    that is why you root, make your changes, and then unroot. Then amazon video will work just fine.

    If your Kindle Fire is stuck @ the logo screen after attempting to root it, it is just stuck in fastboot mode. Follow the instructions on xda-developers by clicking the link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=20421225
