For 6.3 see http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=24129239


Please do not reupload/redistribute BurritoRoot2/BurritoRoot3, instead link directly to my hosting. I own the server, it will no go away any time soon. This allows me to update it if a bug is found.


BurritoRoot3 is not opensource, it is free, but it is not free to distribute. Please do not redistribute it.

Tested on 6.2, 6.2.1 and 6.2.2

Disclaimer:
BurritoRoot3 may void your warranty. While it was tested, over and over, a chance of data loss or hardware damage always exists. If something bad happens due to your use of BurritoRoot3, well it is your fault not our's, don't blame any of us.

BurritoRoot3 is an all in one package, to root and install the custom bootlaoder, FireFireFire, onto the KindleFire.

Instructions are pretty plain and simple, however you will have to get adb working on your own (if you have written, or know of adb guides for the Kindle Fire please PM me to list them here).

LINUX GUIDE: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=22067293

What it does:
Gains root, installs superuser, installs su and installs the FireFireFire bootloader.

At this time, we do not have permission to distribute any recovery, once one is available for our use, we will add auto flashing of recovery.

How to use:

adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp

Run app, follow directions given by the app.


Usage example :

[email protected]:~$ adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp <---- This one is important, it may not create BurritoRoot3.bin if this is not done
[email protected]:~$ adb install BurritoRoot3.apk
4897 KB/s (1151520 bytes in 0.229s)
pkg: /data/local/tmp/BurritoRoot3.apk
Success

<go open the app now>

[email protected]:~$ adb shell /data/local/tmp/BurritoRoot3.bin --root

If you already have root, and want to safely install the FireFireFire bootloader, you can use the app, just install, open/close the app then

adb shell am start -a android.intent.action.MAIN -n net.andirc.burritoroot3/net.andirc.burritoroot3.FireFireFire



To install the CWR recovery by DoomLord after gaining root:

Download it, and push it to your Kindle

adb push <filename> /data/local/recovery.img
adb shell dd if=/data/local/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/by-name/recovery

I love you Devs so much. I just got a Kindle today, but as I watched the video your Kindle shows up under Other Devices as if it didn't install the device driver. Mine is installed under portable devices. Can I just update that one or is there a debug mode for the Kindle that I'm missing?

Thanks for all you do!

I'm currently running Ubuntu 11.10(Without access to a windows computer to do so.) And after following the steps within the BurritoRoot I get error: insufficient permissions for device when entering adb root. I've rebooted my kindle and laptop as well as changed usb ports.

I've set it up so that it's acknowledged within /.android. Am I perhaps missing something sdk wise? The usb configuration install for extras within it says Linux isn't compatible. But any insight into this would be appreciated I'm not new to Android or adb for that matter. Things seem to be done differently for the Kindle is all.

Thanks guys. :)

I can not get ADB to recognize the device for the life of me.

I know I have the drivers installed the Fire is recognized as "android composite adb interface" under the Android Phone category in Device manager. But I can not get adb to see it.

"Adb kill-server"
"adb devices"
and it shows no devices attached. Ive done a factory reset on the tablet just to see (knowing it wouldn't make a difference)

Im running Windows XP
if someone could help me out.

Dis this last night and it worked fine. Thanks!

I did have a few minor stumbles though. It seems the newest version of the software changed the name of the superuser app but the guide still uses the old name in the install command. Once I realized this I just changed the name in the command and it went right in.

Also for some reason I couldn't select the text in the adb box on the web page so I had to enter the commands by hand. No big deal but I would have felt more secure if the commands were in simple text so I could have copy/paste them in.

Like I said though everything worked and I have the market installed now. Thanks for the hard work!

I'm having some trouble with mine...I am trying to follow the video instructions to the link but it shows downloading a .android folder and extracting it to my user name on desktop but there is no such link. I have downloaded SDK and installed google usb drivers as well. I have 6.2.1 firmware and downloaded kindleroot_androidpolice.apk and placed on my kindle and I also downloaded superuser-2. I am not able to install the driver to the fire either. I go to my computer, manage, device manager, kindle, update driver software, browse my computer, etc. I have no INF file to choose under my .android folder.

Any help would be appreciated

My sd card is showing up as unmounted and not sure how to remount it. I sent adb remount and it didn't work. Any help would be appreciated.

This tool will attempt to install the correct Drivers for the Kindle Fire.
It will also perform the setup required for adb_usb.ini in .android for you.

The system cannot find the path specified.
The system cannot find the path specified.

Press any key to continue . . .

I tried to install the drivers for the kindle but i receive the above message

did you do install_drivers.bat first ?
take a look:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=20698002&postcount=283
that should correct the path issue


Yes thank you. Moving it to the same as the run.bat seemed to have worked as it shows online now when running the Kindle Fire Utility. I switched it to fast boot but now seems to have been frozen at the kindle fire logo for quite some time now. I heard you have to switch to fastbook to install TWRP first before rooting?

I am not sure if I should attempt to somehow reboot this as it seems to be stuck at the boot up screen

    minor news

    BurritoRoot will be discontinued shortly, replacing with my FireMOD app.

    And you will no longer lose root with OTAs...

    I've searched for a bit and I believe I can do the following but I want to confirm. I am familiar with installing root and custom ROMs on my Captivate but my Kindle Fire is still stock. I want access to the Android market to install apps that I have paid for such as XDA Premium. I have Amazon Prime and access to the lending library which I don't want to lose. I assume I can root with this utility and rootkeeper to unroot (if necessary) to access the lending library and then reroot again to access other apps - correct?

    Sounds right
