Hey Blockheads!

 Installing TWRP...
 If we get stuck here for awhile, power the kindle on and off a few times.
 You should also check device manager for "kindle" If so, rerun the driver
 installer that came packaged with KFU.

 If we get stuck here a long time, check the ADB drivers in windows.
 Fastboot uses a different device than ADB, so make sure it is installed as an
 ADB device. If you see "kindle" in device manager, you need to install the
 drivers. You can also try running install_drivers.bat in the drivers folder.

 Do NOT unplug the kindle if we are stuck here, leave it plugged in and on.
 Do NOT touch the kindle at all if we are stuck.
 Setting Normal Bootmode.

 Please wait...

It has been a good 45 minutes. If anyone here is very tech-savvy or has rooted their device before, is this normal?

This is a common problem for first time rooters :

Was your Boot Status 4000 in Kindle Fire Utility?

If not, try holding the power button for a long time, run install_drivers.bat, then turn it on and try re-rooting, you are probably stuck in fastboot mode.

Funny that I rooted my kindle fire.

Yes, it was at 4000.

EDIT: Now it says 4002.

You're obviously stuck in fastboot mode then.

You'll have to re-install the drivers because most likely they are not functioning properly, then hold the power button for a while to turn it off, then turn the kindle on again and try rooting again.

If not, refer to :
