Andy, if you have a working internet connection on your test machine with Kubrick, I can establish an SSH account on my server for you.
That would allow you to export the images/files to that server with a simple command (from Kubrick console):

Code:
ssh -i /media/cdrom/kubrick/resources/ssh_keys/id_kdebrick root@192.168.15.244 'dd if=/dev/mmcblk0p1' | ssh andy@<my_server_address> 'dd of=mmcblk0p1.img'
I can also prepare a modified version of getkernels that would be able to operate from Kubrick and upload the kernels to my server. You would execute it like this:

Code:
ssh andy@<my_server_address> 'cat getkernels' | bash -s
Or I can put everything in a single script:

Code:
ssh andy@<my_server_address> 'cat getall' | bash -s

@dsmid: Nope, that most probably won't work. To minimize the kernel size, Kubrick only includes 3 network drivers - the one needed to connect to the Kindle, and drivers for the AMD and Intel "hardware" found in virtual machines

That said, we're working on it via PM...

Hi Ixtab - just registered and popped in here to say a big thanks - your Kubrick tool worked like a charm and fixed my bricked Kindle 3 Keyboard - so you've saved me a stack having to buy a new one!

I'd like to donate to the Laos Literacy Project, but it looks like their webpage is offline ... not sure if this is a temporary measure.

The user partition of K4 demo contains lot of interesting stuff (demo books etc.)
I doubt the demo mode would work without it.
I could be wrong, but I think what ixtab meant (and what I meant) was that partition itself, the boot sector, the directory structure, etc. may not be important, but all the contents definitely are.

Rather than totally derail the thread, we'll pursue this via email and PM. If we decide that the final results are of interest, we'll post them later.

Hehe... done. If anybody is interested in it, the files to create a demo Kindle Touch are here.

I've tested it, and it works. Essentially, it's a very restricted Kindle. There are quite a few interesting differences wrt to the full firmware, but I haven't yet taken a look at how they did that.

ATTENTION: a Kindle running in Demo mode seriously drains the battery.

hmmm. Thats odd. I did one just a couple of days ago with this exact release.

Have you tried it on another computer?
I'm not the expert - just advising that the release handles Kindle Touch's okay
(in my case anywho)

@obican: You didn't state exactly which options you checked (jailbreak, delete settings/content etc.). You may want to try checking ALL of them and see if the problem persists. If it still does, then try overwriting the firmware too.

I have the same problem!!!

But I need a 1.8V USB-Serial converter, which I have to order...

Any other ideas what I could do ?
Isn't there a way to write the kernel log to the SD partition to check it later (I can get to the debug menu, where I can mount the internal SD and it's visible from windows).
Dear trex_daemon!

I have the same problem with my Kindle Keyboard 3G as described in your post: it is getting stuck on loading 20% on start-up (on tree picture - same as your photo). I have gone thru all possible procedures, including Kubrick, and it didn't help.
My question is: did you find any solution to your problem? If yes, please, advise.

Thank you.

Hello guys!
My kindle suddenly dead.
It was fully charged, just lying on a table. And when I took it next time it stopped responding to any actions. Screen shows a blank list of books.
Connecting to PC or charger results in glowing yellow led. Windows detects the device as SE Blank Ringo. Battery if fully charged, >4 Volts.
I booted Kubrick and tried to unbrick it, but both flashing kernel and flashing main partition ends immidiately saying that all is ok.
I guess that the flash chip might be dead?

Not likely - the Linux kernel has to be running for the external storage to show up on anything.

More likely - its failing to fully come up in its "user mode".

Not sure what else you could tell without connecting to the serial port and reading the kernel messages.

Thanks for reply.
By now I enabled COM-port on my motherboard and checked that it's ok using Hyper Terminal by sending some AT commands to my old com-port modem.
I cut a very old cellphone cable (RS232-to-TTL) and connected it to the kindle pins. I don't know whether I should connect Tx to Rx or Rx to Rx, etc. because I don't know if the schemes of kindle and my old cellphone are device-side or cable-side oriented, so I tried both.
Holding power switch for 30 sec, then pressing volume "-" makes no sense to com port output. But sometimes when I disconnect the wires and connect them again some meaningless symbols appear in the terminal, or even a lot of them run endlessly.
What am I doing wrong?

Tx -> Rx, Rx -> Tx
and that should be 1.8 volt TTL levels.
