Serial and MAC is lost
I looked for everywhere, but anywhere didn't find. It simply didn't remain neither in a router nor in documents (they aren't present). in general isn't present. If to use data from other K3w it will give problems?
Naturally, these books won't be at the same time on the Internet.
You should be able to see the serial number on your "manage my Kindle" page.
Then call Kindle CS, explain the situation and ask them to give you the corresponding MAC address.

Erm , total noob here, need help. Tried to jailbreak my kindle touch, firmware 5.1.2. all 6 steps of the jailbreak went ok , got a screen saying you are being jailbroken etc, but at the end the 'jailbroken' book was not present. THEN somehow managed to reboot the device, which rebooted into the diagnostics screen and then hung! Now the thing is a brick! no response to controls, not able to read from the USB. HELP!!!!!!

The thing is not a brick. Follow the instructions in the first post.

PS: It would have been nice if you mentioned that you used the wrong jailbreak for the wrong device, not Kubrick. http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=2449244

ok my kindle is no longer a Brick. Ta very much it worked!

couple of questions, I didn't find any 'jailbroken' book after de bricking and jailbreaking, is the 'jailbreak' book thingy just something from another software developer or did the jailbreak fail?

I originally got myself ina pickle because I wanted a simple text editor on my kindle touch, can you direct me to how to get this sorted out please, so I don't mess up again?

If you checked the corresponding checkbox to install it, then the jailbreak is installed. The "you are jailbroken" text file is just a feature of (some of) the other jailbreak methods.

Well, now that you know how to debrick, you can safely mess with the Kindle. It's almost impossible to completely break the Kindle Touch.

Anyway, take a look at the KUAL thread, there should be one or two text editors linked from there. (e.g. Leafpad)

Hi, I have a problem with my Kindle Touch and I'm currenlty trying to recover it. Last week I did a hard reset (I've got ~50 book and KT started to run very slow) and after that the only thing I can see is a screen with a man sitting under the tree. Kindle is not booting up.
I tried Kubrick CD following all the instructions. Device is detected, flasking is successful but I'm stuck on the screen when my interaction with Kindle diagnostic mode is necessary. Problem is my Kindle is not booting in diagnostic mode at all. After previous steep Kindle restarts automatically and I see same screen - a man sitting under the tree and reading something - I hope not a Kindle
Any ideas? Thanks.

You're the first person to report this odd behavior. Anyway, you could try to "manually" bring the device into diags mode. On the screen where it says "We need your input now...", leave Kubrick waiting.

1. Press Alt+F2, and login as root (no password)

2. Make sure your Kindle is in USB downloader mode (Same as at the beginning - press power button until LED turns off, press home button in addition, release power, release home).

Then type the following:
Code:
cd /mnt/kubrick
./imx_usb resources/imx_usb_img/diags.bin
That *should* boot the Kindle into diags. If it doesn't, then something is seriously wrong with your device. Please post the output of the above command in that case.

If it worked, press Alt+F1 to get back to the tty with the dialog, and continue from there.

Device: Too many.
Keep it on external power -
Wait for it to finish re-indexing the 50 books -

Continue to keep it on external power until the battery has time to fully re-charge from this experience (like, at least 10 hours).

With a battery having a low capacity (like that of a pen-light battery) there will not be enough stored power to completely index all your books before it has to shut down due to a low battery condition.

So you may find yourself repeating the above steps over several days.
And if there is a 'bad book" on the machine, then you will have to transfer off all of your books to let the indexer complete its job and allow the Kindle to continue with its boot-up.

Many thanks for the suggestion. I tried on the second console and last log lines look like that:

Code:
loading binary file(resources/imx_usb_img/diags.bin) to f8006000, skip=0, fsize=800 type=aa

<<<2048, 2048 bytes>>>
jumping to 0xf8006400
report 1, wrote 16 bytest, err=0
report 3, read 4 bytes, err=0
read=56 78 56
jump_mode 2 plug=1 err=0
resources/imx_usb_img/diags.bin
header_max=1000

loading binary file(resources/imx_usb_img/diags.bin) to f8007000, skip=0, fsize=fed0 type=aa

<<<65232, 65232 bytes>>>
jumping to 0xf800742c
Everything looks fine, no errors etc., but my Kindle is not booting up in diagnostics mode. My guy is still there... yep, under the tree No progress bar etc.

If that's indexing problem how can I manually remove all of my books from Kindle? Under Windows (ekhmm, sorry ) Kindle is not detected as a drive.

I'm out of ideas. The point is that the diags kernel and partition are flashed right before rebooting to diags mode...

Hi, I have a small problem with this great thing.
When I start with boot everything goes correct (I see picture and then process start) till it stops at the sentence: Sending discover...
Can somebody help with this situation. I would like to use this superb program.

Is your laptop connected to an ethernet network with a working DHCP server ? If not, can you try to boot with the ethernet cable disconnected ?
