You might try removing the last hex digit from your fionaXXXX password. On all of my kindles DX, DXG, and 3 different K3's, all of them used 3 hex digits.
That would have been my next step, the only setback was finding the right wordlist, because it's a bit diffcult to find my way around in this forum
Besides, I was more curious why the 'actual' password didn't work..
Now I know and everything is good
Thanks anyway
