Have you Googled it? There are tons of hacks for many different e-books. I have root on my Kindle, and while you can't do a lot with it at the moment because of restrictions in the 3G, it's still kinda cool.

If you're talking about ebook readers, search Google for "how to root [insert ebook-reader here]". Removing DRM from individual ebooks is another matter. Still for these sorts of "How Do I" questions, google is your best friend.

No shit. I was wondering about that a while ago. How'd you do it?

It's very unreliable, and I read about 50 unhelpful posts before I found this, but it works well enough.

I believe the USBNet hack is just a drag-and-drop of a folder into the Kindle. Should be able to find it pretty easily.

Noyce. Back when i was looking into it, some dude was talking about messing with the circuitry. I figured it wasn't worth it.

What do you mean by hack an e-book?

Are you talking about trying to remove the DRM one one that you have bought so you can give it to others?

Or are you talking about already having acquired an e-book from somewhere and trying to import it onto a specific device such as an Ipad e-book app or a kindle?

I myself have an e-book reader called Stanza on my Jailbroken Ipad and I can help you in this case, but I use .epub format books instead of E-books as they seem to be easier to find.
