  • Ozimandius

    Awesome, it worked, thanks a bunch!

  • http://askhideki.com Hideki

    It works like a charm. thank you. XD tried it on other device. heheh :D thanks again.

  • beardshadow

    didn’t work for me?

    when I do step 23, Window says: “Windows was unable to install your Kindle. Windows could not find driver software for your device. If you know the manufacturer of your device, you can visit its website and check the support section for driver software.”

    ???

    • beardshadow

      ok, i got it to work, but i had to go into “device manager” and select “drives” instead of the Kindle with the yellow exclamation point. and then update the driver there. now my computer and kindle work with ADB.

      not sure why i had to do it that way…

      thank for the tutorial!

      • Dimitar

        I did absolutely everything as it says but It does not allow me to update the driver the button “update driver” is not touchable in my case any suggestions ?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Hi Dimitar, do you have administrator right?

          • Alina

            I have administrator rights but it doesn’t work anyway.
            I have Kindle Fire HD.

            • Alina

              Made it.
              Thank you anyway

    • JeroenJ.v.R.

        Hi JeroenJ, anything different between yours and mine?

  • LuinuX

    Hi there, I did every step as it is instructed on this page, but when I try Testing Kindle Fire adb USB driver the console give me a message ” ‘adb’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. (My Kindle Fire is connected at the moment I try it). What can I do?

    Thanks

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Add Android SDK tools and platform-tools to your PATH environment variable.

      • LuinuX

        And how do I add the 2 Paths? I can only see space for one path. Copy and paste it both together?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Yes, refer to existing paths on how to separate them.

          • LuinuX

            Sorry but I don’t have a path that I could use as reference, could you be more specific.

            I’ll appreciate it

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Huh? I thought you already read How to install & setup Android SDK Development Environment? guide. Didn’t you?

              • LuinuX

                I just read it a couple of times, but clearly I’m not understanding how to do this.

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  Take your time to study it then. Google if you need. :)

                  • Rob

                    Google if you need? How do you think he came across this website?

            • darron

              I had same prob. just use a semicolon to separate the 2 paths

              %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools;C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\tools;

          • Christina

            I am having the same problem. I’ve does the PATH variable environment without spaces after the semi colon and with spaces. What am I doing wrong?

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Sorry Christina, hard to tell what went wrong. Google for Microsoft guide if you are not sure what are you doing.

      • PTG

        how to add?
        pls some video

        • Christina

          I am having the same problem. I’ve does the PATH variable environment without spaces after the semi colon and with spaces. What am I doing wrong?

    • C_O

      If anyone is still having trouble make sure what you’re running, ie 32 or 64 bit. Paths for 32 bit are:
      C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools
      C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\tools

      Now when you test the KF ADB in command line make sure your KF is plugged in to the USB, but not connected to transfer files. Now run the commands and it should work.

  • PTG

    Add Android SDK tools and platform-tools to your PATH environment variable. HOW to add this pls some video ???

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Please refer to how to install & setup Android SDK Development Environment guide.

  • Sean

    so in attempt to overwrite android_winusb.inf it says i cant save there and Access Denied in notepad. i took off read only on the android folder and i still cant do it can you tell me what to do

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Do you have admin access right?

      • Reagan

        What if I don’t have admin access? I’m trying to do this from my corporate laptop. Can it be done by saving the file somewhere else?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Not sure about that…

          • Reagan

            So – for anyone else with this problem – apparently what you can do is save the file somewhere else, then copy it and paste it back into the usb_driver folder. It’s a problem that is not related to Admin access (I have that), it’s something Windows 7 is doing to try to prevent overwriting of system files.

  • Thanh

    Jayce, thank millions for the tips.
    It really save my KF during root!
    I already think about return to service the bricked KF.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Did you install any custom software like rooting, recovery? Or just official software update?

  • Reagan

    I’m going through the device manager and trying to update the driver – but am not able to update the driver – I keep getting the response – “The best driver software for your device is already installed.” Any ideas?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Delete the existing one. Then try again.

