Alternative way to enter diagnostics mode (instead of the ENABLE_DIAGS file)?

In an attempt to make my fourth partition ext3 (the one usually mounted to /mnt/us), I broke the system's ability to read or write to it, which also broke my SSH connection to it somehow (even though sshd lives in /usr/sbin/sshd as a file, not a link to /mnt/us/usbnet/...).

Long story short, is there a way to enter diagnostics mode without access to this parition? I cannot write the ENABLE_DIAGS file at this time.

Cold start the Kindle (very long power button press/hold) - -
The cold start boot process **should** detect the "broken" mmcblk0p4 and re-build it as FAT32 for you.

PS:
What you just learned the hard way: Changing the file type of the exported partition from FAT32 requires a lot more than just a re-format.

While a *nix system **should** be independent of the storage format used -
Amazon/lab126 did not design their system that way.
The design has a lot of dependencies on that partition being FAT32.

You will find a thread (or more) on the subject here.
You can also find thread(s) here about exporting it just about anyway that Linux supports and the kernel modules required.
