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
- Android SDK Development Environment
- Kindle Fire adb USB driver
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?
