Tried 2 different 8.9's, with 3 different USB cables on Windows 7 and Linux with each.
EDIT: Nevermind, finally got it working
Awesome, feel free to share any tips.

Turns out I could only get it working on Linux using root shell, everything else failed.

Hold off on CM10.1, I'm rebuilding.

do you mean we can back up stock OS and flash it back later, without going through fastboot and keep TWRP with stock OS?

After installing CM10.1+ Gapps, it booted to a black screen, so I did a hard reset. Went back into TWRP, wiped system, and flashed just CM10.1. After that, it got stuck on the orange Kindle Fire logo (doesn't get to the blue one) and even reflashing the bootloader/recovery doesn't fix it.
EDIT: Tried restoring my system backup from the stock ROM, that didn't work either. Restoring the stock boot image makes it so I can boot into the stock ROM though.


EDIT 2: Must have done something wrong. It's working fine again, but CM10.1 still doesn't work.

When re-setting up the Kindle for the 2nd-bootloader, PLEASE re-review the steps in the OP, I added a missing step later after the original posting.

(It's the disabling of the "install-recovery.sh" file)

Yeah, that's how I got it working. Also, there's a typo in the OP, you put "fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery kdh8-twrp-2.3.3.0-recovery.img" instead of "fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery kfhd8-twrp-2.3.3.0-recovery.img"

Guh. I actually fixed (or thought I did) that typo last night. Ah well, I re-editted it just now and it looks like it took.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Is TWRP extremely choppy for everyone else?

it is a little slow to respond. i built it with a custom kernel a while back.

i may try either an updated kernel or using stock kernel to see if it helps.

That would be nice. It's not a big issue, but it's a bit annoying.
