Um, is the question "what's it good for" or "how does it work"?

What's it good for: You can browse the web. The hack enables networking permanently, the html file provides an address bar where you can enter www.mobileread.com, or whatever.

How does it work: The pdf contains links to the Iliad's internal programs to start networking. Other than with the iDS update thing, the network will not be disabled after a minute, but stay active until you reboot. Then, the html viewer can display online websites. Because it has no addressbar to enter addresses, there's a html file that simulates one.

Question answered?
