Same here, only fastboot seems to work within Mfg Tool (run in Win XP in VBox), at which point the KT disappears from the list of USB devices visible to the guest OS.
It does not subsequently show in my Linux host - as per my dmesg output here:
Alas, your alternative method using a RUNME.sh with a dd command also has not worked for me. The Kindle just reboots back to the repair screen.
