I was able to get the ADB working on a Windows 8 computer, but then when KFU tried to reboot into fastboot mode, it said "waiting for device" for a long time. I think it has frozen. I've tried resetting it by holding the power button for 20 seconds, but I haven't been able to get past the splash screen.
FFF installs with Twrp now

if twrp installed boot logo should have changed
do you see a press power for boot options?

So this is what seems to work the best for me (even though it doesn't work). With the Windows 8 computer, the Kindle is recognized in the ADB devices. I can run KFU and it actually is able to communicate with the device, but then the Kindle stalls when trying to reboot in fastboot mode. I cannot do anything with it in Windows 8. So I connect it to the Windows 7 machine, where I cannot install TWRP, but I can reboot it into normal mode, so it is not bricked, and it is still usable.
As far as I can tell, it never even got to the point where it would have started installing TWRP.
try manually reboot to bootloader with
[fastboot] stock 6.2.1 fastboot mode without rooting or cables
if that works manually flash TWRP with Fastboot.exe
I think my issue was the computer not recognizing the device once it was in fastboot mode. I reinstalled the drivers (which I had done before), but this time they worked on the Windows 8 computer, so I was able to get TWRP and FFF on the device. I am working on getting CM11 on it currently. Thanks for all the help so far!
