Next since I assume that my kindle is in fastboot mode, I tried issuing the command "fastboot getvar product" at the command prompt. However I don't get a response like the guide says....I only get "waiting for device". Question #2 did I do something wrong?
When the kindle boots with a standard cable. I get to the logo screen and the image is white and yellow. I assume that this means the bootloader is stock and not the FFF....... if this is the case, I figured that debug mode is on since I read it should be by default. Therefore I tried to use the kfu utility to communicate with my device. both with an original cable, and a fastboot cable I purchased off ebay. In the KFU, If I select option to fastboot. I get the "Opps something went wrong" as the device is not detected.
Any help and/Guidence will be greatly appreciated.
