Specs: Linux i686
I am attempting to convert my KindleFire HD 89 to pute Android. The device is rooted and I am using Ubuntu 12.04. When I type in the following at the command prompt,

adb push stack /data/local/tmp/

the output I get is

Cannot stat 'stack'; No such file or directory.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Doesn't make sense. Kindle Fire is already running Android.

Thanks for the reply, phil22. This is true, however the Kindle Fire 8.9 HD is repleat with Amazon invasive advertising to the point where it is annoying. Where "Favorites" were listed in prior KFs, now is listed "Users who bought this also bought..." when you select an app/book from the Carosel. Even the start up screen displays an ad. One of the reasons that I use and recommend open source is because of the lack of advertising. A pure Android tablet would be free of Amazon's oppressive commercials.

I have found the answer. "stack" was not in my working directory (~/Downloands/KindleFireRootMacLinux). I downloaded KindleFireHD89Root.zip from rootmykindlefire.com, extracted the file and copied stack from that directory into the one above. Problem solved. I got this idea from here.
