I downloaded the latest source for my Kindle 2. I'm not a Linux newb but I'm certainly not an expert either. I do have programming experience. I'd like to play around with the source and experiment with tweaking some things. I wonder if anybody could answer a few questions.
1. Is there a way to compile the source into a virtual machine environment that simulates the Kindle operation? You know like an emulator for development. I don't want to experiment on my one and only actual Kindle.
2. If I did develop a tweaked source, is it possible to "upgrade" my kindle with the custom code?
3. Maybe I'm thinking about this the wrong way. Does Amazon have an api for kindle development and if not does anybody know if they're going to offer one (announcements about it or anything)?
