Kindle Fire is no doubt the most hot Android tablet out there right now. It has been receiving regular OTA updates since a few days already, which have enhanced the tablet’s fluidity and performance. The new update has also delivered better support for manually setting up e-mail providers with in the Email app. Furthermore, this new update offers a new full screen mode for viewing web pages. However, as was the case with update 6.2.1, users who have updated, have lost root access. In this post I will walk you through the step of re-gaining root access for your Kindle Fire device.
To begin with, you can always use BurritoRoot by a recognized developer such as jcase, who has updated his tool, which now works with the new updated 6.2.2 version and gets you back the root access. Alternatively, head over to this forum thread to download the pre-rooted update package, which is flash-able with TWRP, thanks to forum member “nfinitefx45”. Since BurritoRoot 2 needs ADB, the re-rooting should not be all that difficult. You can find out more about ADB in my post here. For detailed instructions regarding using BurritoRoot, see instructions below.
