As is the usual case with Android world it didn’t take long before a root exploit was found for the new Kindle Fire HD. In fact, this was apparently an old exploit that was not patched by Amazon. Maybe secretly Amazon wants root exploit so consumer can get more out of the tablet. I don’t know the real reason but it sure is great news.
Now, this doesn’t mean that you can start installing custom recovery and ROM since the bootloader is locked. And to be honest if you want to buy a Kindle Fire HD and put CM10 on it then skip the hassle and get a Nexus 7. But what it does mean is that soon you can install Google Play Store and have access to a larger app collection and Google apps. Now, that will make the tablet much more useful. Root or not root the Kindle Fire HD is bound to do well with customers and be another hit. Or at least till an iPad mini comes out. Oh boy.
