I can access the TWRP menu by holding the Vol. Up button but my Kindle isn't appearing on my computer so I can't copy the CM10.1 custom ROM to install it.
I believe that all I need to do is somehow copy the CM10.1 custom ROM file to my Kindle but I can't figure out a way to do it. I'm running Win 7 on one machine and Vista on another and the drivers successfully installed on both so I'm not sure what the problem is. Any help is appreciated.
At the main screen of TWRP, tap Mounts, next, make sure there is ONLY an X next to sdcard. Tap Mount. Your kindle will now appear as visible on your computer. Transfer the ROM and the correct version of gapps to the root of your internal storage. Once it is done transferring, unmount sdcard. Go back to the main screen of TWRP. Tap wipe. Do a factory reset (wipe data) and wipe dalvik cache and cache. Back at the main screen tap install, find the ROM and select it. Wait while it flashes the ROM then go back into install and flash gapps.
Wipe dalvik again and then reboot. You should be all set with a nice working kindle
