Other than that, I was expecting the hurdles I needed to go through afterwards, thanks to the insightful information found here in the forums.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding; some of us are art majors and don't know our way around computers!
I added your success report to the list in the first post. Congratulations on your successful debricking!

It's theoretically the same - the .bin ran exactly these commands. Practically, it's even better, because it actually works, whereas the .bin wouldn't always work correctly - that's the whole point why it was taken offline.

Funky messages - may not be an exact description.

It looks like your missing one (or both) of the Amazon certificates.

But attach that portion of the log dump you sent me to a post (zip or gzip it) - maybe someone else can spot the problem.

If you can't find the "manage attachments" thing - it is only in the "advanced editor" -

Can anybody offer further advice on my problem? Details are quoted below.

My Kindle Touch is no longer endlessly rebooting. It is stuck on the boot screen with the tree. Despite flashing it according to the guide in boot mode, I am unable to get it to reboot into diag mode. When I enter the final command in the guide "fastboot reboot," the only thing that happens is that the libusb-win32 devices along with the Kindle-Fastboot disappears from my Device Manager. The Kindle Touch remains unresponsive and I can't figure out how to get it to boot into diag mode.

I tried repeating the fastboot steps a few times, even downloaded the files from a different source, and am still stuck at the same place in the debricking process.

Is there any way for me to continue from here?

I have been reading this thread all the way and maybe you can help me, but I think my problem is a bit special. I have a 5.3.1 PW, I did not try to install jailbreak, or anything, but after a charge it was showing the "Your Kindle Needs Repair." message (I charged it for 14 hours for now still nothing). I am wondering if there is (or probably there will be) any method that can be tried (even on hardware level) to fix the problem (As I understood data.stgz method does not work with this version). I live outside the US and I do not want to send it back to Amazon (they sent a change to me to an US address though).

I am just curious if it can be saved since it does not seems all dead (battery light screen works so...)

What do you think?

Hi. While I was trying to setup usbnetwork from diagnotics, i stucked in it. I didn't now i have already had it. ixtab said me to do
"idme -d --bootmode main
reboot"

after that my pw is stuck in boot(kindle tree screen) And my PC doesn't recognize it

After a while "charge it" screen appeared. When i plug it to pc while it has "charge it" screen, new device is shown in my computer. But when i tried to open folder, pc didn't allow it.

Are these mean my pw bricked? Can I debricked it?

Those are symptoms of a dead battery. Diags can completely drain the battery. Charge it on a wall charger for a full day, then try to restart it.

You can debrick it using a serial port connection. It would be much easier to recover if you HAD installed jailbreak and some other stuff before it bricked...

A jailbreak install MIGHT still work. You need to reset a "failed boot" counter to get rid of YKNR (Your Kindle Needs Repair)...

Thanks for answer, yes I found out that I should have installed jailbreak... no comment for amazon... Can you please provide a link where I can get some information about serial port debricking, because I cannot find detailed ones.

Thanks again, I will keep posting results.
