I saw the tutorials, and I tried to upgrade my KF to Jelly bean with no results. This is what I got:
1. Kindle fire (D01E) 2. System version 6.3.3_user_4112920 3. Stock rom.... (no idea how to get this info) 4. I've restore it recently, it was woorking for about a year with ICS 4.0.4, suddenly it reboot and all what I could do was restore to stock OS version. 5. I've been trying to root it or even enter to recovery mode, bur it doesn't do it. 6. I use windows 7 ultimate x64 Need help!!!!
Thanks in advance
MrCougar214: I have the Kindle fire, not HD version, but i don't think it's a Gen1. I think it's a Gen 2 as it doesn't look like yours. The back has the shinny black metal strip on it with the speaker. And it has version 7.5.1 on it. So what should i flash to this device? 4.2, 4.4, etc.?
who4444444444: just finished this following your video. works great on kindle 1 ver. 6.3.3 thank you to you and the developer of this rom hashcode. Only problem was computer could not see kindle as usb drive when connected to usb cord after flashing rom. on post 259 of this thread on xda forum http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=37351172&postcount=259 is a fix, check it out. He says open terminal emulator on kindle (available from play store) and type this exactly.
su (then hit enter, dont type this) setprop persist.sys.usb.config mass_storage,adb (then hit enter, dont type this.Then reboot your KF.)
make sure to type it with spaces as shown. This the same as you would do with a linux system on a computer That was all it took for me after hours of fiddling about and searching and reading. That is why I am adding this comment because I knew someone had to have found a cure for this issue. I have also used rootjunky videos to root a droid bionic phone and a razr m phone. both worked great. Thanks again to all the tech guys that us get what we want from our devices.

David Shumaker: 1. I found the Fastboot cable a necessity to load TWRP & FFF 2. Used KFU v0.9.9, jb-4.2.2-kfire-hashcode-2013-02-12, & gapps-jb-20121212-signed 3. 1st time through I used the wrong GAPPS and got into a loop with an error saying “Unfortunately a process has stopped”. Even in that condition I was able to connect the Kindle to computer and used the computer to place the proper (gapps-jb-20121212-signed) on it. I re-ran the tolls and all was good.
TheOutsider04: AOSP IS vanilla Android. Everything else is derived from that.
