Apologies for my ignorance, but I also do not follow these instructions:

In fastboot mode, do:
gunzip mmcblk0p2.img.gz
sudo ./fastboot flash diags mmcblk0p2.img

is fastboot and executable on the kindle? and if so, how do I mount the kindle when it is in fastboot mode to access this?

Millions of thanks again for all your efforts here.
When you plug in a kindle in fastboot mode, it shows up as a device with USB VID/PID 0x1949/0xD0D0. Also, the fastboot program should report its serial number when you do "fastboot getvar serial". If using linux fastboot, you need to run it as root.

There is a windows fastboot now too, which does not need the "sudo ./" at the front of the fastboot command. The windows version needs the libusb-win32 device drivers installed before it can see the kindle (otherwise you only see "< waiting for device >").

You can set fastboot mode from the diags exit menu (install fastboot bundle option).
