    I realize this is a rookie question but I’m stumped on getting my Kindle Fire 1st gen into recovery mode. I’m reading things about boot loaders, FireFireFire, etc. but everything is so cryptic it’s difficult to figure it out. Any help would be great.

      Okay, got passed that part. I just needed to reinstall the drivers for KFU. Now I’m stuck at the point where I need to install a ROM. Every walkthrough I’ve found talks about using an SD card. It’s funny how I’m not finding an SD card slot on my Kindle Fire. Are you? j/k I have a ROM ready on my computer I just need to somehow deliver it to the Kindle Fire. Any help would be great, again. : )

    Okay, got passed that part. I can understand that I had some trouble with my drivers and that was probably user error. I’m just trying to figure out why these instructions dont’ mention that the recovery mode has a mount SD Card function which will turn the Kindle Fire into a drive on the computer. That would be an important step to include. Otherwise, these are probably the best instructions out there. Thank you. JB4.2.2 is now working great. : )
