Can someone help me with a fix immediately. Brand new device that i bought and now i am in trouble in the experimentation process. Now the other problem is when i connect my device to computer to sideload the two. This will help me a lot in future plans.

I have a kindle fire 7 inch hd I did everything as said but restarted on kindle fire logo and not get her out of that state and help me please. One question, is this for otter 1 or otter 2? Lack of responces and a terriblely thought out video.

IF you are supposed to copy over the CMD 10 zip files before you twrp it. And now there is no way for me to put it back to stock to start over or to move forward. Hey did you ever get a resolution because I am currently running into this problem. I get black screen all the time. Any thoughts how to fix it though?

Once I sideloaded it, it booted. It started normally and it has been working. Let me know if you need more help. I have the same problem. But sideload has not finished installing. Thanks for the video. I got almost everything working great. My only problem is if I reboot the Kindle, it gets stuck at the spinning Cyanogenmod splash screen.

Please help or I am looking at a brick. Am I completely screwed here? I left a message yesterday. Please respond with a solution.

I respect your work here but need to get out of this situation. Your computer is not supposed to detect your tablet as an external hard drive while you are in twrp. Try installing the driver again and using sideload. Refer to the instructions above. The whole operation in the video, operation 21, loading the folders onto the device were not available. It will say starting sideload. Your computer will not see the device as an external storage anyway!!

You need to use command prompt and use the sideload command. Is there any way to back out of this and get back to kindle factory or am i left with a brick? That is all correct, pluggd in, in twrp on sideload under advanced and nothing comes up under adb sideload.

I made a mistake while putting the android on my Kindle. I followed all the steps up until step I pressed the on button for 30 seconds, still nothing.

I plugged into the charger, still nothing. Has my kindled died or is there any hope for it?

Its just off as if the battery is dead.

No response from any of the buttons, No response after plug in or anything. Normally this folder is hidden, so you need do step 6 before enable hidden files and folders. Then you will see it. Hi, I tried rooting my kindle fire hd 8. Any tips to fix this?

I have read all the above comments and so far nobody has posted this question. I have gotten through step 20 and instead of the kindle going to twrp it goes to fastboot mode. Anybody have an answer to that? If you do that, it will go into twrp. I totally understand what your saying. I did a root on the original kindle fire. When I turn on the kindle I push the volume up button it goes to the blue kindle logo for a second and then displays fastboot mode instead of twrp. I continue holding the button and it does nothing other than sit in the fastboot mode.

If I dont push the volume button up right away it sits in the blue kindle fire logo without change. Thanks for replying quickly though! Mine did the same thing and I thought it was bricked. I think I got it into fastboot mode and started over from step I just went back to step 16 and it is stuck in the waiting for device screen in command prompt.

Hope someone have a solution for this situation. I mean my unit has power, charging is not the issue. What should I do? Anyone have a way to stop Windows 7 installing the drivers and getting step 5 to work? How do I restore this Kindle back to factory. When I do a restore from the dual boot loader it just hangs at the blue kindle fire logo.

Mine is like that too. Just power off , then hold power button for just 1 sec to power on and immediately press and hold the volume up button. It was twrp that was the problem. I upgraded twrp to 2. To do that I restarted the Kindle over and over holding the up button. It finally booted to twrp then I flashed the twrp 2. Like the video said for cm Also upgraded to cm No issues at all.

It complete the move command mv su successfully. It bombs with the write error when trying to move the Superuser. It bombs with the write error when trying to cp busybox. The chown and chmod and rm commands appear to have finished.

I was hoping to move some. I tried moving Swype and OfficeSuite with no success. It was a large file 28mb? After removing that apk I submitted the Superuser move command again and still received the same error. Are we dealing with a permissions error or is this possibly the OS people put in to prevent us from doing this very thing?

I was able to fix the problem through the help of some posts related to Superuser. Seems this is a problem not just on Kindles.

When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but whdn opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! I am not sure you have problems with silk or Chrome. The tutorial was clearr and simple to use. Only problem is that I cannot open it.

Why you cannot open it? Can you see the chrome app icon in apps in your tablet after installing? Says chrome is installed. Icon on home screen. When you tap it just blinks. Tried uninstall and all over again with same results. Try to do anything else and it asks whether to use Chrome or Silk. If you choose chrome nothing happens. Did you try to install an older version? You can get previous versions in apk file from apk mirror. This one should work: I have used this app to gain the games I needed!!

It only lets me have the Amazon downloaded ones. The parental control in Fire tablets are for apps from Amazon app store only. You cannot assign other side-loaded apps. They used to play on the Flixter app, but that app now says it is no longer supported for Kindle.

Unfortunately, I took all my downloaded versions of the movies off my Kindle to free up space. Then Flixter stopped supporting movie downloads and playback, so now I need a way to get the movies onto my Kindle plus a way to play them.

VLC Player seems like the perfect solution for playing them, so thank you very much for that suggestion. If the app can download movies, you can try to reinstall the app. You can check it with the developer. VLC is only a player. Hi Simon, Thanks for the information. We just bought a kindle fire and followed the above steps.

However unable to see the chromecast icon in 1market mobile. What should we do? Thank u for the info. It worked and I am now able to use Google. The only thing I can not do is login. I need to be able to. I downloaded 1 moble years ago on my kindle. Havent used it much since android phone. Just tried to download google translate and moble 1 app says no connection.

The Youtube version does not matter. You need a matched version of Play services. You need get the APK files for Android 4. But it seems there are some playing issues fast playing, without sound with the latest Youtube app in HDX.

There are no issues in the newer and far cheaper ones. Yes, the recent 2 or 3 generations of fire HD tablet. Anyway, the root problem is FireOS. In Fire OS 5, they gave up the efforts.

This is the reason why it is easier to use Google play store and other apps in latest tablet. Google Facebook LinkedIn Twitter. Comments How come in the first shot of your home screen, it showed all your apps, but when you downloaded the two apps, they were the only ones on the home screen?

Thanks, you helped me make my kindle have the abilities I wanted. The 1mobile app wont download on mine for some reason. Did you get any error messages when trying to download? This guide still works when you want to sideload apps to kindle fire 2nd gen.

Thank you for the help…. I can do homework now!!! Once you open the app, it should appear in the carousel. Most of them will not work. Sideload apps are not supported by Amazon. The main problem is that Amazon removed some essential items for Google framework.

For apps from other developers, usually you get less problems. Does this process work on Fire OS 4. When I start chrome it immediately crashes.
