I would go as far as saying that even piping via SSH should work. So that would trim down to just doing
ssh root@KINDLE dd of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 bs=4k < mmcblk0p1.img
on the host PC.
I suspect that you will need to quote the remote command since it has whitespace in it: "dd of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 bs=4k"
And of course, the: root@KINDLE can be trimmed back to a single "shortcut" name with a "host identity" stanza in your ~/.ssh/config
Which would also allow you to speed up the authentication process by setting a single key for ssh client to use, rather than trying everything it can get its hands on.
