    I’ve installed the drivers ( with an error message at the end saying they weren’t installed properly but show they’re there) and run Qemuroot and after choosing option 1 is says daemon started successfully and that’s it. Nothing happens. Any idea of what I should do? (I am a bit of a noob at this) Cheers.

    Hi, I did activate ADB on my kindle but it doesnt recognize it! What can I do to fix it? When I open Qemuroot and press 1 my kindle says \I must download a free file transfer utility\? Help!

    Everything is working fine for me. I haven’t encountered any problems at all, and im in 7th grade. At first, i thought i was going to screw everything up but nope. Just make sure the ADB file is running. Also make sure the ADB is completely installed. It will ask you if you want to run it when it successfully is installed.

    Towelroot can root kindle fire HD in about 15-30 seconds w/ 1 click. Just download towelroot.apk, install it & as the app says…”make it rain”. If no root, no harm. Its fool proof.
