So I'm having an issue with unbricking my kindle 3. I have a demo unit and tried to flash it using the wiki step-by-step method and I think I figured out what went wrong the first time I did it. The problem I'm having now is when i try to reflash the kernel and image it will start then fail saying "flash program failed: connection error". It seems to possibly be related to the fact that its not staying in bootstrap mode, I know this because when I go through the steps to put it in bootstrap it will allow it to start up again but then it fails shortly after. I'm hoping that it might be because my battery is low since the last flash I did I let run all night. Any info or advice that anyone can provide is very much appreciated!
