Unhappy Kindle Fire 2nd gen Hard Bricked

Ive rooted a few phones and tablets before and have never bricked a device (got close) until now. This kindle fire i believe is truly hard bricked. What happened was, I rooted it with the kindle fire utility, and when it rebooted it was stuck on the kindle fire logo screen. I let it run flat over night, and the next day it was still stuck. So i downloaded kindle unbrick utility to attempt to fix this and then it was in a bootloop and it is now in a hard brick state. power button is non responsive, unless charging, it will turn green then immediately to orange and stay that way. I like to think that nothing is unrecoverable, and im very determined to get this thing back up and running, even if it means taking the case off and flashing it with probes lol.. Ive been working on it for about a week now and I seem to have made things worse. So I'm hoping there's a genius out there that can help me bring life back into this thing.

You tried rooting a new kindle? What article did you read that said to use Kindle Utility? It might stay bricked for a while until someone actually has a chance to do something with the new kindle. Just because its a new version of the KF doesnt mean the rooting programs will work for that one. But thats why we learn lol. I'll try to look into it more later but for now, its a paperweight lol.

It was on xda, I realize what happened now. I was using a utility that was meant for the original fire. I hope amazon is nice to me.

Lol it happens. Everyone makes mistakes. Just like people have told me, read read, and read some more. Even when I think I know how to do something i'll look it up and read it from someone else. Dont tell Amazon what you did! If you tell them "yea i was trying to root my kindle" they'll just laugh and say enjoy your paperweight. lol. Im not sure how you would go about getting it replaced because if they look at it first and determine it was because you bricked it, i dont think they would replace it? I just woke up and im confusing myself haha.

From what I've read, this thread should root 2nd gen Kindle Fires [Root] Kindlefire 7HD & probably the other 2ndgen kindlefire - Amazon Kindle Fire - RootzWiki im sure within the next month or two someone will be able to come up with an unbrick program.
