You MUST use the dd command after booting from diags, to successfully write a main partition image. If you write main while booted from main, it often does not work correctly because the main partition sometimes writes to its filesystem. Writing to a filesystem and to its raw partition at the same time will damage it to some extent (perhaps too much to repair).You need to reset the boot counter stored in /var/local. There are scripts posted that can do that.
thank you.

but i use the mmcblk0p2_ssh.img ,it didn't mount /dev/mmcblk0p1,when i use
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/mmc
but the /mnt/mmc/mnt/us just have one tree 'document'

i don't known how to going down

If i use back the mmcblk0p2.img ,but i cannot into the ssh ,connection refuse.
so, i didn't use the
dd if=/mnt/us/mmcblk0p1.img of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 bs=4K
now i can see the screen shows "Repair Needed ! Your Kindle Needs Repair...." , no auto reboot now
