I'm planning to get a kindle 3 wifi soon. This looks like an awesome outdoor Linux console platform. One of the things I've been most concerned with is effective system image backup in case I mess something up while playing with it.
Based on your deep experience with the kindle hardware, I've got a couple of questions that I haven't seemed to find a definitive answer for yet. Sorry if this is to far off the subject of this thread:
(1) What would you say is the simplest, easiest procedure for performing a full system image backup of a kindle?
(2) Do you think it is possible to do such a thing without having to build a serial adapter?
For example, wouldn't it be awesome if it where possible to hold a certain key during startup that would put the machine into a mode that where by it exports the entire flash disk via UMASS. That way you could take an easy full image backup, and restore if something goes wrong.
