Default Used kindle fire need help unbricking

I bought a kindle fire off of craigslist. The guy told me that it turned on but wouldn't boot. I brought it home and have spent the last two weeks working on it. I have tried kindle fire utility, kindle fire unbrick, soupkit, and firekit. None have worked. I can get the kindle in adb easily but it seems like the bootloader and system are messed up. Any attempt to add to the KF is met with no space left on device or idme permission denied. I have ran out of options and have read every page of the above mentioned programs. So my question is is there a way to wipe everything and start from scratch?

Also all I can see on boot is the orange and white kindle fire logo with animation. I am trying to just get it to boot then probably root from there.

Kindle fire utility and kindle fire unbrick do not work with the newest update 6.3.3
Likely need a fastboot cable, to force fastboot mode
