Angry [Q] [SOLVED] Stupid noob question

Hello,

I decided to root the Mrs Kindle Fire 1st gen, all good so far! I was able to root it, add TWRP, FFF a ROM and gapps.

however, my question is: Can I copy files to it by connecting it to a PC? Before with the stock OS, it would show up on windows explorer and could copy/paste files to it. Now, even though it does load the driver and appears as "Android ADB interface", does not map a letter to it.

Not worry much, since I can use "ES file explorer" for network shares, but would be nice for big files.

Anyone?

I do all my file transfers in twrp. Mount the device and it shows as a USB drive. Note: release the USB drive before unmounting the device.

hmm, I tried all 3 options, the only one that works is the Camera (PTP) mode. UMS might work as well if it had a SD card slot perhaps.
Nevertheless, MTP options does not work.

For TWRP, I need to reboot on it, correct?

Thanks!

not exactly, twrp connects without rom, but likely its a drivers issue anyways

Yes, to use twrp you must reboot the device. Yes, Windows drivers are a mess for other than stock Kindle. Using twrp is easier than getting the drivers to load correctly in Windows 8.1.

Solved.

Rebooting on TWRP and mounting it did the trick. Not first choice but it works fine.

Thank you for the tips.
