[Q] Fastboot looped Kindle, unresponsive to fastboot commands
After trying for the past two days and a lot of hours to get a good enough grasp to undo a hasty attempt at rooting my kindle, I've decided to come to you with a request for help!
It all started when I installed the amazon usb drivers for kindle fire and then loaded up KFU. It read that my kindle was in boot mode 4000 (normal boot mode) and I told it to root my device. It seemed to be working fine, until all the sudden, it froze as it was trying to load TWRP onto my kindle. AFter waiting some amount of time, I finally just cancelled the job and tried to reset my kindle.
Ever since my kindle is stuck at the stock loading screen. No FFF, just the regular kindle fire logo and it never dims in light, which is a clear indication that it is in fastboot, and isn't going anywhere. Well at that point, my windows drivers failed me and ceased to recognize my kindle. Well, I tried everything to get windows to recognize the device but it failed. I even tried creating a bootable ubuntu partition and using the linux drivers with firekit. It didn't really work as well as I'd have liked.
Recently, I used my roommate's macbook and fastboot to try and see if there was any hope for communicating with my kindle.
The "./fastboot -i 0x1949 getvar products" command returned "product:kindle" suggesting that the macbook recognized my kindle.
but when i tried to reset the bootmode to 4000, it just sat there with three dots and did nothing. i tried to flash TWRP again, same thing. Each time i would cancel the job and then when i went back to try and recognize my kindle, even the macbook had lost it.
