I could not find which options those were or where. Still really dead so far.

I'm not sure either.

That said - if the progress bar moves and the screen contents change when you power-cycle - your device is in fact quite alive.

I would play a bit with Kubrick (did you try out other computers to run it?), k3flasher (to see what error it actually is reporting, I think you can run it from a shell with Kubrick, too), ATK.

If that progress bar doesn't move and you continue to see only this one screen - your screen is broken. Or you broke your connection for the screen - you were mentioning something about the ribbon cable in the second post, so you might have gotten it wrong there. Also, you were a bit short on information on what exact state your device is in, how you managed to break it, and what you did to it afterwards. There are bits about "storage messed" (how?), "ribbon cable" (screen connection?), and open questions about the LED colour. How does the device identify when plugged via USB?

The current state is that it does not respond to anything except that when using a flasher the power switch volume down command tells flasher its ready. Thats about the only response.

The ribbon cable I touched was indeed for the keyboard I now see, though it was the last time Id seen the green light and the half boot like the picture. I read someones post that said nothing had worked for him until he used a computer with xp and usb 1 and atk. The screen was fine for the boot and I did not get harsh on anything after that so I think that is ok.

Hmkay, so I was a bit mislead by the Picture of the device.
So command line k3flasher or ATK it is. ATK, however, is a bit sparse in terms of debugging output.

I would take k3flasher over atk anytime. That said. charge it for a few days first since you now have no way of knowing what kind of charge the kindle thinks it has got.

Was the same thing with atk and xp, it gave that same old "failed to initial flash or do not support this flash" Also kubrick does the same 1 sec completions and says "done" when of course it could not be that fast.
would k3flasher somehow have better luck? Im having doubts at this point but there is an answer out there....

No, it will probably generate the same outcome. Kubrick internally uses k3flasher anyway.
What happens is that the flashing gets flaky - maybe aborting with an error, maybe it's the device resetting (due to problems with the CPU, power source, ...). k3flasher isn't too verbose in why it failed, either - you would only get information about at what point it fails.

You did charge the device with a proper wall charger for a long time, right? Otherwise, there's not a lot you can do. It can be hardware error in a multitude of parts...
