Step 6.
In windows device manger, remove all the fire phone devices listed.
Then run the KindleDivers.exe listed in step 7.
When you plug the phone back in windows "should" find and use the right drivers.

For reference, the drivers have now moved. The following is an extract from the latest release notes:


* Windows USB drivers have been removed from the tools directory. You may access them from the SDK Manager under Extras.

They're installed with the package Extras / Kindle Fire USB Driver and will be located at: android-sdk\extras\amazon\kindle_fire_usb_driver

Other than that, instructions work fine, thanks

Update: in the sdk manager, you must select 'kindle fire usb driver' under 'extras' now, and install that package. Then, you can find it in the sdk dir under sdk/extras/amazon/kindle_fire_usb_driver/KindleDrivers.exe
