One of Igor's famous easter eggs is this:

Shift-Sym start demo
Enabled only if allow_demo=true is passed on the Java commandline. Needs a special demo script present on the SD card.

Any idea what the "special script" is? I have never seen any reference to it. This sounds like a potential trapdoor to me. If it is, maybe my fantasy of an "image pan and zoom" is realizable.

This is not a question regarding DRM or the Amazon license to use the Kindle. We're not talking about cracking ebooks. We're talking about making the Kindle do things. Here in the Developer's Corner, discussions concerning the hardware and software on the Kindle are pertinent. Legal issues of content distribution have nothing to do with it.

So. Moving on:

The question is, could the function for starting the demo allow the launching of other applications on the Kindle? It's a good question. I'd like to discuss it.

Has anyone spotted a Kindle with a demo script on an SD card, one which might indicate the nature of the script?
