You tried reflashing the bootloader? If you haven't then try that, but please remember to verify the bootloaders md5sum before flashing it or your kindle could end up worse off(it wouldn't power on).

I'm going to throw my kindle.... I just typed a very lengthy description and then a stupid tapatalk notification came up right next to the post button as I was hitting it and cleared my entire post... Anyways i thought at first that was a signature but if this kindle is indeed a 2013 model then your first problem was attempting to isntall 2nd bootloader and a custom rom, becuase thats not possible on the 2013 model, also would explain why srt and kffa wouldnt work, their images are incompatible, so before i post any further instructions, please tell me whether i am correct because if its a 2013 model i think i can help you fix it thanks to someone posting the images recently but you are going to have to manually fix this, not too difficult.

Someone just posted the images today if I remember correctly, think he was going to verify their md5sum or something first so I might wait. This is the thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2650596

I would wait till they confirm they are all good before using them but I doubt it would make the device any worse since it isn't flashing the bootloader or anything, just the boot and system partitions mainly. I might modify the SRT script to use the new images and post my own SRT to help out. I'm in the midsts of debugging a ROM I'm working in so I'll only do it if I have some time free( like when I have questions to ask and there's no devs available to question). Might even tweak his script a bit, not sure how it works but I may add a md5sum checker to double check that the images didn't corrupt if it doesn't have one in it, I know nothing is more annoying than flashing your device back and getting a error from fastboot about size mismatch or something.

Something like putting it in fastboot and open a command prompt, now here's to hoping you have basic command line experience. I would recommend putting the images you downloaded into for instance the same folded as the fastboot command in SRT, or if you have another fastboot command that is fine as well. Idk if SRT defaultly put its images in the same folder as fastboot, but if it did feel free to deleted them to avoid confusion. Anyways for the commands, CD into the directory containing the fastboot commands that you placed your images in. Now I believe this is what you want to run:
Code:
fastboot -i 0x1949 flash boot stock-boot.IMG
Fastboot -i 0x1949 flash system stock-system.IMG
Fastboot -i 0x1949 flash recovery stock-recovery.IMG
Note that I am not positive on the file names but if it was incorrect just change the name in the command of the IMG file as it needs be. Wouldn't recommend flashing the bootloader unless you have to, bad bootloader flashes result in hard bricks so I avoid flashing it unless absolutely necessary, and also note boot is not bootloader, boot is the kernel+intramfs. Also don't flash the boot0block image at all. That contains that persons serial number, Mac address and other info, idk why he put it in there, its kinda personal.
