Those of you who have recently updated their Kindle Fire devices to the latest firmware version 6.2.1 would have felt hopeless with the non existence of a suitable rooting method.

This application runs on the PC, followed by a some manual ADB commands to get the job done. For now, the rooting process supports all known firmware versions, except version 6.0.
