After a failed firmware, regained my Kindle4B by Kubrick.
But for some reason it is impossible to jailbrake. From the Kubrick menu, i choose the option "jailbrake", but jailbrake not work, because my Kindle is not installing third-party software (such as Coolreader, and i can not install russian language to device).

But when i try to jailbrake the usual way, which I used before (throw jailbrake files to internal memory Kindle and reboot device) device cant out of the "Diagnostic menu", because when i try to shut mode "disable diagnostics" appears: "pcbid does not match with DSN".

Tried many times, including in Kubrick did not choose the mode jailbrake, return the device to the "Factory reset" is still the same inscription: "pcbid does not match with DSN".

Help please.

This is caused by flashing a diags image from a different device that contains some reference to ids from that different device.
The good news is that with the latest jailbreak, you don't need to "Disable diagnostics" at all. It will be disabled by the jailbreak installer when it's finished.
Now you can enable "USB Device mode", copy the latest jailbreak and reboot Kindle (twice). The jailbreak will be (re)installed, diagnostics disabled and Kindle will reboot to main mode without human interaction.

Alternatively you can connect to Kindle via SSH and issue these commands to disable diagnostics:
Code:
rm /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS
idme -d --bootmode main
sync
reboot

If you recharged the Kindle on a wall charger for at least 20 hours before trying again:
Your battery has too little storage capacity to run the Kindle during the entire process.

If you did not recharge the Kindle on a wall charger for at least 20 hours before trying again:
DO THAT!

I have the same flashing issue as CeramicHammer.
I used Kubrick 3.4. I charged my Kindle 3 Keyboard 3G for 3 days on wall outlet before flashing (on my phone charger, but it works on my other Kindles). The orange light goes out after few hours of charging but I newer get green light. When I try to reset my Kindle after flashing, the orange light goes out and then comes back on when I release the switch. I'm suspecting hardware failure since the Kindle started to need resets with increasing frequency until it became completely bricked. My Kindle is stuck on a page of a book and never shows up on my computer. Before failing it had been jailbroken and wallpaper hack installed.
Does anyone want free Kindle keyboard brick for spares or closer inspection. I'm close to Amsterdam.

When I plug into the computer, sometimes it doesn't show up in device manager at all, other times it comes up as "SE blank RINGO". No amount of holding the powerswitch seems to make a difference.

I downloaded Kubrick 2.1 and put it on a USB stick. I boot into Kubrick just fine on multiple computers. I follow the instructions and the USB downloader mode check passes. At the Flashing Kernel prompt after a second or two, the status goes to "Device Ready". Does this mean the Kernel was flashed or that the Kernel is ready to be flashed? After leaving it at the screen for a few minutes, the Flashing Kernel status stays at "device ready" so I just hit next.

At the Flashing Main partition, the status says "Flashing Main partition 0%" and then immediately says "Flashing done". Obviously it isn't done because it is supposed to take hours. Any idea about what my problem is?
