Note that two kindles with the same serial number can be dangerous. Only swap, don't copy.

How to change SN:
1. Jailbreak
2. Install usbNetwork
3. Run in Kindle shell:
Code:
idme --serial B008A0A0117254NW
B008A0A0117254NW - sample SN
4. Reset Kindle to factory defaults
5. Enjoy
i agree with Yifanlu. This way people might face Whispernet ban

So I changed my DX to use a special offers serial. Two things:
1) I can see ads
2) ACTIVE CONTENT WORKS!

Duokan can be easily installed once you JB-ed your kindle and installed usbnetwork.
Steps (I left a comment on yifan's blog):
1) install yifan's tool to JB your kindle
2) install usbnetwork 0.33
3) copy all duokan's folders to kindle, DK_System, DK_Documents, DK_Picture
4) telnet/ssh to your kindle and run "sh /mnt/us/DK_System/install/install.sh", or put that command to usbnet's script("usbnet/bin/usbnetwork")

They all require jailbreaking before installing, so if you can jailbreak, you can install. It would be really easy for the duokan guys (or anyone) to make a "hack signed" installer package using the jailbreak keys instead of their unsigned packages that requires an exploit to run.

Well, I gave this a try, slow Saturday night and all, to see what would happen. Everything went perfectly, the 3.2.1 jailbreak worked the first time as did the 0.22N screensaver. All updates reported successful. However, none of the newly installed screensavers would show. My Kindle is a KSO 3G so I am assuming that their version of whatever controls the screensavers overrides the hack. Oh well, no big loss.

There must be a way to do this client-side... So changing SN breaks wifi or not?

I changed my dxg's SN follow Sir Alex's post 48 to some starts with B006, but saddly that my 3G net doesn't work. Though the active content works.
Have I missed some steps? Need I change the mac address?

Could someone please mirror the jailbreak files on megaupload or similar? Yifanlu's site is down. Thanks!
