by just using imx_usb, I get:
$ ./imx_usb fastboot.bin
15a2:0052(KindleTouch) bConfigurationValue =1
is based on libusb
. Googling for libusb macos claim failed
took me to libusb ticket #89
saying that HID devices aren't supported by libusb
on recent MacOS X. USB downloader mode protocol (used by imx_usb_loader
) is HID-based and KT in USB downloader mode is recognized as HID device. Ticket is 2 years old, but it's closed as wontfix
. (There is also related libusb ticket #33
So, I guess, you must to boot into other OS to work with imx_usb_loader
. Maybe Ubuntu LiveCD?...
