Default [Q] KF issues and what I have tried so far...

Hello.

I have a KF 1st generation. I had rooted it some time back and then un-rooted it (thought I did?) and haven't had an issue. This week it started loading up and freezing on the Kindle Fire orange and white logo. I am able to boot it to Recovery which gives me Cannibal Open Touch screen and options. I did try a few of the options but still the same end result. After coming here and reading around I found a thread and I followed the directions since the original poster and I seemed to have the same issue. There are the steps I followed:

Step 1) Download MoDaCo Rom/Any other ROM BUT NOT ANY KITKAT ROM(COTR can NOT flash KitKat)
Step 2) Transfer your ROM while in recovery
Step 3) Do a preflash wipe
Step 4) Do a factory reset
Step 5) Go to 'Install -> Install from SD Card -> Folder where you put your ROM
Step 6) Click Install without Backup
Step 7) Boot Android

I downloaded [ROM] 14 Jun Gr9 (6.3.1) - MoDaCo Custom ROM for the Kindle Fire and made it to Step 5 using the 'Zip Flashing' option but I can't seem to flash or sideload or any of those options. While the Kindle is plugged into the computer I hear the noise and when I find my Kindle it has a Yellow Triangle with a !. I looked at the Kindle and it tells me I have no drivers and I am not able to drag and drop any files. Also, not sure if it matters but I am no longer using the computer used to root the Kindle.

the rebooting is the new 6.3.3 update trying to install, but because you have custom bootloader/recovery install fails.
may need to install twrp recovery. but my prerooted 6.3.3 zip sbould install fine.

@sd_shadow I appreciate the reply and the twrp file but can you lead me to the direction to getting them to the KF? I can plug the KF into the computer and it no longer gives me the triangle ! sign. I am unsure of the next step and don't wanna mess anything up with unnecessary stuff. Thank You again

I have been trying to figure this out and searching but I can't seem to figure this out. I am uploading the screen I have on my KF and I don't know how to mount the file. I can't find a thread that will kind of walk me though it so if you know where I should go that would be great. I am uselessly pretty good with figuring things out so maybe I'm making this harder than it looks?

Can't remember if Cannibal Open Touch has mount options

Download a twrp.img from http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/blaze,
latest (24 June 2014) is openrecovery-twrp-2.7.1.0-otter.img

Download ADB/Fastboot.exe Files from adb-fastboot.zip

Victory!
First off TY for the time you took to get me to the finish line.
I will admit trying to mount was a nightmare. I couldn't figure out how to do it so after hours of playing around and trying to find anything to try I finally succeed by installing the Kindle Fire Unbrick Utility (again) and running KindleUnbrick.bat file and installing the TWRP that way. Once that worked (and believe me I didn't think it would work since I tried this a few times) and I yelled WOOT, I followed the rest of your directions from "In TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) select Mount check sd card and tap mount USB Storage" and installed your prerooted 6.3.3 zip and finished off your directions and have myself my dear reading buddy back. I APPRECIATE deeply the time you took to get me back.


I want to add for anyone who is looking though threads looking for help with the same issue. If you are trying to get the TWRP file on your Kindle download the Kindle Fire Unbrick Utility and then running the RUN file and follow the directions.

great, Glad I could help.
I have tried to use the Kindle Fire Unbrick Utility a few times, with little success.
I would only suggest it, if nothing else is working, but does work in some situations.
