I attempted to install Cyanogenmod on my Tate, according to the directions in the Wiki.

https://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_tate

At Step 3, number 5 (fastboot -i 0x1949 oem recovery), the kindle does not boot to recovery, but just shows the logo, and then goes back to Fastboot, even with a non-fastboot cable.

If I restart without a cable attached, I get a boot loop (even when I hold down the volume button, as described).

Perhaps this is relevant: before I started all of this, my Tate was already rooted. Was it stupid to apply the exploit in that case? I only realized this later. If so, is there any way out?

BTW, I'm on Linux, have a working adb and a fastboot cable.

Thanks!

    Nothing related to rooting ought to affect recovery or the bootloader. Sounds like you might need to re-flash the recovery. Apr 28, 2016 at 23:47

    Got it! I did re-flash the recovery, and that seemed to take care of it. Before that, I also went fastboot -i 0x1949 oem idme bootmode 4000 However, that took a while but then said it failed, so maybe just re-flashing the recovery by itself was what did it. Apr 29, 2016 at 0:34

Got it!

I did re-flash the recovery, and that seemed to take care of it.

Before that, I also went

fastboot -i 0x1949 oem idme bootmode 4000

However, that took a while but then said it failed, so maybe just re-flashing the recovery by itself was what did it.
