Burritoroot3 does not work on anything before 6.2 nor anything after 6.2.2

Download:

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

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?
You probably still have to push su

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

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

Thanks for the response.

I've uninstalled the SU app on the KF, and while a rootchecker app I have on my device says I'm not rooted, Amazon video won't work and I assume it's because Amazon still sees the KF as rooted.

Anything else you might suggest?

UPDATE: I'm not sure what I was doing wrong using the included "unroot" option, but for now, OTA Rootkeeper unroots enough for me to watch Amazon Videos. (Thanks, screwyluie on xda-developers. (http://forum.xda-dev...97&postcount=13))
It only undoes the ADB Root that my app made.

Any help for the "adb cannot run as root in production builds" issue? I tried a THIRD computer from scratch, and still get this.
un app, click root first.

Ok, looks like fine work, but I have a problem.

My mom is trying to re-root her Kindle, but it looks like you need to install the BurritoRoot apk on the Kindle Fire. But you need some kind of file manager to do that... and Amazon won't let her use their app market. Apparently Market is only available to people with an American credit card with an American billing address.

She's already got adb working. Does anyone know if you can do an adb install on the apk BEFORE rooting? Or any other way to install it on the Fire? I'd really much prefer to use this method to one that requires flashing a recovery image.
adb isntall burritoroot.apk

Where exactly do I unzip the superuser zip to?? On my kindle or computer and into which folder? I am really new to this and I think I have gone through a lot of steps to get this far. I am trying to push "su" and I get an error that says "No such file or directory". PLEASE help
On your computer.

anyone find a compatible su, etc? this process was super easy, but superuser keeps crashing on me when i try to launch it; and any app that tries to gain root (root explorer for example) fails.. root explorer would launch but with no root privileges.
OP updated with new su/superuser.

Thanks! So you can adb install without rooting? That means you can pretty much install anything you have an apk for, without rooting. Which would be pretty cool.
99% of androids are like this

Sorry I am unfamiliar with any OS but linux, hopefully someone will chime in.

First off thank you for your hard work.I just got my kindle and am looking forward to a nice small ics tablet. Would you please point me in the best direction to get gaaps installed following your root method. And please expect a stocking stuffer once I am done with rooting. (On a side note if you type stuffer on your kindle it wants to change it to stiffer, made me laugh, thought id share)
Sorry I wouldn't know

There is so much missing information in this post. does anyone know of a better source that has more steps. because this cleary has risen lots of questions and is missing information, such as kindle driver downloads, kindle adb download.
There is no missing information at all in my post.

This is not a how to setup android debug bridge post, its how to use my app. Docs on adb itself explain how to set it up.

I don't know what to do, i get this error:

after the following command:

Everything is ok... dirivers are ok... but i have that 'su' stupid problem.

Thanks in advance!
Make sure su is in your current path and push su again, and set the permissions.

Amazon can certainly remove it
