Ok, so that failed too. I'm going to match the same partition numbers and redo the script/init to use the numbers you use.
Were you using the 3.0 kernel? FWIW, I haven't gotten that to boot on a non-standard boot partition yet. It seems like it's going to start up fine, but then it hangs in the middle with a (IMHO) not-so-helpful and possibly irrelevant logcat message.

Actually, I'm trying to use the kindle fire 6.3 insecure rom that was posted a few weeks ago.
Maybe that is the issue :P

Oh, okay, nevermind then. For some reason I thought you were using the 3.0 kernel (I should have just gone back to double check your other thread). I did get the 6.2.2 to work eventually with minimal bugs so I would think it's possible to do it with 6.3 unless Amazon changed something significant.

My original idea was to get 3.0 working there, but that was before 3.0 became as reliable as it is now. The only reason I would need to boot to alt, is for recharge, and netflix audio sync issues.

Update: So, apparently my issue was that I was using your original release and not the v2 release. I am now dual booting 3.0 as primary and kindle 6.3 as alternate.

eldarerathis, tried to send you a PM, but I'm not sure it went through.
