Default [Q] Kindle fire HD 7" not recognised as an MTP device anymore

I have a Kinde fire HD 7" that I rooted for a neighbours son which he managed to brick within 20 Mins of getting it back, I think the battery died on him when he was installing something. Now when I plug the Kindle into my system which runs Linux I get the following in the logs.

This repeats ad infinitum, well at least 30 times I unplugged it after that.

My question is this, will I be able to to restore the Kindle using the Factory cable from SkOrPn or is this a case where I need to send it back to Amazon ??

Any help would be much appreciated.

Is the device still able to comunicate with ADB? If it can then you do not need a fastboot cable. If it does not then yes you will need one to restore it..

No ADB never sees the device any more as the USB just keeps reconnecting and disconnecting. The same thing happens in windows where I keep getting the sound when you connect a usb device over and over again and windows looks for a device driver for an OMAP4440, which I believe is the CPU in the Kindle.

So I need to know that in a situation like this that the Factory cable would actually help, I'm sure I read somewhere that fastboot mode needs a working bootloader and I'm not sure that this kindles bootloader is still there.

Thanks

Yea it doesn't sound like it's in working order, so yes, a fastboot cable would be need to get the device back in action..

No I'm afraid not. If your device is being recognised as an OMAP4440 then your out of luck as there are no drivers for this yet. I had to send my device back to Amazon who replaced it no questions asked.

A good thread to check is http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2096888 post a few details of your problem on that thread and you will get a helpful response.

Good luck
