Yes, /mnt/us is what is exported over USB mass storage.

I'm sorry for unclear instruction. I've updated steps for users that doesn't use SSH.
Should be okay now

Greetings, thank you so much for this plugin.

Just installed this on my PW 4 running 5.10.0.2, is there a definite way to check the Kindle won't update? I haven't connected to Wi-Fi but wanted to make sure before enabling it.

I also wanted to ask if having Helper+ installed previously could affect this extension. Just before installing BinaryRemover, I re-enabled back the "PREVENT OTA UPDATE" option and removed the "update.bin.tmp.partial" folder as indicated. I also never installed renametobin beforehand.

It's iffy whether the update.bin.tmp.partial works beyond 5.9.x

Starting around 5.10.x the firmware has code to forcibly delete it but it is not known when it actually got enabled.

So far there have been no credible reports of renameotabin failing. It always turns out that someone didn't actually run it after installing.

Thank you for this. I've always wanted a log disabler.

Do you know if the empty log files are still sent to Amazon, or does this somehow prevent them from being sent?

Is it still working? Could you please tell me your firmware version?

Does running this script have a significant impact on battery life of the device?

All it does is rename some files. It's not constantly churning in the background.

Just wanted to drop in and say that this KUAL plugin/app is working great. The PW5 and KT3 have ventured onto the Information Superhighway, as it was once known, and have not been molested by the Mothership FW wise. Be aware though that logblocking has broken some features for me such as Kindle Unlimited but that is easily reversed by resuming logging
