got it working. Turns out the fastboot mode shares the same adb driver and I have to install the driver manually. Once driver is installed, it works great.

Just wanted to say thanks. I recently wiped my adw launcher settings accidentaly. I didn't want to put all my icons back so I went into recovery and walla, everything back like I had it.

Would you mind to tell me what driver exactly did you install? I suppose you get into fastboot with device on by Onemeila tool?

Enter fastboot by running:
"
adb shell
su
reboot bootloader
"

KF will reboot into fastboot and the device name in device manager is "Jem-PVT-Prod-04" without any driver.
At this point, device is in fastboot mode but normal fastboot commands will NOT work.

Manually install the amazon adb driver(should be somewhere like c:\programs files\amazon\drivers) name is "Android Composite ADB Interface", ignore the Windows warning and contiune. Fastboot commands start working after that.

Than you very much. Installed a driver with different method (I choose "kindle fire" from devices list and windows installed proper driver), but finally it works. You showed me the way. THX

Re: [BOOTLOADER] Install 2nd-bootloader for Custom ROMs on KFireHD 8.9
I'm having an issue when trying to flash the recovery.

I read through and someone renamed the file to just "recovery" then used that command but it still didn't work? Any ideas?

Honest answer.

Idk..

lol... I'm a noob at this and am lucky I haven't bricked any of my devices yet. I have successfully rooted and flashed ROMs on a Nexus 7, HTC amaze 4g, t989 s2, and t999 s3.... But this kindle is giving me a hard time.

For today I will quit while I'm ahead, with it rooted and running GO launcher.

Any suggestions on how to edit the paths? Yes, I realize that's a dumb question but I have never played around in command prompts until now.

Thanks

Well, if the prompt when you open the command window says C:\Users\HP> like in your screenshot, make sure kfhd8-twrp-2.3.3.0-recovery.img is in that directory, otherwise fastboot won't find it.
