I have followed this but when it says boot status, mine keeps saying unknown.

I will give feed back on any suggestions.
thanks

So what have you done? It doesn't list options to switch into recovery mode when you reboot?
What commands from the thread you have have you tried?

From your kindle though, can you switch to recovery mode? I had that happen a few times. I don't remember the fix, except to completely uninstall all kindle fire drivers and reinstall them. When you boot your kindle, does your computer show it as an unrecognized device?

No, my computer doesn't recognize the kindle. and the kindle just flashes on the "Kindle Fire" boot screen logo.

OK, I would definitely go with a reinstall of the drivers then.

Go to the start menu, right click on Computer, select Manage, and it should take you to the device manager. With your kindle plugged in, right click on whatever device it says your kindle is, and select uninstall drivers.

It doesn't show my kindle, I tested to see if it was the cable, but it shows my lg g2 when I plug that in but not the kindle.

So have the device manager open before you plug in the kindle. Then plug the kindle in. Something should change, and your kindle should show up as a kindle, an android adb device, an unrecognized device, or something else.
