Kindle Fire 6.2.1. update breaks root

Amazon have broken the homebrewing root on the Kindle Fire, with their latest 6.2.1. update. The update which is rolling out as we speak disables root and the SuperOneClick utility. Amazon are clearly not too happy about a portion of the user base modifying their new tablet.

Engadget add “If you’ve rooted your tablet and are still running a version of the Amazon-flavored Gingerbread, you’re susceptible to the update any time you’re connected to a WiFi network. However, if you’ve already made the leap to another version of Android, such as CM7, you can bypass this and any future software updates. There are some improvements with 6.2.1 though, as smoother scrolling, password protected WiFi use and the ability to remove recently used items from the home screen carousel are among the upgrades.”

For those who haven’t rooted their Kindle Fire the update does improve performance, and offers new features as well. So well worth installing.
