kindle semi brick problem

hello all

i was trying to jailbreak my kindle touch and i got into a spot of bother

i used the method described in Yifan Lu page and i ended up semi bricking the device i think mainly because their is one step missing between yifan lu and wiki version of how to jailbreak. anyway i can boot up but the kindle will always boot into diagnostic mode and i have to use mfgtool to get the kindle to work again . that cool it still works great but i have no text to speech and i really want to fix the kindle and jailbreak it to fix the margins for cbr files.

what im looking for is a clear guide as to how to get the jail broken from this and to fix the errors which cause it to go to diag mode and maybe a decent backup cause i was unable to make one. windows 7 user

thank you

You need to boot to fastboot mode and use the fastboot tool to change your bootmode var to main. Details are provided in the debricking sticky.

How did you determine that you cannot boot to fastboot mode? What VID/PID?
