Kubrick prompting for password at the 'Flashing main kernel and partition' step

I've spent many an hour reading through many of the threads in this section but I don't think I've come across this scenario.

At the stage where Kubrick starts 'Flashing main kernel and partition', on the red status bar/line, where it initially displays 'Flashing...' the bar gets overwritten with 'root@192.168.15.244's password:'.

It seems to corrupt the status bar so I'm guessing it's not something that is expected at this stage of the process. I've tried typing in the password, fiona2279 in my case, but the process seems to be hanging.

Any thoughts on why this is happening or how I can avoid it and allow the flashing to progress?

Does the Kubrick process assume a different password such as 'mario' that I've often seen mentioned? Do I need to adapt a Kubrick script to use my specific password?


FWIW I can get diags running and USB networking allows me to WinSCP/PuTTY connect to the Kindle with root/fiona2279 but I've been unable to make much headway beyond that.


Appreciate any suggestions people might have.


Many thanks.

Hello,

I have a KV and I am not able to put it in USB Downloader mode.

Any idea? Please

Thank you very much.

I am sorry. I am a little lost.

I couldn't find anything for KV, so when I read this:

https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=180113


K5 : Kindle 5 (Touch) Index [may also serve as a general category, referring to the FW 5.x family in general: Touch, PaperWhite 1 (PW1), PaperWhite 2 (PW2), Kindle Basic (KT2) & Kindle Voyage (KV)]

I understood, Kindle 5 (Touch) is equal to KT, so KV is inside that group.

That holds true as far as the *software* is concerned, not the hardware. And that's usually reserved for the "K5" notation. "Touch" should pretty much always mean a venerable original Kindle Touch .

Which is why I tend to use "FW 5.x" to make that SW/HW difference more explicit nowadays.

TL;DR: Nothing we can do about a KV, short of opening it up, sorry :/.

Ok, many thanks. I understand now.

My problem is a corrupted book which doesn't allow the KV to reboot, due to not enough RAM memory. I am almost sure of it but I have no way to delete the ROM memory. I will try the motorola fastboot cable to see what happen and if it doens't work I will try via serial port.

Thank you so much.

It does not work, you can go directly to the serial port thread.

Many thanks, I will try with it.

(I have never thought that, I have read a lot in this forum and it is incredible the information it contains, so thank you very much, it's just that for Kindle Voyage I didn't find a guide for debricking, there is at less three thread without solution and maybe a cause of that I am more lost. But no, I don't think that and I apologize if it's due to a misunderstanding by my english level.

Many thanks.)

That was a comment written before the day's first cup of coffee.

There hasn't been a lot written about the KV here, so you didn't miss anything.

Best to look up (with web search) a Voyage Teardown or two.
