A bit of both, actually. A co-worker had a Kindle with a broken display, but it still worked, so we used it for hacking. We removed the 2GB chip and replaced it with a 4GB chip (the same one the DX uses). Unfortunately, the Kindle never worked again - even after we replaced the original chip, so we must have messed something else up in the process.
My interest in the project also decreased after I loaded 10,000 books on a Kindle, which renders it all but useless. You can read about that here
