Question 8.9 HDx unit stuck on KINDLE FIRE startup white screen

I hope someone can help me.
Tablet down...lol

Ok so I got a KF fire 8.9 HDX a week ago.
It was came with 14.3.5 (trying to remember)

ADB did work and was setup properly, no issues there (Windows 7)
I could not root it with any of the tools posted.
I noticed that all the tools seemed to work with 14.3.10.
I manually updated it to 14.3.10
I was able to root it.
I did install Safestrap
I was trying to flash a 2nd ROM and I guess I did something wrong.
I did do a restore to Rom2 from my backup. I also did that for ROM 1 to make sure I could reboot the unit.

Now the problems:
1. I am stuck on the Kindle Fire screen (the first screen just the white Kindle Fire logo). I can reboot into the stock restore/recovery.
2. I did wipe and picked option 2 to restore
3. Nothing happens on reboot, it just sits back on the white Kindle Fire logo

I suspect that the bootloader on this unit was blocking fastboot therefore I could not finish the proper setup with the tools here to install 2nd boot loader TWRP.

Can someone please assist.
Thanks

You didn't feel as though one thread started was enough to help you or or the 10 other brick threads that have no real answers .. There is no fix for you at least currently besides calling Amazon and having them send you another tab good luck and do your homework
