Is it necessary to flash the origional mmcblk0p2 in order to make a successful update to 5.0.4?

I do not think that the update changes (or cares about) mmcblk0p2. The version with SSH does not have any changes except adding missing files, so should not be a problem.

It is possible that the previous update attempt failed because the partition and kernel did not match, but left the partition in an unstable condition. This latest failed update may have changed the kernel and/or main partition, so you should flash a new 5.0.0 kernel, and use "dd" to copy a new 5.0.0 main partition to /dev/mmcblk0p1. Then perhaps run a "factory_reset" script to erase any residual /var/local settings that might interfere with an update.

In my case, I was able to successfully update to 5.0.4 after flashing a fresh 5.0.0 kernel and using "dd" to copy the "forensic" 5.0.0 main partition image, so you should be able to do that too...

can the factory_reset be done by dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk0p3 bs=4K count=8184 ?

Perhaps your count="8184" value is too high (but it *should* work anyway). You only need enough to make the partition unmountable. Try "count=1024" instead. That is what I used.

Test your kindle with a fresh 5.0.0 kernel and main partition. Reboot multiple times BEFORE trying to install the update.

If that does not work, perhaps your update file is damaged. Try downloading it from amazon again and install the new update file. It worked for me, so it should work for you.

After 3 efforts getting my KT unbricked, I have to ask ...

Got it in diags mode
all commands done and I got back to 5.0, so far fine

but:
restart causes the KT being bricked again ...

as mentioned, three times, any hints?

Did you flash the 5.0.0 linux kernel using fastboot? You may need matching kernel and partition.

Not yet, is this to be done in fastboot or is ssh possible as well?

Have read through a hell of post, don't want to annoye you by being lazy, but could not find the commands to flash the kernel ...

BTW, factory reset from 5.0 went through, restarted, but a follow on restart led to the same situation, sitting under a tree ...


UPDATE: should have gone reading backwards ... on page 10 it is, fastboot is missing libusb0.dll to run, make.bat does not solve it .. continue to learn

Finally i have start a diag mode, dd'ed partition 1 to 5.0.0 and how after reboot i have a same problem like diba, is it necessary to update kernel to 5.0.0 if i has a 5.0.1 before? and which metod i must use "fastboot flash" or dd? if a set by "idme -d --bootmode ..."which boot mode must be set "normal" or "main"?


update: diba looks like we must use

fastboot flash kernel kernel-5.0.0.img

but i stiil looking how to backup it before flash

Obviously.
I had to stop now, had the mmcblk0p1 on my mnt/us ... and was stupid enough to go to factory reset without having a copy on my laptop. My 3G is too slow and has only 500 MB / p / month so no use trying it via HotSpot now.

So I will continue later on back home ...

@Geekmaster: loading kernel and mmcblk0p1 from the pastebin page makes sure, I have the correct versions for both, I assume .
