To start off the kindle had an older version of twrp and had a version of ice cream sandwich. Those work correctly and it continues to work correctly after a nandroid restore.

Fast forward to now, I installed the latest twrp and flashed the latest FFF v1.5 bootloader.

I flashed this CM11 nightly cm-11-20140702-NIGHTLY-otter.zip
and flashed latest gapps gapps-kk-20140606-signed.zip

After I finish flashing everything I can setup the kindle but once I reboot it goes into a bootloop at the CM logo that results in a colorful screen. If I power off and power on it just bootlopps at the CM logo. Not sure what else I can do. Any help is appreciated.

Forgot to add. I have tried flashing Pacman rom: pac_otter-nightly-20140701.zip and I get same results as above.

It's always been a clean flash

On a side note installing a jelly bean rom works fine and I can reboot without a problem.

Afaik, kitkat need twrp7, JB need twrp6.

Never thought about that. I just downloaded the version in the twrp thread.

OK so I have twrp 2.7.0.1. Here's the screenshot in recovery. Does your twrp look like that because my other twrp on other devices look different logo wise.

that should be fine, unless it did not install correctly. try the 2.7.1.0 zip version zip-openrecovery-twrp-2.7.1.0-otter.zip Install in old TWRP>wipe cache and dalvik>reboot
