Thanks geekmaster! Major kudos for the de-bricking and Select Boot tools!
I went ahead and flashed 5.1.0 since my KT seems to be able to update with *.bin files now. My thought was that a 5.1.0 flash would sync everything. Everything seems to work fine.
The only problem is when I do Settings->Restart, it still hangs at the screen
"Please wait a moment while
your Kindle starts up"
And I have to USB connect the KT to the PC and run the MfgTool (main mode) with the button push On->Magic->OnRelease->MagicRelease to get back the KT Home. Any ideas of why it continues to hang at that screen on Restart? Or anyone else had this problem solved in another post?
Maybe start over and flash both mmcblk0p1-kt-5.0.0.img and kernel-kt-5.0.0.img?
