A number of questions related to the kindle source.
I intend to modify and install the kindle firmware available from amazon.
it would make it a lot easier if some knowledgeable person could answer some questions for me.
-how exactly can I go through the process of compiling the modified source? (all snippets are in .tar.bz2 files, so it's pretty daunting, since I have not compiled a program of this size before)
-how may I be able to install the same firmware version which is already installed? (I could easily change the version number, but that might cause issues ahead)
-is there any published run-down of the source available? (I would like to avoid working from scratch if I can help it)
