no, I meant by etching put it in hot etching solution and stir it.

yes, start UART mode with "m3" then choose baudrate "9". the Rest of the settings are default. Enable pullup Resistors with "P" then Start the transparent UART Bridge mode with "(3)".
You can get the constant 1.8v directly from the kindle. the shortest pin on my mask has 1.xv on it.
