Hi!

Today, while doing my daily reading blogs, I found an article by El Android Libre (in spanish) of an app for rooting Android devices quickly, so I decided to try it on my own and effectively, the application success to root my Fire HD 6!. His name is KingRoot. I'm very excited, it worked, and so far I have not noticed errors in the operation of my tablet (at least, today). I could say that this is the ultimate solution to root the Fire HD 6.

WARNING: This is a Chinese application, so I can not guarantee that it 100% safe to use . IF YOU INSTALL THIS, IT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BUGS, BOOTLOOPS OR SOFTBRICKS.. :confused:

Antivirus information:
If the antivirus software on your tablet shows this application as a virus, it is evident: for root you device, this app made a series of exploits to the operating system, and obviously the antivirus will display warnings before or during the process

I hope this can be useful to someone.

This process is not yet totally safe and we have very little information. Indeed, it is possible to root the Fire HD 6/7, but there's a very high risk of the device is unable to boot.

Unroot instructions:

  1. Open the KingUser app
  2. Press the Settings button (upper right corner)
  3. Then press the "Remove Permission Root" option
  4. Confirm and wait a few minutes.
  5. Reboot

Trying it on my HD7 now. Are we forced to use the king superuser or can we switch to superSu after?
The SU binary will be saved in the /system/bin folder after rooting the Fire HD 6, so I think that while this binary is not deleted you can use any other app for root management like SuperSu.

I seem to have lost root on reboot though

Or maybe it's because I un-installed the app?

Now to figure out how to get the Play Store working...

So what does the development road look like from here? Do we need a custom recovery before any roms start coming?

Thanks for this, I am excited to get home and play with my tablet!

Has anyone successfully installed the Google Play Store?
Unfortunately, no. Android root stuff isn't something I'm too familiar with. I think we've still got a long way to go...
It seems you need to install an advanced recovery. The recovery that is built into our Fire does not allow flash apps, only allows to make a factory rese ... :eek:

The problem is that if you installed a wrong recovery, can bricking the system. Not sure if CWM Recovery works here.

I'm wondering how similar this Kindle is to the previous version software wise. Maybe some of the older methods will work now we have root?

This is the situation right now:

  1. It is now possible to root the Fire HD 6 (and 7, as I'm reading)
  2. The root is persistent while you don't uninstall the KingRoot app.
  3. For now, you can not install the SuperSU app (throws an error)
  4. Installing System Tuner Pro gives you the ability to uninstall system applications, review the logs of the kernel, modify the file build.prop, among other things (Other apps can also be used for do this...).
  5. It is not possible (for now) install Gapps until to find an advanced recovery that it works with this tablet. Despite this, you can install some Google apps like YouTube, Google, and Google Search taking an alternative way. Read this thread for more information:

(Yes, there is still road ahead ...)
