Also, the box had a sticker that said AT&T. Does that mean that it is locked to us 3g network?
So you tried to install the jailbreak 0.10n hack for the k3g on a brand new Kindle 3G, and it keeps failing? I'd say restore to factory default, and try again. Idk why it wouldn't work on a fresh Kindle, so long as you are copying over the correct install.bin for your particular Kindle.
And as to the AT&T thing, it is that company that Amazon has a deal with to give you free 3G. Idk what you mean by it being locked to a 3G network. It will look for 3G, or use normal cellular signal if it cannot find a 3G.
