Question Root password for Kindle non touch (black 2012), firmware 4.1.1 ?

Hello, community,

I have Kindle NT4 (black, 2012). Maybe I'm searching wrong this forum, or I'm the only one, doing the mistake to update my kindle firmware to 4.1.1. Since then the suggested root passwords "mario" and "fiona" doesn't work. I'm able to connect thru SSH thru usb0 network, but none of the passwords seems to work. Tried bruteforcing the root account with hydra like this:

hydra -t 1 -W 50 -v -l root -P wordlist.txt ssh

but the anti-bruteforce security bans me very quickly. Any ideas how to gain again ROOT on MY OWN device?

Thanks in advance,
