Fire Toolbox V11.1

All-In-One Toolbox for Fire Tablets!
═══════════════════════════════════



What is the Fire Toolbox?


The FIre Toolbox is a collection of useful tweaks that can be applied to Amazon's Fire Tablets. The Toolbox aims to turn a stock Amazon Tablet into what the user wants it to be, and to enhance the Android experience. The project aims to help users who are less tech-savy, or those who want an easy, reliable, and fast method take full control over their devices without having to run the risk of rooting their tablets. With a clickable UI, and lightning-fast performance you can return the power back into your hands.

Device Compatibility:
  • Amazon Fire 8/8+ (2020)
  • Amazon Fire 10 (2019)
  • Amazon Fire 7 (2019)
  • Amazon Fire 8 (2018)
  • Amazon Fire 10 (2017)
  • Amazon Fire 8 (2017)
  • Amazon Fire 7 (2017)
  • Amazon Fire HD8 (2016)
  • Amazon Fire HD10 (2015)
  • Amazon Fire HD8 (2015)
  • Amazon Fire HD7 (2015)
  • Amazon Fire HD7 (2014)
  • Amazon Fire HD6 (2014)
In this forum, you may hear the word "generation" being used when talking about Fire Tablets. Just know that "generation" effectively means the same as "what year was the tablet manufactured?". This may seem confusing and as a result a reference table has been provided for you below.


Getting Started:


Getting the Toolbox up and running with your tablet is surprisingly a very easy procedure. The only thing required is for you to enable Developer Options and ADB on your tablet. So, without further ado, let's get started.

At this point, please read the section below, and make sure to follow the correct guide that is made for your tablet on how to set up the device so it works with the Toolbox.

FIRE HD 7, 8, 10 (2018 - 2020) Guide:

1. Turn on your tablet and go to Settings > Device Options > About Fire Tablet and tap on the Serial Number until you unlock Developer Options.

2. Press the back button and find the new Developer Options and toggle it on.

3. Scroll down till you find USB Debugging and enable it.

4. Download the latest version of the Toolbox from the Downloads section of this page and install it onto your PC.

5. *Plug your tablet into your computer and allow Windows to install the necessary drivers (if you haven't done so already).

* If you are on Windows 8.1 or below the drivers for "Fire" WILL FAIL. This is normal and is to be expected.
6. Open the Toolbox and wait for it to setup the environment and start ADB (It may appear that the Toolbox is frozen, just please give it a second).

7. If you are on Windows 8.1 or below the Toolbox will inform you that additional driver setup is required and will ask for your permission to download and install the required drivers. Click the "Yes" button, wait for the download to finish and follow the driver setup. If this for some reason doesn't work, please follow this guide to manually install the drivers.

8. At this point, If drivers are setup properly... the Toolbox will inform you that the "device isn't authorized. Please authorize your device now."

9. On your tablet, you should see a new prompt asking if you want to Allow USB Debugging and should show the computer's RSA key fingerprint. Tick the box that says "Always allow from the computer" and hit ok.

That's it, the Toolbox should recognize your tablet and will take you to the main menu. Enjoy!




FIRE HD 6, 7, 8, 10 (2014 - 2017) Guide:

1. Turn on your tablet and go to Settings > Device Options and tap on the Serial Number until you unlock Developer Options.

2. Find the new Developer Options and tap on it.

3. Scroll down till you find Enable ADB and enable it.

4. Download the latest version of the Toolbox from the Downloads section of this page and install it onto your PC.

5. *Plug your tablet into your computer and allow Windows to install the necessary drivers (if you haven't done so already).

* If you are on Windows 8.1 or below the drivers for "Fire" WILL FAIL. This is normal and is to be expected.

6. Open the Toolbox and wait for it to setup the environment and start ADB (It may appear that the Toolbox is frozen, just please give it a second).

7. If you are on Windows 8.1 or below the Toolbox will inform you that additional driver setup is required and will ask for your permission to download and install the required drivers.

9. On your tablet, you should see a new prompt asking if you want to Allow USB Debugging and should show the computer's RSA key fingerprint. Tick the box that says "Always allow from the computer" and hit ok.

Frequently Asked Questions:

» I don't see my tablet listed in the supported devices, how can I request support to be added?
* For the requested tablet to be supported, we need a little more information from you in order to add support. Please download this .zip file, extract the folder within the zip to the desktop, and run the Identify.bat (make sure your tablet is plugged into the PC) file to get the code name of the device. Once the code name is found by the tool, press any key to copy it to the clipboard. Now reply to the forum with the code name, and the tablet's complete name. See the example below for reference:
Tablet: Amazon Fire HD8 (2018)
Device's Codename: karnak
* Please note that any devices produced before 5th generation unfortunately cannot receive support. I'd recommend visiting the forum for your device and rooting if possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.

