experienced a similar issue?

Hey!
Just did downgrade from yesterday purchased german Fire from 5.13 to 5.12.
I did everything from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS maybe someone will find my adb sideloading experience helpfull.

You should start with adb and fastboot installation:
Code:
sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot
then create list of udev rule for most common devices plus Amazon Fire.
Hit in the terminal:
Code:
sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
and copy paste the following:

HTML Code:

then
Code:
sudo adb kill-server
sudo adb server-start
And finally
Code:
adb devices
should show your Amazon Fire.

All the rest as RootJunky repfectly and clear described in his "How to Firmware Restore or Unbrick your Amazon Fire 5th gen Tablet" video:

- root boot
- adb sideload <path to 5.12.bin>
- reboot
- Done!

I just successfully downgraded 5.14>5.12, and successfully used almost every every feature of this Supertool. Thank OP for making it so easy.

I'm stumped. Can't get Kingroot going on my 2nd Fire. Both shipped with 5.1.3. The first one was no problem. Downgrade to 5.12, kingroot just worked.

this 2nd tablet just doesn't want to run Kingroot. I've sideload downgraded it several times to 5.1.2. I've wiped /data and /cache after donwgrading. It's not registered to my amazon account.

Kingroot crashes at about 17% and the device reboots. Using the latest kingroot apk, also tried using the kingroot apk in the super tool.

I get this in the log:

E/ContextImpl( 547): Implicit intents with startService are not safe: Intent { act=com.tencent.qqpimsecure.TMS_LITE_SERVICE (has extras) } android.content.ContextWrapper.bindService:564 com.kingroot.kinguser.aem.run:86 java.lang.Thread.run:818
W/ActivityManager( 453): Unable to start service Intent { act=com.tencent.qqpimsecure.TMS_LITE_SERVICE (has extras) } U=0: not found

It's definitely downgraded:

My Fire had 5.1.3 on it too, I downgraded it to 5.1.2 and rooted with Kingroot v4.92. The first couple of tries it didn't work. The third try it ran until 20-something % and it reboot failing to root. I re-run the app a couple of times without rebooting and then the tablet rebooted by itself, finally acquiring the root privileges.

I enabled wi-fi only after having launched the app, immediately before it started looking on the net for data.

Hope it helps.

I just managed to get my Fire rooted, but I'm having trouble finding one of the two possible options:

A) I want to install the APKs for Live Wallpaper and Voice Typing; both are showing uninstalled at the moment
but ideally:
B) I'd like to find a replacement ROM for Kitkat or Lollipop to replace FireOS with.

The tablet has successfully been rooted and really only two features are non-functional thus far (the links I found to the solutions on the net were from 2 years back and expired), but other than that it's ready. I have the supertool in and Flashfire is installed.

Can anyone point me to where to grab a replacement OS? Thanks!
