I have the kindle 7 HD 3ed(p48wvb4) gen and I get Mount: permission denied (are you rooted), this options dose not seems to work for all kindle devices.

I have tired all options here and also modded versions of the run me it just looks at me and says ya right, hoping to get Fire OS Distro off this device and go with a nice stock rom anyone got any ideas lol

I rooted other devices using Kingo http://www.kingoapp.com/android-root.htm.

I found that my Kindle Fire HD (UK original) loses root for some reason once or twice a year so I figured when it came to re-rooting it that I'd try Kingo there too.

It worked, and really it is simple and foolproof - you connect your device, it detects the device status and type, downloads what it needs, does the job, confirms that it's done and that's it. You don't need to do anything other than bite your fingernails and watch.

Worked on my Kindle Fire 7" (not HD) version with 7.5.1. Had to insert a few more pauses into the batch file though, for some reason on all my PC's randomly ignore pauses in batch files unless there's two of them, but in the end it worked. (if anyone knows why pauses get ignored tell me please)

Running into root failure

I am also running into the Mount: permission denied (are you rooted) block
I am running a Kindle 7" HD 4th Generation and factory OS 4.5.1
I attempted to root with Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v31 _v33 and _v36, which the farthest I was able to get was that error message, which it continued and prompted me to restore the data, but failed to root successfully.

I also attempted Kingo ROOT, which failed, and requested my email for when the program has the ability to root this device.

Any suggestions? I even attempted putting more pauses, with no change that I could tell.

I have the same problem, the device has also done a new update since this post so I am not sure if it will be rootable any time soon I am really getting pissed with people locking us out of android like this, the device is ours , yes they made it but we as the end user should have the right to hack the hell out of it, I am really not sure how or why they're OK to do this.

I just want a nice running device and a stock android OS would do this very well, even no-make android devices now try and lock us from modding the devices, the OS is open source there not paying any rights to google for using it so this really should be a hardware war based on stock OS so we can pick what we want not lets cut up the OS and limit the user.

Sorry turned into a rant lol but yes I have tried all this and there was a tool to downgrade the kindle what does not work not eva.

Kindle Fire 7 (D025) running 7.5.1.

ADB drivers are installed; shows up as ADB in device manager; also says "USB Connected" on the device.

All scripts just stop at "Connect ADB device". Occasionally I get "adb is out of date. Killing..." Then a daemon successful message; but nothing.

I've tried different versions, different USB ports. Nothing.

I originally used this method (in this thread) for rooting my KFHD (UK original) and found (nothing to do with the method) that approx every 6 months it loses root. I had rooted other devices using Kingo and thought I'd try that instead because it's free and totally automated - you just plug in your Kindle, Kingo tells you its status and offers to root it, you say GO and it does it all for you. Kingo can unroot it too. I found it worked equally well on my KFHD and I don't have to follow any procedure. I really like that even though I'm a software engineer of 42 years standing and can do complex procedures standing on my head - why bother when I can get an automated solution that works flawlessly?

I hope this advice helps you out.

Just Google KINGO and you'll find it.

Kind Regards
Steve

Stuck on step 8

I follow exactly up to step 8 where i backup my data, then press enter on the computer after having the number 1 selected from the previous step.

After pressing enter this is what happens,

======================================================================
= 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 =
= (14.12.2013) v33 =
======================================================================

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

x) Unroot

Make a choice: 1
Please connect Device with enabled USB-Debugging to your Computer
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *


At this point nothing happens thereafter, no function or option to restore my data?
is that function suppose to be in the cmd function? because there is no option on my kindle to restore any information unless i do a factory reset first.
What am i doing wrong here?

When using Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v17 i get the restore screen on my other devices but when i plug my fire hd 7 in i get the "waiting for you to plug in your USB debug enabled device" But it is already enabled, i revealed the hidden developers options then enabled ADB. To no avail, when i use the Root_with_Restore_by_Bin4ry_v33 version i randomly get the outdated server or it will run the course without actually restarting the kindle.

