I know this is going to sound harsh but please do read more before attempting something like this.

A quick glance of the threads on here will have made you quickly realise that flashing anything on the HDX is not possible at this time.

Threads like this do scare me. If you're not sure, don't do. Simple.

Everyone needs to stop using the term "brick". It is 99% likely not a brick. Bootloop is not a brick. Stuck at boot screen is not a brick. QHSUSB_BULK mode is not a brick. They are just symptoms of something you did incorrectly & they are usually fixable with a little patience & common sense.

Well maybe I'll phrase it better: how did you screw up your Kindle?

LMFAO...

Yeah, I know. But if you put bootloop there in the title, then I get a billion daily PM's asking if they have a bootloop or brick, so I include both words in the title. You would think with all the warnings, I wouldn't be getting so many "ooops" emails, yet there they are, every morning.
