HowTo get root on a Kindle

So in 3 days I will have in my hands an Amazon Kindle. The prospect of having a wireless web browser with a decent screen and no monthly fee is pretty cool to start with. Not to mention the whole e-book on e-ink thing. And guess what? it runs on Linux.

However what self respecting diy/maker/hacker/tinkerer would want to stop there? Of course being somewhat of a generalist I prefer to stand on the shoulders of giants. Enter Igor Skochinsky who figured out the pinout of the console jack and how to get a command line. I already own a TTL-USB cable...

Now I just wonder if dropbear will run on it?