» What does the error "one of more ADB enabled devices are connected. please remove all devices except a supported amazon fire device." mean?
This error occurs when more then one ADB enabled devices are connected to your computer. Because multiple devices are connected, the Toolbox isn't sure which device to send the commands to so it simply closes and asks that you remove all ADB devices except the Fire Tablet. You may see the following terms being used in the PLUGGED IN list the Toolbox provides:
Code:
G0W0xxxxxxxxxxxxx
This is likely your Amazon Fire Tablet. Furthermore, any connected device connected via a usb cable to your computer will likely be a single string (such as the one shown above) and will not contain any special characters.
Code:
emulator-xxxx
This likely means an Android emulator is running on your system. Ensure programs like Bluestcks, Nox, Android Studio, Genymotion, LDPlayer, Virtualbox (emulating android), etc aren't running in the background while attempting to use the Toolbox.
Code:
192.168.0.xx
This means a device is connected to your computer via TCP/IP (wireless debugging) and has ADB debugging (USB Debugging) enabled. Ensure all devices that run Android in your household are either disconnected from the network temporary, or ADB Debugging (USB Debugging) is disabled. Examples of Android devices that may have ADB enabled: Fire TV, Android TV, phones, tablets, etc.

» How can I remove a Google Account from my tablet?
Because of the missing accounts section in the Settings app it will be a little more difficult to remove Google Accounts directly from the tablet. The easiest way that I've found is to visit this page: https://myaccount.google.com/security, sign-in to your Google Account, scroll down to "Your Devices" and click the "Manage devices" button. From the list of devices find your tablet and in the upper right-corner click the 3-dot icon and from the list select "Sign out".

» How can I run the Toolbox on Linux?
As of now the Toolbox will not run on Linux natively. However, the Toolbox is being completely re-written in Visual Basic and will hopefully be able to be ran on Linux in the near future. At the moment, the best way to run the Toolbox on Linux is to use VMWare and emulate Windows.

» Will this tool root my tablet?
Unfortunately, the Toolbox is not yet capable of rooting any of the supported devices. There are plans to include root methods for a few select tablets but will take some time before they are ready.

» Why is the Toolbox being marked as a virus?
The Toolbox (and it's installer) isn't signed with a software license and therefore your computer isn't sure who the publisher is which may worry some anti-viruses, effectively producing a false positive that flags the Toolbox as a virus. The same issue goes for Windows smart screen as well. As always, I take your security and privacy VERY seriously! If you do not feel safe with installing the Toolbox due to virus concerns, I totally understand. It is always up to the user and their judgment! :D

» Where did the Changelog go?
Due to the changelog's length it has been given its own post entirely. You can find it here.

» I found a bug/issue in the Toolbox, how do I report it?
You may leave a post on this forum. Please include the error/issue and possible ways to replicate it, then copy down the error information (if the Toolbox presents any) and paste it as a post here on the forum. If you could also share a screenshot or video that would also help greatly. In addition, please make sure to also include what tablet you have and what tool the error is coming from and I will do my best to fix it ASAP. Thanks!

2018 HD 8, did the remove lockscreen ads. went through its process. said sucess. nothing changed, and nothing in the downloads folder
This tool is designed to install Automate, push Amazon Lockscreen Ads Remover V4.5 to tablet, and install all permissions required to run the script. Now, to get it all set up and working you need to enter Automate and open the settings. From here you are looking for an option that's titled "Run on system startup" make sure you enable this option. Now, for installing the adblocker you can import it into Automate (Flow is found on your internal storage or sdcard) Or you can download the script from the automate community. Refer to this forum if you need assistance (skip steps 1-5 because they have already been done automatically by the toolbox). Sorry I can't write up a detailed post, I'm at a family gathering at the moment. Just let me know if you need further assistance.

Great tool! However, after "removing everything Amazon", it seems to have also removed parental controls which screws up some things. I get "the requested action is not permitted. Check parental controls settings and retry" when I try to download offline translation functionality in Google Translate. When I go to the the tablets settings>parental controls, it won't open. Also seems to not allow install of Amazon related apps like kindle and prime video.

It's kind of annoying right? So, whats happening is Its coded to remove Parental Controls but I've just discovered it isn't able to because Parental Controls is a Device Administrator which you can't uninstall even with ADB without deactivating it first. As a result, I will update the tool so it doesn't remove anything related to parental controls until we can find a way to disable it. However, chances are kind of slim. I don't think its possible without root but we will see. I'm also thinking about a restore option for the "Remove Everything Amazon" tool that returns the amazon system apps so you don't have to do a factory reset. :)

Pls let us know when it's updated I would love to remove amazon bloat and free up some space

Hmmm, I'm not sure about this. I can test it at home and let you know how it goes if you would like. However, it would be a few hours from now if your interested.

Will this work on a Kindle Fire 10" Gen 5 version? I've already hacked my wife's 2017 using another more complex path to doing so, but a friend just asked me to hack his Gen 5 10" and I'd love to do it as easily as this. However, a bit nervous if this doesn't allow it.

I think I answered my own question. Using a windows 10 computer, I connected the 10" Fire Gen 5... ran the program... and it continually crashed after initially finding the kindle. I never got the menu with the options. And where does this program unpack itself to once the EXE zip is run?

I believe this may be a bug in the tablet detect section of the code. I know it can read Hd10 (2017), hd8 (2017), and hd (2018) without error. I'm not sure what's going on but I will look into it. Oh and also, a new version of the tool is coming soon!
