    Amazon's Kindle Fire Gets One-Click Root Access, 3rd Party App Install, & ADB Access


    Here is a little reminder that the new Amazon Kindle Fire officially shipped today, and even more importantly, it has already been rooted, and we have some instructions for side-loading 3rd party apps, and ADB usage!

    Updated: Our original source for this story was right here in the forums, death2all110. We want to give a shout out to him as a thank you for sharing this great info. Here's a quote from his post with adb & root instructions:
    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.

    go here: [APP]SuperOneClick v2.2 (now with zergRush and su 3.0) - xda-developers

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

    Enjoy!
    Below is another list of instructions culled from several sources to give you an exhaustive source of info.

    First, to install 3rd party apps, the process is pretty simple.
    You just have to allow installation from unknown sources in Settings -> Device menu.
    Second, the root instructions come courtesy of XDA Developers. Here is an instruction set to root the device:
    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.

    go here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show….php?t=803682a

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

    Enjoy!
    Finally, here is the breakdown of gaining ADB (Android Debug Bridge) access so you can dig deeper into your Android device to copy files, install apps, read logs, run shell commands, and more. Here's the instructions straight from our friends over at AndroidPolice,
    You will need the Android SDK installed and then add the Vendor ID for Amazon's Lab126 (0x1949) to the adb_usb.ini file.

    You can find detailed instructions for Windows here and for Mac here.

    If you want to use ADB to install apps, be sure to allow installation from unknown sources as discussed above.
    Now power-users and tweakers can play to their heart's content. At $199.99, this customizable little device is starting to look pretty appealing. What do you think?
