Question:
First run after installation there was a page regarding the option to mount System as read-only with a checkbox whether that page should not re-appear. I did NOT enable (i.e. left it disabled) that checkbox, but I've not seen that page again (regardless if I re-booted into recovery via the extended shutdown menu, or by pressing Vol+&Power at start). Is that option somewhere in the settings? And is it to be considered a bug that the page did not re-appear?

It's not a bug, usually appears on first run only and should not impact TWRP's ongoing use.

How did you attempt to flash TWRP (Safestrap, Flashify, FireFlash)? In the end it really doesn't matter. If your HDX won't progress past the gray Kindle Fire screen it is probably toast. Do you know what version of FireOS was last on the device (3.x, 4.x)?

my hdx7 had been flashed twrp2.8, and flashed cm11. Today, I flashed cm12,but i found hdx7 cant work. So i think it maybe because twrp2.8 is old version.
i used twrp2.8 to flash new twrp3.0........

You failed to read the documentation. CM12 also requires an unlocked bootloader as clearly stated in the OP. That's why it didn't flash with TWRP 2.8. There is no "maybe". Played with fire and got burned.

Since you had TWRP 2.8 installed the last version of FireOS was likely 3.1.x. There is an outside chance your device can be recovered following instructions in the following thread. Good luck.

because my hdx7 is second-hand device,i don't know whether it is lock or not.
Before flashed twrp3.0 , it had been flashed twrp 2.8、 cm11. is it means unlock?
Well, to be as clear as possible about this. You had the real TWRP installed, i.e. TWRP 2.8.7.0, NOT Safestrap based on TWRP?
If you had the real TWRP installed you were on Fire OS v3.1.x - v3.2.3.2, which are unlockable versions. Even with Safestrap v3.7x it could be worth a try to unlock.
Again: You can't mess up anything by trying. It either unlocks or fails. And you can try the one-click-solution. Be sure to grab the PDA drivers if you suffer from the good ol' device not found problem.
