I just got mine today and I'd like to know this as well. I'm having some difficulty with the kf utility.

Thanks for the links. I'm really struggling getting ADB to recognize my kindle, even though device manager lists it as a composite ADB device. It does list it under Samsung Android Devices though. Could be messing up due to leftover drivers from when I rooted my Galaxy Nexus. I'm going to try to erase all android related everything on the computer and start from scratch. I saw that recommended elsewhere.

So no matter what I do my KF drivers are loading under "SAMSUNG Android Phone," not just "Android Phone," although it does show as "Android Composite Device." So "ADB devices" always comes up blank. I've searched here and XDA and a few folks seem to have had this issue, though there was never any resolution posted. Any suggestions?

Have you installed the adv drivers?
If you haven't I suggest starting here:

I did that yes. Still didn't work. Instead I used northmendo's root tool for mac. Worked flawlessly.
