I have a KF2 (non HD) which is rooted and has both superuser and SuperSU. I rooted via this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2075959.

I then tried to use KFU to install TWRP and other stuff, but I couldn't get it to mount in any mode. ADB was online, but the mode showed as unknown, so I couldn't do anything with it. I have installed Google Play, and various launchers, etc, but I can't do anything that requires access to recovery, as I have no recovery on the Kindle. If I install and run this app/script, will this give me access to TWRP, and therefore full root and recovery access? What are the risks involved?

I am no stranger to rooting Android devices and installing roms, etc, but the background stuff on the Kindle is new to me, so I am still finding my way around this stuff. I would be grateful for any help offered to me. TIA.

It's the risk of bricking that worries me. Also, do I run the script as admin, by right clicking and selecting that option, or do I just run it normally. I'm on a Windows 8 laptop, if that makes a difference.

Download the APK (Wireless install option via app) at the beginning of this thread. It worked perfectly for my KF2 (regular). It changes the screen, and provides a boot menu. (I had to get used to boot menu.)

I would not. It was not meant for that device, nor has anyone tried it....I mean, if you have a fastboot cable handy, and don't mind unbricking something.....sure you can try it. Unless Kilo knows more, sometimes software overlaps for device, but because I don't REALLY know how this script works, I can't say what the outcome would be. It could do nothing, or it could do something, something bad, or something good, no one really knows.

What you're looking for though, is the guides for your device, which I shall link below.

I am assuming you have root since you're here....

Use this guide by Hashcode.

If you need the guide to rooting still, that is here.

Me too! Success first time here, thanks very much fmkilo.

From a 10.2.6 factory install, I used bin4ry's root script - took a few goes to get it going right (installed SDK and plugged in, device showed as "Kindle"; then installed Kindle HD ADB driver and device shows up as Android Composite ADB Device) and I had to kill the adb.exe process which the SDK installed and had running in the background. I DIDN'T need to elevate UAC privileges; indeed if I did that I just got path errors with the script. Local user privileges are all it needs, it seems.

I then used the cordless (wireless) APK install method, I thought it hadn't worked as the device booted, but I kept on seeing brief flashes of the Kindle bootscreen on top of the UI (which did respond, although very laggily). Seems this was just part of the rooting though as I left it for a minute or two and eventually the MS-DOS prompt reported success. The KF2 rebooted, and I got the blue logo bootscreen as expected. The device then booted into stock ROM perfectly.

My PC then took a little bit longer than usual for the device to show up again as an Android Composite ADB device, but it did happen eventually (a couple of minutes after booting).
