usbnetwork v0.04 (with root telnetd shell)

I've uploaded usbnetwork-0.04.tar.gz package to include hacked telnetd daemon that gives you root shell without any passwords.
Also, I changed the way I install usbnetwork script - now the only modification to the original firmware is a symbolic link /test/bin/usbnetwork which points to /mnt/us/usbnet/usbnetwork. Nothing else is touched.

All custom scripts and executables are installed in 'usbnet' directory on user-accessible mass storage partition. This will simplify any modifications you may want to make - just change script there, no need to perform firmware update every time. Please, refer to README for more details.

Kindle2 version is also included, however I haven't tested it.

Screenshot :
Code:
mbp bin # ifconfig usb0 192.168.2.1
mbp bin # telnet 192.168.2.2
Trying 192.168.2.2...
Connected to 192.168.2.2.
