I'm trying to follow this post in order to install firefirefire on my kindle fire:
I'm at the part at the beginning of the guide that has me back up everything:
This will back up all partitions and the hidden NVRAM data. If you ever have to restore from scratch, you can get fastboot to write a new partition table and then fastboot in these backups Need >8GB local free, and adb installed and able to get a shell. Root not required so you can do this on a fresh out-of-the-box KF. Make a new directory to store the dump files and cd into it. Get and copy zergRush into the directory. You must use zergRush even if you're rooted!!! We need adb running as root for this to work. Then run in a terminal
adb push zergRush /data/local/tmp adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/zergRush #(if you've already rooted, or the next command says "permission denied", you may have to do:) adb shell rm /data/local/tmp/boomsh /data/local/tmp/sh adb shell /data/local/tmp/zergRush for F in `seq 1 12`; do adb pull /dev/block/mmcblk0p$F; done adb shell idme ? > nvram.txt
So I go into root mode in ubuntu with
My kindle fire is plugged in to my computer via USB, and the kindle fire's display shows the "You can now transfer files from your computer to Kindle" screen with the Disconnect button.
I execute the first command:
adb push zergRush /data/local/tmp
565 KB/s (23060 bytes in 0.039s)
I execute the second command without error:
adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/zergRush
I execute the third command without error:
adb shell rm /data/local/tmp/boomsh /data/local/tmp/sh
Then I execute the next command:
adb shell /data/local/tmp/zergRush
And this returns:
[**] Zerg rush - Android 2.2/2.3 local root [**] (C) 2011 Revolutionary. All rights reserved. [**] Parts of code from Gingerbreak, (C) 2010-2011 The Android Exploid Crew. [+] Found a GingerBread ! 0x00000118 [*] Scooting ... [*] Sending 149 zerglings ... [*] Sending 189 zerglings ... [-] Hellions with BLUE flames !
Which indicates that the rooting has failed, so the next commands also fail. I'd appreciate any help.