  • jack

    When I go to devices, kindle fire, there is not one with an exclimation mark. I checked the hardware ids on the other kindle device and I get nothing like the values in the above steps.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Did you install any other 3rd party driver for Kindle Fire previously?

      • Eddie

        I Did…but when I remove it it automatically reinstalls

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce Ooi

          Eddie, try to replace it with new one.

  • Aaron

    I don’t have adb_usb.ini in my user folder. I installed all the packages on the SDK though.

    • Aaron

      Never mind, missed the API package, had to run as admin.

  • Bonny

      Did you install any other Kindle Fire driver previously?

      • Bonny

        yes -can’t remember what before -but tried uninstalling all drivers – from within computer properties area – not sure i got them all – -also had tried to do burrito root using windows xp – but it didn’t take – I managed to reset kindle back to when I first start up kindle has triangle flame icon now – but press power button again and then it restarts – – seems like I’ve screwed something up

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Uninstall and remove previous installed driver. Then install new one. Else do it on other PC.

          • Bonny

            reposted instead of reply by accident – can’t seem to c completely uninstall kindle drivers see my new post

            • Bonny

              actually – my options when i click double click on kindle (managed to get exclamation on kindle in devices by powering on after connecting kindle) -now kindle has yellow triangle with exclam in devices and printers) –double click on that and i have ‘WPD File System Volume driver with exclam -point) and below that Amazon Kindle USB device and then Android Composite ADB interface – -at no time even before this did double clicking on kindle (even when kindle showed up normally in devices – did I see just “kibdle”
              it has always been Amazon kindle USB device – and that’s what my irst post listing hardware ids was all about– I was never seeing just kindle– and still don’t

              • Bonny

                think i got it working …actually–seems it already was …

  • Bonny

    followed advice here for completely removing drivers – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErTQJ9f5Dw8
    succeeded–but as soon as I plug kindle back it in aurtomatically reloads a driver and I get same ids as mentioned above …. I am on a windows 7 amd computer – I had tried rooting using windows xp – using method from android forums– I finally the sdk environment completely loaded on my windows 7 machine- seems all I’, lacking is how to really completely remove kindle drivers since they pop right back up …. weird (I do log off and back on after uninstalling drivers)

  • Someone

    I cannot find the kindle with the yellow exclamation point. I did this tutorial on windows xp and went into device managers, but only amazon Usn device showed up not the kindle.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Not sure about Windows XP as I don’t have it. Did you install any Kindle Fire driver previously?

      • Someone

        Sorry. I accidentally posted my answer in another comment.

        What I said:
        I attempted your tutorial a while ago and the Kindle appeared then. However, I was unsuccessful and the test didn’t work. I uninstalled SDK and started all over.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          You need to remove previous installed driver too.

          • Someone

            How do I do that?

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              In driver tab. Click on uninstall.

              • Someone

                Still confused. On the driver tab of what?

                • Someone

                  I apologize. I uninstalled Amazon Kindle USB Device, unplugged the kindle then plugged it back it. The computer said that it found the new hardware and then two seconds later another noticed popped up saying that the hardware was installed and ready to use. ???

                  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                    So do you have kindle with the yellow exclamation point now?

                    • Someone

                      Seed, that’s what I’m saying. I uninstalled it and it automattically installed istelf while I had to do it manually the first time. Not only that, but I still don’t have the yellow exclamation point.

  • Steve

    I followed the directions and everything worked properly except the list of devices is not showing the kindle at the command prompt?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Then you might not install the driver properly.

  • Efrem

    Really appreciate the info and the ease of use of your tutorial. Thank you

  • Eve

    Wow, thank you so much! This is amazing!

  • Luis

    My kindle is not appearing in the C: drive removables. Any hints?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Did you install any other Kindle Fire USB driver previously?

      • Luis

        I have not.

        • Luis

          I just figured it out, just had to open up the kindle itself to prompt the file transfer. Thanks for the quick reply.

  • Jeremiah

    Hi! I cant quite figure this one out: when it get to step #23 I select the android folder wtih the USB drivers and hit next, but Windows says it was unable to locate the correct driver. I’ve downloaded the most recent android SDK usb driver, so I am a bit puzzled as to why Windows doesn’t see the driver there. Any ideas?

