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.
