Hi, I did follow those instructions (as mentioned earlier in this thread), but to no avail.
Just out of curiosity, what was the reason for your Kindle to die in the first place?
Note that for my device, it was the simple task of running the official Amazon firmware update, on an otherwise unmodified KT.
I think it is safe to assume that if the firmware image for some reason was corrupted, the factory reset will be insufficient to fix it and a full re-flush of the firmware will be required.
I am certainly no expert though, so I may be wrong.
