- enable usbnetwork and log in via SSH.
- run showlog -f
- On the device, choose Menu > Settings, Menu > Update your Kindle.
This allowed me to follow the update progress both on the Kindle itself, as well as the messages it left in the logs.
No guarantees, but as said it worked for me, so you may want to give it a shot.
Nice and useful idea, but no luck.
Once I hit the "Continue" button, I just get its press in the logs and then the screen goes black and the ssh down:
