Default No Recovery

Can't get my Kindle to load up into recovery..

did the fastboot commands fine... get the fade to blue kindle logo

I hold the + volume down but nothing, just skips back to orange logo and boot into stock os.

Thanks for any help,

Update: was able to get into recovery by using adb reboot recovery

You need to hold volume up, not down. And make sure you start holding it right when the first orange logo shows.

Perhaps a stupid question, but: If I go thru with this, will it boot to stock Kindle OS after performin step 1 to 5, or do I have to go to recovery and flash something like CM?
Also - The first step
Code:
adb pull /dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/boot
adb pull /dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/recovery
adb pull /dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/system # This will take a few minutes
didn't work for me under Windows.

However,
Code:
adb shell su -c 'dd if=/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/recovery of=/sdcard/recovery.img'
adb shell su -c 'dd if=/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/boot of=/sdcard/boot.img'
adb shell su -c 'dd if=/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/system of=/sdcard/system.img'
(found at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2100963&page=3)
and then pulling the .img files using adb worked.

If you successfully pulled boot.img, recovery.img and system.img from the stock ROM, you simply need to execute the following commands from a terminal -this is assuming the boot.img , recovery.img and system.img files are in your working directory and that your Kindle is on the bootloader screen and your "ADB Composite USB Device" driver is working correctly.

Code:
adb flash boot boot.img -i 0x1949
adb flash recovery recovery.img -i 0x1949
adb flash system system.img -i 0x1949
adb reboot -i 0x1949
Current Devices

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 - Stock

Shouldn't that rather be
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img -i 0x1949
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img -i 0x1949
fastboot flash system system.img -i 0x1949
fastboot reboot -i 0x1949
?
Anyway - Wouldn't that completely undo the installation of the custom recovery? I mean - I'm reflashing the stock recovery and boot back, right?
What I'd like to accomplish is to prepare my Kindle for the day Hashcode has a fully working CM build so I just can boot into recovery and flash cm10.1.zip as soon as it's complete. In short: To have 2nd boot + twrp recovery ready for the day CM is fully operational.

When you flash the files back to the kindle, you are flashing the downloaded boot loader files. Not the stock amazon files you backed up.

So basically, it's enough to flash my stock, backed up, system.img (as I have already flashed 2nd boot + twrp recovery in step 5) ?

I'm sorry, I failed to read your posts earlier in the thread. After step 5 you are finished, unless you are ready to flash a new rom or go back to full stock with no bypassed bootloader. The steps after step 5 are only if you want to return to the stock Amazon software.

Once you are done with step 5, you should have an HD with twrp installed and amazon software.
