There is a KUAL button to install a firewall that includes a BBB (Block Big Brother) fiilter.
Developed on a K3, enhanced and tested on K4 and K5 (both of them).

The posts that you linked to pre-date KUAL system with its firewall and close back door buttons.
I didn't chose to do it the hard way, I simply didn't know the easy way existed. Finding a raw list of KUAL addons wasn't helpful since I didn't know what their use was or what their advantages were. I was trying to get KUAL itself to run while wifi was enabled and didn't want to pursue addons until KUAL itself was running.

I saw a firewall with BBB, but I didn't know what BBB was, nor did I know it would specifically help with running Kindlet's on an unregistered device where amazon.com deletes the keystore when connecting to wifi. I just didn't know that, it was all new to me.

Edit: I just read that the firewall with BBB doesn't survive reboot, so amazon.com would delete my keystore if wifi was enabled after a reboot.
