I mean how to activate it if the device is totally bricked (e.g. dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk)?

If you are saying that you executed the above command already, you are toast.
(I am presuming the above has a typo, and was actually /dev/mmcblk0 ).

That command will write zeros to the entire device, including areas outside of the file system partitions.
So unless you kept a copy of those areas that contain device and user specific data -
you have done an "erase all" the hard way.

No it was not a typo and I know what the command does very well and let assume the I have the complete image of mmcblk.
On the old versions of Kindle recovery from that is certainly possible: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kind...ownloader_mode
My question is: Have somebody find out how to activate the downloader mode on Paperwhite?

That's the Holy Grail.
You'll become famous when you find a way how to activate the USB downloader mode on Paperwhite.
