So you can't repack PW updates without either converting them into non-recovery updates (non-trivial task) or replacing currently installed stock kernel with modified, containing non-Amazon key for checking recovery update validity (over-engineered solution, IMHO; it's also a little bit frightening to flash new kernel on PW without easy access to USB downloader mode in case of accidental failure).
Ah thank you. I remember reading something (it quite possibly was you yourself) mentioning that those full updates use a different mode than the options the jailbreak offers. (That was after I already sent the idea to ixtab, that is why I think he might have left it at that)
