ROM link is correct. Look through posts in that thread and the one for Safestrap v4. Then (if desired) publish an brief outline of your plan. A contributor will comment if something appears amiss.
I decided not to go for the nexus rom for the time being, but instead got into a world of trouble just flashing the opengapps package with safestrap 4. Somehow, after a successful installation, all was working, but I noticed that my home and back etc softkeys were GONE. I installed Button Savior, but the home button would not take me anywhere. It became impossible to navigate, so I did a factory reset. That made things worse, because I could not complete the initial setup and the soft keys were still missing and there is no way to get back to home and no way to get to any apps. AND, (at this point I am laughing at my own stupidity) of course everything that i had had on the internal sd card was gone, so I could not install any rom at all unless I was able to put one on via usb cable. My laptop recognized the Fire, but the internal memory was not writable!! I could not move anything onto it. Totally screwed. I tried adb and device was recognized but when I tried to push file over I got some kind of error, like "not allowed" or something. I would like to return the fire to the marketplace seller (used device) because I already had reported to them that the wifi was very quirky, and they told me to try a factory reset but not to worry because I had 30 days to return it, but I would like to give them a device that would at least BOOT with working soft keys and of course I would like to get rid of safestrap before returning. So, to recap this sad sorry story, I am left with a kindle fire hdx 7 that boots to safestrap recovery or proceeds to normal boot , to the setup screens to select language and connect wifi etc., I also have access to status bar with settings etc but cannot move backwards or forward and eventually the unit just turns off. I have no idea what to do now. BTW, I have rooted and custom rommed every android phone and tablet and e-reader that I have ever owned, all the way back to my Nexus One phone, and never once bricked. Yet here I am, having destroyed both my old original hdx from 2013 and my new used 3rd generation hdx, within the span of one week. Any ideas on how to get this unit in shape to return it? Many thanks for even just reading this.......
