Thank you both!

In the last episode I managed (with some help) to connect the kindle to the pc... but my brain must have gotten disconnected in the process

What we were looking at was the output after a "normal boot"

I just had to keep holding the power switch a little longer (I got fooled by the blinking led) and this is the output after a "hard reset"

Code:
U-Boot 1.3.0-rc3-lab126 (Feb  5 2011 - 19:03:59)

CPU:   Freescale i.MX35 at 532 MHz
Board: MX35 Luigi [ POR]
WDOG_WCR = 0xff31
WDOG_WMCR = 0x0
Board Id: SP1B000000000000
S/N: B008XXXXXXXXXXXX
DRAM:  256 MB
Using default environment

In:    serial
Out:   serial
Err:   serial
No ethernet found.
i.MX35 CPU board version 2.0
Net:   No ethernet found.
Hit any key to stop autoboot:  0
## Booting image at 87f40400 ...
   Image Name:   Linux-2.6.26-rt-lab126
   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)
   Data Size:    2166568 Bytes =  2.1 MB
   Load Address: 80008000
   Entry Point:  80008000
   Verifying Checksum ... OK
   Loading Kernel Image ... OK

Starting kernel ...

Uncompressing Linux.............................................................

boot: C def:bcut:batterycut=1:
2.6.26-rt-lab126 #5 Sat Feb 5 19:05:05 PST 2011 armv6l
INFO:Using default keypad setting. (not passing "kb_rev" to module)
INFO:Loaded module /lib/modules/mxc_keyb.ko  (22508 bytes)
Press [ENTER] for recovery menu...       0 /
INFO:Partition table verified for /dev/mmcblk0
INFO:Loaded module /lib/modules/eink_fb_hal.ko  (73284 bytes)
[...]
Now if I understand correctly I should hit enter to access the recovery menu then select 3 and then enter my fiona password (that should be obtainable with md5sum -s=S/N and cutting off 3 or 4 digits Wrong! Working on it.), etc.
Ok, one step at a time... back to studying and experimenting and let's hope my brain is connected this time around (finger crossed )

All jokes aside I'm really sorry to have wasted your time.

Nothing. That is called "being human" I guess?

That sounds cool but... happy? I'm not sure
...and, might I add, the most unlikely part of what you've written is me sitting in a lotus position I'm so rigid sometimes I think I'm dead and I didn't noticed yet
