Sign [Q]ADB works, but fastboot won't recognize device. Can't update TWRP to 2.7 for kitka

Hello.

I have a KFHD 7" happily running under Hashcode's CM10.0. I'd like to update to kitkat.
For that, it seems I need to upgrade my recovery from TWRP 2.4 to 2.7. ( If the rom should install under TWRP 2.4, let me know, cause I got an error when I tried. )

So, after messing a bit with my drivers, I got ADB to work fine.

However, I need fastboot to update recovery. My Kindle can go into fastboot, no problem.

But windows just won't recognise it. "Fastboot devices" always show no devices connected.

I tried with various drivers ( including those from QEMU thread ) on 2 differents computers.

So I'm starting to wonder if there is something I missed in the virious threads. Is there something I should know that would prevent me from seing the device under fastboot but not ADB ?

You need to setup fastboot in your environment. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oaNM-lt_aHw

You don't need fastboot to update recovery, find hashcode's twrp thread and download the flashable zip, you just flash it from in twrp and reboot into recovery again and it will be updated.

Stupid question, but are you cd-ing into the directory where fastboot is (if you haven't added it to the PATH variable)?
