In case your PW got "bricked" / stuck in Diags Exit please use serial port

My PW3 was "bricked" aka stuck in Muscat_WCF diagnostics and with some fiddling ended up with Diags "please use serial port" message (perma ultra stuck).


Here is a solution that works:

Just a heads up so you don't lose 3-4 hours sifting through 1000x of useless threads and suggestions where some people recommend sending your device back to amazon, opening your kindle, changing your battery etc.


It takes like 5 minutes to install virtual box so give it a shot. Kubrick probably works, too - however it's confusing since it's mentioned 100x that it DOESN'T work with paperwhites , so...

Kubrick only works on the devices mentioned in its title.
Translation: It does not work on any touchscreen device EXCEPT the original Kindle Touch.

Did you add this thread to the Master Index?
How about the thread you mention (you should edit that so the link works), did you add that thread to the Master Index?

If not both of the above, then congratulations, you have created another 'useless thread' (impossible to find).
Translation: You are part of the problem, not part of the solution.
