Help! KT bricked in a new way!

I was messing with the password entry strings in /usr/share/webkit-1.0/pillow/strings/password (not exact file name). Now the password entry screen is not showing up and my device is bricked.

I used the USB HID thing to gain ssh access.
Just give me the contents of that file

Best solution will be probably some manually disabling of Kindle password.
But I don't think anyone know, how to disable it without access to framework.
Did you try to delete this messed up file? You can do this over ssh.

Do you have backup of your mmcblk0p1?
You could restore it over RUNME or ssh in worst case.

Don't have backup, but can you tell me the exact filename and give it to me? Small js file. And please be quick!

I'm sorry, but it seems K4NT has different system in passwords.
Maybe delete content of /var/local could help.

You can download backup of mmcblk0p1 here

For this thread, but relates to the threads about changing to a true read-only base file system plus one or more read-write overlays;

The space on flash required to store the base file systems:
Code:
mszick@core2quad /bun1/Builds/Kindle/k4nt $ ls -l
total 462188
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mszick mszick 367001600 2012-03-02 06:56 mmcblk0p1.img
-r--r--r-- 1 mszick mszick 105803776 2012-03-02 06:56 mmcblk0p1.sfs
I.E: A real, read-only base system and a 250Mbyte read-write overlay would easily fit in the same sized flash partition.

Someone with a working kindle 5.0.3, please ssh and do:
Code:
mntroot rw
cp /usr/share/webkit-1.0/pillow/strings/password_dialog_strings.js /mnt/us
Then give me the file in the usb drive. Please.
Update: Just found out that I accidentally deleted the contents of that file. Please give me the file.

See attachment.
Do you asking, how I got this file?
I have downloaded backup from internet and then extracted it.
I hope you haven't leave yet.

EDIT: I think it was late. But I can't post it sooner because of downloading that image...
