Automate USBNetworking Commands

After jailbreaking the K3 and installing the USBNet, you must physically type in ;debugon and ~usbnetwork on the Kindle. What I am trying to figure out is if it is possible to run a script of some sort on CentOS to run those commands. Or is there another way to automatically enable USB network without having to type in the commands??

I was hoping xdotool would work but I would need terminal access in the Kindle before I could use xdotool.

Has anyone been able to automate this process??

Thanks

Install KUAL.
If those control buttons for USBnet are not enough automation, read the README.txt file in the USBnetworking package.

I am assuming I can automate the process of installing the Kindlet Kit on the K3 and then KAUL on the K3. Once I do that, I need help understanding how KAUL would help automate the process of turning on USBNetwork (~usbnetwork).

I've already automated the process of pushing the jailbreak Update_*_install.bin file to the kindle. I then automatically push the usbnet file to the kindle and "update my kindle".

I have never used KAUL. I have read the installation process Here. Would it be possible to automate the process of clicking the "update my kindle" button with KAUL before I have access to the terminal on the kindle?

Thanks

KUAL is not required **for that** -
Read the USBnetworking package README.txt file.

Or update your automated scripting to have your PC do a text-to-speech conversion and read it to you before pushing the package to the Kindle.

On FW 5.x, triggering an update programmatically is trivial (cf. KUAL's helper ext.). On 3.x, you'll probably need to get slightly more creative (or let it idle and let the framework take care of it)..
