    Manually Install Google apps on rooted 6.3.3 without KFU

    Note: Google Apps are not needed to install TWRP/FFF

    1. First Root Kindle Fire (see Post #1)
    2. Install a Root file manager,
    like ES Explorer http://www.estrongs.com/
    Note:If installing Google apps have been tried before.
    with a Root file manager
    remove /system/app/GoogleServicesFramework.apk and vending.apk
    remove /data/app/GoogleServicesFramework.apk and vending.apk
    then reboot​
    3. Download
    Google app.zip, place on sd card (if not there already)
    Mega - XDA - http://d-h.st/ZNt -
    4. Unzip with ES Explorer (should be in /sdcard/downloads/app.zip)
    5. Open
    /sdcard/downloads/apps/data folder created with ES Explorer,​
    6. Select
    GoogleServicesFramework.apk, SyncSettings.apk, and vending.apk, select copy
    paste to /system/app/
    long press on GoogleServicesFramework.apk, then check it's box
    select more (bottom right)​
    7. Change File Permissions
    right of permissions select change to chmod: 644 (rw-r—r--)
    Code:
    	Read	Write	Execute
    Owner     X       X
    Group     X           
    Other     X

    select ok, cancel, back, /sdcard/downloads/apps/data
    select com.modaco.marketlauncher.apk, install

    then reboot
    Done.

    8. [Optional] If you want to sync Google Calendar and Google Contacts
    copy

    Other apps are from Kindle Fire Uitilty

    if modaco.marketlauncher.apk does not allow playstore app to work in stock launcher, push a different launcher from https://play.google.com/store/search?q=launcher
    or install com.gau.go.launcherex-1.apk from apps.zip

    [6.3.4][6.3.3] Flashing FFF and TWRP without Fastboot Cable

    Kindle Fire 1 only (system version 6.X.X) any other kindle may brick

    [SIZE=+1]Can Fastboot be used on Linux and Mac?[/SIZE] Yes see

    For Windows:
    note: If drivers do not install correctly kindle may boot to Fastboot, you will need a different pc to send normal boot code to kindle
    or an Non-Windows option like soupkit.

    Required:
    Root the kindle fire
    If you are not sure if Kindle is Rooted download Root Checker and verify root.​
    Step 1: Watch VideoStep 2: Download Files
    Download fbmode and unzip.
    Download ADB Files
    Download fff-u-boot_v1.5.bin
    Download a TWRP .img like openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img

    or the One Zip Kindle.Fire.fastboot.Files.zip md5:5D68723E59AD5C1EFCCD3481C6D8E63B

    Verify md5 checksums for files https://sites.google.com/site/sdshadowscollection/home/hash-checksums
    Step 3: Place Files
    Create a folder in c drive named adb,
    unzip/extract files,
    copy AdbWinUsbApi.dll, AdbWinApi.dll, adb.exe, fastboot.exe, fbmode, fff-u-boot_v1.5.bin, and openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img to adb folder.​
    Step 4: Push Fastboot Mode File to Kindle
    Open a Command Prompt (start>all programs>accessories>Command prompt)
    change directory to adb with
    Code:
    cd\adb
    Install fbmode by using
    Code:
    adb push fbmode /data/local/tmp
    Set fbmode permissions by using:
    Code:
    adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/fbmode
    Step 5: Forcing Fastboot Mode
    Run these commands here:
    Code:
    adb shell 
    su
    cd /data/local/tmp
    ./fbmode
    Press enter once
    Then
    Code:
    exit
    Code:
    exit
    Code:
    adb reboot
    Kindle reboots to fastboot mode
    Fastboot mode Looks just like boot screen, just no boot animation​

    Step 6 Testing Fastboot Commands
    Run these commands in command prompt
    Code:
    fastboot -i 0x1949 devices
    should get a return code something like
    Code:
    12345689abcd...   Kindle
    or
    Code:
    fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar product
    should get a return code something like
    Code:
    Kindle

    If you do not get a proper code return, drivers may not be correct, I will post some troubleshooting options in post #7
    If you got a proper code return continue with Flashing TWRP/FFF​

    Step 7: Flashing TWRP and FFF (custom Recovery and Bootloader)

    Code:
    fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img
    fastboot -i 0x1949 flash bootloader fff-u-boot_v1.5.bin
    fastboot -i 0x1949 oem idme bootmode 4000
    fastboot -i 0x1949 reboot
    Step 8
    Done​

