How do I enable USB Debugging on Kindle Fire?

Recommended Posts

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!

      A few days ago I got an email from my provider that my disksspace for my blog reached its limit. And when I asked him what caused this, he told me I have been posting full sized images, instead of resized ones. So, big lesson for me: "Start resizing before posting/blogging". On my laptop at home, and on my xp machine at work, this isnt a problem. But I am also a heavy "Wordpress for Android" user.
      So the question is, how do I resize an image to at least 50% of the original quality on my Android?

      I use Office 2010 for making excellists I use for my work. Now I want to use those lists digital while im outdoors. Normally I print them out. But Ive got a Galaxy Tab and a iPad 1 from my boss to test stuff out. I loaded the checklist on both tablets, but the checkboxes ive put in the excel list dont show up anymore.
      Things ive tried:- Both tablets have VMWare installed. With this programm it's possible to use your desktop but on a tablet. With VMWare the checkboxes are visible and easy to use. But everytime you tick one, the 3g connection kicks in and I have to wait several seconds. So, it works, but not optimal. And there is no mouse so you have to do everything with gestures. Not very easy to do.
      On both tablets I have loaded the list in Polaris Office. Both times, no checkboxes. On my HTC One X, I loaded the list in Polaris, no checkboxes On both tablets and on my HTC One X I loaded the list in OfficeSuite Pro. No checkboxes. Anyone got any idea how to get checkboxes on a excel list to use on a tablet android or ios?
