Kindle Fire Receiving 6.2.2 Update, Adds Full-Screen Browsing

What seems to be the most popular Android tablet out there right now, Amazon’s Kindle Fire, has received an OTA update starting a few days ago. As always, it initially broke root access, but our forum members have already found a workaround for that. So, there’s no point trying to prevent it now, else you won’t get the following features:

If you’ve already received and installed the OTA update, use BurritoRoot by recognized developer jcase, who has updated his tool to work with the new 6.2.2 version, to regain root. If not, then head over to this forum thread to download the pre-rooted update package flash-able with TWRP, courtesy of forum member nfinitefx45.