    • Jeremiah

      Nevermind! Figured it out. Forgot to save the changes to the android_winusb.ini file. Doh!

  • yolande

    Hello Jayce
    ‘adb’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. (My Kindle Fire is connected at the moment I try it). I entered the two paths using a ; to start each one.
    HELP. I searched the net using the error but cant seem to get the correct info. That is the only thing stopping me!

    Yolande

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Did you install Android SDK Development Environment?

      • yolande

        All files in the SDK manager that needed to be installed is installed. adb is still not recognized.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Did you set it to your PATH environment variable?

    • mike

      you need to type the location of adb. ex. cd C:\android-sdk

  • Mushfiq

    Hi, thanks a lot! I was able to install the ADB USB driver for Notion Ink Adam (Ice Cream Sandwich) as well following the directions you mentioned.

  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

    @Someone: Look like you did not remove USB driver from your Windows. Uninstall and remove it totally.

    • yolande

      yeah I did. I followed all your steps. Just went throuth the SDK Manager and got this errir message”Failed to fetch URL http://android-sdk-addons.motodevupdate.com/addons.xml/addon.xml, reason: android-sdk-addons.motodevupdate.com”. What is that about?

      • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

        No idea about this error. You might want to consult Google on this.

  • Skylar

    Everything worked just fine until step 23 when I got this message.
    “Windows was unable to install your Kindle. Windows could not find driver software for your device. If you know the manufacturer of your device, you can visit its website and check the support section for driver software.”
    Please help?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

        Darn it.
        Well thanks anywayss.

  • Evan

    Hey i’m missing the second file you mentioned and when I try to install the driver I get an error saying the hash to the file is corrupted or missing

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Which file?

      • Evan

        Ok so I have the drivers installed properly and the computer recognizes it in devices but not in adb. A long time ago my kindle fire rom got erased when i installed a different rom. I had twpd installed and threw the update.zip on it but when i went to install it it got stuck i left it for a couple hours and then said screw it and tried to restart it. Now it’s stuck on the kindle fire logo and does not get recognized by adb but it does get recognized by device manager. I need help. I installed the driver several ways and many times. I need serious help.. you can teamview my comp if you need to

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Look like it is not USB driver but bad ROM installation to me. Do you still can load TWRP?

          • Evan

            No, unfortunatly I can not. Do to the circumstances the kindle has no evidence that it was rooted or still is. I can send it back saying that it had a problem during an update.

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              I think so since TWRP is not there.

  • Sabrina

    I have windows 7. I downloaded everything I needed and did all I could. Not one of the API files will download. They all say file not found access is denied. Yes, I’m running them as administrator. That is the only thing keeping me from rooting the kindle.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce
      • Sabrina

        Now my android_winusb.inf is missing. I had already put in the text that I was supposed to put in, but now it’s missing.

        • Sabrina

          Okay, forget that last part. The files are under winusb no matter how many times you save them with the ini or inf. So, I did everything, it installed the composite driver. I went to command prompt and it’s still not showing up. So I’m stuck there now.

          • Sabrina

            And far as the other page I don’t have the Kindle-Fire-Driver.7z file. I know you told someone you get it from sdk, but that installed all it will install. I can’t install any of the api files for some reason, just the tools, extras, and the platform tools. I even tried another computer. In fact, I had to delete the sdk and download and install several times before it would even let me install the google usb.

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Kindle-Fire-Driver.7z file is in that post.

              • Sabrina

                I know, but from what read it seems like I should already have that file. I read there that it comes from the sdk, but I have that already except for the api files it won’t let me install.

                • Sabrina

                  I have the 7z installed, but still don’t have that kindle fire driver file to extract.

                  • Sabrina

                    ???

                  • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                    Download it then.

                    • Sabrina

                      I stated that I have the 7z downloaded. I actually downloaded it twice. I deleted it the first time because there is no file for me to extract. I’m wanting to know where do I get the file that needs to be extracted? The Kindle Fire file? Again, I know you told one guy on the other page that you get that file from the SDK, but where at because I have the SDK and yet no file for the Kindle Fire. This is frustrating!

