I'm talking Linux, specifically, but maybe some MacOS folks would also be interested. If I missed something along the way and there is a way to do this on Linux (MacOS), any pointers are appreciated
Awesome? That is the name of the Kindle Touch window manager. This looks nothing like that. But yes, I strive to make "highly awesomized" code. Thanks.
I am working on a Linux version of sb_loader, which can download and run u-boot images in the kindle. It is in progress...
In the mean time, I am using 64-bit Linux, and I thoroughly tested this in a 32-bit Windows XP Virtual Machine running in VirtualBox, by passing the Kindle USB port directly through to the Windows USB/HID device driver inside the VM.
MacOS can run XP using its built-in emulation, or you could install XP in QEMU or something.
I plan to make the sb_loader replacement cross-platform using libusb (and perhaps libSDL if we expand into full GUI-land).
