Not really anything new in terms of jailbreaking, but WHEN it's possible to jailbreak, it will be VERY EASY to modify the boot images (as we modify the screen savers now).

EDIT: To change custom bootscreens:
1) modify /var/local/java/prefs/com.amazon.ebook.framework/prefs
2) set low_level_screens.dir to any directory
3) Put images into this directory

K4 also has built in custom screensaver support
1) modify /var/local/java/prefs/com.amazon.ebook.framework/prefs
2) Add this line: "screensaver.enable.userdefined=true"
3) put your screensavers into /mnt/us/sleepscreens

Just some advice for future purposes when we jailbreak this thing.

Also, it seems like all kindles include a secondary rootfs partition for diags. This partition contains SSH and usbnetwork. However, other then using the serial port, I don't think you can reboot to this mode.

EDIT: When I posted this, I was referring to the Kindle 4, not the touch.
