Yeah… I just ‘brick’ my Amazon Kindle Fire again after faced boot loop issue on Kindle Fire TWRP 2.0. Kindle Fire stuck at yellow triangle screen this time after install TRWP with Kindle Fire Utility. And adb cannot detect any device. But my Kindle Fire is still able to be detected at Windows as Android ADB Interface. So I know that it is not actually brick. Look around the Kindle Fire Utility run batch file. Found out that my Kindle Fire is on Fastboot mode ~ yellow triangle screen.

    Had the same problem after rooting with KFU and installing TRWP. Tried your method but I just get the after selecting 1. Normal

    Also the kindle has the ylleow triangle next to it in device manager, ut when I try and update the driver from the correct directory it cannot find the driver even though the android_winusb.inf file is there and correctly updated (this driver worked when I rooted the device)

    Any suggestions please?

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Put 0x18D1 in .android\adb_usb.ini file.

  • RT

    Thanks, fixed it by pointing the kindle deivice to use the usb driver in the KFU drivers directory.

    Will also add the 0x18D1 entry in .android\adb_usb.ini file for good measure.

  • Carlo Ferrari

    Thank you so much, you drove my out of this loop pnm my new Kindle. The kindle is almost useless with stock software out of US (no access to amazon app store, no possibility to buy mp3 or movies or getting access to prime streaming videos) so havind a recovery before messing with firmware is mandatory. Thanks again!

      Says what? Can’t see anything…

    • Joseph S

      do the same thing as above except do recovery and it should go back to normal

  • Chris

    I’m in a similar jam, only my device is listed as ‘Unknown Device’ in the device manager, and changing adb_usb.ini and adding 0x18D1 didn’t change anything. Windows is convinced that it does not need a driver, and states that ‘Unknown Driver’ is the best driver for the device.

    • Chris

      Sorry, it states ‘Unknown Device’ is the best driver.

      Any help with this problem?

      • Chris

        In a strange twist, the device rebooted back to the stock Kindle screen that I had before attempting to install TWRP.

        Any ideas as to what I should do next? I’m considering just trying to run TWRP again, but I figure I ought to be sure of what’s going on first.

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Are you using driver from this article?
          http://www.jayceooi.com/2011/12/29/how-to-install-kindle-fire-adb-usb-driver-video/

          If no, uninstall and remove previous installed driver. Then install new driver from above. And install TWRP later.

          • Chris

            I’m afraid I’m not sure of which driver is being provided at that link. It mentions a Kindle-Fire-Driver.7z, but doesn’t seem to have any visible link as to where it’s obtained.

            Also, the battery ended up dying on the Kindle, and now that it’s plugged in it repeatedly boots to the yellow triangle and then resets. Unplugging it makes the whole system turn off and it cannot be booted further. Windows doesn’t recognize it at all when plugged in. What is to do?

            • Chris

              Update: After a bit of time with the wall charger, it no longer repeatedly boots and Windows once again sees it as an Unknown Device. Any further advice from that point onward would be much appreciated.

              • http://rustyyow.com Rusty

                I was getting unknown device. It started working for me when I plugged USB to Kindle while the kindle was off. It would auto turn on and then show in devices as Kindle. From there install the drivers and try that. Hope it helps.

                • Chris

                  Tried this twice, and the second time I got it to work. Thanks a lot for your help! Now to start learning all about the real Android experience!

        open your KF and plug in your computer, try opening Computer Management, then update driver for kindle using driver given in Kindle Fire Utility, then it should let you start up again with Kindle Fire logo.

So what else can i do.

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Using my USB driver on other PC? Or KFU driver?

          • Danieldr

            i don’t understand. I ment is the kindle fire ruined?? I downloaded the usb driver on the other computer and it said that it was not able to download the driver. Would it be easier to do a systems restore on my PC and then try it again??

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              No, your Kindle Fire might just stuck at fastboot mode. You need to change it back to normal mode.

              I need to make sure that Kindle Fire USB driver is installed properly. Else PC can’t talk to Kindle Fire. So I asked are you using my USB driver here or Kindle Fire Utility USB driver. Can you PC detect your Kindle Fire in yellow triangle mode?

              Yes, do a system restore to remove previous installed USB driver and install a new one might help.

              • Danieldr

                i downloaded your USB driver and yes it shows up as Unkown Device with a triangle.

                • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

                  Install the USB driver with my guide. And make sure that it installed properly like my video. Then try to run above method to solve stuck at yellow triangle issue.

  • Danieldr

    Ok i redid everything, and now it shows that i have successfully installed the USB driver. then i started the kindle utility and did what you said in the first video about putting it in boot 4000 but it still just says waiting for device. Please let me know what i have to do next. Thanks

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      • Danieldr

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

  • Danieldr

    it comes back to my old screen saver the live one from when i rooted it from burrito root. Then when i swipe to open it shuts it down.

  • Danieldr

    ok i have it in the team win screen and i activated the mount usb then i will put the renamed updated 6.2.1 kindle update there, then i will unmount and hit restore tile and click on the update.zip and then that should be it. right??

  • Danieldr

    Ok. Everything is back to Go Launcher Ex. Thank you very much for you life saving help!!

  • joe

    Jayce,

    I noticed that your screenshot in KFU has status in adb offline… will it still work? I would assume it would come back with an error no device

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      It work for me.

  • Rick

    Ok — I’ve read thru just about all the comments, but I can’t get TWRP install to work (with either KFU .9 or .93)

    I had a previously rooted (burrito 2) kindle fire… I did the KFU TWRP install… I get a reboot and a yellow triangle, but it ALWAYS freezes. I can’t get past the yellow tri screen without issuing the fastbook cmds to get back to a normal boot.

    If I manually shutdown the kindle and turn it on, it’ll boot ok… but if I hold down the power button (until it goes amber) it’ll lock on the yellow triangle.

    I’ve tried reinstalling twrp a couple times… Maybe I need to do a manual install (instuctions?)

    Rick

  • Rick

    The manual twrp install seemed to have worked. Sorry for the false alarm guys — but I tried the automatic (KFU) install using several versions and it never worked!

    Hi Jayce,

    I’m afraid I’ve bricked my Kindle. After installing TRWP, I got the dreaded yellow triangle and it seems to be stuck in the recovery loop.
    I got the KIndle Unbrick Utility but it will not work because my computer does not recognize the Kindle at all. It does not show up in the Device Manager..I do not see Kindle/Unknown Device/Android in the list of devices.
    How do I install drivers when the device is not showing.
    I have been trying to solve this for about two weeks with no luck. Please help!

  • Duncan G

    I posted something similar on another page, but I’m posting it here in case I can get some help. My kindle fire is stuck in fastboot mode (the yellow triangle) and I can’t seem to get it to be recognized by the computer. At this point, I’m happy enough simply doing an entire factory reset, but I can’t even get it into a place where I can do that. I really would like to have my kindle fire back, as it’s brand new.

    I’ve tried installing the driver using your tutorial, but it’s still unrecognizable by the computer. I’m really upset and frustrated at this point.

    Hi Jayce

    My kindle just won’t boot up. it goes until the yellow triangle and then just reboots over and over again ,but only if it is plugged into a computer or if it is charging, when its not plugged it doesnt react at all! :(

    my computer detects the kindle but only for a few sec until it boots up again… such a stupid bootloop and i dont know what to do… when its not plugged into somewhere it doesnt react when i press the power button…. PLS HELP

    • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

      Hi Steven, do you have TWRP installed?

      • Steven

        Yes i installed trwp, i rooted the kindle, installed twrp, flashed it with cyanogenmod 9 and installed gapps, it worked all very well… but then i had to charge it… after an hour i pulled the cable out and tried to start it but nothing happened. then i plugged it in again and it booted up but just until the triangle and not further… then its in a loop and i cant do a thing because it boots up until the triangle, after a few sec it shuts off and then boots up and so on…

        even when i press the power button for more than 20 sec, nothing happens, it only react when its plugged in… but then there’s then f**king bootloop :( i’m really frustrated cause i just bought it…

        • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

          Make sure that you are using latest 3.0 kernel in CM9 ROM. It is known to have charging issue in 3.0 kernel.

          Or you can install CM7 ROM (stable) since you have TWRP installed.

          • Steven

            i would install another rom rightaway but i cant even get into twrp… have you ever heard of a similar problem? what should i do? i’d be very very glad if someone could help me….

            • http://www.jayceooi.com Jayce

              Yes. But I have no idea to solve it since you can’t load TWRP. Try to consult others at XDA website.
