What do you mean by "hacking the registration process"?

If you have an Amazon account, register your device normally, and if you have technical difficulties, call Amazon CS.

If you don't have an Amazon account, use the Kindle without registering it. There would be no point, and no advantage, in "pretending" that the device is registered. All registered features are tightly coupled to your Amazon account, and interaction with Amazon's servers.

Some folks do not want to register using WiFi for fear that Amazon will track them but want the ability to use collections and the like, which requires regstration. They look for a hack rather than just turning the WiFi on once, either at home or a near by store with free WiFi, registering and than never turning the WiFi on again.

That's not true. You need to register the Kindle to create collections, or even to set the bloody time. (although ;st yyyy-mm-dd HH:MM works well in regards to time.)

It is possible to "fake register" your KT and unlock all features (i.e. Collections).
You have to place a file with the name "reginfo" in "/var/local/java/prefs/" (same method as for k2 and k3 i think, but the format of the file differs).
Here a modified example of the "reginfo" file i used today to register my kindle touch (Fw: 5.1.0):

Nice finding... but this will only work as long as you never turn on WLAN. As soon as you turn Wireless on, your device is unregistered again, and you end up with a device that has collections to which you can't add items anymore.

So all that is needed now is a start-up script that copies a template file to the proper file. That should be easy to do. The downside then, of course, if yoiu ever *did* register the Kindle, the registration information would get wrecked at next re-start.
