[How-To] Revert from OtterX Project to Stock Kindle Fire Partitions
and
Flashing TWRP in FFF bootloader For Kindle Fire 1

Recommend using update-kindle-prerooted.6.3.3.v1.zip rather than update-kindle-6.3.3_D01E_4112920.bin

Install kindle Fire DriversDownload Kindle Fire Utility extract file from zip, run install.drivers.bat

Download Files Links in 2nd post
TWRP 2.2.2.1: for Stock Rom, custom Gindgerbread(CM7), ICS(CM9), and Jellybean (CM10) roms
TWRP 2.2.2.1 - 2.6.1.0: ICS(CM9), and Jellybean (CM10) roms
TWRP 2.6.3.0 or better: For KitKat(CM11) Roms
Bootloader: Otter X Bootloader 2.05 seems to work fine with Otter/Blaze TWRP 2.7.x.x, Doesn't work well with TWRP 2.2.2.1, use FFF 1.4a/1.5
ADB Files
Rom: Stock or Custom/GApps

Change Partitions from Otter X[ to Amazon
Reboot Kindle Fire, When you see bootloader, press power button once to open boot menu, select Advanced
Open the bootloader menu by pressing [POWER]
Use 1-2 SHORT presses of [POWER] to highlight "ADVANCED -->"
Use a LONG press of [POWER] to select ADVANCED MENU
Use 5 SHORT presses of [POWER] to highlight "PARTITION MODE: OTTERX" (if this is Amazon you can skip step 3)
LONG press [POWER] to open "PARTITION MODE MENU"
Use 4 SHORT presses of [POWER] to highlight "[CONFIRM] SET MODE: Amazon"
WARNING THIS WILL ERASE THE CONTENTS OF YOUR "SDCARD" and USERDATA!!!! Before doing this step you should have backed up ANYTHING IMPORTANT and pulled it off of your Kindle!
LONG press will select this option and your system, cache, userdata will be changed to the Amazon layout (and ERASED)
Now use short [POWER] presses to navigate BACK and then to "RECOVERY"

STEP 4: WIPE PARTITIONS IN RECOVERY
[Main Menu] Wipe -> Advanced -> check "Cache" and Swipe
[Main Menu] Reboot -> Recovery (wait for it to come back into TWRP)
[Main Menu] Wipe -> "Format Data", type "yes" and hit enter
[Main Menu] Wipe -> Advanced -> check "System" and Swipe

Custom Bootloader and Recovery for Amazon Partitions
Two options Push/ Install in TWRP, or Flash in Bootloader
a. Push/Install
Code:
adb push fff-u-boot_v1.4a.zip /sdcard
Code:
adb pushzip-openrecovery-twrp-2.7.1.0-otter.zip  /sdcard
and select install fff-u-boot_v1.4a.zip, when install is finished reboot, select recovery in bootmenu
install zip-openrecovery-twrp-2.7.1.0-otter.zip, when install is finished reboot, select recovery in bootmenu
then install zip-otter-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.zip if you are installing CM7 or stock rom
if you can't enter recovery after a reboot, you will need to flash recovery in Bootloader/Fastboot Mode

b. Flash in Bootloader
power off kindle, open command prompt on PC, enter a command, press enter, and Power on Kindle
for Bootloader
Code:
fastboot flash bootloader fff-u-boot_v1.5.bin
For Recovery

For Reboot
Code:

if you get a

Troubleshooting and Links
I recommend using my update-kindle-prerooted.6.3.3.v1.zip first Even if you want pure stock
The Full stock will flash the stock Bootloader, and stock recovery, even if the partitions are not right.
If the Pre-rooted zip boots fine, then you can try the update-kindle-6.3.3_D01E_4112920.zip
if the Pre-root does not boot, you still have TWRP/FFF, and it is easier to fix.

In TWRP 2.7.1.0, I am unable to flash TWRP 2.2.2.1 or TWRP 2.6.1 ... Error message is: "This package is for blaze/otter devices; this is a "otterx".

Is there a workaround?

edit; try zip-otter-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.otterx.zip
or just flash in bootloader with
Code:
fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img
zip-otter-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.otterx.zip will install in otterx twrp but will still need FFF bootloader 1.4-1.5

also TWRP 2.2.2.1 does not work with oterx 2.05 bootloader, so you need to flash FFF 1.4 or 1.5 first.

I was already on v1.04a bootloader so flashing TWRP 2.8 turned out not to work as it could not mount storage. So I went back to OtterX and will try again tomorrow. Thanks for your help; I will post here my results.

I did. I was not able to flash anything in TWRP 2.8.0.1. To reinstall OtterX, I used fastboot to install FFF2.05 and TWRP 2.7.1.

Do you recommend I flash 2.8.0.1 before attempting to revert to Amazon partition mode? I don't want to revert to stock but want to go back to CM10.2, which gives me significantly better battery life.
