Two components:

2. decode the video data on the USB cable and display it on KT

Needed:
VGA to USB converter

</This is a placeholder>
If you need to install a software driver (component #1 above) on the host PC anyway, you might as well do it from video memory to USB and skip the VGA to USB converter. You could pass a remote framebuffer over wifi too. That is what VNC does (a version of component #2 above).

I can see an exception IF the VGA to USB conversion is done completely inside the VGA/USB converter (shown in the photo) with no device driver.

A folder based home screen instead of Amazon's amazing idea of a flat tire.

It's possible to use collections and related hacks, but it's cumbersome.

Please provide a more detailed description of what you want, or what you want it to look like, how you want it to behave.

That reads like a question, not a statement describing a desired addition.

Did you notice the title of the thread you are posting in?

21 - A method of showing launcher options in the same was as Collections Manager and JBPatch
I'd love a way to add launcher shortcuts to the book list in the way ixtab has managed it, but in the form of a tool which could add and remove them on the fly on the kindle itself, like the Collections Manager. I would like the tool to be hidden away, however, in the launcher menu, so that it may add the shortcuts to the book list without adding clutter itself.

@BillyBigStuff: What kite did, in essence? I fail to see the interest when we can have the pretty Launcher instead, but, err, if you *really* need that, there's a 'runner' Kindlet laying around here somewhere, that does just that: run something. And since it's a Kindlet, it's in the Home screen as a development active content.

It could be modified version of this one . I'm not sure though.

VERY [un]likely?!

22. JNLP (Java Web Start) for ARM
Investigation of jnlp mechanism, how to get them run on Kindle and/or (if not possible) think about the alternatives to JWS.

23. fastboot flashing right from within Kindle:
(not impossible) flash kernels with fastboot with a script run from Kindle without the need to attach Kindle to a PC/laptop.

Note: This idea came to my mind, inspired by and thanks to this post by eureka.

You cannot run a script on the kindle when it is in fastboot mode.

You SHOULD be able to write directly to the mmc (/dev/mmcblk0), except for the protected areas, from a script using "dd" with offset, but only to areas not currently in use. You do not have such limitations when using fastboot.

Oh, I mean when in main mode, run fastboot from Kindle itself, flash kernel main and diags -> switch mode to diags -> dd main -> boot
All this automated with a script, with an ARM x-compiled fastboot. Still no cigar?

Supposedly we can't flash kernels when we're in main?!

My scenario is to be able to switch between KT 5.0.0 and 5.1.0 run from Kindle, with the same freedom that those who run dualboot Duokan and KindleOS have. This might have some use in future too!

You should be able use "dd" to write to the kernel that is not being used, AFAIK. Write diags kernel from main, or main kernel from diags. I have not tried it though, so YMMV.
