I am a bit worried though that you publish and explain the loopholes you exploited since it makes it easier for the Kindle developers to close them. Saying that, I wonder why they bother since I really donīt see the harm for Amazon in letting the Kindle be an open system. It is a great e-reader that becomes even more useful and popular by the hacks and improvements developed by the end users. Only when it comes to circumventing the ads on the ad-supported Kindle or misuse the free 3G service, I can understand that Amazon have their objections. I therefore hail the attitude of jjfs85: "I DO have an ad-supported Kindle, but I intend to keep them as I've agreed." A sign of high moral standards and trustworthiness.
I believe all information should be open. I give out these information so others (not just amazon) can see some of the flaws in their systems and fix them. And even if I don't say how it works, it's very simple to extract the package and see how it works. I'm just saving them a couple of minutes.
