You must reboot before new values will take effect
Running "reboot" over the SSH console at this step has successfully managed to get the Kindle to shut down and reboot.
Once again, thank you.
Other than that, with regards to your last comment: There are no hacks installed on this Kindle; at least not yet. ;-)
device.info.xml is normally used to change idme settings from an xml file, in a different diags menu item. Perhaps it was confused because you already changed the idme bootmode var manually, after which you should also remove /mnt/us/ENABLE diags if that exists, and then you SHOULD do the reboot command.
The "Disable Diagnostics" menu item does not work right if you change the idme var bootmode var manually like I suggested.
"Once again, thank you" seems to imply that your kindle works now, but you did not implicitly state whether it works or still cannot boot to the main system framework.
Question: Is your kindle working now?
