News has broken today about Amazon bringing out a new top of the line Kindle tablet for fans to buy soon. It might make some of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 6 device owners feel like they need to upgrade. Anyone having similar thoughts, but not having enough money to get the latest Kindle device can still get more out of the current HD 6 tablet instead by rooting the device. Rooting your Kindle is like getting administrator permissions over a Windows or Mac operating system, and we all know how useless Windows or Mac can be without those same permissions. We have administrator permissions taken away from us with the Android operating system because it’s based on the Linux kernel.
In geek terms, Linux is by far the coolest operating system to run on a computer, but many businesses, companies and non-geeky folk prefer to run Windows because it’s easier to use. Correspondingly, many people buy Mac because they think it’s the best brand, so they lay down extra money because they want to own what is the best. When it comes to performance, the Linux operating system blows Windows out of the park and it is better than mac too. It was a wise choice for Google to buy Android for its ability to be a great operating system. The downside is that it doesn’t come with great security and that’s the main reason the Android developers (working under Google) decided to lock it down.
As long as you know what you are doing with the Android operating system (and backup the operating system before making any large changes or take any risks) you can root your device with little to worry about. For example, if you decide to root and then run the Titanium Backup application, you will have access to the internal system files. Delete the wrong files, and you can really make a mess of your device. However, those who did back up the data and internal system before choosing to play with it can just restore it again like it was before.
Files You Need
- Download the KingRoot APK from the official home from this KingRoot website.
– it is advised that if you do not get the APK version to work that you should try the desktop version for a Windows computer. The desktop version is known to have a better success rate.
Rooting the Amazon Fire HD 6 running on the Fire OS
- Download the KingRoot APK either to your computer or directly to the web browser application on your Kindle Fire device. Those choosing to download it to the computer will need to transfer it to the SD card and then install it using a File Manager.
- Tap to open the KingRoot application once you have it installed on your Kindle Fire HD 6 device.
- Tap on the large button from the main KingRoot web page that suggests it will root your device.
- Watch and wait for the progress bar on your Kindle Fire’s display to reach 100% and for the success message to show up on the display.
- Close the KingRoot application and press the Power button to reboot your device.
In conclusion, that’s how to root the Amazon Fire HD 6 running on the stock Fire OS that comes with the device. You should find this method works for all the HD 6 tablets, but there is no harm in trying anyway because this universal one click rooting method will never brick your device. It just might not work for all the software updates that arrive OTA for the HD 6 tablet in the future.
