    Hi folks. I just sold my rooted Kindle Fire which I used TWRP on. I know i've done backups and want to make sure the new owner cannot restore them. How can I make sure ALL backups of any kind of deleted? thanks.

    Plug it into your computer, you may have to boot into recovery and mount the ad if it does not see it. From your computer look for the TWRP folder on your kindle, inside this are folders containing your back ups, delete them and you should be good to go

    You can just delete the entire twrp folder and you're good to go.

    Yeah the folder would just get recreated by twrp when the new user made a backup.

    Since this is a root question, I took the liberty of moving this thread to the All Things Root section. Hope you don't mind, have a great 2013 :)
