over fastboot by "fastboot.exe setvar bootmode fastboot",
but in this case you would have to have Kindle in fastboot mode.
But you can change the bootmode over ssh too with following commands:
idme -d --bootmode fastboot
You don't need to flash diags for ssh access, see wiki for way, how to connect over ssh in main mode.
