[Root][TWRP][FFF][CWM]Kindle Fire Utility v0.9.6 (5/09/12) [First Gen Only]

Ugh. HDD death forced me to get a new drive and reinstall Windows. I have successfully installed the drivers in the KFU zip which I downloaded fresh today. Device Manager has no unknown devices, and I have an Android ADB interface in the list.

Right now it is plugged into the computer and the Kindle is displaying the "you can now transfer files from your computer to Kindle" screen with the Disconnect button, but it's not showing up. It also is not showing up in the Disk Management area in Computer Management. Also, KFU says ADB status is "offline" and boot status is "Unknown".

This is Win7 x64. Any ideas?

edit: fixed it. Unplugged the device and installed the drivers, then plugged it in. Voila, mounts in Windows.

Well, I just updated FFF on both of my KFs using the manual method. If you have made a factory cable it's as easy as powering up with the cable connected and running:

fastboot flash bootloader u-boot.bin

Power down the device and unplug the cable. No need to switch boot modes back when using a factory cable.

Mac/Linux version of Kindle Fire Utility
I've ported the utility to both Mac and Linux platforms. Should work fine, but YMMV. Download the following:

Missing GMail APK?
I used the utility last night and got my kindle rooted and the Market & other Google apps installed, but I noticed that the Google GMail app was not loaded onto my Fire. I was under the impression this was in the Google apps collection. Is it supposed to be there and if so, anybody have an ideas as to why it may not have been installed on my tablet? I would prefer to use the Google GMail app as that allows me to also connect to my corporate GMail account while the Kindle email app only allows a connection to my personal GMail account.

It will only install things that you cant find on the google market.

So use the market to go install gmail =]

I tried the tricks.

I guess I should include the fact that I'm running Windows 7 through Parallels on a Mac. I keep seeing the message "cannot run recovery/recovery.img." I thought this was because it was not downloading the recovery image so I downloaded it myself, placed it in the recovery folder and renamed it "recovery.img" but I'm still getting the same error.

-I would try using the tool that was ported to the Mac but I'm better with this stuff when I use Windows. I couldn't get the drivers to install on my Mac so I couldn't run the tool.
