Well, technically it's neither a script nor is it from me
I've only made very minor modifications to the source provided by yifanlu to get it working with a k3 already running 3.3.

You should use the bin file from 2.5.8. It's probably possible to use newer images also, but that may need some modifications.

The package generated on the k3 is always a full recover package for the k2. You can use it for up and downgrades.
(Also be handy if you bricked the kindle. Should be usable to revover it as long as the recovery menu still works. But never needed that...)
That's also the reason it factory resets the kindle. The complete OS partition will be overwritten. It will keep books, through. They are on another partition.
