You are not wrong:
This order should work on all firmware versions.
Early firmwares, v-2 and v-3 may also work with the cable attached
- un-plug cable (if still plugged in)
- toggle USBnetwork ON in launcher
- plug the cable
- kill any automation (or configure yours to do: )
- sudo ip link set up dev usb0 (It may already be up)
- sudo ip address add 192.168.15.201 peer 192.168.15.244 dev usb0
- use the networking until your done (telnet 192.168.15.244)
- un-plug cable
- toggle USBnetwork OFF in launcher
That reference leaves you talking to the Kindle with telnet.
If not using the new launcher, then toggle USBnetwork in whatever manner your machine supports.
