For flashing, drivers and main partition I have used the files linked to guide. I have tried under linux VM - and got the same result "ssh firstname.lastname@example.org - timed out".
Any advice will be deeply apreciated.
You need to manually set the Windows RNDIS networking device IP address to 192.168.15.201. You cannot use an automatically assigned IP address because the kindle is not running a DHCP server.
