On the K3, in "DIAGS_MODE" it is scripted.
I recall reading it, when figuring out why the USB PHY burned out but do not recall **where** in the scripting I read it.

You did not provide enough details to determine which of many possible problems may have happened. Perhaps MfgTool did not see a kindle attached in USB Downloader mode because you had successfully switched it to fastboot mode just like you told it to do...

You are right, I think MFgTool did not see a Kindle attached. What maybe the reasons.....?
I already switched Kindle to USB recovery mode. Open MFgTtool and press fastboot mode and nothing is happening...

Did MfgTool show an attached Freescale device? By "press fastboot mode" do you mean that you selected fastboot from the menu, or that you pressed the start button after selecting fastboot?

It didn't show Freescale device. I even tried to open Kindle back cover and take off all conections but even that not going true Screen still is frozen.

What is the best way how to reboot it?
When i opened the ADV and set it up and switch next-it showed no USB detected. Maybe drivers not installed!? Win7 32bit.
When i tried with MfgTool after pressing start button it just not working ( no USB detect)
"Press and keep pressed the power switch until LED turns off, then press the magic button (while power switch is still pressed) and finally release the power switch "
After this point i stacked.

Help me dear guru



1. Buy Kindle 3 wifi on ebay
2. Recieved. Open. see 3.4 firmware.
3. Make downgrade with ATK V 1.67 to 3.0.2
4. ATK write: success
5. Brik
- Not power on (15 / 30 / 60 sec, power + magic key volume down known key shortcuts - don't yield result)
- repeated firmware + repeated firmware - the same
- charging from charging device - yellow light on (4...6 hours) and die away. Make charging more 20 hours.
- If to get and again to turn on charging plug - again the yellow indicator on.
- The computer sees the device BLANK RINGO it is possible to download firmware again

What me to do?
I in mourning, badly sleep...

Hi guys!
Just want to warn my English is bad. And I know nothing about Linux. Only windows...
I upgraded the Kindle keyboard to version 3.4 and I did not like it.
I decided to downgrade.
I downloaded the kernel-3.0.2 and mmcblk0p1-3.0.2 and ATK.
Launched ATK. And here, I think I made a mistake and wrote kernl in 0x0 ... (yeah i'm an idiot )
But all writed in 3 hours with no problems or errors and ATK wrote "Finished!"
Kindle will not start. In Device Manager, there is "Jungo". (I understand the Kindle is still in the USB download mode)

I tried to understand all that is written in this thread and I hope I understood correctly:
I need to:
1. flash partitiontable-header-uboot.img in 0x0
2. flash kernl in 000041000
3. flash mmcblk0p1-3.0.2-fatstory in 00031000

Only in that order.
If I perform 1st paragraph, all that I have done up to this to do over again?
Thank you.

term1nat0r: It's worser. The steps 1 & 2 are right. What is that mmcblk0p1-3.0.2-fatstory you mention in step 3? Where do you have that from?
You need another thing additional to step 1 & 2 to make your device fully working again: The device-specific information. I still don't know of any image of that - you could try to get your hands on a working unit and make a backup of its device specific info. Of course you would still need to edit it to match your device (serial number, MAC address). Warning: not so easy...

setinhere: what Windows are you using? 32bit? 64bit? On a "bare metal" or a virtual system? What device is shown in the Windows device manager? You speek of a "MX35". Please give the full title (or attach a screenshot). Are you really sure you put your device in USB downloader mode?
All parameters you mention sound right.

I took it from here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0ByA...G9SdlZBb2dBa00
Link on it was in one of the articles - translations of K3noobdebrickatk in Russian (http://habrahabr.ru/sandbox/49167/). Is it wrong file?

Only MAC an Serial? What will happen if I do not specify this information? Kindle will not go online?
If Only MAC and Serial i think i I can find mac on my router and serial in amazon site. The question is how to write to the device

Its Windows 7x86 Ultimate on a "bare metal". If it will be need i can run Ubuntu in virtual system or can install it on "bare metal". But I am a complete noob at this system.

Now I have a problem. I charged the Kindle all night and half of a day.
Now as I connected it to my Computer Install the new storage device: Kindle Internal Storage USB Device..

Uff.. I turned it into a USB downloader again.


And I think it would be helpful too [IMG]
