Question [HELP] KFHD 8.9 Red Screen

Hi all,

First off, this is my first post and I need some help.

Last night I used this thread to successfully get root access on my Kindle Fire HD 8.9".

Then, wanting to install CyanogenMod 10.1 on the Kindle, I tried to install the second bootloader and TWRP Recovery. At this point, the Kindle began to reboot. When it turned on, the Kindle Fire logo appeared, shined a few times, then blank red covered the screen.

I can turn on/turn off the Kindle, but all I see is this red screen. Anything I can do?

I've looked at factory cables, hopefully there are some things I can try before I buy that...?

A factory cable won't work on the 8.9

Disconnect the USB cable
Turn the device completely off (hold power button for 10 seconds)
Enter: fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product
Reconnect the USB cable

As the device powers up, if your fastboot drivers are working properly, the device should boot into fastboot mode. Use it to restore your saved partition images.

Thumbs up Thanks for reply

Hi soupmagnet,

Where do I enter the command "fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product"?

In command prompt on the computer?

EDIT: Self-explanatory It worked perfectly - thanks!

Default HAVING SAME PROBLEM KFHD 8.9 2nd Gen RED BOOT.

I have the same problem. Can boot into fast mode with KFFA, but restoring stock settings seem to be Impossible. I have tried to restore with ADB, ADB (Fastboot), KFFA, and KF SRT. No matter what red boot screen will not go away and device can only fastboot. Any help?

Red screen is also considered a hard brick. Sometimes restore does not work.

You need to run this on the computer: fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product
Once it says waiting for device, plug the kindle in while it is off, if the bootloader isn't too damaged it should kick into fastboot. Hopefully you also installed the fastboot drivers previously or your best bet might be a Linux live distro like Ubuntu.

Please Read the instructions and use the debugger if you run into errors.
