How to Install ROM on Rooted Kindle Fire!

So, you want to install a new ROM on your newly rooted Kindle Fire and de-virginize it?

Well, it’s pretty easy to do. ┬áBut before we begin, make sure you’ve make a backup of your rooted stock ROM.

Step 1. Download the ROM zip file you want to install and copy over to the internal storage of your Kindle Fire.

Then power off your Kindle Fire and reboot into TWRP Recovery by holding down Power button until it turns orange.

Step 2. Once in TWRP Recovery, choose “Wipe”.

Step 3. Next choose “Factory Reset”.

Step 4. When that’s done, hit the Home button (at the upper-right corner) to go back to main menu.

Step 5. Hit “Install”.

Step 6. Next, find the ROM zip file you copied over earlier and choose it.

Step 7. Verify that the ROM zip file name is the one you want to install and hit “Flash”.

Step 8. Hit “Reboot System” and enjoy your new ROM.

    Hey Zedomax,
    I am able to do all the steps but when I reboot the Kindle it takes me bacl to the TWRP page with the Install, Backup, Restore, Wipe, Mount, Settings, Advance and Reboot tabs. It gets to the yellow Fire icon but then takes me back to the above page. What am I doing wrong? Now I cannot get the Kindle to start. I connected it to the computer to do the update and Device Manager will not recognize the Kindle. Help!!!!
