How to Enable USB Debugging on the Kindle Fire HD

Unlike the original Kindle Fire, the new HD version doesn’t have USB debugging enabled by default. Because the Kindle Fire HD has a custom “Amazondroid” interface, the option to enable debugging isn’t in the same place as other Android devices. But fear not, I’ll show you were it is and how to turn it on. And hey…it’s a lot easier than building a mosquito flamethrower.

That’s it! USB Debugging is now enabled for the Kindle Fire HD! Connect it to your PC requires a few more steps that I’ll talk about in my next Fire HD segment on connecting the device over ADB.
