Kindle Fire Unbrick Utility is the all-in-one Kindle Fire unbricker. All it does is execute what would be done in the command prompt, but it does it for you.

This looks great. Personally, I wouldn't need this, but I know that there are a lot of people out there who don't have much experience with a command line.

The reason why I made this was exactly for those people that don't have experience with a command line. Up until about 2 months ago, I was one of those people :D

Your download link is bad,

and this looks very, very similar to what I made...

Yup. it does look similar to what you made. The thing is though, it does a completely different thing. I'll be fixing the download link soon, not sure why it's broken...
Also, I did use bits and pieces of your code as models, but nothing more than that.

Thanks to both of you. This here little thing just saved my bacon. I am not a noob exactly but I am not a complete command line expert either, but it all comes together in time. I was stuck in the recovery loop and this helped me out.

Keep Moving Forward,

Also, even though this might look like Kindle Fire Utility, it is not developed/owned by the same person. Aside from that, a special thanks to Vashypooh for allowing me to use some of his code as a model for mine.


Thank you and honorable mentions are always appreciated but sometimes not noticed. Just a thought. Yes I am going to go take a long walk off a short pier, as this is none of my business. But in all honesty if I did not say something it would weigh on my oh so big conscience all night. Cheers.

Just for clarity. Is this just a front end for the different methods for unbricking we have in the forum? I mean, if I have a broken adb ("-exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: no such file or directory (2)) this won´t make any magic, will it?

Edit: Ok, Just read the .bat file and in fact it is a front end. Will not work for me but sure will be useful for many people.

the concept is a good idea - allthrough it's a frontend to known methods

and it is working partially with zergrush - this is'nt working anymore since 6.2.1 !
would suggest to incorporate pokey9000's method for 6.2.1:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1414832

correct me if i'm wrong

nevertheless i think it's a good idea and worth to push it to further releases

too late for me - exchanged a one week old fire - see if they notice it was rooted with the kf utility.

Not a noob at all. Fire was stuck at kf opening screen (no animation) and not recogniozed by adb

would this utility have helped?

Hello, I just tried following this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1351914 SwiftKey to activate on my kindle fire.
Have indicated this as the settings.db changes and after a restart depends on my kindle fire start in the loop.
I've now tried to save my kindle fire with their program, unfortunately without success, and I only see the boot logo.

I've used the Kindle Fire Unbrick Utility.
At 1) stuck at boot logo and confirmed twice with y
is only: unbrick kindle in progress and waiting for device


Hat an idea and someone could help me?

Read the pre-resiquites, and try drivers other than Kindle Fire Utiliy's

Have adb driver again and reinstalled kindle the fire also appears under the Devices and Printers.
When I start up I get KindleUnbrick.bat into the menu and no matter what I select it always comes just "waiting for device".
-- Kindle Fire Utility does not succeed -- :(

Will this work if you aren't bricked just to restore to factory? If so which option should you choose to just set kindlefire back to stock 6.2.1?

If this tool was able to do it, wouldn't I have put an option in? This is for Un-bricking! Not flashing ROMs. Read my original post, and understand what it does before replying, please.

That's a glitch with your drivers, not my tool. What is it labeled as?

I read the op, and I understand what it does do. I just know that on phones I have used the same method to unbrick as I used to flash to stock (ie DroidX sbf unbricks and flashes to stock, Bionic R3leased Root unbricks and restores) I just thought this might work to flash to stock. I'm not a moron.

That being said your utility looks sick. Thanks for the awesome work.

I understand that, but even then, I do have a screenshot of the main menu, which should show what it does. And I know you're not a moron :p

    To all people having driver problems:

    1. Install the Android SDK
    2. Restart your computer
    3. Open Device Manager
    4.Find your kindle, and click "Uninstall Drivers"
    5. Find it again, and then install drivers as "ADB Composite"
    6. Use Kindle Fire Unbrick Utility to fix it
    7. ???
    8. Profit!
