I do not think there is a way for you to access the true root of the filesystem with only the Amazon Stock software installed.

The threads you read here about reading/writing the system sections of the filesystem are using either one of the maintenace tools or one of the "hacks" that give access to the root of the filesystem.

So I don't think you will be able to (directly) make a dmg of the Kindle's filesystem.
But you can make copies of it, details are in the threads listed by GM.
