Cool [Q] Kindle bricked - stuck on yellow triangle recovery screen

Hello,

I've been working on a KF that was previously rooted - and now will only boot to this screen:
Attached - BootScreen

I was able to previously access TWRP, but now after trying to wipe the kindle, it will no longer boot to that.

When accessing the KF via a fastboot cable, this is how the device is recognized:
Attached - Driver

Running options in KFU, I receive:
Attached - KFU

I've had the most luck with the "KINDLE FIRE HD System.img Recovery Tool"
Attached - SystemImage
It allows me to remotely reboot my kindle, and says that it successfully writes a new image on the device(downloaded a fresh blank one) but the KF will boot to the yellow triangle screen every time thereafter regardless.

Any other suggestions on what I could do?

Safin,

Thank-you for your reply. Were you suggesting typing that snippet into the KFU console?

Did you use option 3 to restore the factory recovery? That should fix your issue. This is a Kindle fire HD right? Not a Kindle fire 2.

My model is D01400.

Option 3 confirmed that it worked, but upon rebooting the Kindle it still goes to the yellow triangle screen.

You have an original Kindle Fire 8GB. Don't use any utility unless for a Kindle Fire or you will hard brick your tablet.
