So to get backup/restore functionality on Kindle you'll need figure out how to do 3 things:
1) Find where main partition is stored on the flash chip and dump it to user accessible partition
2) Figure out how to convert it to binary update format
3) Figure out to to create updates that would install from rescue mode. No one was able to do it so far.

I know a little bit of linux but not enough to do all the things mentioned with reasonable effort.
Well that's all way over my head but I see the answer at this time is "no".

Thanks for responding.
