Deregister your kindle before restarting under settings My account

Download file Here

Extract the file to c:\ (so should have C:\Root then all the files extracted their)

Click on 8.9StariROM_Installer.bat Fallow Directions Given!

If you already have TWRP go to step 6:
After reboot if you get Red Screen means you dont have TWRP then run FixRedScreen.bat that is in the Root folder

Download This File Also

Exact file to SDCARD\TWRP\BACKUP\000000\ in its own folder

Restart Kindle and go into TWRP by Holding Up button When the Blue Kindle Fire is showing at boot

Once in TWRP Restore the Folder you Just Extracted to your Kindle

Click the home button then Click Wipe Then Factory Reset
Once done reboot and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dont forget to add amazon account and google account plus set the time.
And Set Wallpaper with Wallchanger app (under tools, in the app drawer)

If you want the Kindle Fire HD Kindle Reader To view books


Remove your kindle app from playstore first

Copy this file to your Kindle!

Turn off your Kindle and use volume up to get into TWRP when you turn it on

Go to install and select the file that you downloaded and copied onto your Kindle (amazoncrap.zip)

Wipe Cache/Dalvik

Reboot System

once Started Click check box and click on GO Locker

To View your books clock on Home under app drawer! Dont use Kindle.
