Fastboot stuck at waiting for device [linux]

I'm tryiong to debrick my kindle 4 NT and got it into fastboot mode. I'm working on ubuntu and lsusb shows the device as 1949:d0d0 Lab126.

However, when I issue the fastboot command to flash the diag partition, it gets stuck into waiting for device. One point to note is that 'fastboot devices' does not return any result, so the device is not probably recognized by fastboot.

You **MUST** be 'root' to access device hardware!

sudo fastboot ... whatever ...

Yep, got it sorted. Was actually another issue.

Ubuntu and many other linux distributions have fastboot in their repositories, but apparently that implementation does not work with kindle. The fastboot command I was giving was passed to the system fastboot command and it could not handle the kindle. Once I got kindle specific fastboot script, it worked like a charm.

BTW, I am having another problem right now. My kindle is a 3g version, and it had strong signal in my home. But since debricking it, 3g signal is always at 0 bars. Not that it renders the kindle useless, but it's kinda annoying.
