Flash Recovery and Bootloader Without Fastboot for Kindle Fire

As development for a popular device goes on, eventually users and developers will find new ways of performing already available tasks. Features of these new ways generally include features such as being easier to use, so the less tech savvy crowd can get in on the modding action and adding new options that are just really cool. Such is the case with a method posted by XDA Senior Member smirkis, which allows users of the Amazon Kindle Fire to install a custom recovery and a custom bootloader without using fastboot.

There are already methods that help users install a custom recovery and a custom bootloader. However, what sets this method apart is that it gives the user an option to choose which recovery and bootloader they install on the fly. And for users who have had enough with modifying their devices, there’s an option to return to stock bootloader and recovery. The full options include:

install clockworkmod touch
install firefirefire bootloader
Install new cwmtouch final by doomlord
Install new logo fff bootloader by kinfaun

The application comes in the form of an apk that users can install. From there, it’s just loading the scripts to install whichever bootloader and recovery you want and hitting go. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

You can find all the information, download links, and installation instructions you’ll need in the original thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
