Kindle Touch

Hi guys,

I bricked my Kindle Touch today trying to unlock G-sensor... Now it's not even available as USB storage device, charge only

Unfortunately I can't even get started unbricking it, because MfgTool doesn't work for me

My actions:
-Plug KT in
-Press and hold Power
-Press Home after LED goes off
-Release Power
-Release Home
After that I see that KT is in USB/HID mode (it's displayed in Device Manager as shows on example screenshot), but the MfgTool doesn't work. It says "No USB ports selected" and Start button is unavailable.

Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks,
Alex

Drivers located where?

Hi,

I've tried looking through a fair few pages here, and I can't find the drivers to connect the Kindle once its in USB recovery mode.

Is there a link someone can provide please?

Thanks,

-Andy.

No USB Ports Selected

Hey guys,

I too fail to get my Kindle Touch to enter USB Recovery mode.

When I follow the steps, my Kindle Touch screen keeps saying 'USB Drive Mode' and my MfgTool says 'No USB Ports Selected'.

What should I do? Step by step, please.

Also, when I press 'Options' > 'Configuration' > 'USB Ports', my MfgTool crashes. A related issue?

I finally just tried on a different computer. It worked. Duokan installed.

I've upgraded my Kindle Touch to 5.3.7, and now everytime I reboot, it will hang on the tree screen, saying "Please wait a moment while your Kindle starts up."

I then have to plug it into the computer, and open MfgTool. Strangely, it will be recognized as a HID-compliant device automatically, no need to press any Magic button.

In MfgTool, I choose "Kindle main", press "Start", and then my KT will go on booting.

In total, it seems that my KT always stays in USB Recovery mode, so does anyone know how to go back to the normal mode?

Thank you!

--EDIT:--

Well, I've tried to hold the power button for seconds, and now it seems everything goes OK.

Hi guys,

In September I updated my Kindle Touch with the official update release and soon after that Kindle started freezing. For a while hard reset helped but now it is completely bricked.

It's not under warranty anymore so I've tried few methods to unbrick it but no luck so far. I have tried also Kubrick 3.6 (on both amd64 and old x386) and guide prepared from Silver18. Although I was charging Kindle for a whole week with wall charger, I just can't get it into fastboot. When in "USB downloader" boot mode it is detected as NS Blank CODX (libusb-win32 devices) but that’s it. When running/entering fastboot (in win7 or with Kubrick) the response is “waiting for device”.

I hope you guys have some additional suggestions how to unbrick it.
