Thanks to the fine folks here at MobileRead, I have succeeded in jail-breaking, installing the GUI Launcher, installing the extended opware, adding /opt/bin to the PATH in profile, connecting wirelessly via SSH, and executing said optware programs via SSH from a Linux and OSX terminal.
I understand how to access wifi info, server info, debug mode, etc via shortcut bar commands such as ;711.
However, I cannot figure out how to run any of the installed linux utilities from the KT itself. I would like to be able to run a terminal emulator especially, or at least execute shell commands on the KT.
It seems to be possible given the statement regarding backup on the wiki page:
on the Host: nc -l 31337|dd of=mmcblk0p1.bin
on the Kindle: dd if=/dev/mmcblk0p1|nc 192.168.15.1 31337
Any pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
I appreciate all of the hard work done by various tweakers, and look forward to contributing.
