Getting ADB Working (Windows)

1. Make sure you have JDK7 installed.

2. Install the Android SDK [1]

3. In the SDK Manager, Uncheck Android 4.0, Check Android 2.3.3, and check the Google USB Driver Package (under extras). Install them.

4. Paste the following code below [Google.NTx86] and [Google.NTamd64] located at C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\extra\google\usb_driver\android_winusb.inf

;Kindle Fire

%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006

%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_1949&PID_0006&MI_01

5. Navigate to your home directory (C:\Users\username\), inside the .android folder, create/edit a file called adb_usb.ini. Make sure the contents of the file is nothing but 0x1949.

6. Plug your kindle in with a micro-usb cable, and go to device manager. Right click your unknown device kindle, and click "Update device software", and click Browse my computer. For the file location, it's C:\Program Files\Android\android-sdk\extra\google\usb_driver.

7. Open a command prompt and cd to where you have the sdk installed, and then cd to platform-tools.

8. Upon typing adb kill-server, followed by adb devices, you should see a device in the list (otherwise you did something wrong!)
