In the README to ixtab´s debricking package, that I was pointed to via PM and which is also referenced here, from the debricking guide
, it says (my emphasis added)
THE EASIEST WAY TO USE THESE FILES
1. While your Kindle is *STILL WORKING*, make sure that you install the diags partition
with SSH. This is as simple as installing the jailbreak, then installing the update_*.bin
package mentioned above (using the Settings -> Update your Kindle menu entry).
