How to enter flash mode

To get into fastboot mode, a fastboot/factory cable is required. Connect the cable to the (powered off) device first, and then connect it to your computer. The device will then boot into fastboot mode.

You will most likely need one of these cables to install TWRP.

To boot into TWRP once installed, press the volume down button and the power button at the same time, releasing the power button when the 'Kindle Fire' logo appears, but keep the volume down button pressed until TWRP appears.
