Watch first 2 mins of video posted below to see how to reboot to TWRP.
2. Pick a rom, latest android version is KitKat/ 4.4 some KitKat roms are Cm11, CM11.0/SGT7, SlimKat PAC-man
They are all similar, features will very a little. I can't say which one will work best for you, I'm currently using SlimKat. but Cm11 is a good rom to start with.
3. Download Rom and Gapps (Google Apps). Don't download 'OtterX' roms unless you follow the Project OtterX instructions.
cm11: cm-11-20140609-SNAPSHOT-M7-otter.zip
KitKat Gapps: 20140105
4. Verify MD5 checksum for rom and gapps MD5 is posted on Rom/Gapps download pages.
see how to use checksum https://sites.google.com/site/sdshad...hash-checksums
5. Install rom and gapps in twrp recovery see how to install a rom on Kindle Fire it's an older rom but steps are the same.
Thank you for your trouble, I'm going to read up and watch the video before having a go at it. There will be a delay because we are going away on a 8 week cruise in 3 weeks time and my wife has warned me that if I brick the Kindle, she will kill me. I'll do it when we get back home and if it gets bricked I'll buy an Android tablet.
XDA really rocks.

Yes, best to not get your self in trouble before vacation.
But once twrp installed the kindle is pretty safe, and twrp should already be installed.
Just post back in this thread, when you have more questions.
