There is NOT an MfgTool for linux. It is a large comprehensive tool for manufacturer installation and testing of new kindles, and it is very Win32-specific (many winapi calls). It would be VERY difficult to port.

As I suggested, sb_loader provides the small part that we need, but I was not able to successfully run a custom linux kernel (uImage) using it (but yifanlu reported success). There is a much simpler version of sbloader for linux, in the RockBox project, which I partially ported for kindle use (not finished yet, like MANY projects that I started). I get projects like that working just enough to PROVE that I *CAN* finish it (when I need it enough to suck time away from other projects).
