First beta release on first thread. For all Kindles. I haven't gotten a chance to test yet because the process is so long. I'm going to test on the K2 US & K3 US and report back.

Yea, don't use it yet. I've fixed tons of bugs and will release an update in a few hours.

Ok, released the first "stable" packages. This worked for me without any tweaking. Test it and post your results. This first beta ONLY supports Kindle 2.5.8 -> 3.1.

There is currently a weird bug, for some reason, the host sometimes crashes on "saving tts files," if your update creation process ends early with a successful message and the log stops at "saving tts files," you have this bug. To get past it, do a hard reset (hold sleep for 30 seconds), copy rootfs.img from the client again (you cannot reuse the image if the update process exits), and try again. I'll try to find the cause of this problem, but it seems to occur if you run the script more then once before rebooting.

Do you know if the "official" 3.1 update from Amazon is an incremental
update, or it contains "everything"? If it does, then it can be, probably,
used as a source in your procedure. This approach will eliminate the need
of a donor 3.1 device. At the same time, downloading the 3.1 update from Amazon is 100% legal.

Nope, it's just a bundle of patches. Amazon has the ability to release a "full" update, which is a recovery package, which is what I'm generating. Basically, IF amazon were to release a 3.1 update for the K2/DX, it would look exactly like I packages my script generates.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if someone takes my script and generate pre-made packages. However, that would be illegal.

Download kindle-updater-beta2.zip and find there is no update_dxg-2.5.8-prepare_kindle.bin, is it missing or just not supported?

packages.lst in kindle-updater-beta2-src.zip has no EOF or new line, this lead to the missing update_dxg-2.5.8-prepare_kindle.bin

Yifanlu, I got U007 code, when I running update_k3-3.1-create_updater.bin (with my rootfs.img).

My host is K3 (B006), jailbroken with NiLuJe's JailBreak 0.6.

Do you have any suggestion/recommendation?

If you use his jailbreak, you need to whitelist this package. If you don't know how to do that, you can always ask him or uninstall and install my jailbreak.

@tekkasit: The latest packages have an updated whitelist that *should* support this, check the latest posts (basically, just replace your linkjail/etc/whitelist file with the one from the latest zip).

@yifanlu: Not really sure what to do about the 3.1 on a K2 stuff, though. Does it install the default 3.1 otaup script (and thus needs to be jailbroken more or less like a proper 3.x device), or a more friendly patched version, or does it automatically install a 3.1 aware jailbreak? ;p

I'm assuming it'll end up only accepting update packages targeted at the host model, not the target (ie. you'd have to use packages targeted at a k3g on your k2i target if you used a k3g as host), or am I wrong?

(If I'm not making much sense, that's probably because I've been up reading all night, and it's now 7AM here, sorry ).

No NiLuJe, it doesn't work. Even I download your latest.

But after I removed your jailbreak, and use yifanlu's jailbreak instead. It's working!

Yifanlu, I didn't see any bin in the /output folder in my K3?

I found only 2 files, 48.4 Mbyte corrupted tts-files.tar and
make-package.log.

Wed Apr 20 19:31:18 SGT 2011: checking for enough free space to continue
Wed Apr 20 19:31:18 SGT 2011: mounting rootfs image to /tmp/.rootfs.17613
Wed Apr 20 19:31:18 SGT 2011: retrieving filelist and patches
Wed Apr 20 19:31:18 SGT 2011: saving required files to /tmp/.save-root.17613.tar
Wed Apr 20 19:31:18 SGT 2011: removing old files from rootfs image
Wed Apr 20 19:31:24 SGT 2011: copying new files to rootfs image
Wed Apr 20 19:38:57 SGT 2011: saving tts files

Any suggestion?
