I have installed the JBPatch 2.2.1 and it works fine. It's incredible!! I have some suggestions for next versions (if ixtab can implement them):
Just to make this clear again: everybody can create patches, not only ixtab

I might look into this some time in the future (or I might not), so don't hold your breath. However, if anybody has some information about where this flag is "stored" inside the mobi files, feel free to comment. The more information is available, the higher the likelihood of this quirk being fixed somehow.

Not going to happen.

Done, see the attached file. If you wish to completely hide the JBPatch program from home, you can use Collections Manager to do so.

Not going to happen (well, at least, I personally won't look into it). Reasons:
  • Changing screensavers requires modifications to the root filesystem, which is against the spirit of JBPatch.
  • Screensavers are handled completely outside of the scope of JBPatch (the Java part if the framework). The only thing where it could come into play is for determining which book was last read, but that can very likely also be determined differently.
