Hi everybody,

bricked my device to the point that it does not boot/react at all. Screen stays black.
Wanted to usb boot the device with FireKit following the instructions here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1430038
but my pin layout is different from the picture in the instructions. Could find any more up to date infos.
Attached a picture of my board with version info .
Any help on how to usb boot (short cut) the device and replace the boot loader is appreciated.

Thanks a lot.
Bricka

Not the right kit. Can't just use whatever on your KFHD7.At best you can get a fastboot cord and see it the tablet energizes from that. If it does then you may be able to use this tool on the forums for the Soho that can restore stock. If the fastboot cord does not energize the tablet then it's a paper weight. There is no emmc pin out link there is for some of the older tablets.

Thanks for the reply. Too bad.
Used the fastboot cord before on this device for rooting.
The cable has no effect, now. The device shows no reaction.
I still wondering what that pins/label "USB boot" are for.

They are for amazon who has a signed aboot so they can actually reflash the device using the method you are talking about, unfortunately we don't have a signed aboot, so that method doesn't work.

If you wait long enough someone might have a pinout. I could attempt to figure it out myself but the kindle that goes through the process will more than likely never work again because it involves desoldering the emmc which is balled onto the PCB, unsoldering with a toaster oven is doable however resoldering it with a toaster oven is another story again. I Don!t particularly feel like mapping out points anyways, I get the feeling my test leads are too big cp for the job anyways.
