With that being said, here's my issue;
Got a KF a couple days ago...
Yesterday, followed some online instructions to put GO Launcher EX on there to replace the carousel deal.
Followed instructions to the T.
Restarted. Got to "Choose your OS" screen (or whatever it precisely says...)
Picked GO... then it froze.
Now, when it restarts (yes, its the 30 second hard restart), it gets stuck on the Kindle Fire splash screen.
I have tried the above utilities.
I have hard restarted.
I have fully charged and ran the battery dry and tried again.
When I use the utilities, the problem is, my PC will not recognize the Kindle (it see's it as a removable storage device, but it doesn't click over to 'Kindle', and thus the utilities can't interact with the device itself, I suppose).
I've tried different USB ports and connecters (I have 2 regular kindles in the house, too). But I know all the peripherals work through cross-testing.
Essentially, what else can I do? (I got it from WalMart, and they're currently out of stock, so I can't return it till next week, but I'd like it fixed before then if possible)
Any help appreciated!
There is a couple of things that we would also need to know to help you out better and to fully be able to workout the situation easier. When you said that you followed some random instructions online which ones did you use? Did your kindle successfully get rooted when using the Kindle Fire Utility? Cuz the way you're making it kind of hard for us to know what you need to do without more information. You're being to vague with this whole problem. Tell us what the errors are when you get them and all that. Cuz we can't help you without knowing more details.
