Weeks ago, Amazon rolled out an update for the Kindle Fire, bringing the newest software version 6.2.1 to the tablet. Among those who had rooted their Kindle Fire and customized it, version 6.2.1 of the Amazon software revoked root access, and took away the Android Market and pretty much every other modification and customization that users made on their tablets.
Would the Android developer community let that go by unnoticed? Apparently not. A member of XDA Developers was able to build a pre-rooted ROM based on the latest version 6.2.1 update from Amazon. Installing this ROM allows you to update your Kindle Fire’s software to version 6.2.1 and retain root access. However, if you install this ROM, you will lose your current customizations and other data, although you can reinstall them afterwards (e.g., Android Market, keyboard apps, etc.).
