  2. Hi..I’m having a lot of trouble trying to restore my kindle fire after it became bricked (stuck on FireFireFire logo) while rebooting when I tried installing android 4.0. I’ve tried Unbrick Utility and I’ve tried using Kindle Fire Utility to reboot in normal mode, but none of it seems to do anything except let me get to the TWRP recovery menu. I can’t transfer the file to my kindle..It doesn’t show up on my computer as a removable disc (usb mass storage, etc.) it just shows up in device manager as an android phone (Android Phone-> Android composite ABD Interface) AND kindle (Portable devices-> G:/> properties> device description: kindle) at the same time. I really hope you can help somehow…I’m so sorry for bothering you, but I need help ASAP

  3. Hello

    I recently wipe everything from my kindle fire. What can I do to restore it? I can mount it through TWRP, and transfer files this way. Please help.

  4. Jayce,

    I lost my rooted KF password and after several days of frustration decided to restore to factory default. After reboot, I got TWRP menu (v2.0.0). I followed your video instructions and upon Reboot only come up with TWRP menu again (not KF).

    Also, I attempted to connect to PC to sideload and not a single machine detects my KF. Am I hosed?
