I am not responsible for any bricked devices or any other damage do your Kindle Fire, SD Cards, or yourself.

Steps:
1. Using RootJunky's SuperTool, root your Fire then install FlashFire
2. Download CM12.1 from here.
3. Follow the instructions listed.
4. Profit

To re-root your tablet or enable ADB:
1. Go to settings
2. Scroll to the bottom, tap on About Tablet.
3. Tap on build number until it says "You have enabled developer settings."
4. Go back and open Developer Options.
5. You now have the options for rooting and ADB.

Just tried it out. Worked perfectly! Went from Fire 5.3.1 to CM12.1 successfully.
Thanks for the simplified tutorial!

Kingroot from the Super tool keeps failing for my Fire on 5.3.1.0. Frustrating. Can't even get passed that step.

Try doing factory reset, then use the supertool without loging into your amazon account

Worked perfect!

Edit: Just a short question after installing CM12.1, my device isn't rooted anymore? How to root it again in order to get Flashfire working? Or ist TWRP automatically installed?

- enable developer options (Google for procedure)
- locate/enable root toggle under developer options
- no twrp; must use FlashFire as needed

I wanted to do this but IDK how to find my firmware version. My kindle has had updated disabled ads removed and all that for a while now.

Tried that and gave root to apps & adb but I still can't install SuperSU nore use FlashFire (no root)?
