The usual disclaimer stuff first. This post is about what I did to root my Kindle Fire (KF) and the problems I faced and how I solved them. I’m not responsible for any damage that happens to your Kindle Fire or any other device either by following the below steps or by downloading anything suggested here.
So this post is more of a follow up of the other post of mine which says how I rooted my Kindle Fire. So you are using Kindle Fire Utility to root your KF and after your run the Run.bat your screen looks like this.
ADB Status is Offline.
- Kindle Fire is not connected properly.
=> Check your connections, and run run.bat again.
- Drivers are not installed properly.
=> Run install_drivers.bat again and run run.bat again.
Okay you did both and it still says DB Status is offline. Okay at this point you need to do a few more steps, but don’t worry its really very easy.
- Connect your KF.
- Open Device Manager in your laptop.
- Look for Android Phone >> Android Composite ADB Interface.
- Right Click.
- Click Uninstall.
- Complete the Uninstall.
- Disconnect your KF from the laptop.
- Wait for a minute or so, and connect your KF again.
- Now when you open your Device Manager on your laptop again, your will see Android Phone >> Android Composite ADB Interface.
- There might be a small yellow caution sign on the ABD Interface, this is good.
- Right Click on this again and click Update Driver Software.
- Select Browse my Computer for driver software.
- Select the location for the Kindle Fire Utility\drivers\kindle folder.
- Complete updating the driver.
- Run run.bat again.
- Your screen will look like this.
- Your ADB Status will be Online.
- Now your can continue to root your Kindle Fire. See my other post on how to continue.
Hope this works for you. If not, let me know and we can probably figure out why its not working.
