K4NT SSH woes

Hello!

I just got my kindle yesterday, and I immediately have jailbroken it and then I followed this guide to get SSH access to it: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kindle4NTHacking

But now when I try to SSH into it, I get "connection refused". What could be the problem? Is it an easy fix?

Thanks in advance,
Luke

That means sshd/usbnetwork isn't started, or you are trying to do it over wifi.

Oh yeah, sorry, I should've mentioned it. I am doing this over USB, and I can ping the device.

@DrLuke: From diags or via the USBNet hack on main?

Some newer devices (all the K4B 2012, for example) do *not* have SSH installed on diags.

Only from diags. That explains it then. How do I proceed to get SSH on my kindle then?

@DrLuke: Check the last line in the wiki: use the usbnet hack .

Ok, I did that now, and I've got a usbnet directory on my kindle now, but I still get connection refused (over diags mode)

Ah, I had to first write
;debugOn and then ~usbNetwork into the search bar. Now it works! Thanks!

The root password also was just mario

I should probably extend the wiki entry so people won't have to search this in the future

@DrLuke: there's an extensive README(_FIRST) in the usbnet hack.

It covers a wide range of devices & setups, so I prefer to refer people to that than shortcuts one may have used for his particular setup .

(Granted, the visiblity of that last single line alone on the bottom of the K4 wiki page isn't all that great, though...).

Haha yeah.

I wonder, could you point me to how I would run my own program on the kindle and have it actually display something on the display? Like, my own gui and all, or display images

You may want to look at making your own Kindlet (special java applet)... I have absolutely no experience with that though...

I think that's not quite what I want, I want it to run on linux natively.
