Windows 8 will now reboot and you can go ahead and install the Kindle ADB drivers.[COLOR="Silver"]
This worked. I then went on to successfully install the drivers that came with the latest version of kindle fire utility and finished setting up the rom. However, now my device presents this error:
"Encryption Unsuccessful - Encryption was interrupted and can't complete. As a result, the data on your tablet is no longer accessible. To resume using your tablet, you need to perform a factory reset. When you set up your tablet after the reset, you'll have an opportunity to restore any data that was backed up to your Google account"
I've tried booting back into recovery and doing a factory reset, but it still provides the same message.
Edit: Flashed f2fs version and this didn't happen. Thank you for the fast and concise help.
