how to unbrick my Kindle?

Hi all,
my kindle dx maybe bricked.
the original version 2.1.1(actually 2.1.1 + ufhack0.1 ), ufhack can be used to translate english into chinese
i use a friend of mine's restore.(he also give rootfs.img to me,but i dont know how to use it.)restore2.5.8-os
then my kindle dx stop at the screen"your kindle is starting up this can take a minute"
then, i use amazon's update_kindle_3.2.1 .it's still stop at the screen....
then, i use my friend's restore....
then, repeat the above action....

now ,my dx is still stop at that screen about three days...
I can enter 'Recovery Mode' by holding 'Home'
This then gives me a screen displaying the following:

"Your Device Is in Reovery Mode.To exit this mode, press the (R 4) key.
If you need to update your Kindle through Recovery Mode, please call Customer Service for rurther assisstance at 1-866-321-8851 or 1-206-266-0927. For UK customers, please call +44(0)800 496-2499."

In this mode I can access the document via USB and transfer files.

I'm worried about it
could someone Show me a way to sovle this problem ? thanks!

We have no idea here what that ufhack0.1 is or might have done to your Kindle.

But you should read our site's guidelines about duplicate postings.
Or translate this:
Do not double post.

Your friend is the only one who can support that and its use.
It did not come from this site.

Have your friend tell you how to use that rootfs.img
That is your only hope now to un-brick the device.
We can not help you with that, not at this website.

sorry,knc1.I did the wrong thing, but I don't know how to express my apologies.
i'm just a Middle school student,my friend is Net friend,he also dont know how to use.i can only rescue myself by this website.

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/arc.../t-188316.html

i just see this
"Recently I bricked my DX trying to update my old 2.1.1 firmware to something new. After few unsuccessful attempts to get rootfs.img for my DX (B004) on this forum I decided to go another way:

I downloaded torrent with 3.2.1 firmware hack for 2/DX, extracted rootfs.img and kernel using Kindletools and successfully loaded rootfs using dd. Then I flashed an uimage kernel from the same package (another update*.bin) using uboot console and Ymodem (prg_kernel_serial). After that I successfully started Kindle using bootm command.

So, if somebody has bricked Kindle 2/DX - probably 3.2.1 version is the best option. 3G and web browser works OK. The only problem with 3.2.1 is slow return from sleep mode (sometimes). Since now I don't use sleep at all, switching DX completely off (just holding slider for 5 sec).

PS: you will need a serial console to export MMC0 via USB and flash kernel via Y-Modem."

could u tell me ,which kindletools shoul i need to extracted kernel from 3.2.1 firmware??where could i download it ?? i even dont know its full name.
i think maybe this will help me
thanks a lot

Check the kernel your running, I seem to recall you posting that you reflashed the kernel.
The kernel version and build version **must** match the modules in the rootfs.img file.
The best thing to do is get a copy of the matching kernel from the source of the rootfs.img file you are using.

= = = =

dd does not work across devices, only on the same device.
so copy the source (if=) to usb storage before trying to copy it.
or
use some type of inter-machine transport (such as netcat) in the pipelined dd commands.

If I can talk some company into sending me to a trade fair, that might happen.
But otherwise, it has been more than a half century since I was last there.
