Perhaps our failsafe should have iptables adjusted to allow SSH over wifi, in case USB networking is not working, like we did for the K4.

Try to just press the power button until the device reboots. The device should be usable despite that message (yes, I've also seen that message, and it actually didn't do any harm). If in doubt, restart the PW while it is disconnected (=without any USB cable). That should do.

To expand a bit on the issue:

* USBNet relies on volumd to toggle between USBMS/USBNET.
* volumd uses modprobe to remove & load the usb gadgets.
* On remove, modprobe will try to unload the parent modules of the removed module if they're unused.
* As a consequence, depending on the device, if the device is plugged in, modprobe will fail either on remove or load with a 'Device or resource busy' error. (Which, AFAICT, is completely true & valid).

Now, USBNet does a bunch of safety checks (namely, waiting for usb0 to come up before calling ifconfig to set a custom IP). Simple_usbnet just called volumd (through lipc), and let the system handle it. Apparently, if you leave it alone long enough, it *does* end up coming up properly (on volumd's terms), so that was mostly transparent on simple_usbnet (although, you'd have to actually unplug the device too to make the switch effective). USBNet, ont the other hand, *needs* stuff to look okay *during* the lifetime of its helper script, so it'll wait for 15s for usb0 to come up, and throw that error and give up after that. After that, it's basically undefined behaviour. usb0 might come up properly (on volumd's terms), or not .

I didn't use simple_usbnet much, and I'm used to this limitation from the K2/3, so I never looked too deeply into it at the time, because I was avoiding it, but if someone can confirm that simple_usbnet handled toggling while plugged in slightly better, I can add a setting that bypasses those checks (and duplicate simple_usbnet's behavior). That means losing the custom IP (if the setting is enabled), but since we default to the same settings as volumd, that's not terribly annoying...

To get back to Beekr25's message:

I didn't check the files, but given the first post and your answers a few messages later, I'm guessing you didn't put USBNet in the image, ixtab?

So, err, why the hell is Beekr25 seeing an eips print from USBnet? ^^

@Beekr25: So, yeah, more details ;D. Did you happen to have USBNet installed before doing this? (Because if you did, and you're seeing it after a full flash, something obviously went wrong during the flash).
You mentioned it appeared 'over the advert', so was that *after* the boot process (ie. on the Home page)?
Or did you just reinstall it after the 5.3 flash?

You're totally right: the posted image contains *ONLY* the original Amazon files, plus the jailbreak (/etc/uks/pubdevkey01.pem), and the two files to switch to diags mode: /etc/upstart/debrick.conf and /etc/upstart/debrick

Nothing more, no other changes.

Yes I had USBNet Installed.

The message appeared sometime between step 7-9 but I didn't notice it until I realized the screen was unresponsive.

A further update I have since powered off the unit and now it's stuck on the Kindle screen with a boy reading a book. Ive tried a 30 second hold and a 3 minute hold of the power button but it won't move past the reading boy screen. I currently have the unit plugged in to fully charge it to see if that makes a difference.

As I just bought the unit I may have to try my luck with a return if there is no fix.

@ixtab: I suggest that you add the following message to the top post:

Fully recharge the battery before you begin this process!

Perhaps a new step order of:

0 - Place device in airplane mode
1 - Fully recharge the battery
2 - Ensure that you are running version 5.2.0 of the Amazon software

2.5 - Only when the battery is fully charged, proceed with:

Steps 3 ... last as now posted.

@Beekr25: Yeah, that does sound like a bad flash, there shouldn't have been any trace of USBNet left. Which might explain why it appears to be borked ;/.

EDIT: You mentioned that USBNet still comes up. If you had it in auto mode, try doing a hard-reboot with the Kindle unplugged, and then only plug it & try to get in via SSH a bit after the spinner appears (if it gets there), that's when USBNet is triggered.

If you can get in, you might want to throw a stop framework or stop lab126_gui fast to avoid the halt on failure, and give you time to look at the system.

(Or a touch /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS, since you had ixtab's rescue pack, too).

(Or assume only the rescue pack is still working, boot while plugged in, and see if it comes up in USBMS long enough for you to drop an ENABLE_DIAGS).

I'm stuck in diags mode Can't enable USB networking I get to the press x for enable USBnet and the only x I can click is exit at the very bottom, but that does nothing.
I can't use the DisableDiags option from the menu as that chucks up an error that the file is missing.

Please help.
I've followed everything, step by step.

Pressing that x should take you out a level in the diags menu, but it DOES start usb networking (if installed). Your host PC should see the kindle as an RNDIS device...

I just upgraded to the "safe" 5.3.0, and it worked fine for me. Then I installed the usb network hack for the main partition.

The "exit diags" menu also works for booting back to main. It will reset the idme bootmode var for you. If it complains about a missing xml file, just select the first diag on the main diag menu (Device Settings) to create that file. Then go disable diags again...

I installed the "rescue pack" which says it includes the USBnet.
I also did wait after clicking that X but nothing changed on the laptop it was plugged into.

Sorry got overly worried, I'd bricked my Paperwhite.
Thanks geekmaster, back to normal now. <Phew>
