Thanks for the heads up on that, I've held off on doing it until I have more time to research it. I like to feel somewhat comfortable going into it and not totally freaked out. Thanks again, you guys are great around here.

Sorted.
I rooted using The Bin4ry Method and using KFFA to bring all the other systems back on line.

is anyone having problems with ADB and fastboot on 7.4.8?

Because I tried rooting using KFFA that didn't work I kept getting errors so I tried using fastboot to flash the recovery using this code

Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
I get "device not found" or when it dose work i get "failed to flash" (something like that) but i have the adb drivers installed would there be different ones for 7.4.8? When I type
Code:
fastboot device
it finds the device it just dosn't work when I want to flash

and only half the adb commands work

You have to have it with a special parameter telling it what the kindles vendor id is so it should look like this...:
Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery recovery.IMG
Try that.

"... I used KFFirstAide to re-root the Kindle and all is working so far."


I tried using bin4ry's root, which is how I originally rooted my kindle, but it did not work.
I am pleased to say that KFFirstAide was able to restore root.

Thank you xda for pointing me in the right direction!
