Kindle Fire ADB and Root

Do you have your new kindle fire yet? If yes, have you run ADB commands on it? How about we go one step further. Did you root it yet. That’s right folks the Kindle Fire can be rooted using SuperOneClick which has been around for quite a while already. Many of you remember SuperOneClick from the OG Droid days. Amazon has also already released the source code for the Fire.
One of the perks of a device releasing with a little bit older version of Android is that they are easier to root. Manufacturers are taking more and more steps to make it harder to root with newer releases of Gingerbread. The B&N Nook color saw a lot of developer backing when it was first released and in turn helped the sales numbers for that little “tablet”. Could it be that Amazon saw this and wasn’t worried about people rooting the Fire? With most of the services requiring the Amazon apps piracy of books and even the music would be troublesome. The cloud is actually helping them secure the content on the device. The source code release also lends to allowing people to see the inner workings and should help speed up ROM development. If you already have a Kindle Fire are you thinking about rooting it? I have not seen any type of recovery options yet which is something I recommend you wait for before you start messing with your device. Just having the original source code may not be enough to save the device if you brick it. Once there is a recovery option whether it be using something like fastboot or CWM even, there should be a lot more in store for this little power house. The source code can be found on Amazon’s help pages by clicking here. SuperOneClick has a link in the source article or can be found all over multiple forums out there.

The team over at Droid-Life had this pretty picture sent to them. The same person who has been dumping bits and pieces from the new Motorola DROID RAZR has confirmed that the existing root method that works on any Motorola running Gingerbread does still work on the RAZR. When this “exploit” first came out I figured it was going to be very hard for Motorola to patch because of how the file system is affected. Read more: DROID RAZR Rooted Already
