Quote:

fastboot -w
fastboot flash recovery twrp.2.7.0.1.img
fastboot reboot

once rebooting I had to re-wipe (advance wipe) sdcard/cache/data since when I tried to mount them I could not check the boxes.

now i STILL cannot mount it and adb does not recognize it.
I'm using mac and I tried
Quote:

android update adb

but still adb can't see the kindle and I can't mount it through twrp

...however, I'm still able to reboot in bootloader and use fastboot
I don't think I can flash a .zip rom from fastboot tho...and I'm not sure how to transfer files on the kindle to flash them from twrp...any idea?

thanks a ton!!

-- edit --
i already modified the ~/.android/adb_usb.ini file adding 01949 and then running
adb kill-server
adb devices

but what I get is just
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached

and nothing to it...the "adb shell" still gives me "device not found"!!

SCORE !!!

dunno why twrp was the problem! the new recovery that you linked worked like magic, adb worked perfectly, I already flashed a rom and it works!!

so...why wouldn't twrp allow me to use adb or mount disks through usb?!

thanks so much for the help!!

Guessing it doesn't use the twrp theme, that was causing trouble.
