Help! For Christmas my parents bought me a Kindle Fire but before I got it, they gave it to my sisters boyfriend who is a techy kind of guy and he put twrp and hacked the kindle. Well the other day I was trying to download something and it rebooted and went straight to the TWRP gray screen (the one with the options to install, backup, restore, wipe, etc.) I do not know what to do! I have searched through threads on the forum about using the kindle fire utility, it doesnt work. My computer recognizes the kindle as an android phone and when i run the utility, it says my boot status is unknown so i dont think that the program is detecting my kindle? Please help!

I have tried the link that you have given me before and it didnt work as well. I've also tried the reboot -> system and the other option given. Neither of them work. My problem is, whenever i start up my Kindle, it goes straight to that screen after the yellow triangle screen. Any help?

I'm assuming you accidentally hit "reboot into recovery. If you are not a "techy" guy, you need to get in that mode and follow the link dude provided. You will need to download a couple programs to your pc, and acquire a microusb cable. Follow directions to the TEE' and you'll be ready to go in no time.

kfu is just good for what you need - regardless what status it reports try option1 and bootmode normal
if it does not work check your drivers - in device manager it should show up under android phones - if not update the driver - try to run install_drivers.bat in the kfu directory first - if it does'nt work try to update manually - it is in the drivers\kindle directory of kfu

regarding drivers:

then retry kfu option 1 bootmode normal

the adb status is offline - this is normal when the kf is in fastboot mode

normal boot -> adb commands YES -> fastboot commands NO
fastboot -> adb commands NO -> fastboot commands YES
recovery -> adb commands YES -> fastboot commands NO

- run kfu
- select option 1 (bootmode menu)
- select option 1 (bootmode normal)

that's it

what did you try to install ? it seems the kf can't boot into a system ...

and as you asked earlier - everything (besides hardware failures) is fixable
but a hardware failure seems not to be your problem

I cant exactly remember but i remember it downloaded and then the kindle randomly shut off and when i turned it back on it just went straight to the recovery... ive tried resetting the kindle several times right now and even going back into the recovery mode and nothing is working :/ i believe the problem has gotten worse

Like i mentioned before, i didnt set it up. I cant tell you what rom was downloaded but i do remember some programs that ive seen before in guides?? There were like the golauncher and other "go" programs... if that doesnt stand out to any specific one i believe there were some cryogen (or however its spelled) stuff on it... i know it was set up just like his verizon phone

then i would think it it was cm7 - download from here: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?hmdc0lmgvnlbg97
this is the update version - i would try this one first so you should not loose anything

- boot into twrp
- now you should see the kf on your computer
- copy the downloaded file on the kf
- tap install
- select the file and install

try this first
