• ; Kindle Fire
• %SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006
• %CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006&MI_01
If you have already done this, you can now save and exit. That’s basically the ADB portion of this process.
Next, we are going to enable the root access to the Kindle Fire.
