That didn’t take long. The Kindle Fire has already been rooted.
User Death2all110 from Android Forums posted a guide to root the Kindle Fire with SuperOneClick 2.2 and, a few clicks.
The Kindle Fire root process is detailed at Android Forums, and look like a straightforward set of instructions. Essentially, you need top plug your Kindle Fire in and click the root button in SuperOneClick 2.2.
You need to have the SDK installed on your machine as well, but you can get all of these tools for free, and be rooted in no time.
For now, you can’t do a whole lot extra, but this paves the way for cool things. We can hope to see custom ROMs, that deliver new looks and new features to the Kindle Fire.
There is still a $800 bounty for a way to put Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich on the Kindle Fire, which is what many power users are looking forward too. It’s tough to put a timeline on this, but with a quick root and an excited development community, it may come pretty quickly.
