Security fix

OK, so... I'm attaching an update package which can disable (or re-enable) the vulnerability, until Amazon comes up with a proper patch.

To install the package, your device obviously needs to be jailbroken. Ironically, if needed, the jailbreak can be installed using the very vulnerability that this package fixes

EDIT: There's a typo in the README: Of course, the vulnerability isn't triggered, but it (rather: its availability) is toggled. Sorry for the potential confusion.

EDIT 2: This is obsolete. The vulnerability has been fixed with Firmware 5.1.2.
