Yes. Try that.
EDIT: Wait. It'll probably say permission denied or some other lame error, so add
mount -o rw,remount /data
After the cache remount then change everything that references "/sdcard/" to "/data/media/0/".

That didn't work either. I keep getting the same result. I don't get errors using the sdcard directory though either, but I also tried with data/media/0. No errors, just doesn't work for me.

Exclamation so do i.

adb push "bin" to sdcard can work,but after reboot recovery,
only show on screen like this:

Kindle Fire System Recovery
Your Kindle doesn't seem to be able to boot.
Reseting your device to Factory defaults may
help you to fix this issue.

Volume up/down to move highlight;
power button to select.
------------------------------------
Reboot your Kindle
Reset to Factory Defaults

I tried a different approach.

adb shell
su
adb remount
mkdir "/data/media/0/Updates
exit
exit
adb push C:\update-kindle-13.3.2.4_user_324002120.bin "/data/media/0/Updates/update-kindle-13.3.2.4_user_324002120.bin

Not really. Not nearly as useful as the KFHD's. No useful commands work.

And did this help you unbrick your device?

Default Unbrick my Kindle :)

Sorry to interrupt, but my kindle fire HDX 7" is also bricked, I can not get past the gray "Kindle Fire" screen, I can get into fastboot. My device is not detected in ADB. Is there any hope for my kindle or is it dead?
