Is this the expected "normal" condition for this image?
That is, to have 5,609 files listed in the rootfs_md5_list but only 4,954 actually present.
As in, maybe that list is from the lab126 development setup rather than the end-user image.
Note: There where no checksum errors uncompressing or unarchiving the image.
The only reason for this question is that I am looking for the "best" 5.1.0 system image file to use as a "development system base".
If this one is as complete as they come...
Well, then this is the one I will use.
Some files (such as the /test directory) get deleted the first time you start and configure your kindle. Also, newer firmware likes to delete the /usr/local folder in a startup script, based on existence of a file on the /var/local persistent user store.
That image was probably made after configuring the kindle (selecting locale, etc.)...
