I've connected a serial console to it, but for some reason the TX is not working (probably for the level shifter i've used wrong diodes), but the txt does.
I've tried to update with this kernel, so I can export the whole partition, but I'm getting the following error:
*** CHECKING /mnt-us/update_kindle_3.3_custom_kernel_k3w.bin ***

ERROR:Could not unbundle /mnt-us/update_kindle_3.3_custom_kernel_k3w.bin

Any idea why ? What's the right procedure to install this kernel ?

What exactly did you flash? A stock 3.3 kernel or yifan's? If you flashed yifan's, did you properly extract it from the update package with kindletool, or did you build it from source?
