Not sure if I'm doing right,still not working.
My bad - I wasn't referencing the busybox version of hwclock,
but I see you figured out my mistake.
Now the hardware clock (whatever that is in a Kindle SoC) should keep the time between restarts.
May not fix the event recognition but at least fsck should no longer complain about the file system being out of date.
I was working off the observation that the problem only developed after hours or even days of use.
(Clock drift or other clock problems came first to mind.)
What else can change over "normal" operation of hours or days?
Some part of the filesystem "filling up"?
Check the filesystem usage with:
You may want to cut&paste the result, some areas will probably report 100% as their "normal" use, making the problem area hard to spot.
