So far my Kindle Touch detection command looks like
Code:
[root@kindle root]# grep "\\s5\\.[13]\\." /etc/prettyversion.txt
Kindle 5.3.2.1 (~~otaVersion~~)
It matches firmware versions 5.1.* and 5.3.* What other versions should it match for a Kindle Touch? Any opinions?
What about matching other Kindles? Any suggestions for suitable patterns?
If no other ideas than prettyversion.txt will come up, this will become the Kindle model detection mechanism in KUAL (the launcher).
I'm a little concerned that it isn't future-proof, so a new firmware release might break the pattern and require rolling a new KUAL. Mumble, mumble...
