Sorry about having to deal with a compete noob here...

---I'll list my issues to isolate confusion.---

-I cannot boot ADB, I click on it, a cmd window pops up and then immediately closes each time I proceed to open it. for a start, if someone could perhaps tell me what I am doing wrong, because I know I must not be doing what all of you pros are doing.

-Although I had TWRP installed on both my pc and kindle. Whenever I boot up my kindle, I do not get the blue and gray "Kindle Fire" logo before the Orange and White logo. So that for me was very frustrating.

-The Kindle Fire Utility is not detecting my device at all. Which is worrying me to death, the Kindle Fire Unbrick utlity is not working either which is killing me inside.

-For a detailed description of what my kindle fire does when I press the power button goes as so: I press the power button, the orange and white Kindle Fire logo pops up for a few seconds like normal, then it proceeds to boot or "Attenpt" to boot the Jellybean OS, after waiting 5 minutes, the OS lock screen pops up with "" or "" pops up, for a second, then it proceeds to fully rebooting the OS for another 5 minutes. It does it indefinitely.

So does this mean my kindle is officially done for? Bricked? Or is there still hope for me. This is really depressing, I spent most of my money on this, money is tight for me right now ant I use my kindle for school and research. It is a vital tool to me. I need all the help I can get.

Thanks for all of the help so far. You guys really know what you are doing, thanks!
Hey Phil. Doesn't look like you've posted anything else, so you probably won't see this. But oh well... Sorry your problem got left in the dust. I didn't mean for that to happen. You need to shift + right click in the folder with adb.exe and click "open command window here" and then you can do your things. As far as everything else: does your computer do anything when you plug your kindle into it?
I am just a guy that is trying to learn a little coding and all. Don't go crying to your mommy that something I said was wrong.

I accidentally did this once (at least I think it's the same) and what I did was I went into ADB and side loaded a custom ROM I used CM
