    Mount your SD card and install a ROM. It should boot normally after install.

    It sounds like you are in fast boot. Boot into recovery instead when the option is there (during the blue screen time). Do youwamt to install a custom ROM? If so, factory reset and wipe cache , dalvik cache and system all while in recovery. Then flash the rom zip file and gapps file if needed. Then when you reboot from recovery be sure to choose "reboot system".

    do you know how to get into the recovery page? when you get there, its the 4th button says "wipe" touch that. and you'll see 8 other options. touch cache, itll say are you sure then press the button. then do the same with dalvik cache and system.

    ohhh your using cwm recovery. thats why we were all getting confused :) im not really familiar with cwm for the kindle. but if you want heres a video thatll show how to install twrp recovery How to install TWRP 2.0 Recovery on Kindle Fire? - YouTube
    and to download it you can go here [RECOVERY]TWRP 2.2.2.0 touch recovery [2012-08-24] - xda-developers and it tells you how to download it. unless someone else is familiar with using cwm. i might try and read up later on it if you prefer to keep that.

    Further, hashcode himself has said to stay away from cwm. You MUST use twrp if you don't want any issues.

    just hook your kindle up to your computer and put the rom in a folder. i always put mine in the download folder. then from there boot into recovery, find the rom in the folder you put it in, and install. dont forget to wipe cache, dalvik and system before rebooting.
