A few people have had no fun with those instructions.

(The error message appears to indicate that the touch "netcat" doesn't have listen mode at all) This could be fixed by slamming a newer busybox over it. Total overkill of course. That command does NOT fail on a 3 with a newer busyobx

Quote:
[root@kindle root]# nc -h
nc: invalid option -- h
BusyBox v1.20.2 (2012-09-03 02:06:04 BST) multi-call binary.

Usage: nc [-l] [-p PORT] [IPADDR PORT]

Open a pipe to IP:PORT
note the extra switch.

the original 3 nc is also not capable:

Quote:
[root@kindle root]# nc -h
BusyBox v1.7.2 (2012-09-01 14:15:22 PDT) multi-call binary

Usage: nc [IPADDR PORTNUM]

Open a pipe to IP:PORT
as is the 5 incapable

Quote:
[root@kindle root]# nc -h
BusyBox v1.17.1 (2012-07-17 16:29:54 PDT) multi-call binary.

Usage: nc [IPADDR PORT]

Open a pipe to IP:PORT
wherever they are, These instructions, - someone should put "or just do it onto your local device" and the right instructions for a Touch. this is the third time someone failed with them. (That I know of)

Link?
thanks

um HEH.
Yeah... the instructions are fine.
as long as you don't use them backwards.

Quote:
on the Host: nc -l 31337|dd of=mmcblk0p1.bin. Note: depending on your version of netcat, this may not work. If you have an old version of netcat, try nc -l -p 31337|dd of=mmcblk0p1.bin instead.
Kindle: dd if=/dev/mmcblk0p1|nc 192.168.15.201 31337
if your PC doesn't have netcat -l (what machine doesn't????) get a version that does...

http://sourceforge.net/projects/nc11...%20release%5D/

http://joncraton.org/blog/46/netcat-for-windows

or get an updated version via your software repo thingy of choice.

HTH

seems like dd if=/dev/mmcblk0p1 of=/mnt/base-us/mmcblk0p1.bin would be an easier option for most folks. ( and the other places obviously)

then extract over USB.

Unless you F*** around for three days trying to set it up because you're a noob....

then it's eleventy billion times slower

You know, I really don't remember how hard it was to form a Jimi Hendrix Major Minor Chord in the beginning but I suspect it was a shitload harder than it is now.

Practice makes perfect, great. Unless you only ever want to do something once. Then, well...

Slow and simple wins the race.

Yeah, reading flash is MUCH faster than writing flash, and reading flash and writing somewhere else on the same flash (mmcblk0p1) is WAY slower, especially if the blocks are misaligned as is typical with FAT partitions on flash. That is why SSD manufacturers provide tools to realign the blocks in FAT partitions that were formatted with XP or earlier...

For that matter, my INTERNET speed is faster than writing a file to my K5 USB drive. Downloading a file from internet to kindle USB Drive would leave unused capacity on my residential internet link.

So, yeah, use netcat if you can.

P.S. "Eleventy billion" is credited to Keanu Reeves on the Final Jeopardy show.

I'm getting 69Mb Fibre connection to the top of my hill this month HEH.
(they guaranteed me no less that 64 MBps at any time)
</gloat>
EDIT: for $1.50 a month more than my 4Mbps connection, ooh tough call


Keanu Reeves looks like a body double in that snippet... Very Anchorman

That is because this video is a SNL skit of the Jeopardy thing. And yes, Will Ferrell is a regular on SNL who also appears in Anchorman.
