It would be helpful if you provided a recap of what this is, what it does and why you might want to do it.

Having the instructions is fine, but a lot of people will see this and think they need it, when they really don't know what they are doing. Including ALL the info to accomplish this might reduce the number of questions.

o What should be done before attempting this (backups, copies of data, commands that should be run/captured)
o Where to get the Fastboot command
o MD5sum of the image file to validate you have the right one.
o Ramifications of doing this (effects OTA's from Amazon??), allows you to make system level backups etc...

I just did this... First I made sure I had fastboot.exe (I didn't). Then I downloaded the img file and checked the MD5...

Then, I did the following commands (shows what was echo'ed back by the system)

Code:
<br />
C:\DEV\SDK\tools>adb shell<br />
$ su<br />
su<br />
# idme bootmode 4002<br />
idme bootmode 4002<br />
<idme> write 4002 to offset 0x1000<br />
# exit<br />
exit<br />
$ exit<br />
exit<br />
C:\DEV\SDK\tools>fastboot -i 0x1949 boot twrp-blaze-2.0.0RC0.img<br />
< waiting for device ><br />
I had to then reload the Device Driver before it moved on....

Code:
<br />
		downloading 'boot.img'... OKAY [  3.053s]<br />
					   booting... OKAY [  0.013s]<br />
finished. total time: 3.085s<br />
When the screen had the reboot button on it, I did:
Code:
<br />
C:\DEV\SDK\tools>adb shell<br />
~ # idme bootmode 4000<br />
idme bootmode 4000<br />
<idme> write 4000 to offset 0x1000<br />
~ # reboot<br />
reboot<br />
And it rebooted.

Just did a backup... something I've wanted to do from the very beginning...
