Amazon has put several directories with many files into a compressed image that get mounted during startup.

You can mount it on Linux with this command:
Code:
mkdir fonts ; sudo mount -o loop path/to/fonts.cramfs.img fonts
Thanks for that information!

I'm just wondering - WHY ON EARTH are they doing that?! They are effectively slowing down the device for no reason: Extracting the files takes time, and accessing them through whichever method they chose will also take more time than directly reading them from the file system. The only reason for doing this would have been if the partition was too small to hold all of the files, but that doesn't seem to be the case. So again: Why the f^Whell did they do this?
