And that's the only reason I thought I'd ask, not to buck convention. Even if the KF's convention isn't the norm for Android.
If I did a new version (edit: new version did), you'd just have to get into fastboot (idme bootmode for stock, boot time fastboot for FIREFIREFIRE 0.9), do "fastboot -i 0x1949 flash bootloader u-boot.bin" then "fastboot -i 0x1949 reboot". From then on, you go about your business but eliminate the "-i 0x1949" from any fastboot commands.
From what I understand, some of the previous problems with flashing recovery was due to the custom VID Amazon uses. This would fix that, at the cost of having to distinguish between stock and FIREFIREFIRE when using fastboot. I'd be using the Google VID of 0x18d1 since even the oldest fastboots will recognize it.
