Doesn't sound hard bricked, I would hook it up to a fastboot cable to see if it will enter fastboot mode, though the bootloader seems to be acting odd(unless it's a low battery but I think it would flash a low battery symbol on the screen instead of kindle fire).

yeah it has power as it will do the same when unplugged. So to make a fast boot cable solder 1 to four is that right?

Yes that's pretty much all there is to it, though the cable has to kinda have the contact point for what I think is pin 4, because its not usually used so not all cables have a contact point for it on the little PCB.

That's not what pin 4 is, pin 4 has no wire coming from it, there's a guide that tells about this around here somewhere, look in this thread for a link at Q20. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2228539
