N2Aos Compatibility Checker is not working

N2Aos Compatibility Checker is not working

If 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 screen

During 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.

HBO Go, Sirius XM, Zinio Fix

HBO Go, Sirius XM, Zinio Fix (possibly others)

In order to use HBO Go, Sirius XM, and Zinio apps you will need to change the "LCD Density" in the "build.prop" file located in Android. This is easily done using the instructions found here.

My Kindle is frozen or unresponsive

My Kindle is frozen or unresponsive

If your Kindle becomes frozen or unresponsive then hold the power button down until the Kindle powers off. This usually takes 10-15 seconds. Once turned off turn it back on.

If it does not turn back on immediately then plug the USB cable into the kindle and charge for at least 30 minutes before trying again.

My Kindle keeps booting into Recovery (TWRP)

Keeps booting into Recovery (TWRP)

I you find that your Kindle keeps rebooting into Recovery mode (TWRP) you may need to "Reset Boot Mode".

To do this, turn on the Kindle and hold down the power button until the boot menu appears. Press the button until the arrows land on "Reset Boot Mode". Let go of the power button and your Kindle will automatically boot back into N2A.

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 use the Recovery Menu (TWRP)

How to use the recovery menu (TWRP)


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. Be sure the arrows are on "Recovery" before letting go of the button. If not, keep pressing the button until it lands on Recovery again. At that time, release the power button and Recovery will launch automatically.

HD 7" and 8.9": Power on, then hold the Volume Up Button for a few seconds until you first see the "Blue" Kindle Fire bootup screen. Recovery will launch automatically.


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.

- DO NOT DO THIS ---> Factory Reset, System, Internal Storage, and Format Data will wipe N2A and make your Kindle useless. (universal fix coming someday)

Mount
- This will mount the internal storage so you can copy/paste files using Explorer or Finder. You can also use the ADB push command at anytime without pressing mount.

Settings
- completely useless for most users, and you can set the time zone for recovery mode.

Advanced
- Do not use the Partition SD Card. If you do you will have to reinstall N2A.
- Fix Permissions is popular if everything is force closing in Android.

Reboot
- System is a normal reboot
- Bootloader is fastboot mode (gen1 only)
- Recovery will boot back into recovery (gen1 only)
