application launcher for kindle 3 (kite)

this thread has been deprecated.
the new version is available here:

kite (no jailbreak)
Spoiler:

unzip kite-no-jailbreak.zip
move the correct .bin file to your device
unplug
=========================================
someone might want to turn this into a replacement for jailbreak.

alright, you can install kite without jailbreak. i only built it for the k3 versions.
i haven't tested them. someone might want to do that and let everyone know if they work.

let me credit all the people who worked on the jailbreak; i used your scripts.
::nods::

kite (usbnet)
Spoiler:

# tar xfz kite.tar.gz
# ./kite.sh
> reboot kindle
uninstall script will be in /mnt/us.

madness
Spoiler:

someone might want to write a manual and description.

(i'm just getting worse and worse at this.)

next time my sig may read "frankly, my dear, i don't give a damn."

bit of trivia: that is actually the number one movie line of all time.

he offends while he informs.

ugh... i convinced myself no one will know what the hell to do with it.

manual
Spoiler:

there will be a directory 'kite' on your kindle.

drop scripts, binaries, executables, whatever, into the directory
and you will be able to launch them from your home screen.

drop etc into kite/onboot to have things run at boot.
drop etc into kite/ondrop to have them run when you disconnect.

if you delete links from the home screen they will be moved to
kite/unused.
once scripts in kite/ondrop are run, they will be moved to kite/unused.

::gags on manual::

kite usbnetworking (no jailbreak)
Spoiler:

usbnet.sh.gz:
usbnetworking for kite (jailbreak not required, usbnet not required).

> plug in device
# gzip -d usbnet.sh.gz
# mv usbnet.sh /mnt/kindle/kite/ondrop
> unplug the device

usbnet will appear on your home screen.
run it to toggle usbnetworking.

this package uses xinetd for telnetd and rshd, not busybox.
it will open ports 514 (rsh), 23 (telnet), 2323 (alternate telnet)
2323 is open for compatibility with jailbreak-based usbnetworking.
xinetd will bind these services to the usb interface only, so you
cannot use then over wifi (unless you modify the config files).
rshd is included for rcp, an alternative to scp (less cpu intensive).
package also includes terminfo for xterm and bash.

to change the ip of your kindle, edit kite/config/usbipv4.
the default is 192.168.2.2.
you will need to bring up the usb0 interface on your local machine:
# ifconfig usb0 192.168.2.1
# telnet 192.168.2.2 23
# telnet 192.168.2.2 2323
# rcp /bin/true root@kindle:/tmp

uninstall is located in kite/uninst.
thanks to the original usbnet people for finding the module commands.

inetutils source:

extract script
Spoiler:

extract.txt:
a commented shell script to create a self-extracting archive.
use this as a template to create kite-based installers (kite/ondrop).
