Kindle syslog file

I'm trying to understand the syntax in the Kindle syslog file. From my deciphering, it looks like the sample syslog file identifies both the Kindle location and the cell tower location. It appears that the Kindle has recorded a connection with a cell tower at the "HDR Lat/Long" coordinates -- I used cellreception.com to identify a cell site owned by Nextel, probably leased to Sprint -- and the device coordinates locating the Kindle to a point near 20450 Stevens Blvd., in Cupertino, CA.

Does this makes sense? Can someone capture and post a similar logfile?

Code:
090719:161519 wand[1661]: I e725:diag: t=4a644ff6,SID=4183,NID=87,
Base ID=744,Network Svc Type=EVDO,Bars=5,

Do you need the Usbnetwork hack to apply these hacks? How does one apply these?

I second this question as well.

From what I can tell as a customer, yes; but with a caveat. If you have highlighted or notated a non-Amazon book, Amazon will retain a copy of those notes and underlinings. Otherwise, when you delete a non-Amazon book, it disappears altogether.

I am speaking here of what is available for me as a customer to see when I log into my Amazon account. Now, whether Amazon maintains secret records on its customers, I can't say.

This hack doesn't work on the K2i, it needs to be re-evaluated.

any way to update this hack for the recent 2.3 update. I tried following all the scripting and stuff and gave up after a while.

I figured chmodding the showlog script to 0 would probably break things and probably be pointless given the framework account so....yeah.

what I want to do right now is set the print_stream*/print_gzip* functions to return something wacky and forget about it, but since the framework account has a login im not sure how useful that would be.

I am assuming the default account is... whats used to read books but im probably wrong about that.

now short of trying to port ipchains or ipfw or something and just denying inbound im not sure how to actually feel warm and fuzzy about all this :/

bleh. im tired, someone make this make sense :/

We need to get something similar going for DX. I think mine is in order, but I'm not savvy enough to do all of the similar tasks on my own.

For 2.3, on my Kindle DX, I made this change right near the end of /usr/bin/showlog:

else # Sending full logs
print_stream_header `ls $ARCHIVE_DIR/${LOG}_*.gz | wc -l ` >> $OUTFILE
$GZIP_HEADER_TYPE `ls $ARCHIVE_DIR/${LOG}_*.gz | xargs ` >> $OUTFILE
fi
echo "" > $OUTFILE # GeekRaver's hax

Just the last line is mine; the rest is to show the context. That just replaces the logs with an empty string.

Earlier in the file there is a line:

OUTFILE=/dev/stdout

which I changed to:

OUTFILE=/dev/null
