What device?
The KT2 is not an old device, less than 1 year old, still sold by Amazon, and has its own 5.6.5 update posted by Amazon.

The KT (original, an old device) also has an update posted, but not to 5.6.5.

Use the first four characters of your serial number to find our nicknames for the devices in this table:

Would you provide some more details of this:

USBnet is what provides the sshd service.
Please tell us what works and what does not work.

Have you tried to re-install USBnet?
It was updated yesterday.
See:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=225030
or, if you have trouble reaching Mobileread from your country, try the direct link:
https://storage.sbg-1.runabove.io/v1...lic/index.html

You will have to use MrPI to install packages to 5.6.<anything>

Thanks, It's very luckly that KUAL call shell script still with user root.
After reinstall usb/network and KPVBooklet, it's working proper now.

The only thing is root passwd is unknow after upgrade.
One small hack to reset passwd is add my id_rsa.pub ssh key to kindle, and edit the AutorizedKeysFile under usbnet/etc/sshd_config
AuthorizedKeysFile /mnt/us/usbnet/etc/authorized_keys
And reset passwd after ssh into kindle...

*) Old news. root password has been disallowed since 5.2.<something>

*) Not a trick or hack - the use of public key authentication is recommend in the USBnet package documents.

*) If you have pub-key auth, why do you need a password?

PS: You can also Telnet in over the USB cable, Telnet does not require a password.

It is really hard to say, when the only clues you give us is "does not work".

How did you jailbreak you KV?
What set of directions did you follow (link please)?
Did you jailbreak it while it was on an earlier version of the firmware?

What USBnet package did you use?
One from NiLuJe's snapshot thread? When (it has been updated recently)?
What directions are you following?
