I think I flashed the wrong recovery (otter). Prior to doing so I had wiped /system. Now I'm stuck at the kindle fire logo with no apparent way to boot to anything functional.

On both linux and windows 'adb devices' shows the device is offline and the serial is 01234567890ABCDEF.

On both linux and windows 'fastboot devices' show no device.

I've tried using Kindle Fire Utility v.0.9.9 but since neither adb nor fastboot work it doesn't help

I've tried using Kindle Unbrick Utility v1.1 but it too fails to help in this case.

Is there any hope of recovering this device?

Thanks,

Thank you very much for the offer Josh. I was able to recover using a fastboot cable.

Initially I thought it did not work since I saw no difference on the screen and the command
Code:
fastboot devices
did not show any device. But I tried running
Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 devices
and there it was. From there I booted into TWRP
Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 boot openrecovery-twrp-2.7.0.1-blaze.img'
and installed CM11 M5.

Thanks again,
