I guess it is time I jail broke my DX and DXG devices.

I have been leaving them un-touched, with one registered and one not registered, just to have them factory standard.

With the departure of our developer who did have a jail broken DXG -
I guess having these jail broken would be more useful than making sure they stay factory stock.

@NiLuJe: Thanks, I confirm Update Successful.

Oh boy, I was questioning my sanity last night, I was like 'Goddamnit have I become a noob once again or what?!'
Well I believe we all are to some extent (or better be), for life... humility is an unparalleled fruitful virtue.

Also, as I'd like to have a clean /mnt/us/, I always manually move stuff to my applications directory, so linkfonts now peacefully resides in /mnt/us/applications/linkfonts

Yes, indeed. These is beautiful device and as twobob once said, very underdeveloped.

I am most probably staying on 2.5.8 and GUI-chrooting to 3.4.2, because v3.* is reportedly having some issues that will make this eReader suffer esp. as I'm using it as my main device (and for now, the only one)...
I swear I'm actually reading on this thing, rather than tweaking it. hahaha Besides,

@knc1: Speaking of chance of screwing DX(G): We had diags+ssh for K5. Has this been done for DX(G)?

Again sorry to quasi-hijack the thread.

@idoit: Great, thanks for testing .

That said, the directory structure for my stuff is pretty much set in stone; if you move linkfonts somewhere else, it *will* break.

Don't worry, I'll be good & safe.
The fonts are beautiful. New blood in my Kindle... Now going to add some Persian fonts.

End of hijack

I don't recall reading of one.

But nearly all of the DX(G) postings where before I joined, so I could easily have missed it.

But back to your question - I think it would be a good idea that we add one, if the factory didn't already ship us one on the device.

And maybe a DX(G) version of the Coward's Rescue Pack to match.

The diags partition is quite small (24Mbyte) and /var/local is even smaller (8Mbyte), see:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...7&postcount=46
(open the spoiler)

In my thread "ARMhf for Kindles" (or something like that - 'tutorial') I give examples of building executibles that use modern software version and run from USBstorage - without touching the Amazon install.

The point here is not hard float, but that things are built to use a modern libc version that lives in /mnt/us (user storage).
It could just as well use musl.

The FW 2.x devices are NOT dual-boot devices, IIRC. No diags as such, but the rescue shell at boot, and the ancestors of the diags tests lying somewhere in main.

I think they are devices that stored a primary and alternate boot image (with a single root file system).

Perhaps even a primary and alternate u-boot image as well.

(Flash storage hardware wasn't trusted so much, back in those days.)

I still have a backup copy of twobob's DX - on a per-device basis.
There are 14 storage devices (or partitions) on the DX.
I'll push that copy to kpool/dxg in case you want to look at it.
(It will probably be safer there anyway, I am about to perform major surgery on my own PC's storage system.)

Edit:
Working, should be there in about 1-1/2 hours.
