You don't need to create the script.
I know this is kind of an old thread, but I was wondering if anyone could help me out with removing the ads off of my kindle 4 NT. I tried using these lines of code and got access denied. The username I used was "framework" password "mario". As none of the root usernames would work for me.

I wanted to try this method, but I wasn't exactly sure how to do it. So I decided against it. If anyone could shed some light on how to remove ads on the 4.1.0 firmware I would be very grateful. All the information on the wiki seems to be outdated.

mntroot rw
if [ ! -f /var/local/adunits.bkp ]; then
	mv /var/local/adunits /var/local/adunits.bkp
	touch /var/local/adunits
mntroot ro
Save, exit and make the following:
chmod +x /mnt/us/; mntroot rw
Make a backup about the mntus.params file with this:
cp /var/local/system/mntus.params /var/local/system/mntus.params.BKP
Extend the original mntus.params with the followings:
if [ -e /mnt/us/ ]; then
	sh /mnt/us/
If you would like to see a log then change the "sh /mnt/us/" with "sh /mnt/us/ > /mnt/us/RUNME.log"

If you are ready, just create and link the screensaver folder, just like before:

mkdir /mnt/us/screensaver
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/base-mmc
mv /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800 /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800.bkp
ln -sfn /mnt/us/screensaver /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800
