Thumbs up Awesome! I Had 1 small glitch.....

Thanks!! This is awesome. I've been trying to get my Kindle backed up since I got it. I had it rooted the next day and have been toying with it being extra careful not to go too far. Now the fun begins.

One thing....I had to rename kfhd7-twrp-2.3.3.0-recovery.img to get it to flash. I just renamed it to recovery.img

In case anyone else runs into this error

Code:
Select Code
C:\>fastboot -i 0x1949 flash boot kfhd7-freedom-boot.img
target reported max download size of 1006632960 bytes
sending 'boot' (8145 KB)...
OKAY [  2.794s]
writing 'boot'...
OKAY [  0.681s]
finished. total time: 3.475s

C:\>fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery kdh7-twrp-2.3.3.0-recovery.img
target reported max download size of 1006632960 bytes
error: cannot load 'kdh7-twrp-2.3.3.0-recovery.img': Unknown error

I'm so happy to hear that you finally decided to work on kfhd 7 too, doesn't matter how long it takes, it's good to know we'll get it after all.
Thanks

Default kindle

i managed to flash the recovery fine in fastboot but now i am stuck in a bootloop and unable to run the stock os is this normal or have i done somthing wrong


Rob

EDIT: okie so i tried from a clean fresh system using the restore images, i have managed to install the recovery bootloader no problem and i can access it, but if i leave the kindle and want to boot stock it goes orange and the texts flashes like normal and just when you think its going to boot it reboots and does the same thing over and over and over only way to get it to boot is wacking in the fastboot usb and then flashing the stock boot.img i also tried flashing revs beta rom and in twrp it always says error status 7 dunno if that is becasue its not the finished thing or not i am bit stuck now
