Yes. You can flash the main 5.0.0 kernel with fastboot. You need to use diags SSH "dd" to flash the main partition, which is too large for fastboot. If you do not yet have diags SSH, you can use fastboot to flash matching diags kernel and mmcblk0p2_ssh, then use that to write the 5.0.0 main partition image.

For more details, see the "simple debrick" sticking thread, and the "small debricking guide for noob" PDF file you can download there, or in the Tools index.

If you leave wireless on, amazon might OTA upgrade you to 5.1.0 again.

Solutions to that posted here last February -
If the only wifi is from your home router - block with firewall rules in your home router. Presumes your home router is running Linux (many are).

If the Kindle is mobile - block with firewall rules in the Kindle.

I do not recall that anyone made an "install_*_.bin" for this change, you will need SSH access to your kindle.

Search February for "iptables"

I use puppy sometimes when I need a liveCD distro. It is very small. It has its OWN package management system though. Before that I used a DSL (Damn Small Linux) LiveCD distro.

I use mint on my main host PC, but I spend most of my time in VMs running inside it (VirtualBox).
