Update Kindle 3 through Recovery Mode
My Kindle 3 has been stucked at loading bar progress (stop loading at 25% of progess bar), so I try to enter Recovery Mode by holding power switch 30sec, and then hold Home key 20 sec, then My Kindle prompt me to reset to factory defaults. I typed "RESET", then my Kindle 3 move into Recovery Mode, I press R key to exit, then my screen show "Please wait a moment for Kindle to start up" and stuck forerver,
So I think maybe the software faults, so I repeat steps above to enter Recovery Mode again, and I see the text "If you want to update through Recovery Mode, call Customer Services ..."
So I called CS but nothing helpful. I'm not in America to easy get new one and return old one.
I plugged My Kindle in Recovery Mode in Ubuntu system, but only see the empty FAT partition.
Anyone know to update through Recovery Mode?
Pls help me! I must be crazy with it.

I also did this RESET thing: goo.gl/iOS9l . Fortunately I found an address in US to get replacement.
You should also try to find a way to solve this via CS
otherwise only solution is unbricking which is not easy: goo.gl/PfXxl , goo.gl/gQBqs , goo.gl/Q7XDc , goo.gl/ydLVA
