I used TWRP v2.1.1 and everything seemed to be going ok, that and the normal kindle loaded just fine. I didn't have a change to play with it much, I'm a noob (obviously)
Before giving it to my friend I was going to restore it to factory settings. I did so in the normal kindle load. It turned off and now I can get it to load into TWRP only. The gray screen comes up, Instal, Backup, ext. It won't, however, load into the kindle fire interface anymore. It just goes to the white and orange KF screen and gets stuck, no animation. If I run the Kindle Fire Utility on my PC I can change it to 4000 and 4002. Thats about it... None of the other things seem to work. I can click on them, and they seem to load but nothing happens. I tried to use the "Obtain stock update" and nothing happened. All I want to do is get the original KF interface back for my friend I'm going to be giving this to. Is there a simple program a noob like me can use? I have read and read here on the forums for a few days and I'm more confused now than ever. Partially because I keep getting called for 911's in the middle of reading, lol. I'm sorry to bother you all, but if you can help me I'd appreciate it. I"ve already promised this thing to her and will just have to buy another one if I cant fix it.
