mmesh,

First let me apologize for the delay, I was out helping my Father yesterday who is a quadriplegic. Your question if our tutorials are compatible with the Kindle Fire HD 8.9", the answer is yes, all our tutorials work with Kindle Fire HD 8.9", the Kindle Fire HD 7" and the Kindle Fire 2:

[ROOT][HOW TO] Root the Kindle Fire 7" HD and 2 with Windows - Noob (Simple) Version

Just flashed TWRP to my kindle fire hd and wanted to say that there is no need for a factory cable, just use
adb shell su -c "reboot recovery"
... and it boots into fastboot. Didn't find that in your threads concerning fastboot etc.

best regards

freaksworth,

Yes, we are aware of this, the Factory USB Cable is for the Kindle Fire HD 7" and the Kindle Fire 2, do not ever use it on the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" damage will result. Up until 1 week ago, you had to use a Factory USB Cable but recently Hascode has cracked the Bootloader allowing you to boot like any other Android.

There are several ways to enable Fastboot on the Kindle Fire HD 8.9":

Turn the Kindle Fire HD 8.9" off, plug into USB and type:

Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product
While you see <waiting for device> - turn the Kindle on, it will boot into Fastboot.

Once you are done, hold the power down for 20 seconds or type:

Code:
fastboot reboot -i 0x1949
To exit Recovery. Now once you have TWRP on the Kindle Fire HD 7" or 2 you can enter the Recovery without a Fastboot cable by:

Code:
adb shell su -c "reboot recovery"

freaksworth,

This statement can be confusing to people, we just tried to boot 3 different Kindle Fire HD 7" using this method:

Code:
adb shell su -c "reboot bootloader"
None of these would boot into Fastboot. Maybe we are missing something like Hashcode Method as outlined here:

  1. Download Stack override file to Root of ADB: http://goo.im/devs/Hashcode/tate/stack
  2. Download kfhd7-freedom-boot.img (USED ONLY THE FIRST TIME -- .zip files will have their own boot.img's from now on) to Root of Fastboot: http://goo.im/devs/Hashcode/tate/kfhd7-freedom-boot.img
  3. Download TWRP Recovery to Root of Fastboot: http://goo.im/devs/Hashcode/tate/kfh...0-recovery.img
Then following Hashcode Method as outlined here:

Code:
adb push stack /data/local/tmp/
adb shell su -c "dd if=/data/local/tmp/stack of=/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/system bs=6519488 seek=1"
Then following Hashcode Method as outlined here:

Code:
adb shell su -c "mount -o remount,rw ext4 /system"
adb shell su -c "mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak"
adb shell su -c "mount -o remount,ro ext4 /system"
Then following Hashcode Method as outlined here - Be sure the Kindle is Powered off prior to starting the flash process:

Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash boot kfhd7-freedom-boot.img
Then following Hashcode Method as outlined here - While you see <waiting for device> turn the Kindle on then proceed:

Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery kfhd7-twrp-2.3.3.0-recovery.img
fastboot -i 0x1949 reboot
By the way, Hashcode is a complete genius to be able to figure this out on the Kindle Fire 7" HD! Now you are able to use this command to boot into Recovery:

Code:
adb shell su -c "reboot bootloader"

freaksworth,

No worries, we just thought we were going crazy since that command has been around for a long time. We just did not want people to think they could simply boot the Kindle into Fastboot - we have been trying this for the last year, this is why we say Hashcode is a genius.
