Unhappy [HELP]Where to get mmcblk0 image for unbricking kindle 3 (3g wifi,version 3.21)??

I bricked my kindle 3 (Version 3.21) after i uninstalled duokan ,I read in community forum that i could unbrick it via serial line. etched serial adapter now waiting for FT232RL delivery.

I followed unbricking guide of seaniko7 in youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OCpJbkGb7M

It says after creating partitions i have to dd the backup of kindle 3 system partition ,which i dont have .. as mines bricked i cant make backup (no sense ??)

Is there anyway i could get kindle 3 (version 3.21,3g wifi) backup system partition ??

Replacement from Amazon is not an option for me ,as im now in india and its KSO.. i have to send it to us,and they are only going to ship to as us address that not possible for me

Help me reviving my kindle back ,thanks in advance

With a serial adapter you'll have access to the command line.

Well, im getting a serial board (FT232RL) for that,

The problem is i dint have any backup before.

If somebody can provide the rootfs files for the version 3.2.1 that will be great


PS: Called amazon CS they denied shipping replacement to my country .
