is it bricked? can someone point me towards the right direction if they been through this. apologies if someone else have asked the same question but i have done my research and didn't find that same problem i have.
Right, I've received a Kindle Fire 2 for Christmas as a gift from the US (I live in The Netherlands), and by accident I managed to wreck it.
It worked perfectly for a while, but I hate the Amazon fork of Android, so I looked into getting Jelly Bean on it. I successfully rooted my device on 10.2.4, installed the Play Store, and then I decided I wanted more. I found a guide to flashing FFF + TWRP for Kindle Fire, unknowingly I didn't realize that that guide was for the original Kindle Fire, and _not_ for the Kindle Fire 2. This resulted in me messing up the partition layout of my KF2.
It doesn't turn on anymore, no matter how long I keep the power button pressed, the screen won't turn on and the power button doesn't light up either. Hooking it up to my computer running Windows 7 doesn't help either, adb can't find it, neither can fastboot. I bought a factory cable from SkOrPn to try to fix it, hooked it up to my computer again, still no response. Might be a driver issue on Windows though. I tried an Ubuntu live-cd with FireKit, and tried to boot my Kindle into fastboot, with the cable, no result.
I tried contacting Amazon myself, but they don't have a call centre over here, so I can't call for a replacement. I had a conversation with an Amazon employee in the US who told me I have to give the address of the person who gifted it to me, so they can ship a free replacement there. That would mean that person would have to ship it themselves my way, and that's not something I'd like to happen.
Basically, I'd like to solve it myself, but I'm unsure how to do that. Help?
Yeah I know. As I've said earlier (in that quoted piece of text), I contacted Amazon, but they said I can get a replacement shipped to the person who gifted it to me in the US (over here in The Netherlands we don't have Amazon, and therefore no helpdesk lines), meaning the device would have to be shipped from there to here. And I don't want to put that person in that situation to be honest.
