comment How can force my screen to unblank?
I have been trying to, but none of them seem to address this particular blanking instance. To make sure that I am changing the right values I have been modifying the values so they are very small and trying to make it happen more frequently. This has not produced anything yet though :\ I'm currently fiddling with the kernel to see if I can remove blanking all together though so hopefully that will do it ;)

comment Why is the restart inittab action asking me for an id?
I guess you were right, I changed the action to 'once' instead of 'restart' (which doesn't seem to be documented anywhere),changed the id to mine, and removed the killall5. It successfully ran the ubiformat I needed after kill -HUP 1. Thanks for the help

comment Why is the restart inittab action asking me for an id?
The part I am confused about though is that in the tutorial he uses the "restart" action without the "id". What id should I be entering if I want that shell script to be started "instead of init as PID1" (This is the functionality that is described in that tutorial.) Would it matter what id I choose?

comment How do I power down on reboot?
As it turns out my device was in a bad state, when I got it back into the production state (where the kernel panics would happen) the kernel panics wouldn't happen on reboot any more!
