The backup was done right out of the box after root, so it would be as close to factory as possible. It should be 8.1.2, but 8.1.3 is rootable also. I lost root after the update and was still able to root.

Bricked over a dpi change!
[QUOTE=onemeila;34571114]THIS IS NOT A CUSTOM RECOVERY!!!
KINDLE FIRE HD 8.9 ONLY!!! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!


About an hour ago I ran a tool to change dpi on my Kindle 8.9 and was greeted with the unpleasant notice that my 8.9 could not boot. System goes to the screen that asks if I want to do a factory restore. That of course fails. Downloading your recovery prog, will try it in the morning, anything need to do other than follow your bouncing ball?

Thanks

To come in next version:
Install of GoogleServicesFramework.apk after erase of cache and userdata, thought about adding this after writing this post.
If anyone wants see other options included let me know.

.

Started to use KFHD_SRT v 1.3 When I woke up this morning, had to look for GSFa before starting, then spotted your answer to me, still on my laptop! Sooo I went with KFHD_SRT v2.0 instead. Didn't even finish my first cup of coffee and you had me back up. Needless to say, I think I will stay away from the dpi tool that caused this to begin with. One question, (not sure if I ever used option 5). is it included in Option 3??

I think I owe you something, will take care of it before the weekend.

No it is not. I prefer not to install apps as system apps unless it is necessary. There is no sense in potentially causing more problems. Also the more you install as system, the more you will lose and have to redo if you get an update.

I bricked this device playing with permissions to get app store installed. This tool really saved me.

I used option 4 then 3 and all is well.

Installed Google resources manually as the tool lost the device. Every thing except Gmail that I have in the screenshot works.

Thanks a bunch

Thats good you got it to work but if you were just trying to root this was not the tool to use. This tool is used to unbrick your device. It will give you root access but at the moment it is for v8.1.3. So as soon as you have wifi connected it is going to upgrade again to 8.1.4 and you will lose root.

Confirmed- downgrading from 8.1.4 to 8.1.3 is possible with this tool without having to flash other partitions.
