  2. Hello Jayce,

    i have trouble with the android market. When i want do download something from the market then the market-app say an error is due downloading happen. And after that i see that the app is notefited in “my apps” without any status.
    Can it be that i must register an another Android-device to the google-account?

    • Please consult Kindle Fire Utility developer with your issue. Not sure how the installation process with KFU. Or you can try my method to install Android Market.

  3. Jayce,

    Thanks for your great work on this. Been rooting/modding my phone for 18 months or so, so not a total noob, and I think KFU is one of the great android utilities I’ve come across. I have a problem, though.

    Rooted my daughter’s KFire w/ KFU for her and it was a breeze. Got Burrito icon, got Superuser icon, messed around with it a little, and all was good. We were having an issue loading the Android market (we hadn’t discovered your guide yet) and decided to start from scratch by unistalling all the “gapps” apks we’d loaded. Unfortunately, she accidentally uninstalled Superuser and Burrito as well. No problem — I ran KFU again to root and load Superuser (which I probably didn’t need to do in retrospect), then loaded TWRP (which we hadn’t done the first time), but it Yellow Triangled and stuck. Wouldn’t recognize device, and the driver was gone. No problem — one of your commenters got me out of it and I was able to reinstall the proper driver. KFire is working again.

    However, since I didn’t see the Superuser icon this time, I ran KFU again (“3” option w/ Superuser), but after reboot, there’s still no Superuser icon and no Superuser app that I can detect. KFU status says I’m rooted, I can boot into TWRP, I just don’t have a Superuser icon, nor have I gotten the familiar “asking for Superuser privileges” message when running certain utilities (though that might not happen on kindle like it does on my phone).

    Should I just dl a separate superuser apk and install it, or am I asking for trouble, since KFU should’ve installed it? Should I unroot and re-root (I’ll need a re-root guide)? Should I flash back to stock and start over? Please advise.
