I have erased the /var/local partition as per silver18's guide (the code that is: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk0p3 bs=4k count=1k). However, just to be sure, I'll rerun the steps again and try the code: echo 0 > /var/local/upstart/lab126_gui.restarts

Thank you for your patience. I'll try it now.

EDIT: WOW. Just WOW. My kindle touch is up and running again. Thank you very much silver18. And thank you very much geekmaster. I'm sorry if I stroked your angry side because of my stupidity. I ran the code: echo 0 > /var/local/upstart/lab126_gui.restarts in addition to everything in the guide. And it worked! Back to
