Thanks very much for this guide. I succesfully flashed my Kindle Fire HDX 7" 3rd gen with AospExtended-v4.6-thor-20180610-0939-UNOFFICIAL.zip. Such a relief to find a guide that is updated rather than having to trawl through loads of comments to get the full picture.
It task 5, I didnt know what you meant by: "Rather than rewrite this, I’m just going to use the memo
previously done for you".
And after flashing recovery, I was unable to boot into the system (could only get into Fastboot and Recovery). Not sure if this is normal or I missunderstood your guide.
And Task 5 steps: press and hold power button like you were trying to turn off the HDX, choose Restart, choose Recovery, choose OK
This didnt work either, but Pwr + Vol+ got me into Recovery.
Anyway, after I flashed AospExtended it all worked fine.
Hey, @gwardsc65 its me again! I've followed all the steps but have came across a hurdle. I'm not able to use the command 'fastboot boot thor_twrp-3.2.3-1.img'. Everything else before just worked but not this. Furthermore, neither fastboot or adb can't see my HDX and is stuck on the fastboot screen. I'm using the original cable provided in the box, and am making the sure the driver I'm using is 'Android Composite' following your steps. My bootloader has been unlocked, its just that I can't boot (flash) into TWRP. I do await your reply, thanks.
Test to make sure the bootloader is in fact unlocked:
fastboot oem idme ?
If you get this - bootloader is unlocked
"fastboot oem idme ?"
(bootloader) board_id: 0c0400
(bootloader) serial: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
(bootloader) mac_addr: XXXXXXXXXXXX
(bootloader) bt_mac_addr: XXXXXXXXXXXX
(bootloader) productid: 0
(bootloader) productid2: 0
(bootloader) bootmode: 1
(bootloader) postmode: 0
(bootloader) bootcount: 1070
(bootloader) panelcal: ¦ ·
(bootloader) time_offset: 0
(bootloader) idme done
OKAY [ 0.329s]
Finished. Total time: 0.329s
and NOT this:
C:\adb>fastboot oem idme ?
FAILED (remote: 'oem idme not allowed for locked hw')
Finished. Total time: 0.040s
If not unlocked, either run unlock.bat or try fastboot flash unlock unlock.code.
If unlocked and you know you installed twrp correctly, just shut off the HDX. Restart the HDX holding power and volume + buttons together until logo appears and then release the power button. That should get you into twrp recovery. It may take you several attempts, if you haven't done it that way before.
I must be beyond noob
these are the files you need to have in the adb folder:
Where does this folder go? Or do they need to be copied to an existing adb folder?
I guess these go in the Fire root?
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
3467 KB/s (506072 bytes in 0.142s)
15 KB/s (256 bytes in 0.015s)
Press any key to continue . . .
What is going on here? I run this and I get "adb is not recognized as an internal or external command" 6 times "press any key to continue" I am guessing I need to be running this in the Fire???
Your help is much appreciated.
