This does assume that your Kindle is mounting as a drive so you can copy a file to it.

Edit: since you can't attach a file with a blank attachment, I zipped the file and then attached the .zip file to this message. Extract DO_FACTORY_RESTORE from the .zip file and copy to your Kindle in the root of the exposed storage.
Thanks mate. In fact I did just that yesterday, first trying as DO_FACTORY_RESTORE.aws, and then once more without the file extension. Made the file first with notepad then first changed the extension, and then removed it. Neither version worked. I'll give her another go doing it the way you said. Thanks, fellow Canadian...

Tried it a few more times, no joy.

You state: Copy that file to the root of your Kindle's exposed storage, safely eject and then restart your Kindle.

Just to be clear, E:\Kindle is where it goes, yes...??
