---------- Post added at 09:50 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:41 AM ----------

If you flash the latest .img file using this method it will completely screw things up. The latest image installs FIREFIREFIRE u-boot as well as TWRP.

Please be kind enough to remove this thread as it could render Kindle Fires useless. You cannot flash the current twrp-blaze-2.0.0RC0.img via the following. It will make your devices stick at the Kindle Fire screen.

This wont work with the new image:

Code:
dd if=/sdcard/twrp-blaze-2.0.0RC0.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5
dd if=/sdcard/u-boot.bin of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p2
You NEED fastboot and you need to run the following with the new image from http://teamw.in/project/twrp2/79:

Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 boot twrp-blaze-2.0.0RC0.img



---------------------------------------------------------------------
BUT, if you still do no wanna use fastboot and wanna use dd to flash, you can download my attachments in this post and use the follow method.

It's the old version twrp2.0 that can be used dd to flash.




---------------------------------------------------------------------
Unpack rar file,
get u-boot.bin and twrp-blaze-2.0.0RC0.img

adb push u-boot.bin /sdcard/
adb push twrp-blaze-2.0.0RC0.img /sdcard/

adb shell
su
dd if=/sdcard/twrp-blaze-2.0.0RC0.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5
dd if=/sdcard/u-boot.bin of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p2

Ctrl+C (quit adb shell)

adb reboot

That's all.
They're holy perfect.

Yea once in recover open up adb shell window and do "idme bootmode 4000" then "reboot" don't press anything and you'll boot to your rom.

Ya figured it out shortly after typing the question. Thanks for the reply.

EDIT: If you choose Recovery in the reboot menu of CM7, it will reboot you to Recovery. Problem is you have to idme 4000 to get it to reboot to your OS after doing that.

They're holy perfect.

Coming from a rooted Stock 1.0 ROM, this worked perfectly with no problems. Launched TWRP and did an immediate backup of /boot /data and /system to retain that stock feel in case of a need to RESTORE.

Thanks for this quickie!

Good to know, mind if I post this in the CM7 thread? It would be good for everyone to know.

I followed the guide but when it booted up it is stuck at the firefirefire screen. I have not been able to boot into recovery or into android, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: Also adb is not detecting device.

Fix: Follow the instructions here will fix the issue. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=222

I have the same problem, I used the new build and the "fastboot -i 0x1949 boot twrp-blaze-2.0.0RC0.img" command. All went well, got the TEAMWIN screen and pushed the reboot button, rebooted to the triangle fire screen with "press power button for recovery" at the bottom. I press power and nothing, if I hold for 20 sec.s it powers off but on reboot, back to the same triangle screen.. What is wrong.. Thanks..
