Not the author and not exactly the right place maybe but I saw this on hackaday and there has been some progress on the reader.

It works as an alternate OS and should be unified for all readers, but this is where I think most people will use it. Currently works for kindle 5, but should be ported eventually.

Yeah, right.
Written by a person who describes the working target as a "Kindle 5" and their own device as a "Kindle" - both in the face of a nearly a hundred different models.

See: https://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kindle_Serial_Numbers
Then please be specific about the model(s) you are writing about, otherwise it is all just noise.
