Root the Kindle Fire with SuperOneClick [Courtesy of XDA]

With the Kindle Fire’s release, developers at XDA are wasting no time in getting the device rooted. Given the ability to enable sideloading, rooting is inevitable. Over at XDA there is a quick walk-through in setting up ADB on the Fire. Of course this can only be done after one is done installing the Android SDK. Once ADB is set up root is obtainable through the SuperOneClick application.

As of right now there are no custom roms available for the Fire but when they do come out, and they will, you will be one step closer to flashing a new rom. Given the Fire’s specs it will be interesting to see how developers can push this device to its full potential. For those of you who have a Kindle Fire and are wanting to root it, download the SuperOneClick Application here and hit the break for instructions on how to do so courtesy of developer death2all110 over at XDA.  

SuperOneClick Root Instructions:

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!

Sorry for the mess. Its late, and I wanted to type this up so I could crash…

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:

Code:
0x1949

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:

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

save and close

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.

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.

download and run SuperOneClick and choose the “root” option. let it go!

Enjoy!
