Amazon Kindle Fire Unbrick Utility

For those who don’t like Windows, we’ve already told you about Firekit LiveUSB Repair Kit, but if you do like Windows, there’s now a way to fix your Amazon Kindle Fire.

XDA Member Zombiepiratez has created a helpful little program for Windows that will help you fix the brick. It runs in Windows Command Prompt, so the UI is dead simple to use and the selections are easy to understand, so noobs need not fear in terms of difficulty. Unfortunately, Zombiepiratez has sustained personal injury, as he says:

Unfortunately, I have broken/sprained my wrist, and am unable to move my fingers without a fairly great amount of pain. This is only my right hand, but sadly, I am right-handed. For the next month, I will be unable to code, meaning no new versions or bugfixes.

So, if you find a bug, feel free to report it and don’t get discouraged if you don’t hear back.

For more information, download links and screen shots, check out the original thread.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
