I've gotten to the part where I restarted my Kindle, and now I seem to be stuck at the "kindle fire" screen. I got past the < waiting for device > part, also. Have restarted multiple times, and Windows does not recognize the device.

EDIT: Windows does recognize it, but it still does not boot up.

The guide worked great. Thank you!

Got stuck on the yellow triangle, modified the PID as well as the vendor ID to update the drivers, rebooted PC, ran the two fastboot commands to get ADB to recognize the device, then just followed the install commands again. The recovery is running like a champ!

After a couple of trys, my kindle showed up as "kindle" in device manager,( it was showing as "unknown device") and I was able to install drivers and then
fastboot -i 0x1949 oem idme bootmode 4000 worked and


fastboot -i 0x1949 reboot worked and the fire booted into yellow triangle screen, then into kindle fire screen then booted up all the way, so SUCCESS...

Please help me, I'm just about to cry. I've allready bricked one of my kindles and sent it back.so this time they won't take it back.


I was following the tutorial here: http://rootzwiki.com...ur-kindle-fire/, I rooted the kindle again with burito root so I could enter the commands. I entered:
adb shell
idme bootmode 4002

Then I realized I didn't have fastboot. I forgot I entered the bootmode command, and I turned the kf off.now it just turns on with the kf logo. I added this to the inf file:
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_0100
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_0100&MI_01
And I added 0x18d1 to the ini file.
When I say install from location android-sdks/extras/google/usb_driver it does not come up with android_winusb.inf, instead it comes up with oem.inf files located in windows>inf, and if I install it, it says device not found in adb.

PLEASE HELP

I unbricked my kindle. Here is how the easy way

1.Download kindle fire utility
2.Unzip kindle fire utility
3.To install the driver,its easy,just plug in your kindle, when it pops up with the install wizard say pick from the location of:
KindleFireUtility>drivers>kindle
4.run kindle fire utility,select 1 then select 1 again

That's it, hope it helps someone like me
