USB Network help?

I am seeing alot of talk about something called USB Network for kindle, and I think you can use it on a kindle paperwhite. If so, can someone give me a link to where you install the usb network, and possible instructions on how to use it?
I can't seem to find the download, or anything on how to use it :P

You need to check the developer sub forum. Check the stickys there first, and also check out the wiki. For USBNetwork check out the thread: Kindle Touch/PaperWhite 5.1.x & 5.2.0 JailBreak

I believe that it is a hackers tool, not for the average reader. If u do not know what u are doing u may brick your New PW.

Though you can play video on your Kindle if u do suss it out. But for most users they just want custom fonts and screensavers and a better PDF reader or cool reader etc.

While you're right that it's probably not the best idea for an average user to install usbnetwork and do things that they don't understand, it's not a "hacker's tool" in any way. It's simply a way to get command line access to the kindle operating system. That's totally normal and basic functionality for any Linux system. But yes, it does allow to shoot yourself in the foot if you're not careful.

Thank you knc1. The first post you linked probably says the most important thing right at the beginning:

The only complain I have is the wiki. Of course I don't expect full documentation, but one link in there would be nice: a link towards at least download location of usbnetwork for Kindle Touch / PW. That is the main reason I did not simply link to the wiki in post #2. I think that if you did not already know or seen it before, it is really hard to find - even if employing search in the forum.

Correct -
As a quick fix - a summary here:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...01&postcount=7

If a person searches hard enough and long enough they will find the thread that **was supposed** to contain the step-by-step noobie to ssh guide.

Only the author never completed the thread by posting the directions.
(Which is why it never got indexed.)

Author to blame: knc1

Go here and grab the 'raw' version:
http://hg.minimodding.com/repos/lua/...le_install.pdf
Read only Part II, Section 2.2 - Client side.

That was going to be the source of the step-by-step directions that I never got around to converting into "Kindle Specific" and posting last spring.
