I recently added screensavers to the Kindle Paperwhite via SSH, but a strange thing is happening:
The screensavers cycle one after the other, but after the last one (bg_medium_ss18), the screen will turn off, but continue to show the main page (no screensaver, no backlight; just unresponsive).
I've had NiLuJe's screensaver hack
installed in the past, but I couldn't get it to work (due to probably my messing around in SSH before that). By "messing around" I mean to say I didn't really know SSH and the hack wasn't out yet, so I learned enough (and got lucky once) to SSH and add a few custom screensavers. They showed up, and it cycled, but it also appeared to disable NiLuJe's hack. I have since uninstalled the hack and removed the linkss folder, but the above problem still persists.
Is there some script or something that I need to edit to get it to work right? I would think (if there was one), it'd just know to cycle through all screensavers located in /usr/share/blanket/screensaver/.
It's not the worst thing to have to reboot after 18 power button pushes, but I'd like to figure it out.
Just to test, I replaced my 18 custom ones with the 19 stock ones, and it cycles through and repeats! This (to me) points at something wrong with the custom images, but I can find nothing wrong with any of them. They're all 1) 758x1024, 2) Grayscale, 3) .PNGs, 4) named correctly (and in order).
Is there something I'm overlooking?
Kindle Paperwhite WiFi + 3G (No ads version)
Firmware version: 5.3.1
JBPatch version (if it matters): 3.0.0
Windows 7 32-bit
Using the Xerox driver to make the KPW a RNDIS USB Gadget
PuTTY version: 0.62.
I also have Ubuntu 12.10 installed if it's easier to troubleshoot.
Ah, I think that's maybe all the relevant information.
Let me know if I can provide any more info, and thanks!
