How do I enable USB Debugging on Kindle Fire?


I bought the Amazon Kindle Fire but I can't get it to connect to my computer. I don't see an option to enable USB debugging anywhere either.

The Kindle Fire actually has USB Debugging set to enabled by default. If you want to use it however, you'll need to set up your Windows 7 computer to recognize it.

I'm soon publishing a full screenshot-guide for this, but in the meantime here are the basic steps.

  1. Install the Java JDK and Android SDK (the Android SDK requires the Java to run properly)
  2. Open up %userprofile%.androidadb_usb.ini and add 0x1949 to a separate line in it.
  3. Download the Amazon Google-Android USB Driver and update it on your USB connected Kindle.
  4. Restart the local ADB server. (restarting your computer also works)

The Kindle Fire should be recognized by ADB now!
