    It is a store demo so it just runs a loop an doesn't show an error message. i plug it in the computer an nothing is on there as far as data. i have tried rooting but it doesn't recognize on the root. remember its a demo unit but it seems that you can make it fully functional

The Demo Kindle Fire Model Number 3HT7G is completely locked down. It is not possible to remove the Demo, reset the Kindle or Flash new Firmware using a Backup and Restore Utility like Kindle Fire First Aide. The Development Team of Kindle Fire First Aide is working on a procedure to reset these Kindles but the procedure will involve opening the Kindle which Voids the Warranty. Until we develop this procedure you are locked out. Sorry, I wish I had better news. Best regards, Chris Bryant - Prokennexusa at XDA Developers

    I just got a Kindle Fire HDX 7 today and was listed as as a store demo and in demo mode. I pushed the start button and both volume buttons at the same time for a little bit. The screen asked if I wanted to to erase all data which I did. Then there were two settings to reboot or go to factory settings. I chose the factory settings. The Kindle was shut off and then restarted. Then It all worked and was able to sign into my WiFi ,email and Amazon account. It was upgraded and works great. I hope it helps.

Power the tablet off.
Press the power button then press power + vol down until you get a menu
Select factory reset, this should wipe it out.

    My kindle is unable to download books or magazines now.


    Well, i suggest that you just root it and install Kinology. It worked just fine for me. Or you just instal Cyanogen mod 12.1. Worst case Scenario, Factory reset. Wipe it all.

    How do I install Googleplay store app?


    If you need to install Google play on your Kindle Fire HD, root your Kindle Fire device at first. However, you can't root it like other Android device with one click rooting tool - iRoot, Framaroot, Kingo Root... The rooting process may be a little complicated while it's effective and safe.
    For more detailed instruction, please refer to: http://www.iroot.com/how-to-articles/how-to-root-kindle-fire.html

    Afterwards, install the Google play. Open run.bat. Choose option 6 and install it.

    How do I get my kindle fire out of demo mode


    The Kindle Fire Series 2 Tablet Demo Model number ZHS-1013 is locked down. These Kindle's are unbreakable, period. My development team has spent days trying to break into the demo units. We had limited success with extensive work and was only able to obtain Root after replacing the SD Card, which is a very difficult process. We used our package Kindle Fire First Aide for the process which is designed to do several different tasks on the Kindle including Root, full system restore and has scripts to reboot any Kindle Fire Series Two tablet into Fastboot (except a demo model released in the last 3 months). If you have any questions feel free to ask us additional questions.
