I'm in exactly the same boat as you, also flashed FFF (by accident) on my device. Haven't been able to fix it yet but I do have a factory cable. Also did the USB trick, but that didn't have an effect either.

If you connect the Kindle to the PC and try adb devices in a terminal window, what do you see?

From the software version, you have KF2, as such you need to use the tools and ROMs from the KF2 threads. You could try to use the one click freedom boot and TWRP installer, to see if you can get that on.

From there you would probably have to push one of the 10.1 ROMs on, or the 10.2.6 recovery image, and then start again.

This seems to be happening a lot, and could be avoided if people read a bit more before using the wrong tools.

In my case, I did by accident because it wasn't clear to me which KF generation I had (I've bricked mine just after christmas). These forums were not really clear either, I had a Kindle Fire so I just looked for a KF guide. After I bricked it I found out my device was a second generation Kindle Fire.

Hi, to clarify: you cannot boot into TWRP? No logos at boot at all? No boot?

I would send it back to Amazon...

Nothing whatsoever.
I can't really send it back to Amazon, because of two reasons:
1) I already opened up the back
2) It was gifted to me from the US, and there is no Dutch Amazon, so I'd have to send the device back to the person who gifted to me, that person has to mail it to Amazon from there, and the replacement device has to come back the same way (via that person). That's not a situation I'd like to put that person in.

I am sure they can figure it out. Can you boot into TWRP?

If so, you can still recover...

Not yet I'm afraid. Everything I tried so far hasn't worked.
