A lot more specific details are provided in the "simple debricking" sticky thread. The "SMALL
guide" was never meant to contain all details for all corner cases. If we had specific versions of this guide for each firmware version of each kindle model with each versions of each host PC operating system, there could be a massive collection of these "small guides". If instead we ammended the guide to add all corner cases to it, it would no longer be small (or particularly simple).
Now, with that said, what VERSION of win7 are you using? Is is a x86 version or an x64 version? Did you run it in a Virtual Machine? What version of libusb did you use? What problems did you have installing it? How did you solve them? It would be a LOT easier for you to retrace your steps and document what you did, that somebody else to do it for you who does not have your memories. But, it WOULD be a nice contribution to the debricking process if you could document how you solved your problems.
Does anybody else know how to document the problems that Aleyest
said he can't remember how he solved, so that others do not have the same problems that Aleyest
had? Without more details, I know that I cannot. Sorry about that.
Perhaps you can get together with silver18
and suggest some specific changes that he can make to his document to make his documentation more robust?