    Once FFF/TWRP are on Kindle you can install a custom rom, if you want.
    Pick a Rom from [INDEX] Kindle Fire Development
    You may need to upgrade TWRP before installing a rom see Kindle Fire Flashable Recoveries

    Flashing Twrp in FFF bootloader with fastboot.exe

    Note: These files are for Kindle Fire 1 Only, using these one other devices may brick them.

    see [Video] Flashing TWRP in FFF bootloader For Kindle Fire 1

    Check drivers before flashing see Post #1
    download adb-fastboot.zip, openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img
    Step 1:
    Create a folder in c drive named adb,
    unzip/extract files,
    copy AdbWinUsbApi.dll, AdbWinApi.dll, adb.exe, fastboot.exe, and openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img to adb folder.​
    Step 2
    connect Kindle Fire to pc, via usb, power off Kindle​
    Step 3
    Open a Command Prompt (start>all programs>accessories>Command prompt)
    change directory to adb with​
    Code:
    cd\adb
    Option: check fastboot connection
    Code:
    fastboot devices
    Power on Kindle
    should get a return code back something like
    Code:
    123456789abcde  kindle
    if not check device manager again, even if you do not get a proper return, flashing may still work.
    if you got a good reply or believe drivers are good, enter
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img
    fastboot reboot
    after reboot you should be able to enter recovery by holding power button and releasing when recovery is selected

    if you are having trouble flashing try
    Connect kindle to PC,
    Power Off kindle
    run command
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img
    Power on kindle
    then
    Code:
    fastboot reboot

    if you are Flashing 1.5 FFF bootloader use
    Code:
    fastboot flash bootloader fff-u-boot_v1.5.bin

    If you want to install CM11 you need to upgrade to TWRP 2.7.X.X use zip-openrecovery-twrp-2.7.1.0-otter.zip install in current twrp and reboot.

    Troubleshooting: Flashing TWRP/FFF

    If you got to step
    Code:
    fastboot devices
    and do not get a proper code return, and you have checked drivers in Device Manager, or drivers don't seem to install correctly
    you can try
    Code:
    fastboot -i 0x1949 oem idme bootmode 4000
    then
    Code:
    fastboot -i 0x1949 reboot
    if kindle reboots, fastboot commands are working
    and you can retry Step 5: Forcing Fastboot Mode
    skip fastboot devices step , and continue with Step 7: Flashing TWRP and FFF

    Fixing drivers
    If you got to Step 7, and Kindle is in Fastboot mode, but Fastboot commands are not working try
    In Device manager>select unknown device>Update driver software>
    browse my computer for driver software>Let me pick from a list of Device Drivers on my computer>
    show all(uncheck show only compatible)>look for ADB interface or android phone
    select yes to Ignore warning
    may need to reboot both.

    well, i mess it up somehow and now my kindle is stuck on the 'kindle fire" screen

    everything was fine until step five, the kindle did reboot into fastboot mode but it wouldn't let me continue with the next steps

    the kindle does shows up in device manager under "android phone -> android ADB interface"

    in command prompt it shows as offline and boot status unknown

    i tried a few things, but cant seem to get it back to normal, the unbrick utility is not doing the trick

    any help with this?



    edit: i ordered a fastboot cable adapter thing couple days ago, it should arrive here saturday or so, guess im gonna need it to fix it?

      or the One Zip Kindle.Fire.fastboot.Files.zip md5:5D68723E59AD5C1EFCCD3481C6D8E63B

      Verify md5 checksums for files https://sites.google.com/site/sdshadowscollection/home/hash-checksums
      Step 3: Place Files
      Create a folder in c drive named adb,

      copy AdbWinUsbApi.dll, AdbWinApi.dll, adb.exe, fastboot.exe, fbmode, fff-u-boot_v1.5.bin, and openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img to adb folder.​
      Step 4: Push Fastboot Mode File to Kindle
      Open a Command Prompt (start>all programs>accessories>Command prompt)
      change directory to adb with
      Code:
      cd\adb

      Code:
      fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.2.2.1-blaze.img
      fastboot -i 0x1949 flash bootloader fff-u-boot_v1.5.bin
      fastboot -i 0x1949 oem idme bootmode 4000
      fastboot -i 0x1949 reboot
      Step 8
      Done​

      Once FFF/TWRP are on Kindle you can install a custom rom, if you want.
      Pick a Rom from [INDEX] Kindle Fire Development
      You may need to upgrade TWRP before installing a rom see Kindle Fire Flashable Recoveries
