I posted this is in the regular Kindle forums earlier, but thought it was prudent to add here as well. I order for version 0.2 to work on the Kindle DX, you need to add the following in bold:

if serial.startswith("B001"):
print "Kindle 1 serial number detected"
elif serial.startswith("B002"):
print "Kindle 2 serial number detected"
elif serial.startswith("B004"):
print "Kindle DX serial number detected"
else:
print "Warning: unrecognized serial number. Please recheck input."
sys.exit(1)

Someone should consider taking over the code and releasing an official 0.3 version.

I might add that my wife got a replacement Kindle 1 with a S/N beginning B101 so I I had to modify the script for that.

Does anyone know what the B00X prefix will be on the new K3 latest generation Kindles will be?

And did you tried it ?

Re: K3 prefix.

Seems to be B006 in the few clear shots of the 3g+Wifi review units I've seen.

(And since we're talking about S/N prefixes, for those wondering, it's B009 for the DXG)

And it's B008 for the Kindle WiFi version
