Sachin Jayaseelan: Just wanted to say Thank You (and all the developers). This work around is
an ray of hope for all those Kindle Fire users outside USA who paid a lot
of money to buy this device and now regretting their decision. While Kindle
is a good piece of hardware the Amazon customized ROM was so not up to the
mark. To top that I couldn't use this tablet for anything except reading
books. The funny part is that it won't even let me install an application
from the Amazon store as I do not have a US credit card. Now that if you
ask me is pretty lame. In Jellybean now, works look me a charm. If it helps
anyone, I was able to do the whole process in less than 30 min. Yes, I did
spend two days reading up on this just to be sure of what I was doing. Just
follow the instructions as is and you will be surprised how easy this is.
You may want to watch out for the 1. ADB driver issue (down to your version
of windows) which can be resolved by following the instructions on xda. 2.
Ensure that the zip file downloaded from xda (ROM and Google apps) are
downloaded properly and free of errors.
Thanks Again. Good luck to others.

Daniel Rodriguez: Use a factory cable is not necessary for recover the KF from bricks,
basically the problem is founded by driver that is not recognized when
stuck in the boot screen appairs caused by bad lucky flashing TWRP or CWM
recoverys on last stock update, i solved installing driver from device
manager selecting type (Android user interface driver) the driver is
installed with yellow caution icon because needs to detect power on KF for
fully detection but anyway it-s OK... then running Kindle Fire Utility
v0.9.9 just tapping option 1 and select 1 again *Normal Mode*, the
aplication will show the message (waiting for device...), just unplug the
usb cable and reconnect again and VOILAA. The KFU make you work and KF
reboots on normal mode for continue flashing CWM and many many more. I'm
testing CM10.1 now. Happy New Year 2014 From Venezuela. Sorry for my
Shakira's English XD.

Tori Reichenbach: Hello, I have been following your tutorials throughout the whole process. I
have successfully rooted and loaded TWRP on my Kindle. I downloaded and
installed Jelly Bean ROM and gapps. It is successfully installed except
something is wrong. When it boots up and loads the android apps, it takes
me back to the flashy pretty triangle boot screen, and the flashes an
error: android.process.phone has stopped. It won't go any farther. I've
tried uninstalling and reinstalling. It is so close that it seems like
there must be a file missing or something tiny isn't right. Do you know how
I can solve this? Thanks
