Does it work when you use only the first 8 characters (fionaXXX with 3 hex digits)? Standard default root passwords use a DES hash (which allows you to type extra random characters past 8, but they are ignored).
Is it the standard fionaXXX as shown on the "kindle password" web page after you supply your serial number (all uppercase)?
If the password generation algorithm has changed, we want to know so we can update it. Thanks.
