Installing Kindle Touch MP3 Landscape Files?

Hi, I am having trouble getting this fix to work on my Kindle Touch. Should the Extensions directory be installed under the Music folder or under the root directory on the Touch? I've tried both ways and get the MP3 GUI but it doesn't do anything....Thanks....

After the v5.0.3 firmware update it's still possible to set the device in landscape mode (using the GUI launcher) but with an extra issue. Now when reading a book in landscape mode the last 2/3 characters (a fixed vertical stripe of pixels) of each TEXT row are not displayed. Header and footer are still there.



Addition: this issue concerns only the book reading application. The web browser is OK.

You can use vi command to edit files. But be sure to have backups of your root file system (see KT wiki). If you are not comfortable with vi or other parts of my description, it's better to wait.
So far, I haven't figured an easy way to automate it without distributing Amazon code.

Keep the power button pressed for about 20 seconds. Then release it.
Click to power on. Your kindle shoud then reboot.

on windows a nice way to get files and then edit them with notepad is WinSCP
http://winscp.net

usefull even for going around filesystem and copy/modify things.

So, to summarize, with 5.0.3 (will add this on main topic):

1) mp3 bug is fixed (no more code execution)
2) ebook reader app mess (more) up by using landscape mode.
3) auto-rotation still works, for now, but (2) should still be present


I am full-time studing but i'll try to give my 2 cents of help if i can.
now, brain storming on what to do now:

i think that the most simple thing to do is to make an uninstaller for the 5.0.3 patch (as far as i have seen, nothing really worthy in this update)

PRO: fix 1,2,3 in 1 time
CON: will work just for already JB devices.

what do you think?


@rastik using linux patch system?

I think the main advantages of the 5.0.3 update are faster page turns and more precise "touch". Anybody willing to attempt a patch to uninstall the update, should consider to leave at least those features in place, if possible.

BTW there's another issue to consider, closely related to the 6-tap bug. After 6 swipes (when you want to go to prev/next chapter) the display is not refreshen and stops responding, unless you tap on the top to bring down the menu bar. I think it was still there in previous firmware, maybe someone can confirm.


@mr.w0lf: ebbene sì!

P.S.

Is there a kindle emulator anywhere?

Thanks for pointing out these advantages!

I HAD 5.0.0 firmware and I'm quite sure it didn't have the 6 page turn issue. Now because I have activated brilliant auto-rotation proposed by Mehdi, I'm not sure if this issue is caused by the firmware or Mahdi's auto-rotation but it wasn't in 5.0.0.

You don't have the 6-page turn issue when in portrait. The problem is in landscape mode, if you don't turn on the page refresh. This was done automatically by all the "orientation" hacks implemented so far.

I was talking about a slightly different problem. If you want to turn pages you have to tap left and right to go back and forward. If you want to go to next/previous chapter you have to swipe over the screen. After 5 sweeps the display locks as it used to do when tapping without refresh.

This the issue no. 2 in mr.w0lf list. It happens while reading a book and not while browsing the web. This bug has been introduced by the 5.0.3 update.
