Sadly, the newtrix demo does not work on the Paperwhite. I will have to backport the gmplay eink support back to the older demos to get them working on the Paperwhite.
I guess I lucked out with my gmplay eink code, such that it supports the Paperwhite with no changes. Cool...
So now we have two old hacks that work on the Paperwhite. USBNet root shell, and the geekmaster kindle video player. I have clock.gmv.gz playing as I type this. It looks great with the light turned up high.
Has anybody gotten other apps working on the Paperwhite?
