Not so odd - check the date on the Kubrick post.
It was created before Amazon went to TLS-only on their servers.
Updating to a newer version of firmware includes the newer SSL/TLS certificate files.

Thanks once again for your help. My Kindle 4 is back to life!!!

Running Kubrick in a VM (I couldn't find another way), it got me to change the frozen screen to the initial one with the tree and the loading bar. That was just after doing the key combination to put the Kindle in USB Download mode, although it never seemed to complete that step and couldn't progress any further.

I left it like that for a few days as I went away. When I came back last night, I charged the Kindle. This morning I simply switched it on once charged... and everything fine.

I had fully charged it just before using Kubrick, but I guess switching it on and off a few times and trying Kubrick for 2 days drove it a bit crazy.

Thanks for your help. And no, Amazon, I don't want a discount for a new Kindle.

It happened that my KT got into frozen state. Tried a reset first and Kindle started to reboot (boy under a tree and progress bar) but after that screen went blank and no button actions helped from that. I charged my KT over night and tried Kubrick - the only strange thing I noticed was that instead of turning green, the amber LED just turned off when - I suppose - it got fully charged.
"So time to Kubrick" I thought and that's why I'm here
I think I did everything just according the instructions:
- physical machine (oldie-but-goldie T42)
- boot Kubrick 3.6 from USB
- selected Kindle 5 (Touch)
- followed the instructions up to "Put your Kindle into USB downloader mode and now:

pressed power and hold until LED's off, simultaneously pressed and hold Home button, released power (led went on) and released Home. Nothing changed on kindle nor on screen so I pressed Next.
On the following screen "Putting device into Fastboot mode" there's "waiting for device..." and it waits forever.
Is there anything else I can do or my Kindle is dead once and for all?

Thanks in advance

Greg

Hi Greg,

I have gone recently through a similar ordeal with my Kindle 4. I just tried the programme once and again and got stuck at the same point as you.

After trying many times for a couple of days, I didn't touch the Kindle for 3 days. When I got back to it, it was in need of charging, which I did... and then it worked again. At the beginning the ink was a bit faint and it took longer tan usual turning pages, but after a few days it is running like new.

I'm afraid no tech advice from me, but encouragement for patience and perseverance.

Good luck ;-)

Hi,

I'm trying to use Kubrick to unbrick my Kindle K3; but it's not working and as far as I can see the kindle isn't getting into fastboot mode; its remaining in 'SE Ringo BLANK' mode throughout.

Any help would be appreciated.

S.

Its junk, sell it as spare parts.
(A well know failing of the K3 that no one has ever solved.)
