Accidentally deleted everything, Kindle Fire stuck in TWRP

Hi,

I accidentally deleted everything through TWRP. I wanted the kindle fresh for my new ROM, and thought that deleting everything would make for a cleaner install. I was wrong and now all my kindle is good for is TWRP.

When in TWRP, windows doesn't recognize the kindle. Because of this, I cannot mount it. Windows and the kindle fire utility recognizes it as adp when i boot regularly (which is just a black screen) but cannot do anything since it will not enter normal or fast mode.

I don't know what to do, nothing is working. When I restart the kindle it says superuser is not installed, and asks if I would like to install it. I say yes, and it fails. Super user WAS installed before I deleted everything.

Any ideas?

Some more info

1. shell doesn't work

2. it looks like the bootmode is stuck in fastboot, but KFU won't recognize it, even though windows does.

3. Windows does not recognize the kindle when in TWRP recovery mode. If It did i could simply transfer files over and flash it...

4. If I try to boot normally, I get a black screen, but FKU recognizes ADP. It does not recognize what bootmode it's in though.


I believe FFF is working as I have the blue kindle logo and options in the bootloader, but no matter what I do I can't figure it out.

I REALLY need some help from you more experienced guys

thanks for reading

I'm making some progress, I'm in fastboot command prompt and have access. But what do I do from here?

How can I install a system from fastboot? It looks like all the guides say to install twrp and go from there but I have twrp and it wont communicate with my pc!!!

I went to boot and at the black screen tried to push the stock kindle FW. it failed for some reason

c:\kfu\tools>adb devices
List of devices attached
0123456789ABCDEF device


c:\kfu\tools>adb push C:\update.zip \tmp
failed to copy 'C:\update.zip' to '\tmp': Read-only file system

c:\kfu\tools>

Here is me trying adb devices in recovery mode


c:\kfu\tools>adb reboot recovery

c:\kfu\tools>adb devices
List of devices attached

Interestingly, rebooting into recovery just brought me to the bootloader. it wouldnt boot into recovery by itself, I have to manually do it through the bootloader. Immediately, booting into recovery disconnects my kindle from the pc, and I hear the sound in windows and the kindle dissapears from device manager.
