Kindle Diagnostics Mode

Hey all,

I stumbled over something interesting today, and I couldn't find anything about it on the forums...

Anyways, if you place a blank file named ENABLE_DIAGS in the root directory of the Kindle, eject it, and reboot it (Settings->Menu->Reboot), the Kindle will boot into a Diagnostic Mode.

Enjoy!

... Which outputs most of the interesting stuff to the serial console, if I remember correctly .

(Alternatively, telinit 2 to switch to the diag runlevel, and telinit 4 to get out of it properly).
