No worries, it's easy to miss since I posted it in the developer section (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16732). :)

Sorry, didn't see it. Will be more careful in the future.

In case you're insatiably curious about the insides of your Kindle but aren't brave enough to take it apart yourself.
