Root Kindle Fire on Firmware Version 6.2.1 With Burito Root - How To
Wednesday 04th of January 2012
Amazon just recently released version 6.2.1 of the software for its best-selling Kindle Fire. The update brings with it nice additions like Wi-Fi passwords and improved scrolling. The update was rather minor, but it also did pack something many Kindle Fire users didn’t expect–a software patch that rendered all previously known methods of rooting the Amazon tablet impossible.Developers on RootzWiki quickly went to work, and after a night of coding, jcase and a few other developers came up with a solution: BurritoRoot. The coders have released BurritoRoot as an opensource software under the terms of the GPL. It is a root exploit intended to gain root privileges on the Kindle Fire running firmware version 6.2.1. According to the developers, the software may not work on firmware version 6.0, so if you want to root your Kindle Fire, you may need to update to newer firmware.Though future official updates for the Kindle Fire may break this (again), BurritoRoot addresses the current need of Kindle Fire users.RequirementsExcited to get this root tool on your Kindle Fire?

importing palm memos to kindle fire
Monday 26th of December 2011
bought my husband new kindle fire for holidays, he was longtime user and devotee of palm (until it broke) and now time to move on. he really depends on his memos and already figured out loading up his contacts (via gmail). but just can't figure out to get those memos on his kindle. reading other posts, exported palm notes to .csv file in hopes that "notes everywhere" would be able to load and convert. since notes everywhere can pickup csv file from sd-card, figured i could save csv file to local directory on kindle and direct app to it. nada...import of palm file in this app looks like its hardcoded to pickup file from sd-card device as root directory. looking at app preferences, don't see option to switch palm import directory to local device (i.e. kindle root directory) is there a way to change load point of .csv file from sd-card to local kindle directories? or better yet, is there an app that can import and load palm memo's to kindle fire?

Kindle Root Help
Monday 09th of April 2012
I tried to root my Kindle Fire last night, followed the Windows instructions and got all the way to he part where I ha to use SuperOneClick. Well, just my luck, something was wrong with SuperOneClick, and everytime the program would start to open, it would "unexpectedly stop working." long story short, I got frustrated, uninstalled everything from the Windows computer, and drew my white flag. Well, after much searching, I got extremely envious. I want to yet again, however, I am leaving home, so now I will only have access to my Mac. Is this still possible to do with a mac, successfully, and with not a whole lot of tech lingo knowledge?
Partially Rooted Kindle?
Saturday 30th of March 2013
1st time post but I've used the board in the past to root my incredible and now my Kindle Fire 1st Gen. To root my Kindle I used the Kindle Fire Utility and it worked great. I was able to download from play store and I still am. Here's the issue. About two weeks ago my kindle's battery drained overnight. When I powered it back up I noticed the bootloader option didn't come up and I didn't get the blue Kindle Fire logo. I didn't think much of it until I noticed that all my Kindle Apps were working without the OTA Rootkeeper fix. I went into root keeper and it does not identify my Kindle as being rooted. I plug it into KFU and it says it is Rooted. I try to mess around with ES File Explorer and it too says I'm not rooted and I can't get to root section of the programs. Sorry for the long post but I'm confused as to whats up with my machine. I'm hoping someone might be able to suggest a fix before I do something that bricks the kindle. Same kind of thing happened with my incredible where I was half rooted...if that's a thing.
