    Thanks, that's what I looked at but it got me confused (e.g. it references files that don't exist, and I don't know if it's OK to use the "blaze" one if the docs say to use the "otter" ROM). That said, it led to the noob thread so I'll look there and will post there if I am still confused.
    Blaze and Otter are basically the same.
    And interchangeable
    OtterX is different

      Note: Some of the links in this thread were part of the DevDB project,​
      which discontinued in Dec 2020.​
      A new server is now up with those files.​

      Note:With the Fall of I will be posting Mirrors OtterX files here:​

      See Post 2 for ZIP DownloadsFor installing in recovery
      • 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.

      See Post 3 for Image DownloadsFor flashing in Bootloader/Fastboot
