I have a first gen Kindle Fire that has been flashed with Android 4.0.4 (hashcode's of course).
The device was rooted using my thoshiba NB305 netbook running ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid).
While the original OS was still installed, I could mount the kindle's filesystem over a usb connection using
mount -t ext3 /dev/sdc /mnt/kfire
Now I'm trying perform another rooting operation from the same laptop, to upgrade android to 4.2.2, and cannot get the kindle's file system mounted with this command.
I checked dmesg and the devices is still being detected as SCSI device on /dev/sdc
sd 11:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI removable disk
ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/
usb-Am_File-CD_Gadget_0123456789ABCDEF-0:0 -> ../../sdc
The thing is, mount isn't even detecting that a device is present at /dev/sdc, I simply get the error
mount: no medium found on /dev/sdc
I'm not sure how to mount a usb-Am_File-CD_Gadget, or why I'm not at lest getting a "wrong filesystem type" error from mount.
Also, the kindle is not showing up when running
and so figured I needed to mount it in order for adb to be able to see it. However, I just tried my LS970, and its showing up in adb devices, but also cannot be mounted with the above command (or mtpfs -o allow_other /mnt/kfire).
So, I'm looking to get the kindle discovered and communicating with adb first and foremost (I thought mounting was required for this, but apparently isn't).
I found this article to be potentially helpful, but still need to give it a through reading:
Any help is much appreciated, Thank you.
