How to update TWRP if you're stuck in TWRP

Hey,

I've tried to update my Kindle Fire HD 8.9 to the newest CM11 version, but I wasn't careful enough to update my TWRP 2.4.4.0 beforehand to the newest version, resulting in a Kindle that is stuck in recovery (TWRP).
I managed to load with ADB the newest TWRP version (2.7) on the device, but I can't seem to be able to install the file from TWRP (it only recognizes the CM11 and Google apps files in the folder, but not the kfhd8-twrp-2.7.0.0-recovery.img file I loaded).

Any chance anyone knows to make this happen so I can get back to using the Kindle?
(unfortunately, I failed to do a backup and I don't want to wipe everything since I have a quite a few files that I won't be able to restore)

Thanks!

Hey Shadow,

Thanks a lot, that really helps!

I'll try to flash in Fastboot mode, but just in case, do you know where one can find a flashable zip twrp?

Oh, sorry! I read it too quickly, and thought it was part of the signature.

Followed the link, updated... got my Kindle back!

Thank you very much, couldn't have done it without your help!!!
