Make sure, leave on charger over-night at least.

If it doesn't - then install the KUAL launcher and I'll post a button to give you a battery status report - which should report its current capacity (which might be very low now).
Well I was charging it last night, then I attempted to flash the debrick thing through ATK but I wasnt able to do it because the step where I have to hold the power and the volume button didn't trigger anything that I Could see

How can I install KUAL if the Kindle freezes every half a minute :O (is it this thread: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=203326 )

Hi...

¨Nothing I could see¨ hmm. so hold the power for 20 ish seconds and do the exact sequence I describe in the previous post.

if NOTHING changes on the screen, or it stays white or whatever? that is probably right....

There IS NO GUI for this mode of operation.

read the k3flasher docs. they are quite clear and I have splattered worked examples of using it around every time I do.

That will be of more use than KUAL until you get the reboots fixed as you say.

Good luck

So how does one know if the sequence does anything? I tried to flash following the passage for Win 32bit with ATK on the wiki page, it took 4h and nothing changed!? I don't even know if it actually flashed anything since I don't know if the Power+Volume procedure worked

err... what? right. atk. I dont know.

as you can see the docs I provided were for an alternate solution.
The lengthy example is for another thing entirely. k3flasher

Also as you can see when I use the other thing there is plenty of output.
So. If you were asking me a question about something I talked about I could help.

However, as I said, I don´t go the atk route.

The worked example provided is enough to get the job done. I cant speak for ATK or windows. sorry

This tool you talk about, k3flasher, works only under Linux correct?

For anyone who went the ATK route, is it normal that the clean kernel (http://pastebin.com/Wdw4L7yT) comes as an .img file isntead of .bin?

Uhm - okay so basically I took out the battery left it out for like 5h but the screen stayed on???

Re-inserted the battery, went for reboot and since the kindle keeps re-booting after freezing..I am just wondering how can I just wipe the OS and let it reinstall?

Yeah, istn't that nice?
NO - the screen isn't on, any more than a printed paper page is on when you can see the ink.
Duh...

I thought when losing the battery the charge of the screen would drop too !!
Anyways, is anyone expert or can help me out? I just don't know if its fixable or if i have to buy a new one!

Yes of course it is probably fixable.

However with atk, Windows, and your current level of expertise tough to make a judgement how long that might take.

I would suggest changing one of the variables.

Try a different OS, or a different Toolset, or do a bit more research.

A ilnux LIVE CD wont make your windows computer explode you know.
(might run a bit better but no explosions)

best advice? mix up the equation.

I installed antix on my netbook I went to the k3flashing thread but I don't understand where to begin LOL!
P.s. Is anyone on IRC tonight? I'd rather ask help there than to pollute this thread!

Whats wrong with? http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=190842

THESE ARE NOTES FOR K3FLASHER

NOT ATK

Spoiler:

TRIMMED:

a) Select your weapons -
Quote:
I have chosen the very excellent k3flasher by hawhill. It's embryonic and but should get the job done in linux. http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=184310

b) Get an Image (I'm going for the 3.0.2 Kernel and File system)

c) grab a copy of mx35to2_mmc.bin from the ATK install (you can just install it in wine and grab the file out)

HINT (/home/you/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/freescale/AdvancedToolKit-STD/image/*)

c) Put K3flasher in a listening state <-- DONT FORGET TO DO THIS FIRST!!

sudo ./k3flasher ./mx35to2_mmc.bin info

d) put your device in USB Downloader mode

Quote:
This MUST work. It is a HARDWARE function that does not use mmc. so don't say "It wont go into that mode... Yes it will, you are doing it wrong"
Plug into computer USB, slide power until LED off (back off a little so you can see the LED status), press Vol-, then release power. Then release -Vol.

(about 20 seconds is a reasonable time for all that lot to take)

You then use k3flasher to connect (soon after the new VID/PID are detected on the PC).

(me@dev /usr/local/src/k3flasher)$ sudo ./k3flasher ./mx35to2_mmc.bin info

Quote:
I: found suitable device
I: read info
I: got size 1048576 (probably wrong)
I: downloading 0x00000200 (=512) bytes, starting at 0x00040c00
I: DO NOT MAKE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION PUBLIC!
I: if you need to discuss it in public, obfuscate
I: e.g. the second half of the numbers.
I: got device serial number <B006C0D319990Q6P>
I: got device Wifi MAC <29FF099099FF>
Okay we have a connection:

Let's push across the kernel

me@dev /usr/local/src/k3flasher $ sudo ./k3flasher ./mx35to2_mmc.bin program kernel ./k3w-kernel-factory.img

Wait a longish time
Quote:
I: flashed 0x001a0000 (=1703936) bytes
I: flashed 0x001b0000 (=1769472) bytes
I: flashed 0x001c0000 (=1835008) bytes
I: flashed 0x001d0000 (=1900544) bytes
I: flashed 0x001e0000 (=1966080) bytes
I: flashed 0x001f0000 (=2031616) bytes
I: flashed 0x00200000 (=2097152) bytes
I: flashing of 0x00200000 (=2097152) bytes complete
I: writing 0x00007000 (=28672) bytes to address 0x28dc1000, waiting for completion...
I: wrote 0x00007000 (=28672) bytes, waiting for completion...
I: flashing of 0x00007000 (=28672) bytes complete
now the file system

me@dev /usr/local/src/k3flasher $ sudo ./k3flasher ./mx35to2_mmc.bin program rootfs ./mmcblk0p1-3.0.2-factory.img

This will take about 3 hours to cook...
(you charging it though? Right)

Next steps, test this works after a reboot (worked fine for me)

You should see Kindle version 3.0.2 in your Settings Page on the kindle.

MENU -> SETTINGS (in the status bar at the bottom)
(3.0.2 (999999blah) I see this)


FROM THIS POINT YOU ARE GOOD... if you are just trying to get a fixed device just upgrade it now. to whatever version.

I've debricked using this method once before.


Now I need to do it a second time and I'm about ready to give up...

(Windows Vista 32 bit)

I do everything:

Charged. Made the right selections. USB download mode. Drivers look OK.(showing MX35 & WinDriver now)

Reinstalled ATK, restarted.

But still: 'USB not detected'....

If the drivers are wrong do I remove one?(or can someone attach the one they used maybe??)



Thank you, help is appreciated.
