Hello everybody! I am new to xda so I hope I'm in the right place. Rooting a KF (2013) has proved to be quite challenging for me, also because I am dumb . Anyway I have tried to install the 'Permanent Root with Superuser' via Kindle Fire Utility 0.9.8 but I am not able to. I know that I am missing something but I am too dumb to understand what. I need the help of experts. So, I have run Kindle Fire Utility 0.9.8 and I got this:

HTML Code:
 *****************************************************************

 *****************************************************************

  1  Bootmode Menu
  2  Install Permanent Root with Superuser
  3  Install Latest TWRP Recovery
  4  Install Latest FireFireFire
  5  Extras (Requires Root)
  0  Recheck Device Status


 ADB Status: Online
 Boot Status: Unknown

Please make a selection or hit ENTER to exit:
I have connected my KF Soho to the laptop through the factory cable and I have selected 1, and I got this:

  1  Normal (4000)
  2  Fastboot (4002)
  3  Recovery (5001)
  0  Recheck ADB/Fastboot Mode


 ADB Status: Online
 Boot Status: Unknown

Please make a selection or hit ENTER to return:
Then I have selected 1 and I got this:

HTML Code:
 ***********************************************
 *           Activating Normal (4000)          *
 ***********************************************

The system cannot find the drive specified.
failed to copy 'files\nbmode' to '/data/local/nbmode': Permission denied
Unable to open /data/local/nbmode: No such file or directory
/system/bin/sh: /data/local/nbmode: not found

 The kindle has been told to reboot in Normal Mode.

Press any key to continue . . .
If I select fastboot instead, I get this:

HTML Code:
 ***********************************************
 *         Activating Fastboot (4002)          *
 ***********************************************

failed to copy 'files\fbmode' to '/data/local/fbmode': Permission denied
Unable to open /data/local/fbmode: No such file or directory
/system/bin/sh: /data/local/fbmode: not found

 The kindle has been told to reboot in Fastboot Mode.

Press any key to continue . . .
In both cases my tablet reboots but checking with 'Root Analyzer' I can see that it is not rooted.
I have also tried rooting with Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v30 choosing the 1st option but I get this:

HTML Code:
======================================================================
= This script will root your Android phone with adb restore function =
= Script by Bin4ry (thanks to Goroh_kun and tkymgr for the idea)     =
=             Idea for Tablet S from Fi01_IS01                       =
=                      (01.05.2013) v30                              =
======================================================================

Device type:
1) Normal
2) Special (for example: Sony Tablet S, Medion Lifetab)
3) New Xperia Root by Goroh_kun (Xperia Z, Xperia V [JellyBean] ...)
G) Google Glass Mode (thx Saurik for the ab file)

x) Unroot

Make a choice: 1
Checking if i should run in Normal Mode or special Sony Mode
Please connect your device with USB-Debugging enabled now
Waiting for device to shop up, if nothing happens please check if Windows ADB-drivers are installed correctly!
adb server is out of date.  killing...

Now unlock your device and confirm the restore operation.
Please look at your device and click RESTORE!
If all is successful i will tell you, if not this shell will run forever.
Running ...
At this point, my kindle fire displays a screen where I have to choose between 'Do not restore' and 'Restore my data' and I chose 'Restore my data' but my tablet does not reboot at all and the runme.bat file keeps running forever. I have also tried not to press anything at all on the 'Do not restore/Restore my data' screen and I get this:

HTML Code:
Successful, going to reboot your device in 10 seconds!
Waiting for device to show up again....
Going to copy files to it's place
mount: permission denied (are you root?)
You can close all open command-prompts now!
After reboot all is done! Have fun!
Bin4ry
Press any key to continue . . .
My tablet actually reboots but checking with Root Analyzer I still see the message 'No, your device is not rooted'. What should I do? :'( Ask me all the questions you need and I'll do my best to answer them. Also, please keep in mind that I am not technical therefore explain me things as you would explain them to a quite smart baby Thanks for your help!

Also, I'll write here more details about my device if it is of any help for you guys:
Device model: Kindle Fire HD (3rd generation)
Year: 2013
Bootloader: Uknown
Board: soho
Device: soho
Model: KFSOWI
OS: Fire OS 4.5.5.3
