[Q] How do I get my Kindle Fire HD 8.9 back to factory default?
For starters, I apologize if any of this sounds like I don't know what I'm talking about because frankly, I don't know what I'm talking about.
Recently (this Christmas) my mother got me a Kindle Fire HD 8.9". I decided to follow a guide from a youtube user and put a second bootloader (twrp) and CM 10.1 on my Fire, only to find that half of the apps didn't work. I couldn't watch youtube videos or netflix, or even read books through the kindle app.
This made me angry because here I am freaking out trying to get my Kindle back to factory defaults so I can enjoy it again.
I've looked at countless guides on how to do this, but none were clear and all of them required big downloads that I'm not even sure would work.
Basically, I wiped the CM android os with TWRP, and I'm at the TWRP screen.
I downloaded the 8.4.6 amazon kindle update from the Amazon website and adb pushed it onto my sdcard. This didn't work; the Amazon update file I downloaded was a .bin, so I converted it to a .zip which apparently made my Kindle unable to open it and update.
I am able to get my Kindle into fastboot mode, but I have no clue where to go after this. Can someone please help? I just want my Kindle back the way it was.
