Device: kindle paperwhite
Unhappy After activating fast boot mode of my kindle paperwhite screen frozen forever

Hallo, got my kindle paperwhite with 3.5.1 firmware. Jailbraked it and went to the diags screens.

Activated fastboot mode from misc menu.

As soon as i did it the device got frozen. can not bring it to life.

Tried holding power button for 20 seconods: no effect

When connected to usb device led is burning orange.

when holding in this state power button: led switches of after 20 seconds and switches back on again when i release the power button.

screen is not chaning at all, only showing diags menu all the time...


dmesg shows:
[ 8139.920108] usb 1-2: new high-speed USB device number 21 using ehci_hcd
[ 8140.053117] usb 1-2: New USB device found, idVendor=1949, idProduct=d0d0
[ 8140.053129] usb 1-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3

[ 8140.053146] usb 1-2: Manufacturer: Amazon
[ 8140.053153] usb 1-2: SerialNumber: <some number>

when i hold button for 20 seconds i get
[ 9406.189677] usb 1-2: USB disconnect, device number 24


and when release the button
9609.660181] usb 1-2: new high-speed USB device number 25 using ehci_hcd
[ 9609.793213] usb 1-2: New USB device found, idVendor=1949, idProduct=d0d0

[ 9609.793238] usb 1-2: Product: Kindle
[ 9609.793247] usb 1-2: Manufacturer: Amazon
[ 9609.793256] usb 1-2: SerialNumber:


the screen is frozen on the diags screens. thats all.

Is this a special mode activated? how to deactivate it?

fastboot mode does not use the eink screen, so it will show whatever was last on it before changing to fastboot mode.

To get out of fastboot mode, you can temporarily boot to any mode with MfgTool. See the "select boot" thread for details.

To change the boot mode, you can use the fastboot tool, or you can use the idme command from a diags SSH command shell.

I am curious why you switched your kindle to fastboot mode if you do not understand how to use it or how to get back out of fastboot mode.

There is more information regarding fastboot in the select boot thread, the fastboot manifesto thread, and the simple debricking thread.

^what gm said, except that MfgTool (or imx_usb_loader, if you're on Linux) is useless for the Paperwhite - these tools operate on the "USB downloader mode" (yes, that's yet another mode) which can't be entered on the Paperwhite.

Use the fastboot tool.

PS, and SCNR: Yes, this will hopefully teach you to be careful with what you do.

Master index sticky -> Tools Index -> Debricking, Fastboot.

How to use it left as an exercise to you.

Well, no. The solution would have been to use the fastboot tool to get the Kindle out of fastboot mode.

So, just to make sure that I'm understanding this right: you toyed around in the menu of diagnostic mode, without knowing or even caring to know what you were doing, got stuck, and then sent the device back to Amazon for a replacement?

Congratulations. This is one of the reasons why Amazon tries to lock down their devices - because they have to pay for a replacement which is entirely due to user stupidity. Maybe you shouldn't have jailbroken your device in the first place.



(sorry for being explicit, but this mentality really pi^wannoys me.)
