[Newb] What can you do after jailbreaking the PW?

I'm waiting for my PW to arrive (probably after Christmas, I'm not located in the US so it's coming via a forwarder) so I'm doing a little research on what you can do after jailbreaking.

I currently own a Kindle Keyboard (wifi) which is jailbroken for the screensavers hack (loved loved it). I'm happy with the default fonts, so I didn't bother with the fonts hack.

I will wait to decide if I hate the SO ads enough to pay to remove it. Ideally I would prefer to keep the SO ads (heard good things about the offers) but be able to rotate in my own screensavers. I doubt that's possible though.

So my question is, screensavers hack aside, what goodies can I get if I choose to jailbreak the PW?

PS: My apologies in advance if if this is not the right forum.

in essence run your own binaries. Beyond that you are limited by skill and imagination.

Now that Alex is finished with his IRC add-on here, maybe we can get a Kpw prefix?
Ah, so -
Use his new IRC to bug him about it.

Thanks! Are K5 (Touch) hacks generally forward compatible with the PW?

TIA for your patience, I've been so out of touch with the Kindle hack scene...

same machine - give-or-take a few details.

To be honest at this time no doubt a large lump of them need the odd detail moving over, however in it's core the device runs on the same processor.

So yes, and No. Have to have a play and report your findings

The (native) binaries normally are. For anything WAF and Javascript, collections database, registry etc., chances are that stuff is similar, but different enough to require a bit of adaptation. The Java part is almost completely different because of obfuscation.

Why not try the Master Index sticky at the top of this forum.
The other forums will probably not be much help.
