I'm back at the YKNR screen...
All that means is that your boot counter was already too high now that you got past fastboot mode.

Which modes can you get to with MfgTool? You need to reset your boot counter OR zero mmcblk0p3 (which contains the boot counter).

I just followed the guide here and I was able to solve the Your Kindle Needs Repair notice. My problem now is when I restart my Kindle touch it freezes on the Please wait a moment while your Kindle starts up.

The only way I can get it to boot again is via MfgTool.

I dont get this one:

You may need to clear out your /var/local partition by zeroing mmcblk0p3, or you might need to set your idme bootmode var to main. It is possible that the "lockup" is actually booting to fastboot mode. If fastboot can see it, you can do "fastboot setvar bootmode main". Or in diags ssh, you can do "idme -d --bootmode main;rm /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS;reboot".

I also dont get this one:
Quote:
Assuming it is a K4 or touch, it sounds like your bootmode var is probably set to fastboot mode. You need to set it to main. You can do this with fastboot:

fastboot setvar bootmode main

Or you can set it from diagnotics mode at an SSH command prompt or in a RUNME.sh script launched by my data.tar.gz that you can download in the "Select Boot" thread.

To use a RUNME.sh script, you also need an ENABLE_DIAGS file so it runs in diags mode. Put these commands in a RUNME.sh script, or execute them from an SSH shell in diags mode:

idme -d --bootmode main
rm /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS
reboot



I would try the bootmode var first, then if necessary, zeroing the /var/local partition, in that order.

Good luck.
I am a super newbie please help!!!!

The instructions you questioned are for rebooting to main mode from diags SSH.

The "Please wait a moment" may mean that an update is being applied. That can take up to a half hour or more. Please give it time to finish.

If that does not work, you can try to repair the problem from diags ssh, or using a data.tar.gz and RUNME.sh to do it.

But the SIMPLEST way is to follow the instructions in the "simple debricking" sticky, and replace your broken main partition with a fresh copy of the main partition and kernel.

Please plug your kindle into a wall charger for the next 24 hours. Then unplug and hold the power button for 40 seconds. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Do you have USBNetwork access?

Did you try
Code:
idme -d --bootmode main;rm /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS;reboot

...

ISTR that the ENABLE_DIAGS file is ignored by newer firmware and the Rescue Pack watches for it and sets the bootmode instead.

...

How did you get into this situation originally?
