Which is why yours is "different" than the production runs - it isn't from a regular production run.

You have several choices - -

"Break" the firmware, call Amazon saying: "Its broke, exchange it please."

OR

Hang in here, there are at least 4 "known good" Kpw devices in developer's hands - they can send you files and directions on how to replace your firmware with "known good" firmware.

Using the PM system here to discuss either of the above choices is probably a good idea.
Send it back to az and pass on the opportunity to learn a few things more ? You're kidding, right ?
I am keeping it !! Now let's conspirate together on what to do next

just a quicky, because I'll need to go and get drunk in a few minutes (Christmas party):

You can essentially replace your diags partition and kernel using this method: http://ixtab.tk/kindle-touch-images/...ssh_README.txt
The offsets and partitions are the same, except that you'll want to use the files for the Paperwhite, not the Touch. They're in the paperwhite/ subdirectory on the server.

If you have any doubts or questions, some of the other technical folks here can surely help you.

Oh, before you start the procedure, "umount /dev/mmcblk0p2".

Beware that ixtab's copy of my firmware has my password hashes (fiona2bc)... It also has my guid file, which perhaps should be erased so it can be regenerated on boot.

Comparing wifi firmware with 3G firmware showed which config files need to change to enable or disable 3G. Details were posted in another thread. Debricking a 3G K5 (and probably a PW) with a wifi image disables 3G, but editing that config file will fix that problem. Of course, this is not of concert for the diags partition if that is all you need.

Sorry if this was said somewhere - but does this work on the kindle touch 5th version, which I presume has the same 5.3.0 firmware?

I only want to replace the minimum, so yeah, diags and kernel. Now, can I use your files geekmaster ? I am asking because according to their names (found the PW Directory obviously) they are 5.2.0 files.. does it make a difference ? It should not normally (my experience based solely on Android) but I'd rather be stupid than sorry.

The K5 is running older 5.1.x (or 5.0.x) firmware. Only the PW uses 5.2.0 or 5.3.0.

I'm from Spain and I've just done it. In www.amazon.com change your country to a valid U.S.A. address (google how to get one, it's easy). Later use this address in your payment method. In "Manage my Kindle" you'll have the option to unsubscribe the special offers. Once you have complete the process you can back to your original address in your account and payment.

There are reports that amazon will remove ads for free if you live in a country where ads are not supported.

I just searched and did not find it. But I remember somebody reporting that when they called amazon the kindle support tech removed their Special Offers at no charge. I recall a discussion about that. Perhaps that was a special case. In other cases, people report having registered a fake US address to pay and remove ads...

It probably depends on what support tech you talk to and what you ask for. Amazon's policy regarding this issue may have changed as well.

I haven't used this yet, because I've been holding my PW at v5.2.

But I just have to chime in and say "Bravo! Well done! Thanks."
