used the utility to install root SU and market. Thank your very much for this. Only problem is I can't install TWRP. I dowloaded the link on the first page of this thread and put it in the Recovery folder as stated. Just want to know if I have to delete the "recovery" image that was already in the folder and replace with the new one or can I leave both? Thanks again.

I don't think there is any need for KFU to flash intersectRaven's kernel. His latest kernels are provided as update zips and can easily (and safely) be flashed in TWRP or CWM recovery.

you will have to rename the new file to the same name as the old one and overwrite

Hi, I rooted my Kindle Fire using KFU then I installed FireFireFire. After this, I attempted to install TWRP Recovery using KFU and that's where I ran into a problem. I got up to a point where it said "Selecting Normal Bootmode" followed by "please wait..." The prompt above this told me that I should attempt to install the drivers using install_drivers.bat. However, when I attempted to do so, I got an error of:
Driver name Status
Google, Inc. (WinUSB).. Install failed (Unsigned)

I've looked around for hours, using many different techniques to fix this and finally decided it was time to post here. If I plug in my Kindle Fire to my computer, I hear three beeps and the device is not recognized.

My OS is Windows XP.

Now the kindle is on its boot logo, Android adb interface is still showing up in Device manager.

But the kindle is hanging on its boot screen, what should I do

Edit: all fixed, used 0.9.1

This!!!!!

Someone should remove 0.9.3. I thought I bricked my Fire. Had to reboot my computer. Then use 0.9.1 and all is well.

Is there a guide on this thread on what steps have to be followed to get from a brand new stock KF, to a CM7 rommed KF - without risks of brick or doing something wrong, or in the wrong order?

Known Tricks

•If you end up stuck at the yellow triangle, in KF Utility select Boot Normal, wait for it to say <waiting for device> and then press and hold the power button 20 seconds until the fire turns off, then when its off turn it back on. This sometimes happens, I have yet to find a clean solution
•If you end up stuck with a yellow triangle, do not EVER unplug it. Leave it plugged in. Check the windows drivers to make sure it isnt showing as "kindle" again. Fastboot is different and can cause this.
