Titanium Backup is the primary reason that I want to root Amazon Kindle Fire. Titanium Backup needs root access to backup / restore apps. So how to root Kindle Fire? Very simple, just use SuperOneClick to root Kindle Fire. Really, just one single click.


Root Amazon Kindle Fire with SuperOneClick

Prerequisites

  • Android SDK Development Environment
  • Kindle Fire adb USB driver
  • SuperOneClick

Okay, here is the catch. You need to have Kindle Fire adb USB driver installed first. SuperOneClick v2.3.2 has auto USB driver installation function but I did not try it since I already setup Android SDK Development Environment and Kindle Fire adb USB driver myself. And I prefer this way because they are needed to install CM7 ROM too. How to setup? Follow this guide ~ How to install & setup Android SDK Development Environment? And How to install Kindle Fire adb USB driver?

How to root Kindle Fire?

  1. Launch SuperOneClick.
  2. Connect USB cable to Kindle Fire.
  3. Click Root.
  4. Follow on screen instructions then.
  5. That’s all.

Congrats. You can start using Android applications that require root access from now on like example below.
