Hi. I need some help to try to debrick my PW1 - 5.6.1.1. (jailbroken)

The problem started when trying to edit jars for margins. I changed the wrong parameter, and now the kindle has entered and endless resetting loop.

At first, I was able to stop the loop by pressing the start button for long time; the screen "your kindle needs repair" appeared. Later, I tried to reset again (with the button) and it has entered the loop again; this time I am not able to stop it.

During the restart loops, I have access to the kindle through windows (the device gets connected and I see the files and folders)

I need to connect in SSH mode in order to replace the edited jar that is causing the trouble. Could you help me with a brief instructions about how can I be able to do that? Thanks a lot!

EDIT: During the restart loops I've been able to copy a bin image in the root folder, and the system has updated itself. FIXED!

And this time, you will remember to install "Rescue Pack" and optionally its add-on, "Cowards Rescue Pack" before you mess with the system files?

It sounds good! I didn't know anything about those packages. I will search and study them before messing the files again, thanks!

EDIT: Great! The rescue pack was just what I was looking for before I managed to resurrect my kindle!
