Because the kindle debricking repair images contain a COPY of a guid file that came from the original source kindle, it is no longer "globally unique" as its name implies. I do not know the consequences of having many debricked kindles with the same "Globally Unique IDentifier", but one problem seems to be that a K5 3G that was debricked with firmware from a wifi-only K5 no longer has 3G acess in reported cases.

Perhaps deleting the guid file before registering with amazon may fix this problem, assuming that a missing guid file gets regenerated. This will require further investigation...

If anybody can provide additional useful information about this, please do so here. Thanks.
