How To Unroot Kindle Fire via ADB On Windows, Linux & Mac OS X


I previously brought you the guide which showed the procedure involved in rooting Kindle Fire. But if you want to unroot Kindle Fire,  then here is a guide which will help you do just that. This procedure is brought to you courtesy of XDA-Developers forum member “Zedomax”. This process requires the user to manually enter commands via ADB, but that isn’t as hard as it sounds. This unroot procedure will work for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
