We had already covered the procedure on how to root Amazon Kindle Fire but unfortunately most users reported about the process not working properly. Thus we have come out with an all new improved rooting technique that is bound to root your Kindle fire without any hassles. This update works on all the firmware versions of Kindle Fire along with the 6.2.1 firmware. It is to be noted that this rooting procedure will void the device’s warranty and can be applied only on Windows 7 based computers.
