By simply copy/paste the complete code lines no file is created.

Thanks

there are several ways you can create that file....

One is to create the file on your PC (make sure you use LF line-ending, and not Windows CR/LF one). Copy it at the root of the Kindle via USB

Then activate the networking mode, telnet to the device and do :
cp /mnt/us/usbnet /etc/init.d/usbnet
Make it executable with:
chmod +x /etc/init.d/usbnet

Another possibility, is telnet to the device
type:
cat > /etc/init.d/usbnet
then paste the whole content
Press Ctrl-D twice to close the file
chmod +x /etc/init.d/usbnet

etc...

Ideally, the easiest would be for the author of the update_usbnetwork.bin file to have that file directly into the archive...

I'll see if I can update the file myself later today and automatically create all those files.. Would be much easier that way
