Can you boot to main by using MfgTool.

Yes, I believe I did.

I haven't tried to boot to main using MfgTool.

I did try that command, and got the error described in the guide, so I did what the guide said:

Quote:
NB: rm /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS could give you this error:
rm: can’t remove ‘/mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS’: No such file or directory
This happens because you don’t have any ENABLE_DIAGS file in /mnt/us. If so, don't bother and jump to next command (idme -d --bootmode main).

Here's the updated fastboot log:



And the last putty log:

The log looks normal. If it did not reboot, try a hard reset (hold power button 30 seconds). Also try booting main from MfgTool. If no good, try erasing the /var/local partition (dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk0p3 bs=4K), and then reboot.

It might take awhile to boot up if it is doing an fsck on the main partition. Be sure the battery has a full charge.

But -- be sure there is NO USB cable plugged in while rebooting...

Ok, will try that.

Can I plug it in to the wall while rebooting?

In my experience, that can interfere too. Let it charge in fastboot mode for awhile if the battery may be low, before booting with no USB cable. It continues to drain the battery while in diags (no sleep mode in diags), so it is good to recharge just before trying anything (like rebooting).

Ok, i'll pop it back in to fastboot and let it sit for a bit.

Thank you so much. *fingers crossed*

Yup, it won't hard reset if it's plugged to anything. The hard reset actually just disconnects the battery for a short period of time, so it's not doing a thing if the Kindle is plugged to a power source .

I tried the hard reset, no go.

I tried booting main from MfgTool, no go.

So I tried running the command and I get this:



Is that normal?

Ah, thanks for the tip. I tried the hard reset while not plugged in.

Looking at the guide, I don't think the above command worked?

The guide says it should look similar to this:

Quote:
[root@[192_168_15_244] root]# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk0p3 bs=4K count=1K 1024+0 records in 1024+0 records out 4194304 bytes (4.0MB) copied, 0.025542 seconds, 156.6MB/s [root@[192_168_15_244] root]# idme -d --bootmode main Devmode enabled Reading vars from temp storage... ...None found, Copying vars from /proc
And mine just says 'no space left on device'.

@evergamer: The purpose of the dd command was to mangle the var partition, in order for it to be recreated properly on the next boot. So you'll probably have to reboot once before actually being able to use it again . (Or just run the init script that creates it, but I don't know which one it is off the top of my head).

Oh ok. I'll try rebooting again and a hard boot, then will look for the script.

The "documented" command also limits it to writing 1K blocks (4MB). The way I showed you always worked for me, but some people had problems zeroing the entire device. It is NORMAL for an "out of space" error to occur when you do not limit the size, because the /dev/zero source is infinite capacity.

If that does not work, try it again with as documented in the guide.

Here's the putty result using the documented command:

It's currently sitting at the Enable USBnet screen, with an amber light. I cannot navigate.

Should I try a hard boot? Or let it sit for a bit?

So I put it back in to fastboot and it's been sitting charging for an hour and a half. I pulled the USB cable, held down the power button for 30 seconds, the light turned off(which was green) and it's still not doing anything. It's still sitting at the Enable USBnet screen, but I cannot navigate through it. Pushing the power button does nothing. I don't even get a light.
