Hi there,
I would like to ask if there is someone that could help me solve my problem.

I was going to install a custom ROM from Hashcode (OFFICIAL CM10.1), but before I had a chance to flash it I stumbled upon a problem when I tried to flash TWRP from TWEEZERMOD 1-CLICK cordless METHOD, I downloaded TWRP ran it and while it was installing
it rebooted my Kindle Fire 2 I could see Kindle Fire logo and after that flowed by RED SCREEN and no way out of there, I can turn it off when I
long press the power button for 20 seconds, but after I turn it on same thing happens Kindle Fire logo and followed by RED Screen.

I purchased a fastboot cable from Ebay
and after plugging it into my KF2 and then into my laptop, I'm stuck at Fastboot screen with a traffic light BLINKING GREEN.

Can anyone help me with the next steps, as I have no idea what to do, and I tried to google this with no luck.

Thank in advance :)

Screen

Actually I followed your instructions at the beggining of your thread and they worked like a charm, the KF First Aid didn't for some reason,

But anyway thank you lots.

For people who have the same problem just download this tool from mindmajick

Restoration tool link:

Once downloaded run the tool and in the options choose

1st Check fastboot status

2nd Erase cache and userdata

3rd Restore-Boot and recovery

4th then wait after your Kindle will be booting for a bit, at some point I thought I was stuck at the booting logo but it was just preparing your KF2 ;)

SUCCESS =D

Hi there again,

Kind REGARDS :fingers-crossed:

Red Screen Kindle Fire 2 Help

I have had a look at that one and for some reason the KF First Aide cannot find my device,
it keeps giving me this message whenever I try to Completly restore or Display the fastboot Status
"The system cannot find the path specified".

I would like to try it your way but as I don't understand the terms used it your instructions or procedures I'm unable to do so,
that is why I asked for you step by step guide.

So when I got to your post I went straight into last page number 4

Followed these steps

QUOTE:
DRIVERS- USE THE ONES IN THIS POST- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1893838

ADB- USE THE ADB FROM THE KINDLE FIRE FIRST AID TOOL-
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2096888

I installed Kindle fire First AID tool and also installed the drivers needed, unistalled SDK.

Now I don't know what to do, can you help me please?:)

And one more question,

I just check the list of my apps and I see that my super user is still there and working,

does that mean my Kindle is still rooted?

If so is there any way I could install Gapps on it, the version of my Kindle Fire 2 is 10.4.1

Thank you:highfive:

Installing your custom ROM on my KF2"

Hello there,

Yes I do know that, but as it didn't work for me to install TWRP which is quite important for flashing a new ROM

I will be doing a step by step guide that worked for me.

You see I was following the instruction for Hashcode CM 10.1 and when I tried to install TWRP on my KF2

I got stuck at the Red Screen, and then I had to unbrick my KF2, thanks to Mindmajick I unbricked. :D

I've got a Factory cable on the way, will be here tomorrow.

Also DL'd the KF2 SRT from MindMajick, I'm assuming this does require said Factory Cable, no?

Thanks!

Yes it does I bought one from Ebay, and once you get it just plug the cable into your KF2, then to your computer and follow the instructions at the beginning of this post. :good:
