Kindle DX Int'l for experiments...

My Kindle DX got more or less bricked when I recieved the update to 2.5.8: No 3G connection, no Alt-311 page, On Alt-411 is the radio serial line empty, and a search for ';dma' does not created the logfiles in the /documents directory (as it should). So I was entitled to a replacement, it should arrive today...

But, I also recieved an email, that I should not send the old one back, just 'properly dispose' it...

It is more or less working: the 3G is broken, but I can send documents to it through USB and read them. And it seems that I can't create and use collections.

So, what are the possibilities to experiment with it? I am not interested in getting the SIM to work, but if I can put some firmware on which enables me to use collections again, it would be fine: my wife then gets a Kindle for her own... :-)

Any ideas?

Thanks! Worked like a charm.

Now I can put my 'old' books away in collections, so my wife can use the Kindle for her stuff.

If by "experiment", you mean to test things, you can help me if you're not afraid of bricking or can solder recovery ports on.
