Fix Bricked Kindle Fire Using Kindle Fire Unbrick Utility
With all the development stuff that is going on for this amazing lil device, it is not surprising that we need a utility to undo certain things that may have been done carelessly, or without reading the instructions carefully. I have always maintained that one can never be too careful, especially when playing with custom roms on any device capable of running them.
Now with all the stuff being released for the Kindle Fire, or KFire as I’m going to refer to it hereon, it was only a matter of time before someone came up with a nifty little tool which would help rectify a flash gone bad; in other words, a bricked KFire. And XDA member ZombiepirateZ has done exactly that with the Kindle Fire Unbrick Utility V1.1!!
It doesn’t matter what kind of a bricked state you’ve managed to get your KFire into, this utility will fix it for you! In one word, it’s an UnBricker!! For now, it’s a Windows Only tool, so Mac & Linux users will need to continue to hold their breath, unfortunately.
The steps and methods included in this guide are considered risky. Please do not attempt to try this unless you know exactly what you are doing, as it may render your device unusable, and your pocket lighter by the amount it takes to replace it. You have been forewarned!!!
This ROM is compatible only and only with the Kindle Fire. Please do not attempt to flash it on any other device. We are not responsible for any damage that may be caused to your device.
Operating the tool is pretty self-explanatory, since it has a GUI ( Graphical User Interface). You wouldn’t need to muck around with command prompts and the likes. So those of you who shudder at the thought of using a CLI (command line interface), this is exactly the tool for you. Just click the button which indicates your bricked state, and the KFUU will fix it for you. Nice!
