Errm... which OTHER ssh-enabled diags image did you try before?
There are only 5.0.* diags with ssh for download.

Another classic case of PEBKAC...?

The demo shit is off and I have full control of the kindle.

I just want to thank you all for putting up with my dumbass. I probably asked a lot of dumb questions and probably need a dummies guide for fixing a kindle.

If you're booted in diags, just

- copy the main image to the kindle via ssh (if you haven't copied it there before)
-then execute something along these lines:
Code:
dd if=/mnt/us/mmcblk0p1.img of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 bs=4K
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk0p3 bs=4K
idme -d --bootmode main
rm /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS; sync; reboot
(ok, Stea1th was faster)

... and now that you've gone through it the hard way, you will see that the next time you have to do this procedure (if ever), it will be a piece of cake

Nobody here will give you advice about that topic. Yes, we're hackers, but we're not antisocial abusers.

Yes, but do not do it. That behavior is what may have contributed to the 50MB/month cap in Canada and other non-US and non-UK locations. Also, the site rules do not allow giving details or links to details here. We do not like such discussions here because abusing amazon in that way is likely to get future kindles even more locked down.

However, there is a lot of cool stuff in the forum. Start at the Master Index sticky thread and check out the linked index wikis, and the things that they link to. There is a lot of other cool stuff in this forum waiting to be indexed too.

@Stea1th: Can the demo kindle be registered to amazon? I've bought a lot of those to replace the software on them like you did, and I'd like to know if there are issues with registration. Does it work?