  • Dhruvil

    I cant find the adb_usb.ini file in the .android folder. What do I do???

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      You can create it yourself too. Just a text file.

      • Dhruvil

        What text do I put in it? Just 0x1949? Is it x or *?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          x

  • Brian

    When I plug in my kindle to my PC, I don’t get those options. Kindle is not listed, instead, it says “Android Phone”. Then, in its subfolder it says “Android ADB Interface”. However, the Kindle is not shown when I do “adb devices”

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Brian, are you using drivers in this guide?

      • Brian

        I tried uninstalling the previous driver and it worked. By the way, I’m trying to root it because my Kindle is unresponsive on the “Kindle Fire” screen. Will it work?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Not sure about that. But you can try…

        • Brian

          Edit: Whenever I plug in my Kindle, it will automatically install a driver that says “Android Phone”

    @Sabrina: There is Kindle Fire Driver folder and driver files in Kindle-Fire-Driver.7z. If you can’t see them, your download is corrupted then.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Try to install TWRP back first.

  • gimoss

    How I can?
    When I install TWRP by Kindle_Fire_Utility_v0.9.3 The answer is ….. no such file or directory the kindle has been told to reboot in Fastboot Mode
    And from adb

    – exec ‘/system/bin/sh’ failed: No such file or directory

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Sorry gimoss, I am also not sure how to fix this. Try to ask others at XDA website.

  • Igor Ganapolsky

    This method does not work on Windows 8. I get an error that the hash to a file is corrupted when trying to update the driver.

    • Adam

      I get the same thing…its irritating

      • Greg

        confirmed.. does NOT work in windows 8 same error message here

  • tycoon

    I have the driver installed with no problems and windows sees the device. However, ADB will not work. I have rebooted, uninstalled, reinstalled and even tried it on a different computer with the same problems. All the ini files have been updated and the correct vendor 0x is in the ini files. Any ideas of what to do?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      So you have Android Composite ADB Interface driver installed? And does the testing Kindle Fire adb USB driver able to see it?

  • Shah

    Hi Jayce,

    I get the following error while trying to install the adb driver. I’m using win 7 64bit and it automatically installs WPD Filesystem volume driver. I am unable to delete this driver. If i uninstall kindle and scan for new hardware it picks up the same driver.

    If i try to upgrade the driver i get the error that WPDFS is the best suited driver. If i try to install manually with the adb driver i get the error “The folder you specified doesn’t contain a compatible software driver for your device. If the folder contains a driver, make sure it is designed to work with Windows x64 based system.”

    i’ve tried this on 2 computers (2nd one is 32 bit windows 7) and get the same error. (In the 2nd computer it says designed to work with windows x32 system)

    Would appreciate any help to resolve this.

  • Leo

    Worked perfectly here. Thanks from Brazil!

  • Brega

    GOD BLESS YOU SIR!!

    It took a couple tries for it to finally work, but work it did! Thank you for your time and effort in putting together this tutorial!

  • Jason

    Hi Jayce

    I have gone through all the steps above, but I still cannot find my kindle fire from my pc.
    In the command prompt window, my result didn’t show any number like your last line. it only showed list of devices attached.(there is not your last line)

    In the devices and printer I can see my kindle, but in the devices manager I cannot see it.
    my kindle seems to become Android phone already. (I tried to root my kindle fire, but it was not successful)

    thanks,

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Jason, did you install other Kindle Fire USB driver previously?

      • Jason

        Hi Jayce, I probably installed other kindle Fire USB driver before. How could I check?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Delete and uninstall the previous uninstalled driver in Device Manager.

          • Jason

            I found 3 drivers in Android Phone/Android ADB Interface from Device Manager as follows
            c:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\winusb.sys
            c:\Windows\system32\WdfCoInstaller01009.dill
            c:\Windows\system32\WinUSBCoInstaller2.dill

            Should I delete them?

            I don’t know how to uninstall driver.

            By the way, my version is kindle fire 6.3

            Thanks,

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              No.

              Google for uninstall driver guide.

              • Jason

                Just double check
                do you want me to uninstall all the drivers under Android ADB Interfaces and Android Composit ADB Interface?

