Default [Q] I screwed up. Bad.

The summary of what happened is as follows.
I have the HDX 7 and it auto updated to 13.3.2.3.2, so I modified the build.prop to spoof it as being 13.3.0.9
I had done this successfully before (OTA update was NOT stopped by hdxposed) so I was feeling super confident
Here's where I made my mistake though
I forgot to reset my permissions
So, once I rebooted, it obviously didn't work.
In a panic, I tried to factory reset. I should have guessed it wouldn't touch /system .
Now, I personally can't think of any way I could possibly fix this device, but maybe someone here has some wizard magic I could use, I've honestly all but given up hope.
I can still see the low battery icon if it's low and I try to boot it, and I can still get into Amazon's extremely limited bootloader (your kindle could not boot, reboot, factory reset) but other than that I don't think I can do much with it.
Please, if anyone has any suggestions... ;-;

Pretty sure there's not a fix based on all the other threads where people have done the same thing.

Reboot into fastboot and try to flash amazon's stock firmware.

Would this work?
amazon/gp/product/B0099E59SG (sorry, can't submit URL due to being a new user)
If I can actually boot into fastboot and have it work properly, I would be able to flash a .bin to it? I'm sorry for being so ignorant about the subject.

You may be able to flash a .bin if you can get into fastboot mode, but from what I understand, there is no hardware button combo that will get you into fastboot mode unless you have an unlocked bootloader. If you have any sort of adb when it tries to boot, then adb reboot-bootloader may put you in the right place, but if not, then I'm not sure there is much to be done.

I would check out this thread to get some more info on the state of fastboot.

good luck!

Hmm, unless I can get some confirmation on that fastboot cable, I don't think I have much hope it seems ._.
The only current way to access fastboot mode is via adb, correct?

Hi! You can use the Wugfresh's nexus 7 tool, it will let you go into fastboot but as far as I know you cant flash .bin may be I'm wrong but you can try...

Does this actually do anything special or is it just an adb/fastboot GUI? Because I'm currently in Linux and installing windows is a /huge/ pain and I'm sure messing with it in WINE would just make things worse... Though if it does actually do something special I would be more than willing to do it for that.
