Default Kindle Fire rooting help

Hi all,

Earlier yesterday i carried out the rooting procedure that was outlined on Liliputing using the kindle fire utility, the kindle was shown as online, the rooting procedure went without a hitch, i then went to the extras section and installed google play.

I then unplugged the device from my computer and restarted it as described. When it restarts i am faced with a screen with a few options like, reboot, wipe, install and a few more but i cant seem to get any further past this and use my kindle. The kindle logo is still shown on start up but the fire is now written in blue.

Please can somebody help me!!!! I am new to all this and am worried i may have destroyed my kindle.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What happened when you select "reboot", does it bring up the same thing? I'm not familiar with the rooting method, but sounds like it flashed a custom recovery also, which would be fine. What options have you tried to get it to boot into Android after this appears, if any?
