Please do not hot link to my download. Link to the post and please don't use my work without asking.


Version 0.6.7 is up for download (no new root options)

Added general android tools:

Rebooting the device

Rebooting in to Recovery

Backing up your photos to your Mac

Fixing File permissions


Version 0.6.5 is available at the website.

- Updated the Recovery to TWRP 2.2.2.1 for the Kindle Fire


Version 0.6.4 changes

- Changed Kindle Fire recovery to TWRP.

- Updated Kindle Fire bootloader to FireFireFire 1.4a

- Added Kindle Fire recovery and bootloader updater for user who just want to update to the latest versions.


BreakDroid is a work in progress. My goal is to make a tool for Mac users that will root several different android phones and tablets as well as install the android sdk (adb).

It is very important to note that I only made the tools to automate these processes. All the developers of the root exploits and recoveries are listed below.

Current supported Devices-
Kindle Fire - Tested Version 6.2.2., 6.3 & 6.3.1
Galaxy Nexus - Seems to work. Tested with version 0.4.2+
Galaxy Note - Needs more testers - Will only work on some notes.
Droid Razr - Should also work on other Droid branded phones

All phones that can be rooted by GingerBreak
All phones that can be rooted by psneuter
All phones that can be rooted by zergRush - has been tested and works on many devices. vCheck the comments on the download page.

My Kindle Fire is running v6.3, and I'm attempting to do all of this on a Mac. I came across BreakDroid, which is just what I was looking for. But I have a question...

What recovery is installed when using BreakDroid? I'd like to use ROM Manager to install a new ROM, but when I go to download a ROM I'm prompted with:

"You must have ClockworkMod Recovery installed before continuing! Install the recovery through ROM Manager first."

If I choose Install, I have to confirm my phone model, with the only option being "Full Android on Blaze or SDP"

After confirming, I'm now greeted with the following message, with YES and NO as options:

"Full Android on Blaze or SDP does not have an officially supported ClockworkMod Recovery yet. Have you installed a ClockworkMod based recovery manually?"

If the recovery is based on ClockworkMod, then I believe that I will be Ok to proceed.

Thanks in advance!

Does my phone need to be activated before this will work? I have a replacement GNex from Verizon but every time I try this the Terminal Window never gets past 'looking for device'. I also have Android File Transfer installed so wondering if that could interfere. TIA.

It shouldn't have to be activated. You just need to put it in fastboot mode. The app will tell you how.
