Very sure, yes. I put in BOTH partitions identical content in /usr/local - consisting of a "dropbearmulti" binary, several symlinks to it and an RSA-key in the "etc" subdirectory. For the Main-partition, everything is and stays Ok - for the Diags-partition, all three subdirectories get "at some point" lost. Still need to figure out when exactly - but it must be somewhere between leaving Diags and restarting into Main. (Since while still in Diags, I can use the SSH-login... After booting to Main, the files are gone)

***** looking through "my" diags-partition *****
  • data.tar.gz won't work due to changed "/etc/upstart/userstore" - also it seems to be planned for future firmwares to not work in main-mode, though "something new" might work even then. Seems like packages or "bundles" need to be signed at some point... We'll see when or if it happens.
  • haven't yet found anything that points to deletion of /usr/local/ ...
  • mntus.params is in principle in the same location, but has (at least) two more parameters, which might not be necessary as long as the FAT32-partition already exists.

Not yet very helpful, but all I can do without going a couple times per SSH into the Kindle and rebooting a few dozen times. Will try that in a few days, I guess.
