Device: kindle keyboard (wifi + 3g)
Hi folks:

I'm following this thread with rapt attention as my Kindle 3G Keyboard is bricked; and I'm trying to make it work. See for details.

I downloaded ATK 1.67 on Windows XP 32 bit (I am using VirtualBox for this OS, as I normally run 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04 LTS). I see on VirtualBox: "Freescale Semiconductor Inc. SE Blank RINGO". I went ahead and ran it, selected:
* i.MX35_TO2 (I also tried TO1)
* DDR2

and made sure to check that vbox could access the USB device I described earlier. I got to the next screen where you choose between Flash Tool and Image Format Convert Tool. I pushed Flash Tool; and then the button depressed; but nothing happened.

I'd love to get my Kindle 3G working again, as the screen is AOK; and I've never had any problems with the motherboard before; and it froze maybe 5 times in its life.

Your advice would be much appreciated!
