Treat them as being "bricked" and follow the de-bricking guide in the top stick for the model.
Edit: Nevermind. I couldn't find some files but I found mirrors in an archive. I should be using 4.0 kernels with a 4.0 I assume? The guide I'm using is the noobs guide and they de-brick a Kindle Touch with 5.0 kernels


Update: Okay so I have all the files and 4.0 kernels and junk. Now in the guide it says that the kindle needs to be recognized as a human interface device or whatever. Now when I plugged the kindle in it automatically recognized it as a portable device and installed driver software. I kept resetting it trying to get it to recognize it properly but it stayed as a portable device. I decided to uninstall the driver software in hopes to get it re-recognized properly. But now it won't acknowledge the kindle at all. Neither as a device nor a human interface device or whatever. So I cannot move on to mfgtool yet. Can anyone help?

P.S. Since it probably matters. I'm running on Windows 7