I followed all of the steps but when i got down to step 11. superuser wasn't on my device and my root analyzer said my device is not rooted. I have the kindle fire HD 7 (4th generation). I don't know what version the 4th generation is or what firmware it has.

Kindle is acting bad afterwards

Hey guys, I just got this program, and I followed all of the directions, and after the first reboot, the kindle fire was totally nonfunctional, after a second manual reboot, it kept flashing on and off, and after a third reboot, it is painfully slow. This seems like a really good and reliable root. I just factory reset it, and it seems to be rebooting okay. Is there anything I can do to make this root work?:confused::confused::confused:
Thanks,
DiamondBoyTech

I followed this step by step. I can't for the life of me get this to work. Kindle Fire HD 7 with 7.4.6. I just get a message please connect device with enable USB-Debugging to your computer. It is connected though.

Edit: Restarted my computer in hopes that did something but not really. I get the same message. Then daemon not started. Then starting daemon. And then nothing.

---------- Post added at 04:28 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:04 PM ----------

FYI V32 of the binary method didn't work, using V31 allowed me to root without a problem.

Thanks!

Thank you for this info. This fixed my issues.

After first reboot I get a permissions denied during mount. Any idea how to fix this?

I did this on linux with Bin4ry method v36, but I suspect windows may be a similar case. My suspicion is that the 'backup/restore' exploit being used in this root method is somehow fixed in newer versions of adb, so if you don't use the bundled version you will be out of luck.

First, I had to change all of the
Code:
wait #
commands in RunMe.sh to
Code:
sleep #
.

Then I had to go into the stuff directory and make adb executable:

Code:
chmod a+x stuff/adb

Then, it seems like the bundled adb in the 'stuff' folder doesn't support the Kindle Fire. So I had to make a new file and restart adb:

Code:
echo "0x1949" >> ~/.android/adb_usb.ini
stuff/adb devices

Then the RunMe.sh script worked.

    Bit of a noob when it comes to the Kindle Fire. Not trying to flash a full rom or anything, just want to achieve root.

    Have looked at a few others that were for the OS 7.4.3 both the Bin4ary method and the thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2096888. The device updated itself to 7.4.6 using OTA just the other night and is currently running that.

    Using Windows 7 (64bit) I have started with as clean a slate as I know how and followed the steps listed below.

    1. I downloaded the files in Step 1.

    2. Extracted the files.

    3. I've removed any Kindle drivers both from the Device Manager as well as the Programs & Features found in the Control Panel. I've actually tried this twice with the Kindle connected, and with the Kindle disconnected. Both resulting with no Kindle drivers showing.

    4. The dropbox link is broken, but I was able to download the KindleDrivers.exe from the Google Drive link and install them.

    5. Kindle was already set with ADB Enabled from previous attempts.

    6. Kindle connected, shows under Portable Devices - I have noticed others saying that it should have it's own actual Kindle Fire listing in the devices and not be a subsection of Portable Devices. This method mentions nothing of that really so I continued to the next step.

    7. This is where it stops. Runme.bat loads fine and I chose Option 1, and then it just sits there with "Please connect Device with USB-Debugging to your computer" and that's it. The Kindle connects, shows in both Device Manager and Explorer. I can technically browse the Kindles file structure on the PC in Explorer.

    Step 8 says to select the option "Backup My Data" - but I cannot find any option to backup the device as shown in the screens. The only "backup" option that shows is to sync it to the cloud. Where is this option to be found or have I missed a step that would have included this option somewhere?

    I should note that running "adb devices" from a command line loads the ADB daemon and lists no devices connected before putting me back at a C:\ prompt. I had downloaded the full ADB SDK with all tools etc. from the Android development site.

    As others have gotten this to work in 5minutes with minimal hair pulling, I am confused as to which point I'm going wrong.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance!
