N2Aos Compatibility Checker is not working
N2Aos Compatibility Checker is not workingIf you find the N2Aos Compatibility Checker is not working for you then you will need to try the following... 1. The checker will only work in "Kindle mode", it will not work on Kindles already converted. 2. Verify that ADB is enabled in the security settings if you have a Gen 2, HD7", or HD8.9" Kindle Fire 3. Make sure your USB connection is stable. If you shake the cable and you hear the computer losing the connection then it is not stable. Switch cables and/or computers. 4. Try a different computer if you have one, it's always the easiest solution. 5. Open device manager and right-click and uninstall the "Kindle" or "ADB" drivers, check the box to remove the software as well. Also see Remove Drivers 6. Reboot computer and Kindle and re-run the compatibility checker
My Kindle is stuck on the boot screen
My Kindle is stuck on the Kindle Fire screenDuring installation if you find that your Kindle is stuck at the boot screen, or fastboot, then you may need to reboot the computer and kindle and start again. If you cannot get the Kindle back into regular mode to start again, then use our Compatibility Checker located on our homepage to "kick" the kindle out of fastboot mode. You can find the checker at our homepage. You may also need to remove music or video from your Kindle if the internal drive is completely full. N2A needs at least 500MB free to copy the installation to the Kindle Fire. Performing a factory reset on the Kindle first will also free up enough room for installation.

How to enter the Recovery menu (TWRP): Gen1 & Gen2: Power on, then hold the Power Button down for a few seconds until a boot menu appears.

Below are the recovery options you will see: Install - Install allows you to manually install custom roms like N2Aos. N2Aos is a custom rom based on Cyanogenmod. There are other roms out there that can be installed instead of N2Aos. These other roms will overwrite N2Aos but we do not recommend doing it, obviously. They can also "brick" your Kindle, meaning it is beyond repair. Make sure you know what you are doing or are willing to sacrifice for the challenge. Expensive sacrifice, you have been warned. Backup - This allows you to make a backup of your N2Aos along with apps and settings. It is basically an exact image of your device at that time. The backup is saved to the internal memory and can be accessed easily for archiving on a computer. Restore - This allows you to restore from backups that you create. Wipe - The wipe buttons allow you erase different things. - Cache and Dalvik Cache can sometimes fix errors with apps and Android in general. This is the second most common fix right after "clear data" inside App Management.
