The Amazon Fire HD 6 is a cheap buy for anyone looking at a new tablet. Most people didn’t want anything to do with the Fire Phone’s despite the excellent value for money because they came with a unique FireOS. The Kindle Fire table series comes with the same Fire OS, though many are more inclined but the tablets. The main problem with the Fire OS is that it doesn’t allow people to install all the usual apps from the Google Play Store like a usual Android operating system would. I’m sure nobody needs a reminder on how large a role apps play in deciding what device people will buy. Just look at the struggles Microsoft had with creating successful Windows phone that most people wouldn’t buy because the Microsoft App Store is nothing compared to the range people can find from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
So, what’s the solution to this problem? If you are tech-savvy enough, you can find guides on the internet that can give you an unofficial workaround method for installing things like the Google Play Store over the Fire OS, but it’s not easy. The other choice you have is to root Amazon Fire HD 6 and run all those extra apps.
- The following guide is only meant for the Amazon Fire HD 6. We do not recommend you follow this guide if you have one of the other versions of the Kindle Fire tablets, or any other device for that matter. It doesn’t matter if it’s a different device from the Amazon range, or a completely different manufacturer. Applying these steps on a different device will likely brick the device.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
- You do not need a computer for this guide; thus it is a guide on how to root Amazon Fire HD 6 without a computer. Likewise, since you are not using a computer, you do not need to install the Amazon USB driver, or any other drivers such as the universal driver made by Koush — the founder of ClockworkMod recovery.
- If the guide doesn’t work for you using the mobile app, it is recommended by the official developers that you install the desktop version under the same KingRoot name. The KingRoot team has made both a desktop and mobile app. The desktop is supposed to be more reliable; however, it’s the mobile app that everyone uses due to its ease of use.
HOW TO ROOT THE AMAZON KINDLE FIRE HD 6
- Download the KingRoot mobile APK from here. Those that prefer using the Windows desktop app can download it from the same page. The two links are side by side.
- Load the KingRoot APK using a file manager that’s either already on your tablet or available from the Fire OS app store.
- Once you have installed the app, you will see three new apps available from the App drawer.
- Tap on the KingRoot app.
- Tap the ‘try to Root’ button found on the first page within the app.
- The KingRoot tool will now browse through all the information on its own servers and find the working rooting method that’s right for your Amazon Fire HD 6 tablet.
- Wait until the progress bar gets to 100% and it lets you know the root has had success.
- Manually reboot your Amazon Fire HD 6 tablet as you normally would when turning it off and on again.
- Great; now the Amazon Fire HD 6 has the root access you have been waiting for all this time.
