I did itt without one. I downloader a rebooter which had an option for bootloader. Once I was in fastboot, I tested that it worked fine and once I was done, I just needed to enter in it for step #4. It was fairly easy, though is not recommended.

persano: the 2nd bootloader is an absolute requirement for getting custom recovery on the device. There isnt an option of "recovery only" -- All of the files MUST be installed.

Edit: hey hashcode, i just noticed twrp recovery was updated to 2.4, can i just flash it thru fastboot? Or does it need to be modified for the HD7?

The custom recovery and kernels we use on the new Kindle Fires require special modifications or they will break on Amazons signature check.

I can build a new recovery with the 2.4 update over the next few days. It will probably come in 2 forms:
- an updated image file for use during the 2nd bootloader installation
- a flash .zip update for those who are already running custom recovery.

Soo... How's everything going for us KFHD 7" users? Are we getting closer to a Rom or still waiting for a couple of months?

Don't ask for progress updates, what's being done or ETA's unless you want to royally annoy a dev.
