I'm in the same boat except my 'morals' are rather questionable and therefore will provide dubious support!! (but they're welcome to it!)

And it has spurred me on to start retro-ftting my k5 solutions to the k3.

much appreciated.

I would be shocked if this is unjailbreakable for the average person in 3-4 weeks.

that being said, I may be buying a soldering iron and practicing my hand to get to that serial port if it's not. I have lots of experience with unix and some with linux, but none with a soldering gun.

Prepare to be shocked.
This one is not going to be easy.
We taught lab126 too much about what not to do.

An end-user jailbreak vector on the Kpw2 may be hard to find, and may take awhile (if it is possible at all).

So for a bit of inspiration:



Yes, I know I have used that clip before, but there are people here who really like it.

All I remember from that song is "it goes on and on and on..." - but I am confident the brilliant boys and girls on this forum will crack their whips at the Kindle PW2 and get it to cower down and spill all it's secrets in due time - including a way to add custom fonts - even if it takes some time.

Help from Amazon?

Amazon Web Services offers a FREE trial account on their EC2 supercomputer:
http://aws.amazon.com/free/?sc_ichan...sc_icountry=US

This is not a 'small' machine:
http://www.top500.org/system/177457

750 hours / month on that machine could analyze a lot of firmware.
Even if that is "total core time" -
an hour a month on 750 cores -
or
6 minutes a month on 7,500 cores (about 1/2 the machine) -


Hmm...
I do have a password file I would like to 'crack' . . . .

knc1 are you suggesting using amazon to try and hack their own hardware?
If so, I like where you're going with your logic.
If not, why not?

hmm...
MR has around 300,000 members -
One free account on the EC2 per member (with user/pass shared with developers) -
Times 17,000 cores -

It might be possible to analyze 5.4.0 for security holes.
Just as a favor to Amazon of course.
