    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.”


  2. 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?


  3. 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

  4. Hello Pleas need help with install driver. I have new Kindle Fire. Never connect to PC. After first turn on and update its frozen. I have to change for another FF but I am not from USA. Uf. Now I install SDK manager and conect to PC but driver is not write Kindle, than Unknown Device. Please what I can do now? Its any way to working for me with another ROM ? I try also hardver restart, but its same frozen. Than you for any help.

  5. For me not working. All complete fine, install USB driver but can not see Kindle. Please, what can be for problem? I try on two PC and is the same. One is 64b and another 32b. I never start Kindle is frozen, just write Kindle Fire. Please any idea? Thank you.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. when i get to step
    …………At Property, choose Hardware Ids. ……That’s Kindle Fire USB

    mine is nothing like yours

    i have under hardware ids for ‘amazon kindle USB device’
    theses 6 lines

    please advise–________________

    nothing on mine gives vid

      • 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

            • 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

  9. followed advice here for completely removing drivers –
    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)

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. 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!


  13. 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.

  14. 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?

  15. 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

      • 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 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

  16. 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.

  17. 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”

  18. Sorry
    In the last passage when Testing Kindle Fire adb USB driver
    cmd write 0928000600000001 rcovery

    I have windows 7

  23. @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.

  24. Jayce !!!!!
    Youi are the best!!!!!
    My Kindle was dead and it’s returned new
    I am very happy
    I have’t words for say you Thanks..thanks thanks.

  25. Jayce I am sorry but while I am istalling CM7 kindle is dead again it’s visible in devices but with
    Kindle_Unbrick_UtilityV1.1 and Kindle_Fire_Utility_v0.9.3 in every operation say
    no such file or directory

    ADB Status Online
    ADB Rooted: No
    Boot status: Unknow
    Now it haven’t TWRP inside
    The problem is that remain logo Kindle Fire and the light of power orange.
    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

  26. 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

  27. 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.

  28. 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?

  29. 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.


    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!

  31. 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)


  32. Hi Jayce

    My Android phone hardware id is showed as follows


    Do I have to change anything when I update android_winusb.inf?


  33. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

  34. 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 …

      • 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 …

          • 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.

  35. 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?

    • Found the solution myself.

      Just added:


      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

  36. Hi I am stuck on step 13 because when I try to insert
    ;Kindle Fire
    %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006
    %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006&MI_01
    it says Cannot create the C:\program
    Files\Android\android-sdk\extras\google\usb_driver\android_winsub.inf file
    Make sure that path and file name are correct.
    Please help.

        • 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?

          • 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”

  37. Hi Jay,

    i had Kindle Fire with ROM ICS yesterday (may be rooted i think, i checked with busybox),
    but i can’t access google play, and having some of game can’t play exactly when i install .apk (Checked Allow Unknown Source), announcing “Unfortunately, “name of game” has stopped”, others is ok

    you can tell me why?

    • yeah Jay,

      Hard working several hours, i got it,

      I follow it but i need romToolBox to get administrative.

  38. 20.Go to General tab.
    21.Select Update Driver… then.
    22.Select Browse my computer for driver software ~ Locate and install driver software m

  39. When I get to
    13. Insert these 3 lines at [Google.NTx86] and [Google.NTamd64].
    ;Kindle Fire
    %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006
    %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006&MI_01

    I enter exactly how it is but when i save it, it will not allow me to save it. It says access denied. why is it doing that?!

  40. Hi Jay,

    I followed steps. It worked. I can see my Kindle fire from Devices and Printers but I can not see from windows explorer. I can not access my KF. It frees as “Kindle fire”.
    What should I do.

  41. Hi J,

    It’s great and very easy steps post to connect Kindle Fire. I searched a lot but found your post very useful and finally detected device using adb

    thanks a lot,

  42. 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!

  43. I followed all steps. Everything seemed to work fine but when I type in adb devices no device shows.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

  44. does not work 🙁 Day 6 is not working kindle fire, stuck on the fastboot mode…..


    I do everything according to instructions, writes the error. “Android ADB Interface, This device can not. (Code 10)” and so on multiple PCs. please tell me what to do? 🙁

  45. 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

          • 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).”.

              • 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).”.

                • Hi After8,

                  Following Jay correctly, please.
                  And then, follow me, try more two times and sent feedback if it’s corrrect.

                  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.

      • 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?
        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.

        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?

  46. hello i cant get pass step 11. i have not downloaded any kindle software and ive also tried to see if the kindle icon would have the program folder, but that does work either. A little help please?

  47. This works too as a way to Install USB ADB Drivers for the ASUS Transformer Infinity TF700T
    (hope google gets that for anyone else that gets an ASUS pad, b/c they don’t give it out).

    Thanks a lot, this has helped me twice now!

  48. Hi Jayce, appreciate the great info. I have installed everything following your step by step advice. Issue I have is when I get to this step I cannot find the path. I entered the two paths manually as you had recommended. I do not have an Android folder in Programs (x86)

    This is where I am getting hung up:

    Go to My Computer.
    Then go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\extras\google\usb_driver folder

    What can I do to fix this issue so I can get my kindle fire to communicate with my 64 bit Windows 7? Thanks!

  49. Hey Jayce, its all about KF but need HD2 ‘android composit adb interface’ driver …….at “device manager” got an ‘android phone’ + with the yellow exclamation point on ‘android composit adb interface’. & its hardware ids not look like USB\VID_ ….. its PCI\VEN_….. & i found C:\Users\YourUserName\.android folder but did not find adb_usb.ini &Key in 0×1949 in ths folder.
    Actually i need htc hd2’s adb driver…..please let me know the procedure how to install it on my xp or the link where i wil find step by step guide. thanks

  50. I do not have an android folder. I don’t know where to get one. When I try to install the driver instead of showing android phone, it shows up as portable device. And when I finish install the driver it shows up as MTP USB device… I NEED HELP 🙁

  51. 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

  52. 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?

  53. 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!

      • 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?

    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

  63. 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.

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

    Any help would be great.

  68. Hello there, have been trying to get my bricked Kindle Fire HD 8.9 to a point where I can fastboot or adb FOREVER!!!
    I’m stuck on blue logo (rooted my kindle previously, then deleted the os i think)
    I’ve finally managed to get it to show up as an ADB device, but it’s showing as 123456789ABCDEF unauthorised when I do “adb devices”
    I’m presuming I’ve done something wrong with the hardware ID bit. I’ve put a screenshot up. I left the rev bit out as I saw another post that said that, but now there’s just one ID and no MI bit.
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE any ideas??

    how I can solve this problem because I did not know that the Amazon tablet encountered problems (when rooted) during a factory reset

    Thank you in advance for your assistance
