Yes, sorry, it was me, when I went to update my s/n, I noticed you were missing from the Hall of Fame.

thanks, Ela.
maybe i should print one of those "and all i got was this lousy t-shirt".

i bought an iliad
i hacked an iliad
i bricked an iliad
and all i got was this lousy t-shirt.
(and an entry in the hall of fame)



Unfortunately i'll be more or less absent for the next few days (important exam next week tuesday).
Things i expect to be up and running until i'm back:
- fbreader compiled with the new toolchain
- hid module for the kernel
- the root password
- ssh daemon for 2.5
- a way to flash iliads using CF, SD or USB

so long, and thanks for all the fish =)

Thanks for reminding me I have to read the Hitchhiker again, on the iLiad, it'll be a great experience.

Is the hack supposed to work with yesterday's update? I tried and it didn't work for me.

I am afraid it is not working anymore. I have tryed to go step by step across the flashing of the software but is seems they have altered the upgrade procedure and I have gone into the full install too. So now I am as trapped as the rest of 2.5 people are.

Hmm STUPID!!!! I can not edit the linuxrc install file, it is in a readonly filesystem event if it seems a read/write! So my edits have not survived.

It kinda pisses me off that the iLiad can have internet connection and they deliberately cripple it. Having a wireless connection just for IDS is plain stupid.

Yes it is.

Stick to 2.4 then? There is not way back :-(

also, the configuration file is wrote again, so the shell execution hack did not work neither.

No problem. Just buy a handful of care&repair vouchers and they'll hire a few programmers. (let's say 20k euros worth of care&repair for a start)

Update:

i will buy care&repair vouchers, but only enough to restore my iliad.

just received the mail:

Quote:
You may contact our help desk to open a ticket for repair.
They have been instructed how to proceed.

Expected repair costs are between 75 to 100E. You will be instructed to purchase vouchers for that amount at the shop.
the bright side: i'll have an working iliad again (yeah!)
the not so bright side: they most probably will install v2.5

i'll keep you informed.

@ali:

You think compiling fbreader and an kernel module would cost iRex 20k€?
That's about 100 hours with a 200€/hour contractor.

Update 2:

Quote:
In the next few days you will receive a transport box, a return label and shipping instructions.

Please read the shipping instructions carefully and follow the steps and details provided.

The estimated costs for the repair of your iLiad will be 75,- €. as it is out of warranty.
Now it's official: Hacking your Iliad voids your warranty.

It was to be expected. But then again, now we have a pretty good idea what the worst damage would be in monetary terms when one bricks his iLiad.

Btw, I love your t-shirt
