Sftp access to Kindle root dirs via Windows

Get the sftp binary from here

Connect Kindle in USB mode and copy this file to any dir.

Start Putty and ssh to [email protected] Password is mario

Now, manually copy that file from /mnt/us/location_where_copied to /usr/libexec/

chmod 755

Now try sftp to [email protected] with port 22 and password mario

You can now copy files to and fro..


If you prefer a File manager interface for copying files though, use WinSCP
