Yeah, I too wish this would work. I installed it with no errors, but cUrl doesn't appear to be working, since it doesn't pop up. This hack would be cool to have, but no luck.

Does the browser in Touch need such a hack? Does any of the bin files work for it?

You should have both /mnt/us and /mnt/base-us.

In general, "/base-*" mount points mount an image or partition with limited access rights. The startup scripts usually use /mnt/us, and we should too, to prevent problems.

It would be great if this hack would work on the K5. I am using the Hackedupreader and with this hack I could download my epubs directly!

I think the "duplicity" is only due to fuse-fsp, which Amazon put in between. It allows to "suspend" all access to the user partition for running processes without throwing errors (just keep 'em hanging and waiting for the call to return), though is able to "cut off" bounds to the underlying file system so that can easily be unmounted and exported via USB. It's a rather clever way to allow this export mechanism. As a related note: In Android, they stopped exporting USB via mass storage emulation due to the rather complicated issues that arise when a partition needs to be unmounted for exporting it. They are now using MTP (with fallback to PTP), similar to what I do on my Kindle (only using SCP/SFTP via USB networking).

Well, and this definitely means that /mnt/us is what we should be using for everything - as long as we want to prevent serious bugs due to improper access to the exported user partition.

I was unable to find any response to that question on the five pages of this thread.

Where you able to find any responses to that question on the pages of this thread?

Since this thread has been quit for two months, it is probably time for someone to find out the answer:

Did you try it on your K5?
What was the result?

Acording to this post by jib, it does not work on the touch. I'm just throwing ideas around because this looks cool but if the browser on the touch logs info also maybe we can do something similar for the touch. I don't have time to really look into it right now but nothing is stopping you or someone else.
