I recently got a kindle fire for testing, but had some issues connecting it to ADB.

  • Get the Vendor id by typing:
    lsusb 
    The line we are looking for is:
    Bus 003 Device 026: ID 1949:0006 Lab126
  • Add the vendor id (1949) to /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules as per normal
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="1949", MODE="0006"
    Usually a device would work here but it wasnt happening with the fire …
  • The solution is as per this link: StackOverflow
    You also need to add the vendor id to ~/.android/adb_usb.ini (you need to check the file doesn’t exist first).
    echo "0x1949" >>~/.android/adb_usb.ini
    echo "0x0006" >>~/.android/adb_usb.ini
  • Then we restart the ADB server and the device should be shown:
    adb kill-server
    adb start-server
    adb devices
