How to connect my kindle3 using ssh from mc?
In terminal I put:
Code:
ssh root@192.168.1.4 -i ./key.key
(key.key is my private key)
After some time got this:
Quote:
Welcome to Kindle!

#################################################
# N O T I C E * N O T I C E * N O T I C E #
#################################################
Rootfs is mounted read-only. Invoke mntroot rw to
switch back to a writable rootfs.
#################################################
[root@kindle root]#
So, I have shell access to kindle. But how to browse files using mc?
TNX!

Well, there's no mc on the kindle. You either would have to install it there (e.g. using optware or debian - but I would not recommend it). Or you just use it on your desktop. Check mc's menu (F9), in the "left" and "right" menus it should have an entry called "shell link...". You can use that to connect your desktop mc to the kindle's SSH daemon. Check mc's help page for the syntax!

I know how to use ssh from mc, because I actually use it for transfering files via some pc's. But where should I have to input private key's path? In mc's "shell link..." I have to just input <name@address>, but there's no option to input private key.
Thanks anyway!

Ah, OK. I think you should create a ~/.ssh/config file with a config section, specifying the key. However, I don't know if mc can properly ask for a key passphrase, so it might sense to have an ssh-agent running, too.

The section in the file would look like:

Host kindle
Hostname 192.168.1.4
IdentityFile ~/key.key
User root

and you can connect using "kindle" as the host to connect to.

See ssh_config(5), ssh-agent(1).

I tried to change the font on my new KK and now I cant see anything but menus. I can't even "update" I guess I will have to factory reset and report back =[


Edit------

So, I managed to get the thing up and running again though when i tried to uninstall and reinstall the fonts hack it happened again. I had to go back in and delete a font.. The font I tried to put on was the droid sans.. and Borked the whole thing. I had overwrote the files in the linkfont/fonts folder.

Any question on what do to and how to change my font safely?

Also, it may prevent you from actually _seeing_ the Settings page to do the restart. (And actually reading any books, also.) If that happens to you, try one of the three methods described earlier to reboot your Kindle. If you want to avoid this kind of issue, use the autoreboot feature Also, don't remove the other fonts found in the linkfonts/fonts folder. We need them, and the hack won't be applied if they're missing.


[...]


Again, if you're having issues with the Fonts hack (missing fonts, blank pages/menu, ...), do try to use one of the new freetype override settings! In the same vein, disable your Kindle's password before switching fonts, there's been reports that a messed up font will prevent the password box from popping up, in which case you won't be able to unlock your device... And that probably means a hard reset to factory defaults will be needed to clear things up, and that's never fun ;'(.

Exclamation HELP REQUIRED PLEASE

Hi,

I previously installed a jailbreak and SS hack on to my Kindle 3 Wifi. Since then I have lost the hard drive in the PC and the appropriate files.

The readme states that to remove the hack/jailbreak I should use the original unistaller that came with the package, but I can no longer find the package I originally downloaded.

The device and hack details are as follows:

Kindle 3 Wifi (B008) - Firmware V3.1
Screensaver Hack: Version 0.22.N (from info.txt)
Jailbreak: Version 0.7.N (from info.txt)

Does anyone know where I can find these packages so I can remove the hacks, or even just the relevant uninstall files?

Thanks in advance.

After using font hack, I want to use the original kindle font for English and some other font for CJK. after editing font.properties-3, nothing had changed. My firmware was 2.5.8 and I don't want to upgrade to 3.x. and there is no CJK info in font.properties-2.

Does 2.x use font.properties-2 for font control?
If not, how can I accomplish my wish?

Thanks.

@kiltedknite: No, in fact, the readme states the *exact* opposite. You can safely use the latest uninstallers with these hacks.

@maniux: Nope, no specific CJK support on FW 2.x, you'll have to do it the hard way (through the Serif family).

I ran the latedt uninstaller for the screensaver hack and the linkss folder remains. Is that normal? Is it safe to remove manually?
