It was just a tip. If in your version is fastboot mode physically present, it should work, but if it's not present, you just could be able to ssh over diags.

And I maybe gave you bad link, because I don't know, which firmware version you have.
If you will do that sometime in future, just go to:
http://gitbrew.org/~dasmoover/kindle/touch/forensic/
and download proper file according to you firmware version.

Thanks a lot.

A question about your fastboot GUI / fastboot command line: is it suppose to make the kindle switch to fastboot mode? Or do you have to use MfgTool under Windows for that anyway, before one can use the fastboot program?

over fastboot by "fastboot.exe setvar bootmode fastboot",
but in this case you would have to have Kindle in fastboot mode.
But you can change the bootmode over ssh too with following commands:

idme -d --bootmode fastboot
sync
reboot



You don't need to flash diags for ssh access, see wiki for way, how to connect over ssh in main mode.

A warning, that link is to a site that is missing a kernel for 5.0.0 -

You can see from the names that it has both the 5.0.0 'main' and 'diags' system images, but there is only one 5.0.0 kernel present.

There should be two kernels present - the main and the diags kernels are different.

I tried to access with ssh, but connection is refused (over usb0). I feel there is chicken and egg issue: how can I enter fastboot mode without ssh connection, when enabling ssh would require fastboot.

Anyway, I do not want to hijack your thread, so I will discuss these difficulties on another one.
