The best option at this time is using the serial port.
Well, I guess that means I'll have to get a new one. I can't really send it back after jailbreaking it, even if I only used it for an hour or so

I wish I knew what went wrong, too. I don't really want to have a kindle if I can't get rid of some parts of the system, but I'm afraid I'll just permabrick the second one, too. :P

Edit: I did see specific usb/serial cables mentioned in some places. Would I still need to be able to solder to get serial port access if I got one of those?

The other question is... even if I manage to get through into the serial port (which might not work, either), what could be causing a brick this severe, and could I even fix it? Do you think the flash memory got messed up with an unsafe unmount/eject?
