Default [Solved] Kindle stuck in fastboot mode

I have a problem. I rooted my Kindle fire (6.2.2) with BurritoRoot 2 and then tried to use Kindle fire Utility 0.9.2 to install TWRP and FireFireFire on my device. Everything was going fine until it told my kindle to go into fastboot and now its stuck in there. ive tried adding new vendor IDs, fastboot bootmode 4000, draining out the battery, uninstalling the drivers, rebooting my computer, everything. Can someone please help before I decide to use up my warranty?
Using Windows XP 32-bit

The exact same thing happened to me on the first try. Different drivers are needed when using KFU than when just using ADB. Run the install drivers batch file provided with KFU and run the commands listed above. That should get it out of bootloop.

I tried that, but it failed, saying the drivers were unsigned :/

Follow these steps to set driver verification levels:

1.Press [Windows]Break to display the System Properties dialog box.
2.Select the Hardware tab and click the Driver Signing button in the Drivers panel.
3.Select the Block-Never Install Unsigned Driver Software button. (Verify that the Make This Action The System Default check box is selected.)
4.Click OK twice.

did you do it with install_drivers.bat or did you update it manually ?
have you put kfu to c:\ and renamed to "kfu" that it is c:\kfu ? - it don't like spaces in pathname
are you on an english xp ? - since the xml of the driver installer has to be edited

in fastboot mode it should be "android adb interface" under "android phone"
