Question Help Un-hacking my 2nd Gen Kindle?

I'm having all sorts of issues.
My dad tried to do a screensaver hack and it must have failed or something, but the firmware is stuck at 2.5.6 (501108064) +ss 0.4
I have tried (for way too many hours, really) to uninstall it using original firmware, resetting to factory settings (before i learned that that wouldn't help) and upgrading the screensaver hack.

Can you help me to just get it back to stock so i can upgrade to the latest official release before jailbreaking it?

Serial Number: B003B0ABLAHBLAH

Thanks!

Hmm.. I really don't think you should give away your full serial number here. Perhaps just show the initial B0003

You might try posting in the the Kindle Developer's Corner under the "Fonts and Screensaver Hacks" thread, they're usually very helpful....

You don't have to go back to "stock" before upgrading the firmware. If you insist... uninstall the ss hack and the jailbreak with the uninstall programs that come with them.
Do a factory reset.
Update to latest firmware.
Install jailbreak/hacks.

I believe 2.5.8 is the latest for the second generation Kindle. That's not going to give you any new whistles and bells that 2.5.6 doesn't have. I'm still on 2.5.6 with all of the hacks installed successfully.

EDIT: ...and yes, don't post your entire serial number on public forums.
