Hi,
did you achieve anything in this matter?
It seems I have a similar problem. After downloading build.prop, editing on my pc, reuploading and rebooting I get the exact same bahaviour (can boot to kindle recovery, cannot boot normally, cannot see device in adb any more [not even in usbdeview for that matter ] )

I am sure I have seen a thread here with all the bin files available before.... searched and searched and I cant find them again....

I take it I need 13.3.1.0 then to upgrade to 13.3.2.3....

I have researched putting safestrap on but this seems old hat now.....

There doesnt seem to be any instructions from going from safestrap to full TWRP.... :s

Presumably I root, do the disable amazon updates, flash the two bim files by putting into root then using the system upgrader.... Can I then install TWRP then flash a ROM? If so which version and is it that easy?

Presumably TWRp hast to be installed by ADB transfer or fast boot? There seems to be a gulf in information between the two types of flashing.... could just be me being thick though....

Strongly suggest you do some more reading before attempting to flash any of these. You are correct, there are no step-by-step how-to guides. One f-up and your device is toast. That said there are a ton of helpful posts to help you through. Folks will respond to targeted questions provided you have done your homework first.

Your options are largely determined by your current firmware version. Sometimes you can rollback, often not. Don't assume Safestrap is old hat. It is often the only solution and works remarkably well. Don't make the mistake if thinking you can revive a brick through twrp/fastboot/adb magic. Kindles don't work that way.

Good luck.

Thanks for the quick and frank response.... just a pity that the safestrap ROMs are a bit dated....
