Hi, I bought I Kindle Fire HDX 7" off craigslist, apparently was stolen, have contacted Amazon they have it marked as cant be used/stolen/misplaced??? Can I use it or am I out of the money, I bought 2 from same person 1 is fine other one cant be registered w/Amazon cannot contact orginal seller, was a gift now one son will be without if I can't figure out a way to use it. I hear you can root it but I really don't know how or even what that means.
Thanks

Thanks I didn't do it yet, so I think I will wait and see if anything changes as the device becomes not so new in the marketplace.

Not that it helps you now, but in the future, if you buy a Kindle off of Craigslist have the seller give you the serial number so you can check it with Amazon to see if it's flagged as stolen.
