While pressing the Volume keys, press the Power Button button to turn on the Kindle, release the Power button within 3 seconds. Just don't let go of the Volume keys until the Kindle is fully powered up. You will see "Safe Mode" in the left hand corner of your screen.
What is the error?
Tried the Hard Reset and the Safe Mode, neither worked. The message continues to pop up repeatedly.
The error itself is that after I tried to use the Next Launcher by putting it into the system/app folder like you would any other launcher to get it to do its things, it didn't work and now I get a continuous "Next Launcher Has Stopped" message that no matter how many times you press "OK" it keeps coming up, literally every second. The odd part is, I have been able to re-root the kindle and navigate it so I know I'm not bricked and I am 95% sure I am not soft bricked, though I could be wrong. I have managed to get ES Explorer back onto the Kindle and can navigate my way over time to the system/app folder. I have tried deleting the file and I get the "Error Deleting File" message and it continues. From what I can see, all I need to do is get this file deleted (and not try random untested things of course
) and if I can do that, it will be fixed. I just can't seem to get it deleted. I have tried both ES File Explorer and Astro File Explorer which are both still on my kindle. I have tried deleting it with the multi-select option in both but get that previously mentioned "Error Deleting File." I have tried moving it back to the sdcard/download folder with the same error. I have tried killing the task with Astro and ignoring it as well and that doesn't work. I am still working on this. I do realize as well that when this first happened I should have cleared out some files before I did the factory reset which also didn't work. However I was unable to get that file (Next Launcher) deleted which is why I went to the factory reset. After I managed to get the Kindle re-rooted, the only I haven't been able to do is get Superuser root access to the system/app folder to change permissions, again because of the repeated error.
It all comes down to the Next Launcher.apk file in the system/app folder that I can't get out. Long pressing anything doesn't work because of the repeated pop-up "Next Launcher has stopped." error mentioned above. The only way I can show you what it is exactly is to screw up your Kindle Fire HD 7 by downloading and putting the Next Launcher.apk file in the system app folder. That's literally all I did and now I can't get it to stop. I've even tried adding a second and third launcher to see if I could pick one on start up but that didn't work either. I even got ADW Launcher running and the error still came up. I'm running out of ideas. I'm open to any ideas at this point. Thanks for your time with this btw. I really appreciate it.
