I am a new kindle user, I own a PW for a while. I have it jailbroken using ixtab's jailbreak. It was all fine until today, when I prepared 4 books, and transferred to my kindle using calibre. Then I tried to ssh my kindle -not for serious stuff, just for exploration. But it didn't respond to the SSH request. I decided to reboot it. But it stuck in a reboot loop which ended up with the "needs repair" screen.

So I tried using rescue pack of ixtab, at first I was able to ssh into my Kindle. I tried to scp my personel files, in case I loose them. It didn't work. I mounted kindle as USB device, using Diags screen, copied my documents in the root folder to my PC. Ejected the device, and re-tried SSHing. And now my kindle is frozen. It doesn't respond at all -even if I press its button for about a minute! It is frozen with "Misc individual diagnostics" line selected.

Any ideas?

hmm. this sounds odddly quite a bit like the 3's when they just decide to "Die".

I would just put it back in the box and send it back,

It "reads" like it is highly unlikely to be as a consequence of your actions.
Thus item unfit for purpose, thus return.

See what customer sevices say. On the MOUNTAN of P/w's that got returned for "bad screens" your little device won't even make a tiny blip

HTH

Thanks twobob.

Do they accept it jailbroken or you just mean they won't probably check? Is it possible to get Diags screen w/o jailbreak?

Yes.
Yes.
Probably not.
They ship the replacement before they receive yours.

you didnt maliciously break it.
There is obviously something "actually wrong"

From your description, it's not entirely clear which state your Kindle is currently in (like: does it even show up as (any kind of) a device after boot?).

But it sure looks like it's in a state where it's not willing to boot anything to get itself together again, so yes - it just seems to be bricked for good. Just return it to Amazon, and have them figure it out. .
