More iRiver story news

Mikhail Gusarov contacted me today about my iRiver story findings.

He’s involved in openinkpot, a Linux e-reader distro. Based on my initial findings he’s been able to execute arbitrary code based on the elisamake_sh script

You can read more about his findings and details here

I hadn’t heard of openinkpot before. It looks like a interesting and useful project that I’ll be following closely, even though the iRiver story won’t be supported for a while.

    @Renee, please read the other blog posts about the iRiver and specifically the comments. There are ways to restore/fix/hack your e-reader (and someone actually just succeeded in doing that)
