    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)
