successfully installing bin files using exec
in case no one has tried yet...
since i can't access settings menu, i tried installing firmware update 3.0.3 using ~exec and it was a success.
context: jailbroken kindle with ss and fonts hacks
no usbnetwork hack
on kindle 3 w
~exec /mnt/us/folder_name_in_case_file_is_not_placed_in_kindle_r oot/Update_kindle_3.0.3_B008.bin
rebooted kindle then after a few seconds screen displayed update successful.
after that, i installed update_usbnetwork_0.28.N_k3w_install.bin using this method. Now my kindle has usbnetwork hack also.
if these things can be done, is it possible to reset kindle to factory settings using ~exec?

Most, if not all, kindle haven't got the ~exec scripts left, so, unless you put them on manually that's only useful to a really, really low number of people (because you'd have to get a root shell in the first place to put them in, which means you wouldn't really need the ~exec command). (And the 3.0.3 update just killed them, btw ^^).
And, to answer your question, why try to do it this way, when you can already just hold [HOME] during a cold boot?
