Where do I go to alter these flags that you mention?
Is it in the systems folder?
I put the instructions for performing this procedure in the first post of the thread. Its not in the systems folder, it required you to jailbreak it in order to gain access to the hidden file system. Once you do that, navigate to the directory I outlined and edit the line that I outlined.

Like Tiersten said, and I've discovered, it *is* unusual for the Kindle to continually reindex files, it normally shouldn't interfere with your reading experience. The reason mine did is that I was using the unlighted Kindle case and it shorted out my Kindle continuously and restarted the indexing procedure.

Is this the case for you? Are you maybe using corrupted ebooks that hand the indexing mechanism.

I wouldn't suggest you send the Kindle back before you figure out what is going on. Its a wonderful device if its working properly
