Failed Serial Jailbreak

So My New not referbished kindle PW3 is on fresh out of amazon with updates blocked from the beginning. I tried the serial port jailbreak with pins and was successful. then failed when it came to putty (maybe i damaged the serial connectors with the pins?) Putty was working and got to change my kindle's screen then stopped (pin got loose), verified all settings are correct, on COM5, but pin got loose and couldn't get putty to work again. so Now What? I'm terrible at soldering so that option is out. I bought NEW FTDI TTL-232RG-VREG1V8-WE CABLE USB SERIAL 1.8V WIRE 100MA, WGGE WG-026 10 Pieces and 5 Colors Test Lead Set & Alligator Clips, 20.5 inches, and 1pc 4"x7 3/4" Desco High-Density Anti-Static Foam; Conductive ESD IC Insertion. Don't know what to do now.
