That's ubuntu right? Fire up nautilus (that's your file browser if you are unaware {not trying to be a smartass just want to be clear}) and navigate to said file; right click it and check the permissions, it might not be enabled as executable.

Because usbboot is a Linux x86 binary. Firekit + Ubuntu LiveCD is your ticket out of brick hell.

FYI the USB and UART recovery protocols are the same, just different transports. But you'd need a different 1st stage loader that talks UART, which we don't have. So might as well use usbboot + aboot.

Oh, and don't try the 6.2.1 rootboot, you're better off loading the TWRP installer. Just use the usb_install_fff_twrp script in Firekit. If it still doesn't work, try usb_fix_parts_and_install_fff_twrp

Thank you so much. Just like you said I booted in to linux and shorted out + usbboot + aboot and u_boot.bin. Then flashed stock 6.2.2 from recovery to be safe. I am pretty sure I am back in business.Now to root, after a charge of corse.

It seems to work fine. I think I discovered what happened too. I think the battery died in the middle of flashing the bootloader because it was completely dead when I got it back up and running.

Thanks again everyone for the help.

Yeah it was crazy sketchy. I guess my laptop was not charging my Kindle white I was working on it. So right in the middle of flashing the bootloader it died. special thanks to pokey9000. With nothing but a black screen I thought there was no coming back.
