Default [Q] did I brick my kindle? :(

I have a rooted kfhd and I accidently removed SystemUI.apk. I can power on the kindle and it will take me to lock screen...after i unlock i get black screen. I tryed to push SystemUI.apk back with adb but it failes. "failed to copy 'SystemUI.apk' to 'system/app/SystemUI.apk' : Read only file system".
Can i unbrick my kindle without factory cable?
And if so can someone tell me how
Thank you

Yes, you need a fastboot cord now to flash the original firmware. You can get one on Ebay or buy a tip here http://shop.teamblackhat.info/Factor...s-motadapt.htm or make your own with instructions located here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2207122

Use this tool http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1951254

Now you want to do is make sure to download SDK so you can use ADB and fastboot commands. Here is a video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaNM-lt_aHw

Should the drivers be a little outdated, Stunts has some good ones here that have helped many http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2477379

Good Luck

Actually if you don't mind putting some time in you could fix without reflashing it, you need to mount /system as read/write and push systemui.apk to the sdcard, the cp it to /system/app, then chmod its permissions and it would fix the problem.

^^ his method is way easier though.

Please Read the instructions and use the debugger if you run into errors.
My own modified adb drivers for just about all kindles (includes old twrp and cm versions) HERE

As long as you already had adb enabled you don't need a fastboot cable, just run
Code:
su -c "reboot bootloader"
and it should go into fastboot where you can reflash it.
