[HELP] Erased mmc0 accidentally, is there a way to debrick it?

I was trying to fix my PW2 from a boot loop by reinstall the 5.3.1.bin file,
however, I accidentally erased mmc0
Now the system is totally dead saying there no kernel, and stops at uboot > prompt.
Is there a way to bring it back to life?

Yup - use u-boot to reload the system image.
There are directions post here for doing that on a PW2.

After reading some of the earlier posts here, I managed to get my Kindle PW2 into fastboot mode.

However, I flashed below img into my PW2, they don't seem to work properly

PW(Paperwhite) main images (root pw = fiona2bc): pw_5.2.0-main_kernel: http://www.mediafire.com/?51r6gm6new6tv19 pw_5.2.0-main_kernel: http://ixtab.tk/kindle-touch-images/..._kernel.img.gz pw_5.2.0-mmcblk0p1+jb+ssh: http://www.mediafire.com/?5w619l68mrcawlb pw_5.2.0-mmcblk0p1+jb+ssh: http://ixtab.tk/kindle-touch-images/...cblk0p1.img.gz PW(Paperwhite) diags images: pw_5.2.0-diags_kernel: http://www.mediafire.com/?alv98tlq28rtx5e pw_5.2.0-diags_kernel: http://ixtab.tk/kindle-touch-images/..._kernel.img.gz pw_5.2.0-mmcblk0p2: http://www.mediafire.com/?afodh08q5had1z1 pw_5.2.0-mmcblk0p2: http://ixtab.tk/kindle-touch-images/...cblk0p2.img.gz

Are those imgs only work for PW instead of PW2?
Where can I find the imgs for PW2?

Use KindleTool to un-pack the update package of your choice (which results in a tar archive) -
Un-archive (with root permissions) onto an appropriate filesystem.

Wella - a device image file.

You need PW2 system images.
The only thing the same between the PW1 and the PW2 is the name on the case.

In addition to my post above, see:

Thank you so much for helping me out, just a few seconds before I saw your reply, I was about to throw my PW2 out.

Your way worked just fine, I extracted the kernel from a 5.4.3.2 update bin file (called uImage), and flashed it into my PW2 in fastboot mode, then I was finnally able to reach the recovery menu, and recovery the full system image.

The most amazing thing is that my PW2 was an advertisement version, now all ads are gone, a nice extra suprise

Not to worry about missing the ads -
Amazon will automatically update your device to its SO status to restore the ads.

(SO status is in their database, not only on the device.)
