For those of you who are interested in the less famous Android-powered tablets (or at least, variants of it), then you would also want to be in the know about the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7” and 8.9” tablet models that ship with a custom version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, calling it the Fire OS. What kind of goodies will Fire OS come with? For starters, it will include Amazon’s custom user interface that will allow one to interact with books, media, and apps, and it will also remain extremely integrated with Amazon’s app and digital music, movie, and book stores. If you have an inkling or are simply itching to alter the way the tablet functions, then root access is required
Just what is rooting? For starters, if one were to root an Android device, you will be able to gain access to files as well as settings which would remain off limits to users normally. This would enable you to power apps which require root permissions normally, where among them include the likes of Root Explorer and Titanium Backup. Do bear in mind that rooting your Kindle Fire HDX would in all probability void your warranty, so be aware of that before you take the plunge.
