Usage: download files you want to flash (boot image, recovery image, ROM .zip files). After downloading files, select them and check appropriate options. In attached image there is an example for flashing Hashcode's bootloader + TWRP + stock ROM v8.1.4 with installed stack override on a KFHD8.9. After all files are selected and options checked as shown on the image, first tap Flash,install script button and then Reboot into recovery button. All required files can be found in Hashcode's threads.

Tomsgt made a video which shows how to use the fire flash. Thanks.

Note: more than one .zip file can be selected. To remove a file from the list, select the same file again.

Update v1.1
-added support for system version 7.3.0 / 8.3.0:
: if current bootloader is not 7.2.3 / 8.1.4 a red warning is displayed and check box for flashing 7.2.3 / 8.1.4 bootloader is enabled.
: unless you are sure your current bootloader is not 7.3.0 / 8.3.0 bootloader 7.2.3 / 8.1.4 should probably be flashed - check the checkbox.
-works on CM10.1
-every flashed partition is read back and verified
-shows progress when flashing

Update v1.01
-added some feedback after pressing Flash,install script button
-(hopefully) resolved problems with open recovery script

Could you make a version of this for the Kindle Fire 2nd gen/KFOT/otter2?

Does anyone know if this can be used to flash CM13 ROM (jem)?

Good evening: The Fireflash utllity can be used for all of the Jem tablet (2012 model) updates.

I have only used this utility for CM11 but, all of the CM formats are the same for this tablet.

2. Even though I selected to wipe the cache/data/system and install the new IS zip file, it did not work. I rebooted to TWRP ok, but had to wipe and flash manually...

But, I'm definitely not complaining about anything cuz it got my second boot loader installed without me having to buy a fast-food cable first!

Yes, mine flashed ok I assume, but sticks on the blue kindle screen. I am rooted at 8.14. Never did get into TWRP. flashed 2.78, and freedom boot 8.46, not sure what to try.

I know this is old, but I aquired a 2012 model kindle for cheap. I got it rooted and all but fireflash just says "stopped working" after launching. I granted it root also.
