When ever I try to fastboot my kindle fire HD 7 inch. Running 7.4.3 it does not pick up the device (it is also rooted) when I try the command fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product.

I connect the kindle and it just reboots as it normally would the command window and it still says waiting for device.

I installed the SDK correctly since it allowed me to root my kindle just fine. Do I need another tool or should my kindle not be rooted?


After some digging, I found a solution that worked for me. I hope this helps you too:


  1. In Windows Device Manager, find Tate-PVT-08 in on the list.
  2. Right click, and select Update Driver
  3. Select Browse computer for driver software
  4. Select Choose from a list of device drivers installed on my computer
  5. Find Kindle on the list
  6. Accept ADB composite interface
  • This is not working for me, I have this same exact model and all I get at the end is code 10 device can't start.
