Guess i bricked my Kindle Touch - Help needed :)

my kindle touch is stuck at the screen with the tree saying "please wait while your kindle is being launched". holding down the power button does nothing.

however i can connect it to MFG tool and using the "main" profile i can reboot/awake my kindle and after disconnecting it from usb i can use it as long as i dont restart the kindle, then it is stuck again.

any advice for me? im using a windows pc if that matters, no linux.

Hello again

try this thread: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=170929 . You're much more likely to find the required information there, or to get answers to further questions. BTW, this is also prominently linked from http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kind...ing#Unbricking

Good luck!

If you can boot to main by TEMPORARILY setting bootmode to main, then your bootmode idme var is set to something else (probably fastboot mode).

You can accidentally set it to fastboot mode in diagnostics by selecting the fastboot package in the exit menu.

Previously, the only way out of fastboot was using the fastboot tool to change the idme bootmode var, but now you can do it from diagnostics, either in an SSH shell, or from a RUNME.sh that is launched from diags.

In diags, you can change your bootmode var permanently (until you change it to something else) with:

idme -d --bootmode main


you also need to remove your ENABLE_DIAGS file if you have one, and reboot. You can do these commands:

rm -f /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS
reboot

After you set bootmode to main, it should boot to main without needing to use MfgTool to do a tethered boot.
