BurritoRoot 2 Gives Root Access Back To Kindle Fire Users After 6.2.2 Update


As I told you before Amazon has pushed out another root-breaking firmware update, bringing the Kindle Fire's firmware up to version 6.2.2. Now, if you want to root your device, BurritoRoot 2 does the work. 

BurritoRoot 2 is an easy-to-use exploit that only requires adb (Android debug bridge) and a few moments of your time. Users looking to root their device after Amazon's latest firmware update can grab BurritoRoot 2 using the download mirrors below.

To use the exploit, just download the file and run the following commands from adb:
  • adb push BurritoRoot2.bin /data/local/
  • adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/BurritoRoot2.bin
  • adb shell /data/local/BurritoRoot2.bin
  • adb root
  • adb shell id
  • <if uid = 0 continue, if not start over>
  • adb remount
  • adb push su /system/xbin/su
  • adb shell chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su
  • adb shell chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su
  • adb remount
  • adb install Superuser.apk (skip this step if its already installed)

Update: BurritoRoot 3 is now available, check all the info on this thread at XDA-Developers
