Serial Number (all 0's)

thats teh Only thing i need to fix is Wifi this was done with 3.3 Bootloader image, + 3.4 Kernel and Rootfs surprisingly the MMC was NOT blank, all my books and collections are still there!
ok Apparently it cant Reset to factory defaults either O-o
If the debricking image was configured for 3G, you kindle will show as having 3G even if it does not have 3G hardware.
Another thread (for the PW) discussed the config file changes used to enable or disable 3G, and would apply similarly for other kindle models as well.
