The root password given by that web page is your ORIGINAL password for your main partition, based on your serial number, as stored in your main partition. The password for the diags partition is usually "mario" (without the quotes).

When you debrick by writing a copy of a partition image from a DIFFERENT kindle, your root password changes. We have a custom of using a password of "mario" (without the quotes) on debricking images for the main partition. However, there were some firmware images in the wild with different passwords, as documented in the posts where you downloaded them (or in a README file that came with the firmware).

Try the mario password...

I have a Kindle Paperwhite v1 (FW 5.3.9 - not jailbreaked). After a longer stay in a drawer (several months), its battery got depleted. A few days ago, as I tried starting it again, it stucked at the screensaver. I kept it charging for 20 hours or so, until the led turned green. It is still stuck at screensaver.

The device appears otherwise to function normally - I can connect it to PC via USB, and access the storage memory. I tried resetting it to factory defaults using file (following this post), but after getting the language selection screen - where I can select "English (United Stated)" - the device continues booting and stucks at the same screensaver. I managed to reapply the latest FW, the update seemed to go normally, but at the end it is still in the screensaver mode.

Is there anything else I can try, considering it isn't jailbreaked - anything besides serial port approach?

Kindle paperwhite has 1 year warranty so maybe you can get a replacement. When did you buy it?

Warranty it's not really an option, it was a gift - so I don't have any papers, nor do I know about its provenience...

So I'm really stranded with the serial port approach?

I don't think you need papers, you should contact amazon support. I also used warranty for a kindle keyboard which I received as a gift. Amazon sent me a new device.

Dear friends. I need your help. My Kindle Paperwhite is bricked. YKNR. I definetely know that some files were removed. I tried to restore it with update, but it restarts too fast and I can't paste file with update.
I'll appreciate if someone will copy all files and folders from his kindle and download archive with it somewhere. I'll simply replace my files.
Thank you in advance.

There is no need to restore any of the files on the USB partition. However, you may want to try this. This uses a simple 0-byte file, so you should have enough time to copy it to the Kindle during the startup.

Объясните, как зайти в ssh через Putty? Включаю "Enable USBnet", далее установил драйвер RNDIS. Захожу в пути, ввожу ip, порт 22, жму "Open" - выходит ошибка Connection refused! Замучился уже с этим восстановлением...целый день с утра сижу уже...напишите, как решить эту проблему плиз! Пробовал еще через Boot CD http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=206064 восстанавливать, но там выходит ошибка на самом последнем этапе, когда предлагают сделать wipe и поставить jailbreak, от всего отказываюсь, жму "Next" и на надписи "......Installng last actions...." ну или что-то типо того выходит ошибка FAILED! Правда, я не заряжал целых 20 часов, как там написано, но зарядил до зеленого индикатора, ибо не вижу смысла мучить батарею...
Как мне восстановить свой Kindle ???
P.S. - у меня kindle 4 NT

3. Use kermit, login as root, dd mmcblk0p[123] to /mnt/us
4. Reboot in recovery mode
5. Export FAT partition
6. Plug USB cable and backup mmcblk0p[123] to my PC

I'm going to copy official kindle update from amazon website and do:

U. Update using update*.bin file on FAT partition

Is that safe doing that? What else should I backup?
Ok so I'm a real noob! I've connected an FTDI USB-TTL 3v3 to the serial port. What baud rate, number of bits, parity, etc., should I be setting my terminal program to in order to communicate with the serial port of a PW1?

Actually, the wrong adapter - should be the 1v8 (1.8 volt).

But other people have reported using the 3.3 volt interface levels.
And if any of those other people have destroyed their Kindle interface, they have been ashamed to admit it.

So I had to put Kubrick on a dvd to get it to even boot on my desktop. When I finally got into Kubrick it wants me to put my device into fastboot (hold power till light goes off, hit home and let go of power then home). I begin to hold down power and before the amber light goes off, kubrick shows on screen that device is ready. I've tried completing the button steps, I've tried continuing to hold the power button; nothing works because on the next screen it WILL NOT enter fastboot mode and continue on. Any ideas?

Background - had this kindle touch for a while laying around off network and jailbroken, decided to login to wifi and attach my amazon account and when it updated itself is when it bricked.

See the thread: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=237083
Pay attention to post #3

(Battery died while flash controller was trying to write a complete update - your device is dead,
Or close enough to dead to count. It may still run in "Diags" mode.)

Well I keep it pretty well charged and it looked fine when I turned it on to play with it so I don't know how much sense that makes. How would I test it in diags mode?
