kindle 4NT freezed in "Tequila System Diags" screen

Last night I was trying to install Duokan 2012 on the device without too much luck. Something went wrong in my procedure and the device suddenly stopped working.

For the sake of clarity, in case that somebody could help me were, my steps were these:

1- Downloaded the file from the site

File Size:62.1MB
Suitable Models:kindle 4

2 - somewhere in youtube I've found a procedure...
First, I unzipped the content of the file in the root directory of Kindle which was mounted as a Memory device.
I could see the file ENABLE_DIAGS in the directory, which would enable the diagnostics mode in the following reset.

3 - I selected RESTART in the system menu.
After the firt reboot, an application "Tequila System Diags" was opened.

4 - after navigating up and down in this application, I noticed that the Kindle suddenly stopped working. I don't know how, it freezed showing the menu option as the last screen displayed.

I tried to press power button for 20 seconds, trying to restart the unit.
I can't get the kindle mounted as a memory device, (with the intention of delete the files I've copied).
I have Windows XP. Sometimes it appears a Kindel device, in the Device Manager but needing drivers to work

Any suggestions to recover it?

Thank you very much in advance.

Kindle Debricked!!

I am so happy I could leave the freezed screen (now I know that Kindle was in fastboot Mode).

I followed the steps in this forum:
fastboot for win32,

except that in the steps (written by Poetcop) I omit running step
fastboot flash diags mmcblk0p2_ssh.img [from the first post in this thread]
because I thought that the partition was Safe.
Following the capture of the Console in Windows XP

C:\kindle\fastboot_win_public>fastboot setvar bootmode diags
setting 'bootmode' to 'diags'...
bootmode diags:
finished. total time: 0.016s

C:\kindle\fastboot_win_public>fastboot reboot

finished. total time: 0.000s

Thank you very much to all the experts in this forum for sharing priceless information for the benefits of all.
Good luck!
