Is it possible to root a Kindle Fire running software version 10.2.6? If so how, and if not will it ever be?

I can't stand this keyboard! I'd root just for Swype!

    Did you check with our master index, and find e.g. the question for Kindle Fire there? Besides: Since when do you need to root for Swype? It installed fine on my Cat Stargate II (running 4.1.1 and not being rooted).

  • Thank you but I believe on the kindle, at least on the older version I've messed with, you could move the kindle file on to the kindle but I couldn't get it to work.

From this thread:

Well Everyone, seems Amazon went and did an update and just wanted to confirm so that everyone knows the steps in Root Working 10.2.4 Kindle Fire 2 Root made easy still do work on the updated 10.2.6

Here's tutorial about rooting kindle on 10.2.4.

  • Astor, though I think data on XDA is quite safe from disappearing: Would you mind to include a brief extract? I will meanwhile link this question to our rooting master index to draw attention here :)
