I have the same issue with my Kindle Fire HDX 7" - jiggle and wiggle to get it to charge. It was purchased in 2013. Will this fix work with mine?

I'm sorry I took so long to respond. I don't have personal experience with the HDX, but here's a link to instructions someone else made on iFixit: Kindle Fire HDX 7" USB Charging Port Replacement

Also, here's a quick video review for an HDX teardown, to give you an idea of the level of whether you feel up to the task: Kindle Fire HDX 7" Teardown

It looks to be more difficult than the regular HD 7. On the plus side though, it seems the USB Charging port is a plug-in component, which does not require soldering to replace. That's a good thing always. I hope this helps you.
