Current and past versions of TWRP can be found at one of the mirrors below:

TWRP Install (Requires TWRP 2.8.4 or higher already installed):

Download the latest TWRP image file (.img) from the download link and boot TWRP. Go to install and find and select the Images... button. Browse to the image that you downloaded and select it. Choose recovery and swipe to flash.

Fastboot Install Method (Root Required, No Fastboot Cable Required):

WARNING: this method isn't supported

Follow the instructions for using a fastboot cable but after enabling ADB run:

adb shell su -c "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/boot bs=1 count=1 seek=848"

Fastboot Install Method (No Root Required, Fastboot Cable Required):

You will need the platform-tools from the Android SDK on your computer. Find the SDK Only section on the page linked and install the SDK and download only the platform-tools to get adb and fastboot binaries.

Windows users will need proper drivers installed on your computer. You can try the Naked ADB drivers or the Universal ADB drivers if you don't already have a working driver installed

On your device, go into Settings -> Device Options and find the Serial Number and tap on it 7 times to enable developer settings. Go into Developer Options and enable ADB. From your computer, open a command prompt and type:

adb reboot bootloader

Download the latest software update and rename it to 'update.bin' in the same folder as your adb and fastboot binaries

You should now be in fastboot mode. Download the correct exploit file and unzip the file into the same folder as your adb and fastboot binaries. Then run:

fastboot -i 0x1949 oem format
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash boot hijack.img
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash system system.img
fastboot -i 0x1949 continue

You should now see an Amazon logo with an orange underline. Now run:

fastboot -i 0x1949 flash boot recovery.img
fastboot -i 0x1949 oem format
fastboot -i 0x1949 continue

You should now see TWRP load up. Run:

adb shell twrp wipe cache
adb shell twrp wipe dalvik
adb shell twrp sideload

You should now be in sideload mode. Now run:

adb sideload update.bin
adb reboot
adb wait-for-device
adb shell su -c 'mount -o remount,rw /system && rm /system/etc/install-recovery.sh && mount -o remount,ro /system'
adb push recovery.img /sdcard/recovery.img
adb shell su -c "dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/omap\_hsmmc.1/by-name/recovery"
adb push exploit.img /sdcard/exploit.img
adb shell su -c "dd if=/sdcard/exploit.img of=/dev/block/platform/omap\_hsmmc.1/by-name/exploit"
adb shell rm /sdcard/recovery.img /sdcard/exploit.img

TWRP can now be accessed holding the volume down button when powering on the device
