These CRC failure messages reported by fastboot are normal for kindles. You can generally ignore them. One reason is that the CRC is stored in the flash header, but when the kindle changes the contents of these partitions by booting from them or doing updates on them, it does not adjust the CRC stored in the flash header, which makes the fastboot check function report false errors.

The kindles use a Lithium Ion battery, which is supposed to be discharged to only 40% capacity (but no more than 70%) for shipping or long term storage, for maximum life. The diagnostics will discharge the battery (negative charging current) to get the voltage down to a safe shipping level. This is NOT normally something you want to do after you put a kindle into service.

My testing shows that kindles charge best in fastboot mode.
