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.
I tried to access with ssh, but connection is refused (over usb0). I feel there is chicken and egg issue: how can I enter fastboot mode without ssh connection, when enabling ssh would require fastboot.
Anyway, I do not want to hijack your thread, so I will discuss these difficulties on another one.
