Amazon Kindle Fire gets rooted


One of XDA Forums members tested to see if the Amazon Kindle Fire is rootable with the SuperOneClick Tool and for his surprise it worked.

death2all110: So I was messing around with different one clicks since I got ADB going on my kindle fire and I was able to Successfully use SuperOneClick 2.2 to root my Kindle Fire!

Here’s what you have to do to acquire permanent root shell on your own 7-inch Kindle Fire slate:

1. To get adb going you must already have the sdk on your machine and used it.

goto: %USERPROFILE%\.android and edit the adb_usb.ini and add this to the end of the file and save:


then go into where you have the sdk at and open the google-usb_driver folder and edit android_winusb.inf and add this to the [Google.NTx86] section and [Google.NTamd64] section:

;Kindle Fire
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006&MI_01

save and close

2. If you have already plugged your kindle into the USB you may have to open device manager and find “Kindle” under other devices and choose the android_winusb.inf file.

3. Turn on Installation of apps from unknown sources: tap the top bar>choose more…(+)>device  open a command prompt and run adb kill-server then try adb devices.. you should see a device listed.

4. go here:….php?t=803682a download and run SuperOneClick and choose the “root” option. let it go!
