I'm trying to get some DRM'd mobipocket books using my Kindle PID. I'm having some trouble, unfortunately.

First off... which numbers in the "serial" area do I use with Igor's tools? There's a long string of numbers and letters with spaces, and there is also a hex ESN. Neither seem to be providing me with the proper PID, so I'm not sure what to do here.

Also, I think I remember reading Mobipocket Reader 6.0 was available for download still, somewhere. Unfortunately, that's not a term you can really search for around here... anyone have a link? Thanks!!

Okay, I'm a putz. Got the serial thing worked out.

So just the Mobilereader thing, then.

So, HOW did you get the serial number thing worked out? I'm having the same issue, and no matter what combination of letters/numbers I use from my serial #, it won't accept it.

Wow...that's helpful.

Can anyone offer any actual insight as to how to get the PID on a Kindle 3 (if possible yet). I know there's been a lot of trouble reported with the K3, but just wondering if any progress has been made.

For the most part, a PID is no longer needed (depending on what you want to use it for). What are you trying to do? You can PM me if you like.

Can anyone offer any actual insight as to how to get the PID on a Kindle 3 The PID from a K3 isn't very useful, but it is now possible to strip DRM by starting with the serial number, see Is it easy to remove DRM protection?