                Thanks,

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  Yes, removed all previous installed driver.

                  • Jason

                    Should I tick “delete the driver software for this device” while I uninstall?

                    Thanks,

                      Yes Jason.

    My Android phone hardware id is showed as follows

    USB\VID_1949&PID_0006&REV_0216

  • Jason

    Hi Jayce
    What is the next step after uninstalling drivers?

    Thanks,

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Install the correct driver then.

      • Jason

        How do I find the correct driver, and where should I save it?

        • Jason

          Hi Jayce
          I can find kindle fire as a removable disk. Do I have to install driver before I restore my kindle fire by using kindle fire Utility?

          • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

            Yes, you need to install Kindle Fire USB driver first. Use the driver in this article. Or easier one at http://www.jayceooi.com/2011/12/29/how-to-install-kindle-fire-adb-usb-driver-video/

            • Jason

              Thanks, you are a legend.

              Am I ready to root my kindle fire or restore it?

              thanks,

              • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                Yes, all KFU features should be to work now.

  • Tom

    Jayce: First, thank you for the excellent instructions and your patience and help. My configuration, then one question: I have Win 7 64-bit, android sdk and eclipse indigo installed and working fine with android device (Samsung Galaxy S II) including USB debugging of my Apps on the Galaxy hardware. I also wish to do App debugging over USB with my Kindle Fire but cannot do so yet. I followed your instructions 1 – 5 but “Kindle with yellow exclamation point” does not appear (all other items in your “Kindle Properties > hardware screen shot do appear). Also, “Android Composite ADB Interface – type Samsung” does appear (i.e. this item seems to replace the “Kindle with yellow exclamation point” item). btw, I do have access to Kindle Fire memory via USB and this is how I load my development Apps currently. Should I delete the “Android Composite ADB Interface” driver and will that cause the “Kindle with yellow exclamation point” item to appear? btw, I have done your instruction items 10 – 18. If I do delete the “Android Composite ADB Interface” listed under Kindle Properties > hardware will it cause my USB debug connection to Samsung Galaxy S II to stop working (This would be a disaster for me which I hope to avoid)? I assume I can proceed successfully with your instructions once I get the “Kindle with yellow exclamation point” item to appeaar. Thank you very much.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Just uninstall and remove previous Kindle Fire installed driver when your Kindle Fire plug in. You should be able to see Kindle with yellow exclamation mark then.

      • Tom

        Finally, after much time and effort, success! Per Jayce’s comment, I uninstalled Kindle Fire Android driver and then reinstalled per instructions (turns out I had followed the instructions before but it did not work). Even after the new install, I could not get KF recognition in adb. Then, I copied the “ini” file from Admin to my User>username and it still did not work. Then I restarted the computer and IT WORKED. Thank you Jayce! btw, I found solving this problem more difficult than programming a complicated android app with location and media player features (while having to learn java, xml, eclipse and android from scratch). All would be impossible for me without Google search.

  • Alx

    Hi Jayce, I really need your help to resolve my unbricking problem,
    That disturbed me much many times …

    I approximately get it, i think there remains one last step,
    I watched your video and comly to it, cover :

    – SDK Manager & Path Environment. (Exactly right)
    – Folder .android has adb_ini.ini (Key “0x1949″)
    – In Device Manager, Kindle Fire appear yellow sign.
    – Then, update driver for it by Kindle Fire Driver manually. (Exactly right)
    – And that problem is here:
    + My computer (Vista) automatically installed “Android ADB Interface” driver.
    + Observe your video, I change that driver to “Composite ADB Interface” driver.
    + Code 10 appears, i follow google to fix it, that says “restart is likely to fix”, but not.

    I need your advise, as soon as possible,
    i indeed appreciate it …

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Alx, you need to uninstall and remove previous installed driver first.

      • Alx

        I’m sorry …

        I removed & deleted (Checked Deleted this driver software for this device) it many times, and that “Android ADB Interface” driver still appear first, not “Composite ADB Interface” …

        Im trying a couple days ago …

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Hmm… Try on other PC see.

