I used V1.1 with a Usb stick on my netbook to take back my Kindle Touch, Its so easy to use. 10/10 and the great news for me, the problem i used to have with collections manager is now sorted.

What about adding k3flasher and K3 images to Kubrick ?
That would make Kubrick an ultimate debricking tool able to debrick all present Kindle models (well, except PW for obvious reasons).

Go ahead!

Seriously: No, I won't look into it. There's probably not enough space on a CD to hold everything. Flashing K3 requires entirely different tools and logic (and takes about 5 hours). Essentially, Kubrick would have to be rewritten pretty much from scratch.

If you're eager to go for it - go for it. I'm not.

Doesn't matter. Who uses CDs these days anyway ?

I dare to say this is not true.
The logic is the same, even simpler:
  1. Call a command to check we're in USB downloader mode
  2. Call a command to flash kernel
  3. Call a command to flash rootfs
  4. Done. No diags flashing in this case
I don't see how this can be "entirely different".

I would, but without the source code I would have to reimplement everything from scratch - I am not that eager.

Oh... whatever. Sorry for having been a bit grumpy - guess I'm just having a bad day.

I'll take a look at it when I get the time. I guess one could provide USB stick images which contain everything, and ISOs for K3 and K4/K5 respectively. But yes, there are more people than you might think which still use CDs. The iso is being downloaded at least twice as often as the img.

Anyway, if someone could provide statically compiled binaries of k3flasher which "simply work" on kubrick, that'd be appreciated. I can't remember the other steps off the top of my head - only flashed a K3 once - but I guess k3flasher was all that is needed.

(or, ideally, provide exact shell code of the entire procedure from start to end, so I don't have to figure it all out again... thanks!)

PS: The sources *will* be released. The repository is already there, I just need to clean up.

Thanks for reconsidering.

All that's needed is here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...37#post2431337

Checking the USB downloader mode (exits when K3 in USB DL mode is detected):
Code:
./k3flasher ./mx35to2_mmc.bin info
Flashing kernel:
Code:
./k3flasher ./mx35to2_mmc.bin program kernel <path_to_kernel_image>
Flashing rootfs:
Code:
./k3flasher ./mx35to2_mmc.bin program rootfs <path_to_rootfs_image> rootfs 1
The last two parameters work only in dpavlin's k3flasher and have this meaning:
rootfs = continuation address (just a place holder in our case)
1 = read before writing, i.e. read the chunk first, compare with the image and write only if there are any differences. This mode should be faster.

Kindle has to be rebooted manually.

If the image size is a problem, I can implement flashing gzipped images.

Thanks, currently trying it out, everything looks good so far.

As to the gzipped images, that'd be a nice feature, so feel free to implement it. I won't need it though, I'll simply stuff the file into a squashfs image (which is essentially the same as gzip, just mountable), as I did with the Java runtime.

Another question though: does anybody know what the "keys" in mmcblk0p1-3.4+jb+keys.img.gz refers to? I suppose that it's the developer keys, but where are they located in the image? I'd like to remove them, in order to stick to the "pristine+jailbreak only" paradigm used with the other models.

I think the point here is that most people with a working/in-use disc writer probably have a DVD burner.

While I'm posting... thanks for this.

Here is the announcement: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...15#post2262715

That means Geekmaster knows the answer.
Meanwhile I would suspect some file in /opt/amazon/ebook/security/ .
Or maybe he just forgot developer keys dwell in /var/local/, outside of mmcblk0p1.

dev keys, I'm certain it means that... positive.

the 2012 "latest" ones IIRC

I often use that image myself. Never ACTUALLY checked the keys were installed though heh (which as you point out would be "tricky")

Version 2.0

The new Kubrick now washes even whiter!











Oh, wait... wrong claim.

The new Kubrick now also supports the Kindle 3!

I have implemented support for the K3. Everything is ready and seems to be working... (damn, testing that K3 stuff takes a lot of coffee... given that flashing takes at least 2 hours...)

Anyway: now uploading the files. They're not there yet, the upload will take another 2 or 3 hours - big files, many of them, and slow uplink

I'll update the first post once everything is there. If you're impatient, hit the F5 button on the first post until it says "Version 2.0"

I'll prepare the source repository in the mean time.

Special thanks to dsmid for the constructive input and help
