Now that thats cleared up, I have been seeing too many recovery bootloop bricks lately because I think the main tutorials people use haven't been updated(to mention you need to put a rom on the kindle beforehand now), so I thought why not write a tutorial that explains how to fix this problem since there are so many posts, that way we can just put a link to the tutorial in the peoples threads. So here we go!
Things you need to do this:
- a micro-usb cable
- minimal command prompt experience
- Boot your kindle into twrp (it should do this on its own at this point)
- Make sure you have the adb drivers installed(they will need to be installed again if you flashed an older version of twrp), if not, update your drivers in the device manager with the ones in my signature.(See below if you don't know how to update your drivers)
- Download the attached file and extract it somewhere
- Put the rom and gapps in the folder you extracted the files to
- Open a command prompt with admin privileges(start>all programs>accessories right click command prompt, hit run as admin)
- CD into the directory where the extracted files are
- Type this into the command prompt: adb push rom-or-gapps-name-goes-here.zip /sdcard/
- As I said in the filename put either the rom or the gapps, but send both in two commands
- At this point once the transfer is done unplug your kindle
- If you are going from amazon to a cm based rom, at this point you should wipe system, cache, dalvik cache, and do a factory reset. If not just goto step 11.
- Hit install, browse to the /sdcard folder and choose the rom and gapps files and flash them
- Reboot and profit!
For people with driver issues that don't know how to install my driver:
- Open the device manager
- Find the device with a triangle next to it
- Right click it and hit update driver
- Choose the option that lets you search a folder for drivers by browsing
- Choose the folder you extracted my drivers to
- Let it search and install the drivers
Note: If adb isn't picking up the kindle in recovery, try uninstalling the current kindle devices it detects first and then updating the drivers
