But ESPECIALLY so we can continue to help debrick kindles for people who found us AFTER your firmware updates bricked their unmodified kindle.
Please continue to add features and fix bugs (instead of adding new bugs like 5.1.0 did, which bricked a lot of kindles). But while you are making things BETTER, do not lock us out!
Adding obfuscation to the java code in 5.1.0 is very annoying but does not really slow anybody down. Please stop doing that crap, okay?
Shamelessly plugging in here.
While you're at it... this post
contains a similar request, and similar arguments (read the parts in red).
This forum is not
a threat to you. On the contrary: We are, in fact, helping you to make your products better, and we support your user base. So please, just stop making our lives more difficult for no reason.
