Install custom screensaver on Waterstones Kindle Paperwhite

For those with Waterstones PW!

---------------------------------------------
Downgrade, Jailbreak, Upgrade, Hack
---------------------------------------------

- Downgraded to 5.3.1 using the file i found here: http://ixtab.tk/kindle-touch-updates.php
- download file and insert in the root folder(that is not a folder but the top level of "kindle". Then install update via settings menu

- Installed jailbreak from here:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=198446
- followed the readme - two files in root, one in documents

- Upgraded to 5.3.3 using the file i found here: http://ixtab.tk/kindle-touch-updates.php
- Same procedure as downgrade

- Installed dev certs from here: http://ge.tt/3ZRY9XE/v/51
- insert into root and update from menu

- installed rescue pack from here:http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=2290044
- insert into root and update from menu

- installed the hack from here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=195474
- downloaded the links and took the install-file and inserted in the root folder. Then did a update

---------------------------------------------
Install USBnetwork, SSH, delete Waterstones screensaver
---------------------------------------------

- Install USBnetwork. http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=186645
- Now on your Kindle go to [Menu] -> Settings -> [Menu] -> Update Your Kindle. Once done, eject and unplug your Paperwhite.

- Now we need to test if it's installed correctly. On your Paperwhite, tap the search icon at the top. Type in ";un" without the quotations. It'll go back to the home screen thereafter. Now plug your Kindle into your Mac. If it doesn't show up as a device like it normally does, it's worked!

- SSH into your device and navigate to the waterstones screensaver image in /var/local/custom_reensavers/bg_medium_ss00.png

- Delete image and reboot device

---------------------------------------------
It works
---------------------------------------------
