This hack, based on ebs' code, restores `usbNetwork functionality.
If you don't know what that means, then you probably shouldn't even be trying to use this.

If you don't understand half of what's written here, see the previous paragraph.

As always, it may void your warranty, eat your Kindle, kill a kitten, and sell your first
born's soul to the devil.

I *strongly* recommend having a proper Linux CLI sysadmin background before trying to use this,
or you *WILL* probably end up messing your Kindle up. Do *NOT* do anything with this unless
your are *REALLY* sure you understand what you're doing.


=== Install/Uninstall ===

Nothing fancy, as usual, with a jailbroken Kindle, just use the appropriate update file.


=== Usage ===

I'm gonna assume Linux/BSD/OS X here, Windows people, you're on your own.
not an encouraging start for you

*reading on*

Quote:
* Take a moment to read, and edit, if need be, the config file in usbnet/etc/config.
In case you managed to miss the shiny warnings there: this *HAS* to use UNIX line endings,
(did you check that you didn't mangle the file?)

Quote:
(Note to K4 users: I'd recommend you to set USE_VOLUMD to true, it's known to make things much smoother on the K4).
you did that too?

Quote:
The pubkeys are stored, in OpenSSH format, in usbnet/etc/authorized_keys (ie. you can safely use a ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2 file from OpenSSH).
and you made your keys and installed them...

(or ~ on the 3) so you should be okay with the ;

* Your Kindle should now be detected as something like a RNDIS/Ethernet Gadget or CDC Ethernet Device network adapter.
well is it?

If you're also using a Kindle Touch or a Kindle 4 in diags
you aren't - moving on...




Quote:
$ ssh root@192.168.2.2
(you will use Putty or something instead)
or

$ telnet 192.168.2.2

Note that, when WiFi mode is enabled, telnetd won't be started, and the SSH daemon *WILL* require a proper password!
When WiFi mode is disabled, telnet will log you right in without password, and SSH will log you in with anything as the password (even a blank one, so you can just type return).

* Like I said at the beginning, if you don't understand half of what you're doing here, go away before you brick your Kindle.
It's for your own good.
but you arent being asked for a password... so..

have you tried telneting for the PC (windows can install telnet natively IIRC) - the docs say you can

have you port scanned the kindle - is 22 open???

etc. etc. All stuff that you can do from a windows box .

: )
