This recovery can't be flashed to the tablet meanwhile the bootloader is locked. We don't have any way to unlock it for now so you must launch it this way:

Code:
fastboot boot TWRP_Fire_2.8.7.0_adb.img

Edit: Project became stable. Got rid of the backlight error thanks to @diegocr.

Yes, however right now I'm just doing a highly customized, de-bloated, de-amazon'd, pre-rooted, stock based rom. I don't know if anyone is working on AOSP or CM based roms at the moment.
That sounds really great. I tried to make a deblooated rom, but I broke the settings application by accident. I guess I'll just wait until someone else releases theirs... :/

SD, I am trying to install TWRP as per the video. For some reason, my files look different then your and I am running Win 10. Any advice? Thanks much.
PS: When I get to the command prompt,, mine just opens up to my system, not the ADB folder....

EDIT: Ok, got it to go, don't know how, but it worked. Anyone else notice the device runs a little sluggish after this? Thanks!

hey since this is running lollipop amazon os. cany you guys make a costom rom like the hdx developers do that can be booted without unlocking the bootloader. they use safestrap which is like twrp but for locked bootloaders and install custom roms. they arnt fully custom they have amazon aspects that let it boot with the locked bootloader but it is almost fully custom the hdx has a nexus rom and a cm11 rom they made for it.

Did you install Google apps zip?
It's not unusual for google services to slow down a device

Thanks for the reply. Yes, did install the Google Apps Zip? Can that be uninstalled?
Not as easily as it they were installed.
Use a root file manager, to delete or rename or move.
Use titanium backup pro or similar app, to freeze google apps
you freeze all google apps, and see if performance improved, them unfreeze google apps one at a time to see which ones are causing issues.

    Is anyone currently working on modified stock builds for this tablet? I think a rom like Kinnology on previous devices is what this slate needs right now. I tried to debloat and add some of the regular android settings to the settings app, but I just ended up breaking things.... ;(
    Yup, working on SlimLP. At this point it is as stable as cm from ggow plus battery stats fixed. No plans to release it until bluettooth works.

    Any Tom development started yet?

    Yes, however right now I'm just doing a highly customized, de-bloated, de-amazon'd, pre-rooted, stock based rom. I don't know if anyone is working on AOSP or CM based roms at the moment.

    does anyone see any benefit to adding on the first page version 5.1.1 is not rootable at the moment? Or on any of the other main pages with procedures for root, roms, etc.

    Just wondering...
