KindleNote - making notes on Kindle

KindleNote - it is a small utility that lets you keep notes on the Kindle. Kindlet was created as an analogue of Notepad, but with support for physical alternate keyboard localisation.

The list of possibilities:
  • create, delete, rename notes
  • save notes in txt format (UTF-8, Unix line-breaks)
  • search by note's title
  • OSD hint of alternative layouts while editing
  • control with keyboard shortcuts
  • notes encryption (AES 128-bit)

Installation:
  1. Install Jailbreak
  2. If you have file "linkjail/etc/whitelist", you should add to it "update_dev-key" string (tip)
  3. Download KindleNote.azw2 and update_dev-key_0.4.zip
  4. Connect Kindle to computer and copy KindleNote.azw2 into "documents" folder and correct* file from update_dev-key_0.4.zip - into root directory
  5. Home->Menu->Settings->Menu->Update Your Kindle
  6. Kindle restarts
  7. You can work with program! (In "Aa" menu you can change language to "en" and then restarts program)
  8. ...
  9. PROFIT!

*correct - file update_dev-key_0.4.N_${version}_install.bin, where ${version} =
  • k3w - Kindle 3 Wi-Fi [B008]
  • k3g - Kindle 3G [B006]
  • k3gb - Kindle 3G UK [B00A]
  • etc.

Screenshots:


The working directory of applet is (/mnt/us/)developer/KindleNote/work. in this directory kindlet saves notes and configuration files. There is 2 config files: keyboard.txt and keyboard.png. First of them - alternate keyboard layout settings, and second - OSD hint in edit mode.
Keyboard layout changing based on physical keyboard localisation hack. Thanks to Sir Alex

Updates:
2013.09.29 - fixed five way button for Kindle 3 with firmware v3.4
2011.05.27 - added workaround for bug "...title have an invalid date". If date on Kindle is too old, it will be set to 1 Jan 2013

2011.04.09 - fixed decryption
