Use kffa to install the Google store or kindlefree. Just curious, what were you planning to do by installing twrp and keeping stock amazon os? You just want a method to easily recover from a brick or were you thinking of flashing a ROM at some point?

Please Read the instructions and use the debugger if you run into errors.
My own modified adb drivers for just about all kindles (includes old twrp and cm versions) HERE

Once you install the drivers, shut it off and unplug it, you will need to open a command prompt that's cd'd into a directory like kffa where you can run a fastboot command. Then run
Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product
it should say waiting for device, once it does plug your kindle in, it should go into fastboot mode and you can restore with kffa.

Hello,

I have the exact same problem as the original poster with my Kindle Fire HD 8.9". I tried downloading the drivers in your description. I connect the kindle and try to update the drivers for Jem-PVT-Prod-04. I direct my computer to install the drivers that I extracted, however it returns an error saying that "the hash for the file is not present in the specified catalog file. The file is likely corrupt or the victim of tampering." I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, this is my first time trying to root android. Thanks so much for the help!

You need to disable driver signature enforcement. Look it up on Google, I don't know the procedure offhand because I don't use windows 8.
