Stanza can also use these files with no jailbreaking needed, and it's got a much better interface.

Easily find correct kindle folder
Authored by: apparissus on Jun 02, '09 04:27:04PM

If you tend to ssh into your ipod/iphone, you can easily figure out the correct folder to put your kindle .prc books into by ssh'ing into your device and running this command:

ls -d /var/mobile/Applications/*/Documents/eBooks

You should see a single entry returned, which is the full path to your kindle app's eBooks folder. For bonus points, install rsync from Cydia and easily push new books to your kindle app from your Mac or linux box.
