all attempts to get outside.
In order to try this, I arranged an extra WiFi router with its WAN side turned Off.
I quickly learned that the last kindle firmware catches these situations,
and doesn't even connect to such wireless networks, keeping the airplane mode always On.
I suspect the kindle version of wpa_supplicant, but, unfortunately, no chance to get deeper on that..

Is this a known problem? Any workaround for that? Am I missing something?
Thanks.
That will be a matter of evolution.

The first step is to block everything that can be found ;

And then identify the the "safe" ones (perhaps the 'sync' services, or things that are safe to access by 3G (which never downloads updates) ) ;

And of course, there will be as many ideas of what is 'safe' as their are users.

This is a very flexible structure now.

Many of those things can now be turned into 'button presses'.
