I have been trying to root my Kindle Fire HD 8.9 Version 8.4.9 using the following post: Unfortunately, because I have never had to ask a question before, I could not reply directly to that post.
I am not clear as to what this means "First step you need to enable fastboot (kfhd 8.9) using kindle fire srt ver 2.1 (option 1) ..."
I run the command "fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product" and get the "< waiting for device>" message, but the Kindle just reboots into its normal kindle interface.
I have enabled adb debugging and installation of software from unknown sources on the kindle itself.
Any help would be appreciated!
