Kubrick does not support Paperwhite.

Please read the first post on the first page of this thread.

You are definitely right! "other devices (K1, K2, KDX, Paperwhite) are not supported!"

Could you please point me in the right guide?
Because I think that also the "simple debricking guide" is not for me

It is for you.
The mention of a specific model(s) in the guide are in reference to the model(s) used to develop the guide.
But the guide directions apply to all devices with series 5.x firmware.
That is your use-case.

(with a few exceptions - like the "Androidized" models/firmware exceptions)

Device: KT (D01200)
Hello,

I'd like some help debricking a KT...5? (Model number is D01200). I'm using VirtualBox in Windows 10 (I can't make a USB boot work, and I'm using a laptop with no CD/DVD drive).

I'm in a similar situation to what @lj001 was having; I can use Kubrick through a VM only, and can get to the point of "Press NEXT once your kindle is in fastboot mode". I'm using VirtualBox in Windows 10, so I doubt the "driver issue" theory. I can sometimes briefly see the device "Kindle" plugged in, but I can never get it through to the VM. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Have you looked into getting a USB CD/DVD drive for cheap, borrow, or free?

Just curious, how would that differ from a flash drive if it's still over USB? It is an option, but not ideal.

Because BIOSes were notoriously bad at handling boot from USBMS sanely.

It's gotten vaguely better in EFI land.
