TWRP Manager is not working for me either

try Flashify with
openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img
and update-kindle-6.3_D01E_4019920.bin rename update.zip
place both on kindle's sd card
open Flashify>allow root access>recovery image>choose file>select>openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img
flash recovery? select Yep!
Flashing

reboot now

press power button for boot menu
select recovery

once twrp boots
select install>update.zip>wipe cache and dalvik>reboot
should reboot to stock Kindle fire
it will not be rooted nor will Twrp installed.

if that Twrp does not install try
this zip version zip-otter-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze(sd_shadow).zip
open flashify>zipfile>choose file>
flash file> Yep!
File Path>Use provided
Flash Complete>reboot now

allow cm to boot up
reboot
press power button for boot menu
select recovery

OK I tried the img file, rebooted, no blue screen to enter recovery.

Tried the zip file, rebooted into CM, rebooted again no blue screen. Rebooted again, no blue screen. Tried a third time and same thing. For whatever reason it just doesn't seem to want to take.

Sorry to be such a pain, I was really hoping this wouldn't require too much of anyone's time.

you don't get a blue screen, it's black with
Kindle (in white) Fire (in Blue) in the middle of screen
and press power button for boot menu (near power button)
when you press the power button it will cycle through 3 options
normal boot, recovery, reset boot mode
see FIRE FIRE FIRE on the Kindle Fire

Sorry I should have worded that differently. I only get the initial Kindle Fire screen with the orange fire, a blank screen for a few seconds then directly into CM9. I never get the blue Fire portion.

Tried both versions of FIREFIREFIRE, same thing. No change in the color of Power light or the Fire icon.

When flashing the zip files I am leaving everything as default before hitting Yup!. Recover is set to TWRP or Philz and none of the Wipe options are checked. Is that correct?

First thing is you have to get the drivers to install..
Uninstall...re-install...try different drivers until you get it.
Then try it all again....if everything fails again try wiping the recovery partition...

I was finally able to get it going.

I ran the Kindle Unbrick utility, no reason why but figured wth at this point. After running the "Other..." fix it was stuck at the Kindle Fire screen with the orange coloring. At this point I was able to run the Restore2Stock tool. After their support jumped on and fixed some partition issues it appears I am off and running. Thank you guys for all your help, especially you sc_shadow!
