The Kindle has been charged overnight before trying this.
I plug in USB. LED goes orange. Hold power switch and ~10-15 seconds later the orange LED goes out. Then hold home button. Then release power switch and orange LED comes back on. Then release home button. Nothing.
While plugged into the USB the device mounts for ~10 seconds, then screen refreshes and device is unmounted, then is mounted again for ~10 seconds etc. Does it matter at which point I try to get in to recovery mode (I have tried and there is not enough time to complete this process while it is mounted anyway...)?
Is there code that can be added to the RUNME.sh to get it to stop rebooting (or what ever it is doing) like this?
