Well I would definitely try... but there's now a new issue. Kindle will not go on. At all. Completely shut down. It just gave up. I can't power it on at all. I know there's no coming back from that. I'm going to see if Amazon will replace it. Unless you know of another idea to get this working. I'm pretty sure I lost this baby though.

Thank you for being committed in helping me out. I guess something was just wrong that we couldn't control and it just crapped out. RIP Kindle Fire HD. And all of this started because of that stupid update I got for CyanogenMod! Err!

You sure the battery didn't just die? I mean without you flashing anything chances are the battery is just dead.

Yup. Was on 80% juice last I used it and left it on the charger overnight. It crapped out. Amazon said they will send a new one though for free to replace this one. They said I am guaranteed to get it by the 27th. When I get the new one, would you like to walk me through it if I end up with an issue again? You've been a huge help.

Never mind, we're all good. New Kindle rooted and flashed perfectly. Only took 10 minutes before I had the Kit-Kat mod on it. My old one must have just been messed up somehow. It took some work, but I went now from CM9 to CM11. I created a backup after installing all my main apps and choosing my settings, so if I ever have to flash-fix the Kindle again, I'll just boot back to the CM11 with all my pre-installed apps.
