First of all I am new to this forum but i have read almost every thread about this subject but i can't seem to find my exact situation.
So yesterday I decided I wanted to root my kindle fire HD 7 and put Cynangonmod on it. So i found this video of a guy explaining it and I downloaded the files he provided and I followed his steps.
That is when the first problem came up. He wanted me to install the ADB drivers which I couldn't get done. It told me something like '' could not install the drivers, please install them manually ''.
Thats is when I came to you guys and I noticed there were a lot of people having the same problem. I had to download some other replacement drivers and install those but even that didn't work so I was basically out of luck.
After a couple hours I managed to get the drivers functioning after deleting them and installing them again. I was surprised this actually worked because I did try that before.
But anyway the drivers were working and my kindle responded just like in the video. I followed the steps in the video and I was happy to see some progression. So my device basically was rooted at this point. So just like in the video I transferred the recovery files, CM-11 and the GAPPS I downloaded to my Kindle while strictly following the steps in the video. Next up I used ES file manager to open up the APK file and install it. At this point I exactly followed the tutorial by selecting the right files and checking the right boxes in the Fire Flash menu. Everything looked OK.
I flashed and installed the script like in the tutorial and pressed rebooted into recovery. Unfortunately this is when the party was over.
Instead of the device booting up and saying Kindle Fire with Fire being orange and turning Blue after a couple seconds, my device just booted without turning blue and was basically looping the hole time.
This was a real bummer since I was so happy that I luckily passed the hole ADB driver issue.
Now when I connect my Kindle to my computer nothing happens....just nothing...my computer doesn't even recognize my Kindle at all. So I decided to search the web for this bootloop problem and I downloaded several utility's which should unbrick my Kindle. But since my computer doesn't even recognize my Kindle actually being plugged in these tools will never work anyway.
I have no idea what is going on but it seems like it's the ADB drivers not functioning again? and what I should do now? Or can I just throw my Kindle in the trash?
This is the video I used on YouTube. You might want to watch this to understand my situation.
The files I downloaded are in the description of the video. I do not have the unbrick utilities and the replacement drivers anymore. But that doesn't matter now anyway since my computer doesn't recognize my device.
Please help me guys!!
