The safest way to build a Kindle Hack is to use the 'mount --bind' way to overwrite any files/folders. A restart of the system is all what you need to restore everything.

Frankly speaking, I'm a little bit surprised that the new 2.3 hack is still using the dangerous 'straight overwrite root files' way....

I'm wondering if this would work with Kindles. There are seem to be a few people who have messed up some of the files on their Kindles by either a little too much tinkering or unistalling improperly.

Could software like Partition Manger be used to clone the Kindle prior to installing hacks so that the Kindle can be restored to it's original state should something go wrong? Would it also work on any other ebook readers?
