The Kindle touch (5, if I understand correctly) is out of my price range, but the $69 is K4?
What about this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Amazon-Kindl...item4ac0af153b

Would it do the job?

That is the K3 model that twobob referred to.
Probably the minimum for slow graphics presentation.
I.E: Flash display of a static page. It has been shown here (by geekmaster) that has the processing power to show reasonably good 'slow scan' (low frame rate) video.

The K4, K5, (and OOPR Kpw) have an on-chip graphics co-processor in addition to being a faster processor.

The "Cheapest" model in the US Amazon store is the "Kindle" (A.K.A: Kindle mini, K4, Kindle non-touch).

Page through the prefix index pages (see forum sticky) - geekmaster put a picture of each model on the device specific pages.

Thanks guys!

If you can find a K4 "Demo" machine, with the condition described as: "For spare parts only" - -
These are store demonstration machines, running demonstration software -
These machines are often cheap (in part because the K4 is glued closed - making it a bit hard to use them for 'parts').
AND they are very easy to "Un-Demo" by installing the factory consumer firmware.

You mean like this?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Demo-Display...item460c2f8153

and this
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Demo-Display...item460c394004

and this one's a touch: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Demo-Display...item3a7dd5ce91

Edit: also, before I buy one with no cables, it's just plain-jane micro USB, right?

Awesome! Now I just have to decide if I want a 4 or a 5.
Thanks for everything guys!

And I will also say, thank you for not just telling me "gtfo use search function" as happens on most forums when asking relatively ignorant questions.

Success!

Hey guys, thought I'd just give an update.
I received a black(or silver? It's not white, but I don't know.. haha) K4 demo unit, and un-demo'd it with the "Guide to debricking Kindle Touch V4" pdf and the files from pastebin.
Kudos to you all, great community! Thanks a million!

Hello, I'm trying to use a kindle touch kt5 with a raspberry pi (raspbian linux distribution).

I've enabled the usbnetwork on the kindle, and I'm able to ssh to it, entering a password.

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo ifconfig usb0 192.168.15.201 && ssh root@192.168.15.244

I've installed the kindlevncviewer in the kindle.

Now I have to run Xvnc-start.sh?

In kvncviewer.sh I've removed
echo "send 139" > /proc/keypad
because it gives error...

thanks in advance...

and did you? IIRC you may need to just check the IP's in there.

[root@kindle root]# cat /mnt/us/bin/Xvnc-start.sh
Code:
#!/bin/sh -xe

orientation=`ssh root@192.168.2.2 cat /sys/module/eink_fb_hal_broads/parameters/bs_orientation`
if [ $orientation == 1 ] ; then
	geometry=1200x824
else
	geometry=824x1200
fi

/usr/bin/Xvnc --SecurityTypes=None -geometry $geometry -depth 16 -dpi 160 -alwaysshared :1 &
sleep 1
DISPLAY=:1 xterm &
DISPLAY=:1 dwm &
vncviewer :1 &
x2vnc -west 127.0.0.1:1 &
ssh root@192.168.2.2 /mnt/us/kindlevncviewer/kvncviewer.sh 192.168.2.1:1

That's what I have in there

Quick question:
How would I go about opening Kindle VNC with KUAL? Is there some documentation about making applications work as extensions?

I fixed the IP, and tried all the different possible permutations but it doesn't seem to work, maybe it is not compatible with the kt5 after all..
