Speaking of the developer.keystore file, does anybody have a comprehensive list of just what kindlet/user-made apps/games there are out there? I have found a few, but only after searching the net for quite a while. Thus far, the ones I have installed are as follows:


Endless Book of Sudoku


K3Chess


Kalc


KindleChineseChess


KindleVNC


Snakes


So if anybody else knows of more, feel free to add them. I think I will post a new thread on this topic, along with links the where to get the ones I know, so we all can benefit from one place to find them all. Perhaps even this site can be updated to include the list as well, not just the few already there: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=128704 .

Don't forget KIF - the text adventure game. Truly awesome piece of work.


I'm afraid I haven't been able to get the install to work. Thanks anyway, Thomas, for all your work, but I get a 'failure' when I try the shift L K launchpad command (I already had launchpad installed, and used it, so I don't think I used it incorrectly, and I did update the launchpad reader (shift shift space) before trying. I even got my name taken off the development list for someone just in case it was that.

I have got KIF working, using ADQ's install method for his developer.keystore, and that works, so I can use KIF, but I think if I installed the dev.key files for another program in the same way, then that one program would work too, but I just can't get this keystore to install. Highly tempted to give the usbhack a go, but will mull on it overnight and probably chicken out .

Thanks anyway,

Tamsyn

PS - Aaaand, Launchpad stopped working. Then I tried to fix it, and didn't. I think I have my answer though. If I can break Launchpad (not my shift key, I checked) I shudder to think of what I might do with usbnetwork access. No dice. My kindle is the teacher.

Okay, got Launchpad up and running again, but I'm afraid the Shift L K command still ends in failure. I have the developer.keystore file, and the two loadkeystore files in the launchpad folder. I can't see why this won't work, sorry to be such a pain. It would be truly awesome if I could get it to work, as all I have to do is run it whenever there's a developer keystore update.

Might have a go at inameiname's files and see what happens. Thanks!

Iname's files don't work either, even when I changed the ; in the keystore.ini file to ## to make sure it wasn't being misread by launchpad (because the shift K I wouldn't run). kif still works, so I'm thinking there are no changes being made to the keystore at all. There is no developer.keystore.backup file in the launchpad folder either, so that part of the script isn't running either.

Hmmm, IDk why it isn't working for you. All my two Launchpad scripts do is to automate the process the thread creator first mentioned. Also, ";" to "##" shouldn't change anything either.

Just curious, but it sounds like when you copy the single developer.keystore key that works for kif, it works just fine, for kif, however, if you try the all-in-one developer.keystore key that is listed at the beginning of this thread, it doesn't. Would that not mean the key for kif just isn't included in the latest merged keystore keys, and needs to be added?

Nah. Kif by Andrew De Quincey is signed with his ADQ key, which has been merged in the keystore.

Weird. So you are saying, when you add the developer.keystore that is specifically for kif, using the manual method mentioned in the first post, it works, but if you do the exact same thing with the merged developer.keystore, it doesn't work, even though the key for kif should be merged in the keystore? Again, strange.

You can't install two keystore files at the same time. That's why we need a merged keystore file. If you use update method to install a new one; in that case old one will be removed and related app wil no longer available. And to be able to use the update method the installer file should be in the form of update_*_*_install.bin. Also don't forget about the whitelist if you installed NiLuJe's jailbreak.

He didn't say this. He only mentions about installing with the ADQ's way which is update method of the KindleOS. As far as I understood he couldn't install a new keystore after that.
Tanga: Am I correct?

Correctamundo! (except I'm a she ).


I don't have root access at all, nor usb hack installed. And, given my total lack of anything ressembling skills and an occasional burst of unfounded confidence where I think I know what I'm doing, I'd rather not.

I did forget about the whitelist, but since this isn't an update file would that make a difference?

if you want to use the update method, then this is needed.

But still I'm not sure what you are trying to do:
What exactly did you try to install? merged developer keystore? or another one? if it is the second one, could you give the url of this keystore?

I did exactly what you told me to do , at least I think I did:
Copied the developer.keystore file from this thread to the launchpad folder
Copied the two files you uploaded to the launchpad folder

Unplugged the kindle and pressed 'Shift Shift Space' to update the launchpad log file.
Pressed 'Shift L K' to run your script
Got the 'Failure' message from Launchpad.
Tried to play one of the games anyway just in case it had updated (snake and one other)
Nada, but KIF still works (this is why I think there were no changes)
There is no developer.keystore.backup file in launchpad either.

The above happens with all the different loadkeystore.sh files you posted here (including the latest).
I also tried Inameiname's method as well, and got the same (non) result.

I hope that's enough info. If you want to give up that's fine. This has probably wasted a lot of your time. It's just a shame. It would be good if non-hackers could also use all this beaut software.

I am looking into how to create an update file, but there doesn't seem to be any easy to follow steps for a noob like me. Though I think I may need the java runtime first.

EDIT: It seems that everything I need is here:
http://www.cowlark.com/kindle/getting-started.html
I'm just not sure how to use it.

Ok, don't worry about the time

let's try this:
Code:
mntroot rw
		mv -f  /mnt/us/launchpad/developer.keystore /var/local/java/keystore/developer.keystore
mntroot ro
try this with developer.keystore (not developer.keystore.txt)
if this works then developer.keystore in your launchpad folder should disappear.

EDIT: if this fails too, then before using these scripts use the uninstaller of the installed one.

Huh, interesting. Despite me getting a 'Failure' message, the developer.keystore file did disappear. The other programs still don't work though.

Does this also means that you are using notepad to create this scripts?

if this is the case, most probably your problem is here.

Please try with notepad++ (this makes quite difference)
