About year ago I rooted my Kindle Fire (1st gen), installed TWRP 2.0 and flashed CM7. I haven't really touched my kindle fire since and now I would like to clean install this tablet with CM10.1 and give it to my mom. The question is how do I update my TWRP 2.0 to 2.5? I think I can figure out how to flash CM10.1 afterwards. Or can I just flash CM10.1 without updating TWRP?

Quick note-
Currently running TWRP 2.0, fresh CM7, no google apps installed.

Use smirkit in the dev section and download from the last post.

Either get the zip file and flash it in twrp (A), or get the img file from twrp's site and flash it in terminal (B).

A) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/...V2ayf2_Vw&dl=1


B) Updating to twrp 2.5 (w/o PC, & w/o flashable zip)

1. Download it here: http://techerrata.com/file/twrp2/bla....0.0-blaze.img

2. Rename it to recovery.img & move it to sdcard/

3. In terminal, Type this:

dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5

4. Enjoy! That's it!
