Since the kindle dropped so drastically in price I couldn’t resist buying one for my wife & I. I love the little machine, and do a lot more with it than just read books. I’ve had it for a couple weeks now, and rooted it the first night. I just haven’t documented it till today! Lucky for you this is one of the simplest processes ever, and only takes a few minutes. After you jailbreak the kindle it only takes a minute to root the kindle over usb. The process should be the same for Kindle 3,2, and 1.
Well lets begin by jailbreaking the kindle: 1) Start by downloading the following zip (kindle-jailbreak-0.3.N.zip), and unzip it somewhere you can remember 2) Locate the file associated with your kindle:
<pre>"*_k2_install.bin" - K2 U.S. "*_k2i_install.bin" - K2 International "*_dx_install.bin" - Kindle DX U.S "*_dxi_install.bin" - Kindle DX International "*_dxg_install.bin" - Kindle DX Graphite "*_k3g_install.bin" - Kindle 3 3G US "*_install.bin" - Kindle 3 WiFi "*_k3gb_install.bin" - Kindle 3 3G UK
3) Upload to your Kindle
4) Unmount kindle & press the [Home] button
5) Press [Menu] > Settings > [Menu] > Update your Kindle (It will fail, but this is okay)
**6) You’re finished! Now your kindle can accept the other hacks released by the mobiread forums! (I’ll upload tutorials to the screensaver hack / usb network / and fonts hack) **
