    • These are TWRP/COTR/CWM Recoveries for the kindle Fire 1
    • Unlike the Official .img files, these are installed with a current custom recovery.
    • These are used for upgrading or downgrading current Recovery.
    • These are also safer because the checksum is verified before flashing.
    • I did not create the recoveries or the script that installs them, just combined/edited them, and tested that they work.
    • Some zips were created by others and i'm just linking them here.

    Please add CWM v6.0.5.0 to OtterX compatible recovery. I accidently choose the update recovery in the CM updater for OtterX CM Nightly ROM and I have CWM-based recovery v.6.0.5.0 instead of TWRP 2.7.1.0. It was used for next nightly CM ROM several times before I go back to TWRP for more convenient. I post it in the Hashcode OtterX ROM thread.

    Far as I can tell there is no CWM v6.0.5.0 for the Kindle Fire 1 Otter or Otter X, Guessing you flashed one for Kindle Fire HD 8.9 (jem) or Kindle Fire HD 7 (tate). Since you did not include a link, I can not test, or post link

    If you are running CM Otter X ROM of Hashcode, you can try to get CWM v6.0.5.0

    Far as I can tell there is no CWM v6.0.5.0 for the Kindle Fire 1 Otter or Otter X, Guessing you flashed one for Kindle Fire HD 8.9 (jem) or Kindle Fire HD 7 (tate). Since you did not include a link, I can not test, or post link

    I could not find anywhere the CWM v6.0.5.0 for the Kindle Fire 1 link, but you could have it. I am back to Hashcode ROM (CM official support: https://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=otterx) from Slimkat. And this time I choose the option: Update CM recovery in the Developer options before update a new nightly rom (using CM updater). Then the recovery switched from TWRP 2.7.0.1 to CWM v6.0.5.0. It works on KF1 on next CM update.

    Which recovery to flash? Is it necessary?

    First of all, thanks for helping the community and supporting reuse of old hardware.

    My question to the community is - is there a FAQ somewhere that explains things for newbs? I was able to flash a FFU bootloader onto my kindle fire, but I don't know if I need to flash a recovery, and/or what's the difference between blaze and otter? Trying to avoid bricking my device if I mix a custom ROM with the wrong bootloader or recovery.

    Thanks!
