    Hopefully I can get a faster response from here but I'm trying to install the 2nd Bootloader to my Amazon Kindle 2nd Gen (This information is important), but every method I've tried doesn't seem to work. This is with a downgraded Kindle to version 10.2.3 from 10.4.3. Is there possibly a video that can do a step by step instructions or at least someone who has done this before explain what have I done wrong?

    Tried the "app" after rooting and downgrading and I still get a red screen after reboot and tried the Long Version and can't get "stacks" to install into the device. The cmd keeps putting out "Can't find file directory" or something like that.

    I do have ADB set up and on windows. And not too sure what is a "signed stock bootloader" as I think I have already done that. Is there a link to one? Many times when I try to flash another bootloader, I get the message saying something like file is too big.

    Ok, well, look into the fastboot method. I think that's your only chance, as noted by some of the other replies on that thread you posted.

    Ok, now I see your problem, it can't find the stack override file.

    Is this where you get stuck?

    Code:
    adb push stack /data/local/tmp/
    adb shell su -c "dd if=/data/local/tmp/stack of=/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.1/by-name/system bs=6519488 seek=1"

    That is because you're in the wrong directory. Let's figure out where you are, type in "ls".

    And then tell us where you have the stack file.

    I have it in my "downloads folder" and one in "platform-tools" if that helps.

    Ok, try typing "ls" and tell me the what it lists.

    Hashcode told me that you should keep it at 10.2.3 as the bootloader is specifically for it.

    In CMD? In CMD it says "'Is' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file."

    The "ls" command gives you a list of files/directories in your current directory. In my case:

    Code:
    Applications	Documents	Library		Music		Public
    Desktop		Downloads 		 Movies		Pictures
    If I could get that info, then I could tell you that you need to:

    Code:
    cd Downloads
    Which would take you into that folder so that the file could be located. Or, I'd just tell you to change:

    Code:
    adb push stack /data/local/tmp/
    To:

    Code:
    adb push /Downloads/stack /data/local/tmp/
    Sounds more confusing than it is.

    So I did

    Code:
    adb push /Downloads/stack /data/local/tmp/
    And the result was

    Code:
    cannot stat '/Downloads/stack': No such file or directory[CODE]
    
    Also the Is command doesn't do anything for me.
