"Rotate screen" and "Prevent screensaver" launchpadlets are missing in the list.

Added some more hacks and a tagging system. It tells some basic requirements for hacks, such as NJ: no jailbreak needed, UN: USB Networking is needed, and LP: Launchpad is needed.

Great post! Here is a nice overview of the internals, maybe also worth a link.
http://linux-tipps.blogspot.com/2011...el-config.html

And here is a way to access the kindle via wifi + ssh with a launchpad shortcut (requires usbNetwork and launchpad): http://linux-tipps.blogspot.com/2011...wifi-with.html

Wow! This was needed.
By the way I think you meant MANGA instead of MAGNA.

Good Job.

@Mario1Up in your next sticky update, some people have asked if you could add to the developer tools this link http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...95#post1772095 which requires USB Networking.

The physkeyb has newer versions with timeout in the thread. Wouldn't it be better to remove the hotlink?

If I miss any, please feel free to post them here and I will add them. If you think a hack should go into a different category or there should be a new category, please go ahead and say so.
This 'mntusb' script allows connecting multiple kindles simultaneously to a host linux PC, where they will all be usable at the same time.

I expanded on a 'mntusb' script I had posted elsewhere on this forum. Previously, it required command-line parameters to specify which kindle number and which usb number.

This version is all automatic. It finds the kindles and assigns each of them a unique HWaddr MAC address, and an IPv4 address in a unique IP subnet, as defined in their /mnt/us/usbnet/config files.

I use 10.10.x.x/24 subnets because they will not conflict with 192.168.x.x addresses already assigned to common networking devices.

For each kindle number 1 to 9, The script "pings" 10.10.x.2 subnet range 1 to 9 to find newly attached kindles.

This script also lists which IP and MAC addresses are assigned to all of the kindles, so is useful to run just to get information about them.

This script may also be useful to run in the background as a scheduled daemon task.

*** UPDATE 2011 Nov 22 ***

The script source code and attached file have been updated to tell the Gnome Network Manager to stop messing with the usbnet connections. This should stop the problems with spontaneous usbnet disconnects. It will have to be repeated whenever another usb network device is attached. (Thanks ryran)

Source code:
Spoiler:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
### mntusb - find and mount usb kindles at 10.10.x.2
### This script runs on a linux host (not on the kindles).
### Each kindle must be on a different IPv4 subnet (unique 'x' above).
### Kindle subnets are set in the /mnt/us/usbnet/etc/config file. 
echo Mounting usb network kindles...
for U in $(nmcli dev|awk '/usb.*connecting/{print$1}'); do

Sample output from mntusb script testing:

Sample output from ifconfig after plugging in kindle4, then kindle2, then kindle3:

As you can see, they all have the same HWaddr, which will prevent all but one of them from working no matter WHAT IPv4 addresses get assigned to them.

          inet addr:10.10.3.1  Bcast:10.10.3.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
As you can see, linux assigned different usb device numbers after they were reconnected in a different order.

If you uncomment the lines marked as "Optional" in 'mntusb', the script will also mount the kindle file systems in the linux host PC as /mnt/kindle* folders.

Question about code location

@Mario1: Is this a good place to post code? Should it go in a separate thread with only a link here?

I moved the previous code that I had posted here back to this thread:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=158589

I just discovered that my program only worked in my kindle debian build environment. It *was* working when called by launchpad, so something changed when I cleaned it up. I will repost when I get it working right...

UPDATE: I figured out the problem -- an unused buffer pointer in the ua structure was no longer set to NULL.
