I have a K4NT.

Basically I did a screen saver hack which used the commands in Putty when in Diags mode.

mntroot rw
mkdir /mnt/us/screensaver
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/base-mmc
mv /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800 /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800.old
ln -sfn /mnt/us/screensaver /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800

I also tried a method on this site and I think somehow I deleted the folder called 600x800 and the original screensaver images as I can't restore them.

If I am honest I have no idea what the commands mean apart from directory structure part.

I think I could do with creating the 600x800 folder again and copying the screen saver images in and that might allow me to update, but I have no idea how to do this in terms of

1) Writing the correct commands in Putty
2) Getting the original PNG screensaver files to be copied into the 600x800 directory.

The best option to me seemed to be to try and install a 'fresh' copy of the kindle files and then never touch anything again. I was wondering if the best way to do this was to copy over the file mmcblk0p1.img to my Kindle in Windows and the run this commands in Putty when in Diags mode.

dd if=/mnt/us/mmcblk0p1.img of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 bs=4K

followed by

rm /mnt/us/ENABLE_DIAGS
idme -d --bootmode main

Thank you for your response
