I've tried creating a sub-folder named "screensaver" and placing the PNG files in that folder, I see the name of the file but when I tried to open it, I get an error that states "Archieve does not contain any pictures."

Kindly assist.

Thank you so much
If viewing .PNG's doesn't work, you could also convert the PNG to JPG.
I use a handy tool called Irfanview (irfanview.com) for this.

Book covers display

A hack to have the book covers displayed on one page would be nice.
Just like the ibook shelves on the iphone.

You're best bet is to ask in the Developer's forum. That's where those who hack their Kindles posts.

Is there a jailbreak for the kindle 4.01 yet? I'd like to put some custom screen savers on it.

Yes. It is built-in. ENABLE_DIAGS. Enable USBnet. SSH. Put what you want where you want. If you want kindlets from the developer's corner, put the jailbreak key on it. Whatever. Read the threads and the wiki. For that matter, read the posts on this page of this thread, just above your post. I mean, really now, are you just trolling, or what?

Although we all miss the lovely minesweeper easter egg, amazon was feeling nice and added an active content version!
