Wow I just saw my name up there in the debricking report!

Since it took me hours to find, here's a bit more information should someone find themselves in the same situation.

Model: Kindle 4.1

Problem: Repair Needed screen comes up after restart screen stops halfway on the progress bar. No USB drive detected.

Bricked Reason: Main kernel not corrupted, just entered wrong framework start path

Solution: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...sh#post1979349 (geekmaster's) MfgTool.exe+data.tar.gz+RUNME.sh

Lesson: Never try to hack your Kindle when you're sleepy and don't give up!!
