cd to kfu/tools directory and issue fastboot devices to see if it comes up there
If it does, then place the recovery.img file into that kfu/tools folder and type
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
I have rooted and flashed multiple Android devices over the last three years, including a Gen 1 Kindle Fire about a year ago.
HTC Nexus 1
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Two HP Touchpads
So that's seven. Plus this new KF.
I should have just pushed everything manually through ADB, I guess. I ran this version of KFU, and it only partially installed TWRP. On reboot, it locked at the kindle fire graphic. Windows 7 with ADB and SDK reports Unknown Device on USB. Can't manually reinstall drivers and get it recognized. ADB and Fastboot status is offline.
Maybe I did something foolish. Dunno. I popped it open and tried shorting the pin. But, without a factory cable, i guess I am unable to push the boot image via USB.
Not expecting support, just thought I would give a data point. I tried to make a shortcut and bricked a new KF. I did try the unbrick utilities and ADB strings that others have suggested, BTW. With ADB offline, no comms.
Hard brick?Well what you did was you tried to use KFU for a New Kindle 2 which will brick the device. This tool does not work for KF2 and in fact will brick the device.
By the way, there is a different forum for the Kindle Fire HD, KF2, etc. This forum is only for the original Kindle Fire.
Fantastic! I spent about half an hour messing with my Kindle trying to figure out why ADB wasn't responsive... And this took all of 30 seconds and my TWRP is updated.Updating to twrp 2.4 (w/o PC, & w/o flashable zip)
1. Download it here:
2. Rename it to recovery.img & move it to sdcard/
3. In terminal, Type this:
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5
4. Enjoy! That's it!
I had other crash issues, I tried 0.9.5 &it worked gr8 for meNot sure why I can't get this to work but I have tried several suggestions on this thread. Whenever I launch the utility, whatever option I select it seems to start to download something, then says fail opening shift: No such file or directory. The kindle has been told to reboot in Fastboot Mode.
Then it says Fastboot uses a different device ADB You should check device manager for Kindle or Amazon and rerun the driver installer. Then it reboots my kindle.
I am assuming it means there is an issue with the driver but I cannot figure it out. I have uninstalled the driver several times, re ran the driver installer, tried a few other things mentioned in the thread and it still comes to the same problem.
Initial work by ubeezee & yareally on there forum thread.
Full revert based off method from Clavin, "tweaked" by Vashypooh.
Full credit of TWRP goes to Team Win for releasing an awesome tool! Good job guys.
I checked with Dees_Troy prior to integrating TWRP install into the tool, and he was alright with it. If this changes, it will be changed or completely removed per their request.
