Download:
http://download.cunn...urritoRoot3.apk

BurritoRoot3 is an all in one package, to root and install the custom bootlaoder, FireFireFire, onto the KindleFire.

Instructions are pretty plain and simple, however you will have to get adb working on your own (if you have written, or know of adb guides for the Kindle Fire please PM me to list them here).

What it does:
Gains root, installs superuser, installs su and installs the FireFireFire bootloader.

At this time, we do not have permission to distribute any recovery, once one is available for our use, we will add auto flashing of recovery.

Usage example :

[email protected]:~$ adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp <---- This one is important, it may not create BurritoRoot3.bin if this is not done
[email protected]:~$ adb install BurritoRoot3.apk
4897 KB/s (1151520 bytes in 0.229s)
pkg: /data/local/tmp/BurritoRoot3.apk
Success

<open the app now>

[email protected]:~$ adb shell /data/local/tmp/BurritoRoot3.bin --root

To install the CWR recovery by DoomLord after gaining root:

Download it, and push it to your Kindle

Code:
adb push <filename> /data/local/recovery.img<br />
adb shell dd if=/data/local/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/mmci-omap-hs.1/by-name/recovery

This worked for me 100%!!! Might just want to remind the not so tech savy to put the SU files in their ADB directory.

Great Job!!!

I must be dumb :) I am stuck at the install root part. I have downloaded everything, and see and .apk file. I rund adb shell fine, but do not see a "root" app. (the part that starts with "install and run root", since the download is only an .apk how would I do this?

The app is called burritoroot.

Thanks for the hard work and service to the community!

Don't understand exactly where I am supposed to unzip the Superuser files to, somewhere on the PC?. Already have Superuser on the KF and was previously rooted. Does this mean I can skip the superuser step?

UPDATE: Never did figure out for sure where to put su but it was already on my KF from a previous root so didn't need that step.

You probably still have to push su

Should unrooting work via the "unroot" selection on the KF app alone? In other words, do I need to be connected and use ADB to unroot, too, once I've rooted via your method? I ask because when I select "unroot" via the app on my KF, it says it works, but after reboot, I'm still rooted.

Seems to work, however acts a bit strange Titanium backup asks for root, when I click allow it still fails to get root, made sure I had busybox also, but no matter what I do it fails :-(
so I thought maybe root did not work, but when I ran a screenshot app that needs root, it asks for root, I hit allow and it snaps screenshots fine, so not sure this is a full root method.

would running super oneclick after this method improve things? or make them worse?

The root is full/complete however the su binary and superuser apps may not be appropriate for the Kindle Fire, I don't have one so I could not test. Replace them with the appropriate ones, those were from ICS on my Nexus S

Unroot disables the root functions preformed by the app itself, it does not remove su that you pushed to the phone yourself.
