Sorry folks, for being such a jerk

Everything works right now - I simply made one big mistake - I copied both - install and uninstall.bin to root folder in kindle. I thought it was some kind of backup system - while install was not successful - kindle automatically runs uninstall.. - looks like "uninstall" was run after reboot or at the same time "install" was run - either way - it prevented it from correct installing (now ssh through putty works correctly).
It's all because KT is my first kindle and I didn't follow K3 jailbreaking. Forgive me for my ignorance. If I'm able to contribute/help in any way I'm willing to.

That is not quite correct...

By default, WinSCP attempts to use the SFTP protocol - which causes the application to fail to connect because there is no SFTP binary on the device. If instead, you set the application to use the SCP protocol, it will connect without any additional modification to the device.

By the same token, if you (like me) use linux, you are able to scp files to and from the device using the CLI, ie:

Code:
scp root@10.0.0.1:/var/local/java/prefs/browser/bookmarks_wv .
all of the above works WITHOUT the need to install the sftp-server binary... (Of course you still actually need to have the SSH binary installed on the device)

if you really need SFTP access (as opposed to pure SCP) then the sftp-server binary from the USBNetwork hack is here:

THX, of course, no real need, I accessed via SCP, but I collect all I can get ;-) and try every time to understand more.

Kindle static IP

I've scoured my Kindle 4 for the configuration files for static IP and DNS settings. Can't find it. Anyone have a clue? I know I can (and did) change it from the wifi settings menu, but I'd like to change it remotely from ssh.

Editing /etc/resolv.conf won't change the DNS nameserver because it gets rewritten on each reboot or restart of wlan0.

Persistant wireless settings are stored in binary form and can be accessed using wpa_cli. I'm not sure that this contains the ip configuration though (I doubt it). You could just configure your IP statically in the amazon firmware and check /var/local for any file which might contain the IP you gave or just edit /etc/network/interfaces.

Nothing in /var/local contains a DNS IP. Editing /etc/network/interfaces doesn't change anything. How could that be?

What I wanted to avoid was the configuration through the menu. Just to change a DNS IP you have to reconfigure the whole thing and I only have the virtual keyboard in this thing

I'm sorry, but you cannot get out of fastboot without the fastboot tool. What is your OS? Maybe someone can compile it for you? I did state in bold to not attempt unless you k ow what you are doing.

Question How to block IP addressess on Kindle

Hi all!
Thank you very much for your work with Kindle. You do really good and useful job. I'm writing here as to prominent experts on the subject.
I'd like to block some IP addresses on my Kindle 4 NT, generally i'd like to block access to the site Amazon.com. I checked traffic when Kindle connects to internet - it use only ip-addresses, so the hosts file is useless. I don't know Linux, so i'm afraid to do it by myself. So, I'd like to ask your advice - what should i do to block Amazon's addresses 72.21.192.0 - 72.21.223.255?
The line should look something like this, right?
Code:
ip route add blackhole 72.21.192.0/19
How to write it to the file to save this routing after reboot?
I would appreciate if you help.
thank you guys.

Get your friend to compile it on the Mac. That's how I compiled it. I can't seem to find it right now though.
