INITIAL SETUP INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1. Install ADB Drivers for Kindle HD and enable ADB on tablet Settings->Security->Enable ADB->On
C:\> adb devices List of devices attached 0123456789ABCDEF device
STEP 2. Backup your stock partitions to your own HD for later if you need disaster recovery:
adb pull /dev/block/mmcblk0boot0 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
STEP 3. Getting root
Just follow this threat http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2075959 -> everything working fine
STEP 4. Downgrade your bootloader
Download the older 10.2.4 bootloader file and flash to your device via fastboot:
(You SHOULD check this before using fastboot -- downloads CAN be corrupted)
Open cmd and promt:
adb shell su -c "reboot bootloader"
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash bootloader otter2-u-boot-prod-10.2.4.bin fastboot -i 0x1949 reboot
First, download CM and GAPPS and copy it to SDCARD:
CM-10.1 for the Kindle Fire 2 (choose the latest version from):
Google Apps from: http://goo.im/gapps (choose the top rom CM10.1 version)
1. Copy com.powerpoint45.FMKilo-2.apk to the tablet (you can get this apk from here http://d-h.st/n7L)** If everything was done correctly you will at this point see the bootmenu with a BLUE logo during the reboot. **
2. Enable on Kindle: Device -> Allow Installation of Applications
3. Use file browser (i recomended to use ES Explorer) to install apk.
4. Run Tweezermod Installer and answer on all question about Super User -> "Allow"
In this time your kindle can not boot, u'll see BLUE logo, then ORANGE and then device restarted again. Don't worry - it's ok
STEP 6. Install CyanogenMod
TO ENTER RECOVERY:
During the blue logo screen press the power button to cycle through options and select "Recovery" to enter TWRP.
Once in TWRP you can Install" the CM-10.1 by selecting "Install" and then browsing the device and selecting it, then "Add Zip" and select the Gapps .zip as well.
Use the slider to start the install.
Dont forget to do FULL WIPE - cache, dalvik cache, factory reset, system.
Tested on my Kindle Fire 2 v10.4.3 & v10.4.6
