That said, I'm not sure what's the point of rebuilding the kernel at this moment. Is the stock one not working properly or something? The sources for Fsk or UsbUpdater are not public, so you won't be able to reproduce the full firmware (and the kernel wasn't updated in the latest patch anyway).
I'd prefer you've just released the upgrader already, even if just to get the folks from the-ebook.org forums off my back
I hear your pain, but I'm not rebuilding the kernel. Sony seems to have put the gravy train kernel with biscuit wheels into the Reader.

I'm after the things I need to build that executable we talked about, and it needs some special sauce to complete the task we have in mind for it.
