EDIT: Considering the fact that I have a bunch of K5 demos arriving soon, I do not plan to stop developing for the K5. In fact, I am working on adding dithering code to the Doom video game (prboom) that twobob ported to the K5, with a goal to make it work on all the eink kindles. But when the Paperwhite comes, we REALLY need to learn how to get it into USB Downloader mode, because the new firmware will undoubtedly lead to Paperwhites gathering dust after they get bricked...
