kindle 4nt privacy

hi folks,

I recently bought a kindle 4nt because there was a special amazon offer. Now I jailbreaked it and installed CoolReader as well as Liberator on it and I'm pretty happy. There is one thing that still bothers me: Here in the forums I read about amazons policy of collecting data while using the kindle, but I'm not sure if the method to stop them from it is appropriate anymore.

I own a Kindle 4 NT (black edition, 2012) with 4.1.0 jailbreaked.

I would be glad if the others would share experiences with that device with me.

Regards

I'm just preparing a detailed tutorial about this for the german forum.

Anyway, there are some very simple steps to stop anybody from collecting any data from your Kindle:
  • Turn Wifi off and never turn it on again
  • Don't use your real name to purchase books, use a new Amazon account for your Kindle
  • Keep your books and clippings private
If you can read german (or know how to use Google Translate) you can find some further reading here.
