Then the kindle was detected on win XP as a RNDIS(?) network device.
I installed the drivers etc, and got a new network connection.
However, I still get the error (Fata Error: Connection refused) in Putty for both SSH & Telnet connections.
All firewalls are disabled, and no anti-virus is installed.
Tried with Kindle-wifi disabled, and used the same subnet mask on PC & Kindle.
Still can't connect.
Am able to ping the kindle's ip though1
Tried to disable diagnostics, and got an error "device_info.xml not found: Plz check your settings"
PLz advise, how do I get out of this mess ?
1) Preferably enable SSH, change the screensaver, and restore to normal.
2) Disable diagnostics and revert to normal, without changing screensaver.
Tx a lot!
The diags "Enable USBnet" does not enable USBnet until you press X) to exit from that menu. Then it takes about 20 seconds for the USB network to initialize before you can use it. Did you exit? Menu selections in diags are N) U) Z) X).
It works AFTER installing the mmcblk0p2_SSH.img from the SelectBoot first post.
The factory diags partition is missing the dropbear files needed for SSH, but even without those missing files the kindle is pingable (but no SSH).
