Amazon latest Kindle Fire HD got ROOTED
Earlier this week, word had it that the newly-announced Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablets might be more difficult to hack than their predecessors. The reasons behind that statement were the processor's advanced security features and the signed bootloader, which prevent users from loading custom firmware onto the slate. In other words, aftermarket ROMs with stock Android builds instead of Amazon's heavily customized, and somewhat limited software seemed like a no-go.
However, there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel now that the 7-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablet has been rooted. In fact, anyone who wants to obtain root access on their Fire HD (Note, this will void your warranty) is free to open up XDA Developers and follow the how-to guide, which has been posted a few days ago.
