I'm trying to bring back my Kindle Fire (5th Gen) back from the dead. Apparently you don't want to let the battery run dead...

@goz oof. I ran my older-model Kindle right down a while back; I did eventually breathe life back into it, but it was a huge pain.

@silvermoon82 Blog post coming... Once I tracked down the firmware and the adb tools, restoring was pretty painless.

It's weird that letting the battery die for months would cause such issues.
