So, all my work to get mine set up is undone, play store is gone, ads are back, etc..the voodoo root protector app failed completely.

Worse, the qemu exploits are not working.

On the plus side, Swype was recoverable with the nook advanced settings tool..

I eagerly await the next method.

Edit: And we're back, Baby! I had success getting root back via the MANY ANDROID method mentioned by bodi524 below..I had to run it twice, but then it was all good. Didn't even have to rerun the qemu bits!

Did the device auto update or you updated hoping for the best? I was reading up that they are going to release an update any day now that will break it pulling the stuff that allows us to exploit root. Mine still has not come in the mail yet. I'm expecting it will be here by Wednesday of next week :( soo long. I'll give it till then for something to be done or it will be shipped back.

Hey there!

I've tried the different Methods to gain root acces aganin after the Update to Version 10.2.3 but without success.
The Problem (while using qemu-method) is the step with build.prop -> "Permission denied".

Ca anybody give a hint how to gain root access again?
Also ca anybody give me a hint, if the original Kindle fire ROMS would work on kindle fire v2?

Im new to Kindle fire, only worked with different HTC-Phones till now, so maybe there is some help? =)

Thanks in advance!

Check post above yours for root. I had to use both methods in that thread. Do not be afraid if the phone is hanging after the first method, the second method brings it through.

Uh oh. 10.2.4 just hit my kindle. I'm going to try to re-root, but it even nailed OTA rootkeeper. Amazon keeps getting smarter. I kinda wish they would just let us enjoy our awesome 7" tablet with gorgeous ips display and leave it alone.

It's bad enough there's no KFU or FFF for the Fire 2 so we're stuck on rooted stock instead of being able to install ICS proper, or jellybean.

Just hit mine too, laptops playing up so going to try again tomorrow, let me know how you get on please agent.

It worked. It took a couple tries, but it worked. Now it's kinda weird though, rather than saying "<app> has been granted root permission" it says now "<app> has been granted root permission for an interactive shell", but it still works.

I'm on that hunt myself. I've installed Droidwall until I find it, but I'd rather just disable the updates.

    Can you pm me a link to where you downloaded and installed without any issues? Thanks, in advance!

    All I did was root it using the link on the first page, then manually copy over every file from gapps then chmod each one. Rebooted and was good to go with root and gapps. Gapps can be grabbed from goo.im/gapps
