What if I just want to root and be able to get the playstore and get rid of the ads. I like the fire OS and want the updates. I have an N10 rooted like that. And please don't tell me to read every post here. I've done the search. Took a while to even find this thread
Only a newb to the fire OS. Is this what I need to do that?
It'll apply root and Safestrap. It can also disable updates. There is a link at the top of the OP to install the Gapps. All of that is laid out in the OP. Outside of that, I would recommend disabling updates as you don't know when they might break root. You can always choose to update or not afterwards.
No, you need a rooted device.
I need screenshots of your issue. "waiting for device..." means the adb driver isn't installed. This might help you, I made this driver guide for my older scripts. ALSO, you may need to "safely remove hardware' before install the driver. I had a similar issue a while ago.Anything I try to do, I get "waiting for device..." as if it can not find my HDX 7. I have adb driver installed. And I enabled adb on the pad. I tried reboot and still same thing. I am on 184.108.40.206. My pc is windows XP. when i connect to hdx, it does show a pop up. I can copy files back and forth between pc and pad. Any idea? Thanks.

Not to be mean but I know very little java/c. I'm good with configuring networks and scripting. Everyday I'm learning more and more about android. Hell, yesterday I learned about logcat and launching apps with am start and intents. I'm putting all I can into learning and gaining a bigger skill set. I'm all ears.
