So I've updated the main deployment script (RUNME.sh) to work even if the file is not found.
Other than that, things look to be working close enough to the Kindle 4 from what I can tell (I've managed to have a look into the java implementation as well). I've already found a default ServerConfig.conf for Kindle 3, and it looks almost the same as the one in Kindle 4.
So I guess you could give it a try installing the KSP config on your Kindle 3. The main script is RUNME.sh in tools/kindle4nt/ksp-config/. You will have to copy it to the device (preferably to /mnt/us/), modify it a bit (the SERVER_URL= line), and run it from a SSH console:
./RUNME.sh 2>&1 | tee RUNME.log
If you've configured KSP to run over HTTPS, it will look for and launch the get_certificates.sh and keytool.sh scripts, so you need them on the device as well.
If you want to be extra careful about it (and have a lot of patience), you could probably copy and run each line from the scripts, one by one, and check the results after each one. Or you could just add a second line to each script, "set -v", which will log each and every line before running it -- the resulting log file would be very informative.
Thank you very much for your help, I appreciate it especially after you've already bricked your Kindle once
