Does it need to be installed on top of cm11? Tried to TWRP factory reset then install a couple of times and just got stuck of grey kindle fire logo, wiping cache/dalvik didn't help.

You should just need to wipe system and data. Did you installed the first zip ? I forget to remove some oc code in it so it could be that. Also, it could be useful for me to know if it worked for someone :)

Don't think I wiped system, just basic factory reset in twrp. Tried with the original zip, downloading the new one now and will wipe data too before installing.

No luck I'm afraid, stuck at grey logo again. CM11 installs fine but both CM12 zips won't cooperate.
Hum ok :/

Then we'll have to wait for more reports to see. At least it work fine here so maybe I need to update twrp or your firmware files. By the way, what is exactly your device ? Mine is thor 16gb WiFi only, and I comes from 3.2.4 bootloader but updates non-hlos (firmwares) to 4.5.3.

Thor 16GB WiFi, latest TWRP, 3.2.3.2 bootloader (bypassed, not unlocked). I'll try a few more things and report back if I have any luck.

Running fine for me. Tested now about 3 hrs. No big issues so far.
Mine is thor 16 gb wifi, bootloader 3.2.3 and unlocked.

I just updated the twrp recovery thread to lollipop sources, dunno if it can change something. Just be sure to have a working system before flashing it in case of problem, which should'nt happens : http://android.mydedibox.fr/hdx/twrp-recovery-hdx-thor-2.8.5.0_2015-03-09.zip

Tried that with same results, no matter what I do always the same stuck gray logo. All other roms work without issue so I suppose I'll just have to go back to CM11 until I figure this out.

    Hi guys,

    I had some time to work on the new kernel this weekend and I *think* it's is decent shape for testing. I let the active HDX devs know I had pushed the fix for the camera and hopefully I can get some solid debugging on Apollo to fix the display soon.

    For those curious, the sources are currently here:
    https://github.com/KFire-Android/kernel_amazon_hdx-common (cm-12.1 branch)

    I'm also going to try and get the RIL fixes pulled into my cm-12.1 device branches, so we can get ready for official CyanogenMod device builds.

    Thanks, is there something I can fix? or does it need a new rom build?

    - Needs a new build
    - I have spent the last however much time learning how to fix issues with CM-12 on Apollo
    - I think I now have enough info up update Github with the latest changes
    - I have revised Amazon's Synaptics Driver so that the touch rotation is no longer 90 degrees askew from the framebuffer
    - This also means for Apollo the natural screen orientation will be landscape - which makes sense given where the camera is and the hardware buttons.
    - I have added a new attribute in the DeviceTree Bindings so that the mod can be enabled selectively, so as not to effect the thor implementation
    - This means no more patches to the framework to handle rotation properly
    - The video issues no longer exist
    - After I have got through a few things I will make the required changes, fork the bits of CM-12 that need special attention for our devices
    - Then will rebuild and release
    - I can't say exactly when I will get it done by but it won't be too far from now.
    - I'll make new build for both thor and apollo

    Hi everyone, I have been extremely busy at work - and everything else life throws at us including the bursts of sunshine which have to be enjoyed- so have not had much time recently. Pretty much the same for the other guys.

    We'll get back to it and progress very shortly I'm sure.
