Step 1: Start Linux
Step 2: sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog
Step 3: plug kindle (which must be in USB downloader mode).
Step 4: check log. If you see something similar to the output I posted, check that your Kindle has the correct device identifier. If you *don't* see anything like what I posted, run "sudo lsusb" and post its output here.

The above steps are there to verify that your Kindle actually identifies itself correctly. If it does, you can use imx_usb_loader as described here.
