So, have you got your hands on the latest Amazon Kindle Fire HD already, and want to explore and push it to its full potential? Folks at RootzWiki has taken the liberty and released a guide on how to do that. Before we start, Rooting is what jailbreaking is to iOS, and if you don’t know what rooting is, than you must spend a few hours and read about it. Before we start, backup your device and all the data.

Disclaimer: Programmerfish will not be held responsible if you brick or break your device, do it at your own risk and always backup.

The guide assumes that you have ADB installed, if not then download android SDK and install it from OS 2.3 and above, after that; follow the following steps:

Step 1: Enable ADB from Settings – Security

Step 2: Download, extract the contents and run the executable file. Link to the “zip” can be found below.

Step 3: Download, extract it contents to reveal the system folder. Within that Superuser.apk and su files would be used to root our device, download the zip from links below.

Step 4: Copy the extracted files from Superuser folder and place them in p”platform-tools” under the directory you installed Android SDK.

Step 5: Connect your Kindle fire to your PC, Launch terminal or command prompt, navigate to platform-tools folder wher you installed the Android-SDK.

Step 6: Enter the following commands one by one:

adb shell 
 rm -r /data/local/tmp 
 ln -s /data/ /data/local/tmp 
adb reboot
adb shell 
 echo ‘ro.kernel.qemu=1′ > /data/local.prop 
adb reboot
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /system 
 adb push su /system/xbin/su 
 adb shell 
 chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su 
 chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su 
 rm /data/local.prop 
adb reboot
adb install Superuser.apk

That’s it, to see if your device was successfully listed, check applications and you shall find Superuser application. You can head over to Rootzwiki if you get stuck during the process.
