I have just put the finishing touches on an automated version of this for those not so technical. I shall upload it to the kindle fire forum. To the OP, feel free to make a video with the new tool once I have posted it.

Sounds great. I'll make a video using your tool, and then I'll just post it along with my long hand version.

Thanks for the continuing efforts. The community appreciates it!

EDIT: Since I do not have a kindle fire, would somebody let me know what ROM version this works on so that I may post it.

I was referencing the Kindle's ROM version as opposed to what version of android it is built on. This should be something like v7.1.5 which is the latest version that I see on the amazon update site.

Wifi Broken After Root
Hey Guys,

I successfully rooted my Kindle Fire HD using the tools found in this thread, then successfully installed Google services and the Play Store. Worked fine for about an hour, then I noticed I no longer had a WIFI connection. I went to Settings and saw that WIFI was turned OFF and that it could not be turned back on. Shut down for a couple of hours to let the WIFI radio cool off, but had no luck when I turned the Kindle back on.

So I did a factory reset on the device. Now I have no WIFI and can't even set up the device with my profile since there's no internet access.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!
Allen F.

I warned folks not to mess with this stuff without the ability to backup. I hope you find a way to resolve this.
