The only way to get out of diags mode is to ssh into it (assuming that it actually *is* an SSH-enabled diags partition!), and to issue "idme -d --bootmode main; reboot".
Can anybody confirm this? If so, is anybody willing to take a look at this, possibly coming up with a revised (probably even final) version of the jailbreak?
After doing some of the tests in diagnostics, the file is created. I don't remember exactly which tests but I was able to exit. (This has also happened to me some time ago when I played with the diags the first time after getting my Kindle.)
PS: I have successfully jailbroken my 5.1 Kindle. Thanks!
