Question [Q] kindle fire 8.9" Nov. release start up pin 3 reset or work around hack

My friend found a new kindle fire 8.9" HDX on the road side is there a way to get into it to find the owner or reset the start up pin lock to access is there a reward for turning in a found unit ? I know there is one troubled person out there who lost it and would most likely be surprised to get it back any suggestions would be greatly appreciated at the losers end .

Well since you didn't ad hdx to end I can say if it's an HD you could wipe the user data from fastboot, I believe that would fix the password issue, at least from there you could actually obtain the serial number and such to report see about amazon looking into it. If it's an hdx though I think that function is disabled in fastboot, maybe if adb is on, the device would report its serial number as the device Id in adb devices.
