Firmwares' checksum list

There is somewhere a list of the firmwares' checksum? I've not found it

It would be useful to avoid flashing of firmwares not correctly downloaded

Amazon's ?

There is a textfile containing the checksum associated with each of the initial factory images, same name + the extension .md5

Put in same directory as downloaded image, enter:
md5sum -c <whatever name>.md5
It will tell you pass / fail
With some GUI installations, all you have to do is click on the *.md5 file in your file manager.

The *.md5 file is printable, all one line of it, if you must do it by eyeball.

There are directions in the jail break thread on how to do that for people handicapped with Windows (md5sum is standard on Linux and MacOSx).

But one single list?
No.

I know there is for factory images, but i intended the firmware update files that Amazon releases.

Perhaps we can try (with the contribute of the members of this forum) to mantain such list, every time Amazon release an update

It does not work, geekmaster tried it.
The problem is Amazon re-issues the update packages without any hints to anyone.
So you can't tell if it is a re-issue or a transmission error.

But there is a life saver there - -

The initial factory images are not 'model locked' - which also means they do not have an over all checksum.
The individual components have checksums, but the updater can not 'back up' if it finds a bad component.

Which is why I provide an external, overall, checksum.

The Amazon customer images are 'model locked' - which means the package has an overall checksum.
And the Kindle update code checks that before it even tries to unpack the components.

Which is why Amazon does not provide an external, overall, checksum (its internal).

So it's impossible to flash an Amazon customer image not correctly downloaded?
If yes, such list is useless, better that way

IIRC, the Kindle will not even un-gray the UYK button unless the checksum passes.
