To a point. The part that I don't get is this part:
Follow the instructions in the "Select Boot" thread to get your bricked kindle into fastboot mode.
In fastboot mode, do:
sudo ./fastboot flash diags mmcblk0p2.img
I don't know how to "get my bricked kindle into fastboot mode". After that, everything else makes sense.

I haven't reviewed the fastboot for mac/windows source code but I assume it contains some sort of magic to figure out what device the kindle is using.
Most of the command examples I've seen seem to just have fastboot cmd something with no indication of device location or name.
