Hi guys, my kindle fire hd is rooted or i think its rooted, for some reason though i cant wipe it
the os is corrupted and needs a full wipe and reinstall to fix but here is the problem.

i cant wipe the os... for some reason the internal SDCARD is read only and wont erase.
i cant copy files to the sdcard via windows as it says read only i cant delete files from the sdcard.....

when i run a full wipe via recovery it shows that its wipeing but it does not really wipe...
everytime i install a rom it says complete i reboot and its still trying to load the corrupted os not a fresh install ....

im stuck here.

Did you give ES File Explorer r/w permissions? If you are flat out stuck then you will need to restore via fastboot and will need to pick up a fastboot cord.

Edit: Make sure you're using the most up to date TWRP from Hashcode's thread too.

The newest TWRP for the Kindle Series is 2.6.3.1 You're version is a little dated. Unfortunately you can't flash TWRP in TWRP.

These guys ship pretty fast http://shop.teamblackhat.info/Factor...s-motadapt.htm it's an adapter for the end of your USB cord. Don't suppose you have a Motorola USB cord laying around? Because that's all a fastboot cord is.

When in twrp can you hit reboot then hit fastboot? If you can and it goes into fastboot you can verify what kindle it is with "fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product" and it will read the codename of the kindle.

That's because adb commands don't work with fastboot. Tate indeed means its a 2012 HD 7" model, so it is possible in its current state to fix without a fastboot cable, but if anything goes wrong you will need one. Go into the hd7 dev section and download the 2.7.0.0 twrp flash able zip and open it in windows, from there navigate into the cache folder and find the .IMG file, extract it to wherever fastboot is stored, from there I think you just can flash it via fastboot and have a working recovery. Something like "fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery *insert twrp image name here*"
