Crafty hackers over at the XDA Developers forum have already figured out how to root the new Kindle Fire HD. Initially, some developers suggested that the new Kindles would be hack-reistant, but as the video above demonstrates, it's already been done.
If the fact that the Kindle Fire HD won't officially be available in Australia hasn't stopped you for getting one, RootzWiki has posted the full instructions on how to execute the root. But, as always, proceed with caution, because you don't want your shiny new tablet to end up bricked. [XDA Developers and RootzWiki via The Next Web]
