If you can see the contents listed, then DeviceCapabilityAdapterImpl$1.class is patched.
the other file that needed to patched is
com/amazon/kindle/kindlet/internal/portability/b/d.class
Like max99 said, some thing went wrong at this step.

surely this means there's a problem with the runme code somewhere?

So I guess it might because your device some how report a different device type name.

Firmware 2.5.8 recognise 5 "device type strings"
A3UN6WX5RRO2AG (turing) K2 US?
A1F83G8C2ARO7P (turing_ww) K2 worldwide?
A1PA6795UKMFR9 (nell) DX US?
A13V1IB3VIYZZH (nell_ww) DX worldwide?
A3P5ROKL5A1OLE (miranda) DXG?

3.2.1 recognise 3
A1VC38T7YXB528 (shasta) K3
A3AEGXETSR30VB (shasta_wifi) K3 wifi
A3JWKAKR8XB7XF (shasta wifi ads?)

The first step of my patch copy a file from 2.5.8. Since the contents are list in home screen, your device type string must be one of those k2 strings.

The 2nd step of the patch replacing k3 type strings with 3 of 2.5.8 strings, miranda, turing, nell_ww.
My device is miranda, the other two choices are quite arbitrary (and bad).
I guess your device somehow identifies itself as nell.

The attached runme script use nell and turing_ww instead of nell_ww and turing.
Replace deviceHack/runme by the attached file (and do not delete the .jar.orig file) and use launchpad to run the script again.
Attached Files
File Type: zip runme.zip (1.0 KB, 77 views)

well i retried the script and this time it doesn't even list the active contents.

My device is absolutely kindle DXG. This might explain why it doesn't even the list contents now.

My kindle dxg has some hacks installed. This might be the reason. I have the usbnetwork,screensaver hack,launchpad and full screen picture viewer hack installed.

btw the 3 kindle 3 type strings is most possibly kindle wifi, kindle wifi + 3g (us) and kindle wifi + 3g (europe). I know the amazon.com and amazon.co.uk 3g kindles are different.

I don't want to reinstall the yifanlu's hack because i have returned to 2.5.8 once and the device began restarting during the update. It restarted about 1 hour and i could finally break the loop by entering the recovery menu.

same with me.
but the first version of the runme worked for me.
Tested on KindleNote.

Thanks TJW.

P.S.: I have only the jailbreak and the launchpad installed.

P.P.S.: I ran the runme by using the launchpad. My firmware version is 3.2.1

can i ask, which of the three files did you use for the patch to work?

also, if you run it from launchpad, does it install or only temp patch things?

I meant the first corrected one
-> http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=354

I used /mnt/deviceHack/runme, so no install.

ok i just ran it and it works great for me too, all my active content is functioning again! well done TJW

for the record i just ran the patch cold without any of the 3 reference files (jar or image files)

my question now is how can i make this patch permanent (it disappears when i restart)? i really don't want to ssh if possible. can the 'runme' be modified to do the install?

according to TJW, if you want to make the change permanent, type
/mnt/deviceHack/runme install

it's cool, i just altered the 'rune' file in a text editor and changed the last if / else section to force the install.

works a treat!

The temporary patch uses "mount -o bind" which works like a copy until you do a true reboot.
When using the install option, it does a real copy.

I knew your device is DXG, that's why I didn't think the device type was the issue until I ran out of ideas. It was unlikely, but possible that a DXG somehow identifies itself as something else.
So at this moment, I have no idea why it doesn't work.

/var/log/messages contains debug information, it should tell you why active contents refuse to run.

The only thing I changed was the device type strings.
Code:

#K2D2=A3UN6WX5RRO2AG
#K2D3=A13V1IB3VIYZZH
K2D3=A1F83G8C2ARO7P
K2D3=A1PA6795UKMFR9
so, I typed K2D3 twice. It should be
Code:
K2D1=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE
#K2D2=A3UN6WX5RRO2AG
#K2D3=A13V1IB3VIYZZH
K2D2=A1F83G8C2ARO7P
K2D3=A1PA6795UKMFR9
Though I still think device type is unlikely the issue.

no idea, i was looking at your hacks and i have the same as you except the full screen picture viewer. is it possible this hack has previously changed your portability jar file?

other than that check the echo comments in the debug file...the patch has some logging info therein.
