How to root Kindle fire HD

The newest Amazon’s Kindle fire HD is shipping with locked boot-loaders. It would not prevent the devices to start with a method to root which already exist and go.

This method is confirmed for Fire HD 7, but you have to go on all new versions that are based on ICS.

This exploit is actually based on that which was found on the Transformer Prime in ICS by sparkym3.

First you need to download SU:

  • Download

After you download the SU file, the next step is to extract the contents and pull SU from the next patch /system/bin/ and SuperUser.apk  from /system/app/ and put them in the new directory from where you will be  working.

After this step, the next step is to execute the following commands:

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

abd 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

After you have executed all this commands, normally you should have the root access.

If you have any difficulty in the process, feel free to contact the support thread on RootzWiki
