  • Connected Kindle to PC, placed file in drive root, safely removed, unplugged USB cable, home > menu > settings > menu > update > confirmed
  • Kindle flickers a bunch, reboots a bunch, then settles on "Your Kindle Needs Repairing"

During boot loop USB is accessible short-term; any suggestions or am I SOL?
Create a DO_FACTORY_RESTORE file on root of USB when it mounts. Reboot a few times after. Probably should have more warnings in the guide as downgrading may prove to be a risky procedure.
