Kindle Touch: execute script when wifi connection is established

I'm trying to trigger a script when wifi connection goes up, so I placed it in /etc/network/if-up.d (a symbolic link to it to be specific, but I guess that doesn't matter). The script has the correct permissions, but is not executed automatically.

Anyone knows if it's possible to trigger a script when network connection is established?

TIA.

You can make an upstart script that triggers on whatever combination of conditions you want. Just model it after scripts in /etc/upstart. Be VERY careful, because ANY script that fails can make the rest of them NOT run, bricking your kindle.

Wow, that sounds scary. Thanks for the hint (and the warning), I'll have a look at /etc/upstart, and not write anything for the time being, there's much (almost all) of KT internals I don't know.

It was a LOT more scary when you had to solder serial port wires inside your kindle to debrick it. Not so bad now that we have USB "simple debricking" methods (even for the K3 now).

You will need this to get started: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/cookbook/upstart_cookbook.pdf

Agreed!
That's exactly how I bricked mine!