          • Alx

            Ah ha, you’re have a point … On other pc, I easily got rooted kindle fire.

            But on mine, I early tried and succeeded … (once in last week)
            And then that problem occurs when i format data of Kindle fire on Window 7 pc automatically.

            Thanks for your reminder.
            I will do it.

  • http://www.technotalkative.com/ TechnoTalkative

    Hello Jayce,
    I forgot to perform step-17 in between but still able to install drive successfully.

    But somehow i am not getting my devices listed by adb devices command at command prompt.

    can you please how do i get my devices listed?

    • http://www.technotalkative.com/ TechnoTalkative

      Found the solution myself.

      Just added:

      0x1949
      0x006

      and execute below commands one by one:

      adb kill-server
      adb usb
      adb devices,

      i got my device displayed in the output.

      Cheers !!

      Thanx a lot Jayce

          Okay I got past that part but now I am having trouble with the last step in installing the driver, do you know how to deal with that?

          • Alx

            Note : Guarantee usb connect. Follow these step exactly.
            – Step 1 : When having “ADB Android Driver”, uninstall it. If not, restart pc & kindle once, if wrong, you need review above step of Jay.
            – Step 2 : Disable & Enable every “USB Root Hub” exactly, assuring “Unknown Device” appear. If not, need restart pc & kinle
            – Step 3 : When “Unknown Device” appear, certainly need restart pc & kindle.
            – Step 4 : Check “Computer Management” and you will be see “Kindle Fire” yellow
            – Step 5 : Locate it to “C:\Kindle Driver” (follow Jay) and just a minute, having “Android Composite ADB Interface”

    Hi Jay,

    What should I do.
    Thanks.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Mark, did you install any other Kindle Fire USB driver previously?

        No, I didn’t install any other KF USB driver.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Sorry Mark, I have no idea then. Windows should be able to detect it as disk drive when you connect USB cable to Kindle Fire.

          Try on other PC see.

    thanks a lot,

  • Cindy

    Thank you. I got it with your steps. It helped to turn off the kindle before replugging into the usb ports after following your steps. Sometimes it would go back to unknown device after showing the kindle, but once I got further into the android & user files and tried again, it was recognized. Kindle fire Utility still showed “offline”, yet it was working!

  • After8

    Hi, sorry for my clumsy English… Wanted to “reflash” kindle fire on the jelly bean, so that its “refresh” should be sent to the regime of fastboot, and begin to install the drivers. But there was a problem with installing drivers, an error “This device can not start” (Code 10).”, although I do everything according to instructions

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      USB driver installation should be on normal Kindle Fire Android OS mode. Not in fastboot.

        How it is now back to “normal” mode?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce
          • After8

            I do not have a yellow triangle, just a logo “Kindle fire” and the Kindle Fire Utility also tried it, says “waiting for device”. Need for drivers that would switch to normal mode, which is not installed, an error “This device can not start” (Code 10).”.

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Kindle Fire Logo is based on newer FireFireFire bootloader (yellow triangle is older one).

              • After8

                Me need drivers to work correctly, but they are not properly installed. Advise how to install them, that would not give an error, “This device can not start” (Code 10).”.

      • Alx

        Hello, you dunna know what am i talking about?
        You tried many times, but you dunna know …

        Do you want to fix “Code 10″, right?
        [Quote]
        To fix code 10 :
        Fix : Device cannot start correctly – Code 10:
        • Restart your computer if you haven’t done so already.

        There is always the chance that the error Code 10 you’re seeing on a device was caused by some temporary problem in Device Manager or with the hardware. If so, a reboot might fix the Code 10 error.
        • Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before the Code 10 error appeared? If so, it’s very possible that the change you made caused the Code 10 error.

        Undo the change if you can, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 10 error.

        Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:
        • Remove or reconfigure the newly installed device.
        • Roll back the driver to a version prior to your update.
        • Use System Restore to undo recent Device Manager related changes.
        [/Quote]

        If following that guide above, it won’t work as hoped, you need uninstall that driver (checked “delete”) and follow my steps above …
        And now, do you understand?

