How to use it.
1. install Towelroot and Supersu using KFHDX Toolkit v 0.94
2. If Disable OTA update , Airplane mode ON and Enable OTA update
3. If Install SafeStrap, uninstall safestrap on App.
4. Put "update-kindle-1X.3.1.0_user_310079820.bin" in SAME folder,
5. execute install.bat
7. put update-kindle-1X.3.1.0_user_310079820.bin" in internal storage.
8. Downgrade, wait a minute on the update menu, because display update button to take time.
9. disable OTA update.
Everything went well, but step 8. I am not seeing the update button. I am charged around 40% and been sitting staring at the screen for over 20 minutes.
I believe when I used the HDX toolkit back when i rooted this a while ago as well as disable OTA. I DID re-enable OTA as explained in step 2. Also put update-kindle-22.214.171.124_user_310079820.bin in the same file as the install.bat than transferred it to /sdcard on the kindle.
Is doing a factory reset good to do at this point?
LOL i am always nervous about Factory Resetting brick-a-phobic
Factory reset did the trick.
From here, I went ahead and did another update to 126.96.36.199 just the stock firmware. I am looking and trying to find the best way to unlock the bootloader (seeing if there is anything newer than THIS METHOD for unlocking the bootloader?
OR should I flash THIS <--- if I flash this is that flashing an unlocked bootloader? I was having a hard time figuring that out.
