[UPDATE] Kindle Fire HD 7-Inch Already Rooted!

It’s official: The Kindle Fire HD 7″ has been rooted! No details, procedures, or downloads are up yet, but they will soon! It’s just exciting to see some gaining root so fast, on a fairly locked down device. Stay tuned, we will bring you the details as soon as they come!

Do this at your own risk. This could be a dangerous procedure, and we are not responsible for any possible damages. Be smart, guys.

Update: We have found a root procedure from a different source. Check out the second source link.

First, download the Kindle Fire HD 7″ drivers from here.

Download the necessary files from here. Unzip them. Take su from /system/bin/ and Superuser.apk from /system/app/ and put them into your current directory.

From command prompt, run:

adb shell
rm /data/local/tmp
ln -s /data/ /data/local/tmp
exit

adb reboot

adb shell
echo ‘ro.kernel.qemu=1′ > /data/local.prop
exit

adb reboot

adb shell mount -o remount,rw /system
adb push su /system/xbin/su
adb shell
chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su
chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su
rm /data/local.prop
exit

adb reboot

adb install Superuser.apk

You should now be rooted!
