Kindle Touch bricked without USB
After successful recovery from a brick-state of my Kindle Touch I got into a bigger trouble. I was installing additional tools by ipkg and the process has frozen. I was still able to work within SSH but was unable to access /mnt/us - every access attempt froze. So I decided to do a hard reboot.
I ended up with a device that keeps restarting and even though I can see USB drive for a while I cannot access it. After every restart my Windows host find a USB mass storage device, but I get "The device is not ready." error. After a while it restarts again. It seems that /mnt/us is corrupted and I lost the only known way how to communicate with Kindle apart from serial cable.
Now I'm searching for information how to build a serial cable and where to find required parts. Thankfully my soldering iron still works.
Is there any way to do a factory reset without GUI? With older Kindle it was possible.
In the meantime I left it restarting all over and I hope fsck would kick in and things will work out.
I'll keep you posted regarging my progress.
