If you want to have the extra features you get without registering your Kindle on Whispernet (won't work via USB networking), telnet to your device and run vi to create a new file called "reginfo" in /var/local/java/prefs

Add this to the file (substitute the items in caps with your own information).

<user_device_name>YOUR KINDLE'S NAME ON AMAZON</user_device_name>

Then reboot and you're good. Tested on a Kindle DX running 2.1
Hi friend. I did what you refer at here. But since i couldnt use linux commands before, i couldnt get a success to write <text> area on "reginfo" file.
Already i could connected via telnet and created a root directory like others has wrote here. But at that section which we should have to write <text> by callin "vi" command on prefs directory to create reginfo file, we stocked.
So, can you please tell basically step by step as you tell for dummies.
We really need to do this...
By now.. many thanks.. Friend..
