If you have problems, unplug the kindle and turn it off... start KFU and go to the select boot mode screen and choose how you want it to boot up, when you plug the kindle in after this it will start up and KFU should easily detect it and boot it into whatever mode you selected.
I found it's actually very difficult to actually brick the thing.
OK, well I've ran into another problem. I tried putting a jelleybean rom on it. it's and the screen has spining triangles on half the screen the other half is blank. I don't know what to do.
Edit- the bottom of the triangle is blue it flips over and the tops red, and the sides are yellow.
