run script on wifi connect


i just jailbroke my kindle and i had a question. My university network requires a login via a webpage so that I can access the internet. It is a complete pain in the ass to deal with that on a kindle. I have a script that I use on my computer that uses curl to post to the web form and login and I was wondering if there would be any way to have said script run after every time my kindle tries to connect to one of those networks. Thanks

SSH to your Kindle and run: mntroot rw

You can then put your script in /etc/network/if-up.d/ and edit the /etc/network/interfaces file and add this line at the end of the file after "iface wlan0 inet dhcp"
post-up /etc/network/if-up.d/
Remember to chmod +x your script and to mntroot ro when you're done.

You could probably check the SSID in the script to see if you are connecting to your university access point, but that's up to you.

Hope that helps.
