Guys, I contacted jcase to make our plea & after initial digging, he kindly got with xda member fi01 & we now have root, once it was compiled by Besups! It only took them 2 days, probably less, but I contacted him this weekend & boy have they come through!

Read the thread, hit thanks & make sure these greats know how much they are truly appreciated!

Three cheers for fi01, jcase & Beaups!

This is great news! Just in time for the long holiday. Is this flashed through stock recovery? If so, how do we get to it on the HDX?

Sorry if this is a stupid question
I'm new to the Kindle scene (but am loving my HDX 8.9). Does having root mean that I will be able to install the Google Play Store?

YAY! I guess I know how I'll be spending this evening when I get off of work! Thanks to the developer for the getting us root! I've been a creeper around the XDA community for quite some time (since the Droid X) and have really appreciated all of the support.

Cool! Looks like a little more help might be needed for the HD7 (2nd Gen), but it's a start.

Did root access fix the issues with wallpapers and widgets not working or is it more complicated than that?
