I am an Android noob but I'm no stranger to hacking/modding. Well anyway while trying to unlock my KFHD 8.9 2nd Gen's bootloader to install TWRP or CWM I failed. It now boots to a red screen. I've tried restoring through ADB, ADB (Fastboot), KFFA, and KF-SRT. Nothing works tried all firmware and all options. the only thing I can do is get my device to communicate in fastboot mode. Does anyone have any info they can share to help out? Please and thank you.

You need to restore the stock boot loader, go here and download the 8.1.4 stock boot loader and I can't stress enough to verify the md5sum matches the one listed, if it doesn't you could end up with a hard brick. Anyways from there its as simple as running
Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash bootloader kfhd8-u-boot-prod-8.1.4.bin

Um you did check the md5sum first right? Please make sure the device is showing up on your PC, and I would try something simple like
Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 reboot
that might get it out of fastboot loop, if not restore the system and recovery partitions again.
