Default Bricked my 8.9 - Wallpaper fix DNW!

Welp, it happened. I bricked it. Tried to install the wallpaper fix via adb one click. nope. it doesn't work. don't try it.

Side note.

Apps I did get to work..kind of
-Maps (won't sign in and slow)
-Hangouts (won't do video. Resets device)
-Gmail (works great)
-Play Music (works great-didn't try to sign in though)

Not Working
-Google+ (constantly FCing)
-PlayStore (we already knew this)

Amazon will give you a replacement. 1 year warranty for anything that may happen to the device(aside from damage of any kind). Ill have it on Friday. Whew.

On a new note: you do not have to replace the device. This will eventually lead to Amazon changing their policies, or raising prices.

All you have to do is open the script you were using, find what changes it was making & use adb to undo those changes. Bootloop is not a brick. QHSUSB_BULK is not a brick. They are only symptoms of something amiss & usually easily remedied.

I tried using the program to undo but it does not recognize adb. Without adb I wasn't doing anything. Tried on two different PC's.

I just recently acquired a HDX 8.9 and I followed basically the same steps as you did. As soon as my HDX rebooted after the "wallpaper fix" I get a black screen. I can see the that tablet is on, the black screen is illuminated and the good news is can send commands via ADB. Anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve this?

I was trying to get all the ground work in places so i can install CM as soon as a solution is available. OOPS
