Install Custom Recovery (TWRP) On Kindle Fire HD 7

For Kindle Fire HD 2012 (TATE) Only!

So you’ve rooted your Kindle Fire HD and you can’t wait to get installing loads of custom ROMs! All you need now is a custom recovery, well here’s how to get TWRP on your device easily and effeciently without bricking your device or using a computer. You can either follow the written tutorial below or watch the video. If you have any problems/question feel free to contact me.

  • Download ES File Explorer from the Amazon AppStore (Any File Manager Will Work however this is my prefered and reccomended one).

  • Enable Installisation of Applications from Unknown Sources. (Settings > Device > Allow Installation of Applications).

  • Download the these three files onto your device: FireFlash.apkKFHD7 Freedom Boot.img and either KFHD7 TWRP 2.7.0.0.img or KFHD7 TWRP 2.8.3.0.img (It doesn’t matter which one however 2.8.3.0 is obviously the latest version).

  • Install FireFlash.apk and open it up.

  • Grant the app Root Acces if necessary.

  • Under the ‘Bootloader’ heading tick the ‘Flash kfhd7-u-boot-prod-7.2.3.bin’ this is required or your device will be bricked.

  • Under ‘Boot Partition’ click ‘Not Flashed’ and find where you downloaded the files.

  • Select ‘kfhd7-freedom-boot-7.4.6.img’ (This is the correct one even though we are on a later version).

  • Still under the ‘Boot Partition’ heading tick ‘Apply Stack Overide’.

  • Under the heading ‘Recovery Partition’ once again click ‘Not Flahed’.

  • This time select the other file (‘kfhd7-twrp-2.7.0.0-recovery.img’ the number will be different depending which version of TWRP you downloaded).

  • Make sure to tick ‘Disable Recovery Auto Update’ .

  • Now at the bottom under the heading ‘Exexute’ press ‘Flash, Install Script’

  • Once this has finished (DO NOT CANCEL IT) tap ‘Reboot Into Recovery’ and wait for your device to boot into TWRP.

  • I would strongly reccomend making a backup once in TWRP.

  • Finally you can boot into TWRP from a powered off state by pressing the ‘Power Button’ as normal and then holding just the volume up button until you enter recovery.
