If I try to switch to fastboot mode and use yifanlu's kindle fastboot tool, it just hangs on < waiting for device >. Any clues? Is the battery dead, or am I misunderstanding the steps?
WHAT progress bar? If it is the normal starup progress bar, that is main bootmode. Fastboot mode does not change the screen at all, and diags mode goes directly from the "kindle tree" screen to the diags menu with NO PROGRESS BAR.
I cannot know the status of your kindle or how to proceed without more information...
I need to know WHICH progress bar (main system partition startup, or firmware update) that you see. If it is an UPDATE progress bar, then your USB drive has a ".bin" file on that it is trying to install. If it is a NORMAL progress bar (on the "Kindle Tree" screen) -- that is the main startup screen (not diags or fastboot).
