can i enable usbnet by default?
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.
