So I Bricked my Kindle Fire…And Got it Back Again

Filed under: Uncategorized — Joe Casella @ 9:02 pm

I was growing tired of the Kindle Fire’s Carousel and decided to try a new launcher. Without doing my homework, I downloaded and installed the Ice Cream Sandwich Launcher.  My Fire got stuck in an endless loop at launch, with an error screen that said:

"Sorry, the ics 4.0 application launcher (process android.process.acore) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."

I tried the steps in this helpful thread, but they didn’t solve the problem (it’s definitely worth checking out, though). I finally gave up and decided to restore my Fire to factory settings as described in this blog post. It worked perfectly, the first time. 

When I lunched the Fire after the restore I had to register again and reconnect to my wireless network.  All of my books and documents were still there, but the applications needed to be downloaded again from the cloud. I also had to reinstall the Nook reader I discussed in my earlier post.

I’m glad to have everything working again, but I’d rather have spent the evening playing Skyrim…
