Fire tablet has been recovered, thanks to @Kramar111! See the attachment to his post for the lk.bin file!

I'm on the verge of hard bricking my Fire tablet because the instructions on the [root][5.1.1] do not work. If someone could please retrieve the latest lk.bin from 5.1.1 stock (the latest Amazon made ROM), or from a custom rom that has been installed on top of FireOS 5.1.1 (by using FlashFire) and upload it, I would be greatful.

It's easy to do, and there isn't a risk of damage to your tablet. You do not need root, just adb shell access.

Run in adb shell:
Code:
dd if=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/by-name/UBOOT of=/sdcard/lk.bin
this command means 'copy byte by byte the data on the UBOOT block device and save it in a file called lk.bin on the SD card'

and you should be able to find the lk.bin file on your internal storage (with a file manager or with Android File Transfer).

Thank you for doing this, as I will be able to use my tablet without fear of it running out of battery and never starting again!

Hi @Kramar111, thanks for uploading this - are you sure this is the lk binary introduced in FireOS 5.1.1? It can't be from an older version.

Thank you so much, that's the correct version, I didn't even know you could manually download the files from Amazon!

Hi, I'm a newbie here. I have a soft-bricked fire which needs a recovery. Does this method helps to restore the device? How can I flash this lk.bin to the device? Thanks!!

It depends on what condition your device is in. Most likely not: it merely replaces the lk.bin with the 5.1.1 revision. And if this binary was modified, it's likely that if you rebooted your Fire it would be completely dead (apart from the preloader's upload port for SP Flash Tool).
