Default [GUIDE]Those having problems with flashing TWRP 2.6.3.1

Ok, first of all. I've been in your steps whoever is having the data mounting error and is preventing them from installing CM11. SO here's what you gotta do.

1. Factory reset your WHOLE device before flashing this.

2. Convert your bin file into a zip and name it update.zip (go into properties and make sure your well known file extensions aren't hidden)

3a. Go into old TWRP (don't flash 2.6.3.1 just yet)
3b. Wipe Data, Cache, and Dalvik Cache. DO NOT wipe system.

4. Flash the update.zip. You shouldn't have any problems with flashing it and it should boot up when you restart it. (if you have troubles flashing it, go into ubuntu and change the update-script in the first few lines (codename) from "blaze" to "otter". Save it. Now put it into your SD card and flash it and NOW it should work.)

5. Go into Kindle Fire Utility (found here), run "run" and install FFF 1.4a (make sure you have drivers installed before doing this, duh )

6. Press Shift and Right click the "tools" folder in the KFU folder and click on "Open command window here"

7. Download TWRP 2.6.3.1 found here (select otter 2.6.3.1)

8. Restart your kindle fire and type in "fastboot flash recovery twrp.img" (rename it twrp.img or it won't detect it but move it inside the "tools" folde" so it'll find it). When your kindle starts up, it will detect it and flash the image.

9. Congratulations, you have successfully installed TWRP 2.6.3.1 without data mounting problems anymore. (this is what I followed to fix my problem.)

10. Flash CM11 and Enjoy


Also, if you want to dualboot, just use this and follow the guide..

Follow this guide for using dualboot.
Also, my apologies. I'm not good at explaining how to dualboot so that's the reason I didn't include how to dualboot in this guide. Sorry

I don't recommend flashify because it caused problems with mounting partitions for me.

I can confirm that using flashify ends up causing problems with mounting data partition.

What's the best way to get out of having no way to mount data? Should i use FFF to return to an earlier version of twrp?

I tried to do this, install hashcode's CM 11.0, and set up dual-booting with a modded stock ROM. I did finally get it working, just from the info here and here, and wiping everything a few times.

I installed TWRP 2.6.3.1 through fastboot just fine.

I did run into the problem with mounting /data, but not until after I had CM 11.0 installed and running. I had to go through the dual-boot set up in KFU a couple of times before I could get the alternate ROM to boot properly. I don't quite remember what steps I actually took that finally got everything working correctly.

( I tried to reply to hachcode's thread, but I realize I haven't made enough posts to be able to post in the dev forum. I've just been lurking here for a year or so).
