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, and only releasing the volume down button when the white Amazon logo appears.

Installation

For flashing, pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs works, but for some reason pmbootstrap flasher flash_kernel does not. However, pmbootstrap export allows you to fastboot flash boot /path/to/boot.img-amazon-soho, which works fine.

Sideloading a recovery zip in TWRP also should work.
