Hi,

I tried to install cm-10.1.2-otter2 following this instruction: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2271909

The current status is that I am able to boot into TWRP 2.6.0.0 without any problem. That means that the Kindle logo turns blue and I can enter TWRP.

My problem is now that I can not go anywhere else now.

When I try to install CM I'll get the following error message:
Quote:

assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "blaze_tablet" || getprop("ro.bui
getprop("ro.product,device") == "otter2" || getprop("ro.build.product") =
E: Error executing updater binary in zip '/sdcard/cm-10.1.2-otter2.zip'

My problem is that I can't do anything else now as I can only enter TWRP and do more or less nothing there.
I can't access the storage anymore when connecting it to the computer as it will not be identified anymore.

So what options do I have now?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Kind Regards,
Chewie

Have you tried putting twrp into sideload mode? Its under the advanced section. Unless you misposted this in the 7 inch section, that ROM was designed for kf2, that's might be why you are having problems. After you get sideload mode enabled if your PC detects it and u manage to install the adb drivers, u put the correct zip you want to flash in the same directory as adb and I think the syntax goes as follows:
adb sideload filename.zip
See if that helps.

Thanks for the quick reply.
I tried that one, too. Unfortunately Windows will is not accepting the device anymore as Kindle (which worked well before) and ADB is showing offline / no device on the PC.
The connected Kindle says "Starting ADB sideload feature..."

And you are correct - it seems to be a wrong ROM but happily it could not been installed.
So the main problem is now to get the new suitable ROM from the computer to the Kindle device.

Reinstalling drivers is not helping, too. So I am kind of clueless how to get files to the Kindle.

Have a nice evening .

Update 21:45h:
It seems to work now on another computer. Thanks again for your answer which pointed me into the right direction and forced me to try the correct way on different devices. The CyanogenMod logo is now on the display of the Kindle. I'll let you know how it end

Update 09:00h:
After some more tries it is finally working as intended. I am not sure which was the original mistake. Maybe driver issues on the PC. Thanks again!

I sideloaded CM 10.1 via TWRP 2.6.3.1 and comes up fine (can't tether, but that's another issue). I rebooted into recovery, and when I attempt sideload, I get error: closed. Every time. Have tried everything. Anything I'm missing? Thanks in advance.

Add another / at the end of /sdcard so it looks like this:
Code:
adb push filename /sdcard/
