Hi everybody, i'm Riccardo, from Italy, and i've just bought this amazing tablet, Kindle Fire HDX "7.
I've tried to follow the steps in order to root the device, but i think i've screwed up everything lol
It literally won't start, when i push the power button, appears a black screen with only written "Kindle fire", without "HDx" or whatever it was, as it happened before. And this written won't fade, it lasts forever
I've tried to reset to factory defaults, with a manual way ( 20 secs double pushing bottons power and up ) but, after the process, it doesn't boot anyway.

Is there some drastic way to reset everything, maybe through computer or usb devices?

I hope I were as understandable as possible... sorry for my bad english

And i also hope that is allowed to speak of rooting situations

Check the unbricking guides in the General forums.

The same issue like mine. My hdx unbricked by a local vendor with a OEM software. So please don't give up.

i've followed the guide that i've found on this forum, i'm actually not able to find it right now :asd:

Root was ok, the real problem was popped out after my vain try to install google play store, following this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2787813
