KindleWater is now a part of BreakDroid all in one tool. I am also slowly backing off of Kindle development because of the Nexus 7
The new version is bundled as a part of BreakDroid (A multi device rooting app). Just download breakdroid from the download link below and you're good to go!
Download the newest version of BreakDroid from BreakDroid's website northmendo.com/breakdroid
ST3P_2 (Me) writing the UI and some of the scripts, and slimming the SDK to the essentials
northmendo (co author) for writing the scripts and hosting the website
pokey9000 for fastboot
Team Win for TWRP recovery
Try opening up terminal on your Mac and typing "adb devices" without the quotes. It should list a number like 29491656. If it doesn't the app isn't going to work.
Try opening terminal and typing "adb kill-server". Then try the adb devices trick above, it should now list a number.
Try restarting your Mac and kindle
Try rerunning KindleWater.

To boot into recovery: Shut the kindle off, turn it on, when it shows the triangle with a fire hold the power button until the light behind the power button turns orange then release it. Wait a second and voila! There's recovery!

We aren't responsible if this bricks your kindle. There is a 1% chance it could although it's very unlikely. I am still willing to help if you have questions.
