can't access settings and experimental page on kindle 3

everything in the menu from home works except settings and experimental. when i press settings, the home page appears while pressing experimental gives me a blank page. last thing i did was run ~exec nk following instructions from thread http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=97745
i want to access the settings page so i can reset to factory settings and jailunbreak my kindle 3. is there any way i can reset to factory settings without doing it from the settings menu? i was excited about hacking but im only a noob and now i'm lost

Reboot the Kindle. Slide and hold the power switch for 20-30 seconds.

thanks for replying.
will they assist me knowing the unit is jailbroken? done rebooting but no change. it was perfectly working with all the new fonts and screensavers. anyway attached is the dump file in case one can find what's wrong. due to limitations i split it into 3 parts. i got the dumpfile by ;dumpMessages after i turned debug on and tried accessing settings and experimental page.
