Hello. I am kind of a noob at this. I have been trying to unbrick my K3 with the ATK, and was getting the no usb detected error. This was on a 64 bit system. I saw that the usb drivers only come onto 32 bit systems, so i switched to an XP, 32 bit and tried again. I am still getting the no usb error, even after rebooting the machine. I have also tried following the ATK user guide and manually installing the usb driver. If i open device manager, i can see the Jungo driver in there, but ATK still gives me the no usb error. Any ideas?

Try doing

Plug your kindle into the computer. hold the power button for 30 seconds and then without letting go, press and hold the vol - button for 1 second, then release only the power button, wait 1 second, then release the volume button
before clicking next in ATK.

Try using a different cable or usb port then. Other than that I cannot really help you, unless you want to try making k3flasher run on windows or using linux...

k3flasher really is low effort these days (if you give the README a decent read) - since there is an actual build, not just source it is a couple of steps.

the OP would need to extract the supporting .bin he needs anyways via windows so that's not such a bad thing. Run a linux image-disk or something if installing linux is a real PITA. HTH.

All right i will try using linux. I already took care of the bin files, it is just the flashing program i am having issues with. Any old build should work right?

"Old build" of what? Linux? Well, I'd suggest it should be reasonably recent. But any "Mini" distribution should work. If you mean k3flasher - I published only one ready-made build up to now (in the k3flasher thread)...

UK - idiom - "any old" = type unimportant.

Yes.
And you do not have to install Linux, just run a "Linux LiveCD"
There are hundreds of those to choose from - if in doubt, run Knoppix
At least then you would be working with something we might recognize here.

Finally someone less understood than me

This is the lesser known "triple overhead manifold sprocket" release...
"Speak English Boy" hehehe

Yeah you should be peachy. Hawhill would know the very best thing to use (erm probably whatever he uses, then you have a known shared platform)

That's what I have done. Moved my OS over the the same as knc1 and even had a play at building one of Nilujes. Then you know where you are. None of this "No, nc DOES NEED THE -p FLAG", "Not on my box!!!" rubbish.

Anyways. glad you are venturing out into the word of linux, I can recommend Mint. It is really very painless aside from the odd meaningless glitch here and there.

Hope you get it sorted. The Mint Live CD thing is a very painless option if you just want to try it out.

Ah yeah. and try to avoid idioms, the multilingual types don't "Get them".

Think Ziva from NCIS and you have it
HTH

What's really funny about all this is I'm in the US, not the UK. I would have thought more people would have know what I meant.

libusb(x) is now statically compiled into the versions I've provided in the first post. So a reasonably recent glibc is all that's needed.

BTW: I very well got the phrase "any old", but was wondering about the reference since the last reference point in that paragraph was the "flashing program", not the "linux distribution".
