Kindle Touch SSH access?

Hi guys,

Apologies for a new post on this, but I've tried searching the forums and I've been bothering geekmaster too much for his own good. Apologies for this irritating messages! The problem here is that my kindle could not successfully update to 5.1 and then got stuck at the diags screen. So what I did is follow the unbricking guide, and first flashboot the device to get mmcblk0p2 ssh on to it.

Then, in order to get mmcblk0p1 onto the touch, I learnt that I would have to gain SSH access to transfer it onto the other partition. Here lies the problem. While I have been able to install the NDIS drivers, and adjust the IP address of the connection to be a static 192.168.15.1, and at the same time enable USBnet on my kindle in diags mode, when I try to use putty.exe to connect to the kindle, I get the "connection refused" dialogue. What am I doing wrong, and if so, what steps do I need to take? I apologise, I am running windows 7, and I really need some hand holding down to root ssh access.

Diags menu N) U) Z) X) wait 30 seconds, then connect with Putty. Login is root, passwd is mario.

The root drive is diags. To mount and repair main, do

mnt /dev/mmcblk0p3 /mnt/mmc

then fix stuff inside /mnt/mmc (which will be / when boot to main).

To boot to main type:

idme -d --bootmode main
rm /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS
sync
reboot


This is documented many times in the debricking threads (and the first post).

That is the "kindle tree" screen shown at 600x800 instead of 608x800 (normal for starting diags) but it should not hang here (unless the battery is discharged).

WHY did you flash the diags partition on a K4? It has fastboot built into the FACTORY diags partition. The diags with SSH you can download is for the K5 (touch), which is why it is hanging when starting diags. Now you need to flash a diags partition for a K4...

I had two kindle 4's in that condition. What I discovered was that leaving a kindle in diagnostics mode will drain the battery so low it will not reboot past the "twisted kindle tree" screen. I was ONLY able to recharge them in fastboot mode.

Try using MfgTool to go to fastboot mode and just leave them there for several hours, then try flash a K4 diags partition to it...
