I think when I wiped the system I cleared all the software to connect to any external device. I don't know if I can even get access to restore the original OS. If you haven't guessed by now I an a noob. I think you realized that with my adb commands with fastboot enabled. I got the impression you knew when I saw the *facepalm* comment the the beginning of you post. When my kindle is booted to twrp my computer does not recognize it. My computer will recognize as an adb device when in fastboot mode. My computer will recognize it as a kindle (with a yellow triangle in the device manager) when it is trying to boot with the white and blue logo. I don't know what to do at this point. Here is a screen shot with adb side load from twrp.
