Here are the files you need to generate the update package if you k3 is already on version 3.3.

I'm pretty sure they will work, but I've done only some minimal testing with these files.
(On my k3 the new create_updater successfully generated an "update_dx-update-os.bin")

USE AT OWN RISK!

How to use:
  1. Add the following to the whitelist (<k3 root>/linkjail/etc/whitelist) of the jailbreak on the k3 host:
    Code:
    update_k3-3.3-create_updater
    update_k3g-3.3-create_updater
    update_k3w-3.3-create_updater
    !! If you are using windows you may have to use wordpad to edit the file !!
  2. Use the "create_updater" file provided here instead of the original

The file "src-3.3.patch.gz" are the changes I've made to the src from here: http://yifan.lu/p/kindleupdater/
(That does not fix the directory names for "kindles/create_updater*, but since these dirs are empty it has no impact at all)

The source patch also fixes two minor issues in "create_packages.sh".
  1. using bash instead of sh, since the scrip did not work with sh on my ubuntu system
  2. replaced TMP with TEMP, so the script runs for non-root users (No longer writing/reading a file to/from "/".)
