root kindle fire 6.3 on Mac OSX Lion

less than 1 minute read

I recently wrote a post on rooting your Kindle Fire 6.2.2 on your mac. You can read the post here. Apparently that process no longer works for the new firmware 6.3. To root your Kindle Fire with firmware 6.3, follow the steps below

  • Download the Kindle Water App from here
  • Connect your Kindle Fire to your mac via micro USB cable
  • Launch the KindleWater app, and just follow the instructions it says.
  • Within the next few minutes your Kindle would be rooted :)

Please note that Kindle Water will also install the ClockWorkMod Recovery Manager. Dont be surprised if you see a fire like icon at boot.

To install the Android Market, just follow the instructions which are listed in the previous post

Thanks to ST3P_2 for this awesome tool!
