The MicroFTX is out of stock at jim.sh and tindie, do you know other shops and/or boards that would work with 1.8v?

I'm wondering specifically if this one could work:

Thanks!

Note that the vendor does not provide a datasheet for the device.
Which makes it impossible to give a definite answer.

It does appear to be a clone of an FTDI product.
And you can probably save some money dealing with the vendor through alibaba.com rather than their captive retail store operation (aliexpress.com).

i got all the soldering bit done fine, i can see the output in putty, happy days, but there is a problem, i cant get the password, when i enter

Code:
print("fiona%s"%hashlib.md5(*myserialno*\n".encode('utf-8')).hexdigest()[13:16])
the python prompt simply changes from >>> to ... i dont get a password result, so what stupid mistake am i making here? ive tried on both python 2.7 and 3.4 with the same result, i am using a linux machine for the python part if that matters (although it shouldnt really as python is pretty much platform independent)

EDIT

i also cant seem to get the console to see my keyboard presses, it just boots normally ignoring the keyboard presses

Count the number of " characters.
If the number is odd, then one is missing or one is extra.

Yes it does, only the window on all firmwares is very small.

Hold the key down, don't try to catch the prompt - nobody's reflexes are fast enough.

Enable a capture log of the terminal emulator you are using, capture all output including the prompt you are trying to capture.

Use the 'advanced editor' to attach the log file.

Have you confirmed that the Kindle can "see" your keystrokes?

It has to be a problem with your local setup.

I just unpacked with KindleTool 5.6.5, 5.7.2, 5.7.2.1 and 5.7.3.1 -
NONE of them have a new build of u-boot included.

Q.E.D: You have the same u-boot as everyone else, it is a problem with your setup.

The problem is with your setup.

How did you determine that your setup is sending characters to the Kindle?

Kindle is not the first in which I received jailbreak...

PS It is necessary to connect another converter
