Clearly I'm doing something wrong. Bummer...!
Your information shows that you are successfully connecting to it, but it quickly disconnects. As I have mentioned in various posts, this is a sign of a discharged battery
. Please leave it connected in fastboot mode for several hours (preferably overnight)
. A bricked kindle discharged the battery to exhaustion, because battery charging is controlled by software (and you cannot trust the LED). It can receive a full charge in fastboot mode, which has the required battery charging code. You cannot do much useful in low-power mode though, so you must give your battery a full charge first. Then proceed with your recovery
I put simple step-by-step information in a new thread. Perhaps I need to complicate those instructions a little by adding battery recharging instructions...
