So yesterday we reported that according to several XDA developers, they have expressed their worry that Amazon’s new Kindle Fire tablets might be hack resistant due to the locked bootloader and extra security measures implemented by Texas Instruments. Well it seems that it did not take long for the rest of the community to put those fears to rest as a root method for the Kindle Fire HD tablet has already been discovered. Credit goes to sparkym3 who discovered the exploit which was also used for the ASUS Transformer Prime. In any case for those who want to root their Kindle Fire HD tablet, you can pop on over to the XDA forums where the relevant files, instructions and a video are available to guide you through the process. We advise you to proceed at your own risk.
