A log of some sort would indeed be very helpful, but it seems like it freezes before it even opens a log file...
That's not surprising. /var/local/log gets populated periodically by tinyrot or when you shutdown/reboot your Kindle.

The rest of /var is just a tmpfs filesystem that only lives in memory. That's why it's clean after a reboot.

I think if you get the bootup splash, you are already far enough into the boot process that syslog got started so you should find some stuff in /var/log. But only if you don't reboot

Try changing all references to /var/log/ in /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf to a directory in /var/local/.
