You sent me this link

So I installed arm-2008-11-24 which clams to support arm7.
Compiled a crude hello world C++ program using the eldk without drama.

After a lot of farting around with ubuntu, adding a line to
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1949", MODE="0666", GROUP="plugdev"
(the "1949" is the same number as in the the adb-usb.ini file used for 
rooting the device
used adb to "push" it to a fold on the Kindle Fire sdcard. some sort of 
manufacturer code?)

But I  was completely unable to do a chmod 755 (or 06755, whatever that 
is) on the "executable" either using adb or on he device itself.

There seem to be a lot of messy permission problems. The android.rules 
trick solved most of them.

Rooting is a pain. The instructions are barely coherent and no 
explanations are offered describing what is going on.
