No sorry it didn't work, the version I tried to flash was the rootfs.img from the factory update, the above shows the ouput in the console windows.

The output in the fastboot window is
downloading 'system' ...
OKAY [ 19.197s]
writing 'system'
FAILED (remote: locked command)
finished. total time 19.205s

I then issued ./fastboot continue

and the console drops back into the

Enter fastboot mode, use Ctrl+C to exit. loop

the only option from there is a reboot.

and after the reboot nothing has changed.

I'm guessing the output:
"locked command: flash:system."
was not good news.

@j.p.s: Duh! Missed that, thanks .

Not familiar enough with this to say whether it's the flash command that's locked, or a flash of the system fastboot part.

And whether system actually is meaningful here, because I vaguely recall them having different names in older Kindles .

for info; the factory updates contain a populated /usr/local/bin directory, which includes the "installHtml" and the "usbnetwork" shell commands amongst many others, the OTA updates do not, in fact there is no /usr/local directory at all in the normal updates.

There you go, tripped up by your attempts to speed read this forum.
The above is (one) of the reasons we have been using the "factory use only" builds rather than the customer builds to do the jail breaking since the 4th of July, 2016.

They say that 10% never get the word (or "get the memo").

There should be a way you can change the device version, since there are "normal" failure paths that could result in it being missing or corrupted.

While it is true that the "Androidized" Kindles do not have a dedicated "Diags" partition (they are no longer "dual boot") the "Diags" features have been moved into the InitRamFS - One of the reasons for the increase in ram and flash.

I don't see where you posted the listing outputs of u-boot features or variables, nor where you check if the "advanced (bist)" u-boot was available from the initial (boot time) build of u-boot.

Also, the Android staged bootloader is present, you might try accessing it.

On responding to the prompts - -
You do not have to be fast, they are "Chicago voter" style prompts - -
Press early, hold for many repeats until your man wins.

Sorry for the thread derail, but I just wanted to say that WOW, so happy I got a Kobo to replace my Kindle.

There was some effort to convert my kindle books to epub, but that's trivial compared to complexity of attempting to navigate the jailbreaking necessary just to use Calibre library management.

Would like to add that the serial is being seen by computer. When I unplug serial connection, PuTTY errors out and says "Error reading from serial device."

If you're so inclined, message the mods and ask them 'wtf, mate'. (I did - they ignored me)

Say what? You are still at "3"?
I would think they would have you at grant86 by now.

Hey there, I got a PW4 but it came with 5.10.3. I never connected it to the internet so I am assuming it's currently a factory image. I am going to try and see if it works tonight.
