Device: Kindle 3 Keyboard 3G
Question Reflashing original firmware

Hi!

I just bought a used Kindle 3 Keyboard 3G (EU model, serial starting with B00A). It does not connect to 3G, and on WiFi, it can't be registered with Amazon ("Your Kindle is unable to connect at this time.")

My suspicion is that the eBay seller has jailbroken it using Kubrick, and that Kubrick installs the US firmware. The EU model seems to have a different firmware, and also uses Vodafone in stead of AT&T.

Is there any way to restore the original firmware? I've been googling for hours, but in vain...

Read the original (manual) de-bricking threads and review the available recovery images.

I just chatted with Kindle support, and they told me that the Kindle with that S/N had been reported as lost or stolen. Think I'll have to contact the seller... :-(
