This is just a note to say that I only turned on my wireless briefly today, but at some point it auto downloaded the 5.0.4 update, and after about 10 minutes (with wireless turned off) there was a forced reboot which installed them. Afterwards everything still worked on my jailbroken Kindle: usbnet, root password, and custom screensavers.*But if you're worried that future updates may try to ruin our picnic, keep that wireless turned off, or else take some kind of steps as described in this thread.

I tried out JustAMan's method for disabling OTA updates, since it seemed the simplest (although the other methods have their own advantages) adding this line to /etc/hosts:

127.0.0.1 todo-g7g.amazon.com

It works! Sending items in my library to myself wirelessly doesn't do anything, and yet when I request them from my Kindles archive screen it does download them. Browser works fine. Interestingly, the items that I sent while the URL was blocked never arrive. But when I disable that line and make another request to have them sent they appear within 5 seconds.

That speed makes me want to learn more about how the todo process works: is it constantly pinging amazon, like every second? Do we know all the different things that can be done through todo, or is it unlimited? Is this definitely the only way that firmware updates happen, i.e. the todo server downloads the update to /mnt/us and a reset is triggered?
