Has anyone monitored what information is transmitted over the Wifi between your kindle and Amazon servers? Is it all encrypted?

From the persons who manage to get root access to their paperwhite, have you done dumps of the OS that you are willing to share? I have to wait a long time before mine will be delivered...

Thanks for any information

Actually, somebody here has done this. I remember reading the results a couple of years ago. I can't be positive, but I believe it was a regular poster who is still here so may comment on this. Trying searching some different terms for the original thread.

Personally, I couldn't care less who knows what about me, but I know it matters to some.
