Default [Q] Kindle 2013 3rd Gen. KFSOWI bricked

Hello,
I think I just bricked my Kindle Fire HD 2013 KFSOWI running 11.3.2.1.

Here's what I did
- solder a fastboot cable
- download the root utility from this page:

https://
drive.
google.
com
/#folders/0B-dSyq3U-jVDNFZhSW1jd2RuQ0k

(kyleberry.graphics)

- put kindle into fastboot mode

the kindle showed :

Code:
Start downloading
writing boot...done

Good timing, a restore utility was just released, haven't checked out the script for it yet, but should work, just put it into fastboot and run the utility. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2685090
My Wallpaper Fix for KF2, KFHD 7", and KFHD 8.9" is HERE
Please Read the instructions and use the debugger if you run into errors.
My own modified adb drivers for just about all kindles (includes old twrp and cm versions) HERE
Tablet UI Patch for latest CM10.1 build HERE!

Please send complaints to /dev/null

Root worked perfectly with the 11.3.2.1-root_v2.0 package from kfsowi tools. took a while, approx. 20 minutes.