        • After8

          Yes, thank you for all the options have already done and to other PC’s on my PC and reinstalled windose, still an error, and (code 10). I’m just not sure what to do: (

        • Ed

    Why is it ever damn time one has to use linux it is a nightmare. Have written several hundred applications and been in IT 15 years, and promoted 7 times. And you know what. Have spent two hours fighting and wasting my time with trying to root a kindle.

    Why the hell is everything the linux developers build so damn hard to use. oh just download this utility, and well the JDK, and well the android SDK, and well some drivers, test it about 200 times, then maybe if your lucky it will connect.

    Use a .NET API find the device, update the driver associated with the device, connect and root it. Make all the tools availble online. or build a damn webpage with a Java in it that will connect and root it. Honestly what a waste of time. hour

  • Gavin Miller

    well hello sir
    i need a big help favour….well you see i have a kindle fire HD amd apparently it works through every other computer except mine why is that?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Sorry Gavin, I don’t understand. What not working?

  • Arelle

    I’m using Windows Xp. I followed all the steps both long and short method, downloaded all the stuff to be downloaded. When I finally install the drivers and select the folder where they are so they can be installed, it still says ‘wizard cannot find necessary software”. Please tell me what did I do wrong and how to correct it, I’m trying to fix this for two days already. Thanks!

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Arelle, is your Kindle Fire hardware ID setup correctly?

      • Arelle

        Yes. I tried my aunt’s Kindle Fire HD and the computer recognized it instantly. The computer recognized it as a portable device. I was able to put photos, music and books. I restored my kindle fire 2nd gen to factory settings, tried everything again. Won’t even recognize it. I was wondering if the problem is with the kindle itself, is that possible?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          No idea, Arelle. Windows should auto detect it just like Kindle Fire HD. Try to consult Amazon Support.

    I’ve got a problem with step 11, there’s simply no android folder in C:\Program Files (x86).
    I’ve double-checked every step and installed sdk with all the plug-ins required.
    Could you please tell me what is the problem here?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce Ooi

      Hi plzhalp, you might have 32 bits Windows. So you don’t have this folder. Look at C:\Program Files folder see.

      • plzhalp

        no luck it’s a 64 bits, any other ideas?

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce Ooi

          The latest version Android SDK change it default install path. It install at the folder that you extract the SDK zip file.

Well, my problem is that when I connect my device to the computer (W7 x64) It is recognise as a mp3 player, and while in your first screenshot we could see several “device functions”, in my case It only shows the “Kindle” one. What can I do? Thanks from Spain.

  • Rob Russ

    Hi,
    When the Kindle fire is connect to my PC (Windows XP), I get a MTP yellow exclamation as well the Kindle yellow exclamation point under ‘Other Devices’ in the ‘Device Manager’ . If I install the Kindle fire adb USB driver, would I only set it up for the Kindle device or both??.
    The driver details for MTP = USB\VID_1949&PID_000B&MI_00\6&3014DAA5&0&0000
    The driver details for Kindle = USB\VID_1949&PID_000B&MI_01\6&3014DAA5&0&0001

    Assuming that this installation will work on Win XP.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce Ooi

      Sorry Rob, I have no idea on MTP.

  • Bob

    I have tried everything, my kindle is bricked and I installed android sdk. Then I plug device in with fastboot cable and it goes to fastboot, windows says no drivers are found for the Tate PVT 08. Can someone please help me?

    • Bob

      Nevermind. I fixed the issue. Kindle is currently upgrading to latest version. :) :) :)

  • Luke

    Hi,

    I have followed the directions for my win 7 computer. When I go to install the drivers, my computer tells me my drivers are the best drivers for my computer and are up to date. It won’t let me change them to the new drivers I just worked so hard to install. Additionally, they show to be Windows system 32 drivers and not Kindle or ADB drivers.

    Finally, my Hardware IDs seem strange compared to what you said I should use when changing the driver file in notepad. I have
    USB\VID_1949&PID_000A&REV_0216
    USB\VID_1949&PID_000A

    That’s all and quite different from what you showed in the picture.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks!

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce Ooi

      Hi Luke, try to uninstall previous driver and install again see.
