Ive rooted a few phones and tablets before and have never bricked a device (got close) until now. This kindle fire i believe is truly hard bricked. What happened was, I rooted it with the kindle fire utility, and when it rebooted it was stuck on the kindle fire logo screen. I let it run flat over night, and the next day it was still stuck. So i downloaded kindle unbrick utility to attempt to fix this and then it was in a bootloop and it is now in a hard brick state. power button is non responsive, unless charging, it will turn green then immediately to orange and stay that way. I like to think that nothing is unrecoverable, and im very determined to get this thing back up and running, even if it means taking the case off and flashing it with probes lol.. Ive been working on it for about a week now and I seem to have made things worse. So I'm hoping there's a genius out there that can help me bring life back into this thing.

Should just contact Amazon and claim it "died". Might be your best hope.

I can assure you that it is not going to start working by leaving it running.

If you have a factory cable(this is not the one that came with device, Google kindle fire factory cable), you should be able to boot into fastboot. Then it is possible to restore the system partition with a backup of a system.img. Check out the - Backup and Restore System Software in the general section. Not sure if a backup from a different kindle will work but it might be worth a shot. I have posted a a link for system.img backup here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1944718. This was from a KFHD. I hope it helps some people get their devices working.
