Kindle Touch gets dev-level hack through MP3 song
A hacker named Yifan Lu has just revealed a very simple way to jailbreak the new Kindle Touch. It onl involves downloading a ZIP file that contains an MP3 file, copying it onto the device and playing it from the official experimental menu. The file contains a developer key and lets users install other modifications that aren't officially sanctioned by Amazon.
The code does open the door for further modifications and added functionality, such as potential ePub readers or other HTML5 apps. [via TheDigitalReader]
