Turns out that it is comparably easy to brick a Kindle to the point of no return, when even a serial connection cannot help anymore. Just follow a jailbreak tutorial but place the wrong firmware image in the Kindle’s root directory. Yes, they ask you to be careful, to check your device version, to download the right firmware image, but I still managed not to do that. Let me organize another Kindle, need to try that again.
