How to enable SSH via Wifi on Kindle 4 (4.0.1) nt on windows:

1) Get your kindle serial from the settings menu

2) Run the following python code to get your root password
Code:
#!/usr/bin/env python
import hashlib
print("fiona%s"%hashlib.md5("XXXYOURSERIALXXX\n".encode('utf-8')).hexdigest()[7:11])
3) Enter diagnostic mode: create an empty file with name ENABLE_DIAGS on your kindle via USB and reboot (Settings -> Menu -> Restart)

4) In diagnostic mode plug in the USB cable and go to usb networking: Misc individual diagnostics -> Utilities -> Enable USBnet

5) Install windows driver. Windows (7) won't recognize the correct driver, so you have to select it manually: Go to device manager, and select the new unkown device, right click and install driver. Then click your way to the driver list, select "Network card" then "Microsoft Inc" then "Remote NDIS based internet sharing device"

6) setup windows network. Setup the IP for the new connection: IP 192.168.15.1 Subnet 255.255.255.0, rest empty

7) Open ssh client like putty and connect to 192.168.15.244 user name root and password from the python script 'fionaXXXX' (or 'mario' for 4.0)

8) mount main partition
Code:
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/base-mmc
9) copy dropbear binary:
Code:
cp -r /usr/local /mnt/base-mmc/usr/
sync
10) add firewall rule:
Code:
vi /mnt/base-mmc/etc/sysconfig/iptables
add line
Code:
-A INPUT -i wlan0 -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
hit ESC , then enter :wq and press enter

11) reboot: On the kindle exit usb mode and go to the main menu, then select 'Exit, Reboot or Disable Diags' -> 'Disable Diagnostics'

12) disconnect USB cable

13) after it finished rebootin you can point your SSH client (or WinSCP) to the Wifi IP when kindle is running in normal mode
putty freezes up at the password screen (I try typing in fionaXXXX [I won't tell you those X's!], but it doesn't show anything. Help?

It does not echo the password as you type it.
Would not be very secure if it did, now would it?
Keep following the directions; type your password, press the 'enter' key when done.

Oh, but now it just says access denied. And I am running on a :
kindle 4NT with SO and username as root, I still wont say my password (but I might if this keeps up?=)

Access denied can mean more than one thing.

try a port scan of the device. check 22 is actually open. if not you have another issue.

also: Capitalisation is important in those password generators. ensure you have the correct password. I think that applies to the python method. try mixing the case and see.
(I did try testing this but didn't have python on my device. I should go put it on there)

HTH

EDIT: Telling us your password won't help. but describing your exact method of deriving the password might just throw up an error in "process". for example.

The "how you got there" is often just as important as "what you got".

Is there a new touchscreen eink kindle that runs version 4.0 firmware, as indicated by the title of this thread?

If not, perhaps this thread should be renamed to include a REAL kindle model such as K4 or K5...

EDIT: I requested a thread title "correction". The current "[Progress] Jailbreaking Kindle 4.0 (Touch/No Keyboard)" was incorrect from the start, created back before people actually knew the correct firmware version of a K5 and two kindle models released at almost the same time caused this confusion. No need to keep confusing people now that we know better.

He's discussing a 4NT. AFAIK

Except the thread title clearly says "(Touch/No Keyboard)". Resurrecting such an old (and mistakenly titled) thread from the dark ages of the K5 is not particularly helpful, when there are much newer threads for this purpose.

EDIT: Thread necromancy such as this is especially inappropriate when his post is about a completely different kindle model (Non-touch vs. Touch).

Deleted and re-added and deleted my comments about thread hijacking TWICE.

Don't want the OP to imagine persecution as my overall vibe has been a bit preachy today. Which is purely reactionary but nevertheless potentially inflammatory.

Still. now you've said it.... It's said

waterlubber is trying to work out frustrations by multiple posting in as many threads as possible.

That old: "the squeaky wheel gets the grease" type of posting.

The goal mentioned was to: "roll back 4.0.1" which can mean only: "roll back to 4.0".

Since both of those choices are so old, I would not be surprised if what waterlubber now has is 4.1 (unless the update process was blocked for a very long time).

I for one welcome the enthusiasm. Necro bumping and flame suits aside.

Not entirely sure of the feature benefits of such a downgrade, as I don't know the flavour.

I think I said that it's a bit radical as an option. lots of stuff can be "tweaked" but it would depend on the OP's remit. which is unknown mainly.
