Unhappy Kindle Paperwhite gen1 bootloops

I've just reset my paperwhite gen1 and go to jb it. However I mis-see the Update_jailbreak_1.15.N_uninstall.bin as an installation file.
Then, reboot it...
The device keeps freeze & reboot on the 'man under a tree'.

Now I plug in usb the device is not shown. Any way to remove the .bin??

Just to confirm, not that it makes any difference: you did try to run the update via "Update Your Kindle" first, right, you did not reboot with a custom .bin file in there?

(In any case, the factory updater will murder the file with prejudice, so, that, on its own, can't be the explanation behind the current state. Just a coincidence).

If you've watched it crash & burn a few times, it'll eventually shutdown on the "Your Kindle Needs Repair" screen. If it doesn't, that means something weirder is happening very early in the boot process.

In any case, if it crashes early enough, you're probably SoL unless you open it up for serial access.

(Also, moved this to the Dev subforum).
