Using this kernel with AOKP
Are you using he AC adapter? Once the battery gets discharged too far the only way to get the device recharged is to use AC adapter. USB won't put out enough current to boot far enough to start charging. This is a Kindle issue not caused by this kernel.

The AC adapter puts out 1000 mV where as USB only puts out 100. If the AC adapter doesn't work then you might have a hardware issue. I would suggest leaving it plugged into AC for at least 10 mins before attempting to power it back up. If that doesn't work then you may have damaged the battery which is very unlikely.

Yeah Ive had this happen to me before. It actually happened to me the day i got the device cause iw as messing with it so much. Just plug it into the wall and make sure it is indeed not trying to turn on and walk away for an hour. That should fix it.

Agreed, although USB 2.0 can put out up to 500 mA it's just that the kindle itself can use well over that 500 mA just with the screen on lowest setting and sitting on a home screen. And usb 3.0 can put out up to 900 mA. But yes, just plug it to the OEM wall plug. Some aftermarket plugs cant produce the necessary power.

The trouble is when it is dead just plugging in the power causes it to boot before it will charge, it runs out of power and the whole thing starts over. Thats is why you need the added current available with the stock charger just to get it working again. I don't know if USB 3.0 provides enough.

You need to differentiate overheating from warm to the touch.

Find yourself a G2x, plug in a mini HDMI plug, and that my friend, is what real "overheating" is, granted you had one of the faulty g2x. It would get so hot you wouldn't be able to hold it against your face, let alone the fear that the damn battery would explode.

My KF stays plugged in to the charger and wifi connected all of the time when I am home. It's never even gotten warm to the touch. I have a battery app that also gives the temperature of the battery. Assuming it is correct the battery has never gotten any warmer than 98 degrees. This being said, I don't imagine anything on my KF has gotten more than a few degrees higher than that.

Are u running the latest version of the kernel? #7? Because my kindle has gotten very hot to the point I feared it mite cause screen damage...maybe I'll try a clean install again or going back 2 stock then flashing back to CM9 to see if that will help...
