OK, I bricked it...shame on me

Good night!
I bricked my Kindle playing with /etc/upstart files. I know, I'm a real stupid!
I edited the dbus.conf file and now I'm stuck at the "under the tree" image.
I can enter in diagnostic mode (thanks Geekmaster!!), I can mount USB and drop files in it.
I also have a backup copy of that file, but I don't manage to replace it.

Here's what I'm doing:
in diagnostic mode, I select USB device mode, than open my Kindle USB drive.
I drop data.tar.gz, dbus.conf and this RUNME.sh:

Code:
test -f /mnt/us/RUNME.done && exit
# The following set of commands will be executed (in the context of your Kindle) exactly once. To make them execute again, remove RUNME.done
#
# (mntroot rw and mntroot ro below are only shown for convenience, and not needed for this particular script. These commands allow
# to modify the internal file system. Use only if you know what you are doing. Oh well, you should have only ended up needing this advice
# if you knew what you were doing in the first place. ;-)
mntroot rw
mv -f /mnt/us/dbus.conf /etc/upstart/dbus.conf
mntroot ro
touch /mnt/us/RUNME.done
Than, I close USB device mode, reboot the Kindle but I don't find the RUNME.done in USB drive.

Any help?
