Can't Scroll to Top Part of Page While Zoomed!

i.e. you could never zoom out the upper half page of pdf file in landscape mode.
Can this be fixed? It really makes the Kindle Touch useless for my purposes (reading two-column journal article PDFs) to not be able to read the top of the page!

How can we fix this one show-stopping issue?

Oh, and thank you for all your work on this effort!

I'd assume this is for firmware prior to 5.0.3, right?
mr.wolf: I think the first post should be polished so that everyone knows which file is which! thanks.

i have included the full name of each file in the explanation of this hack.. do you think it's not clear enough?
or better to rename each attachment again to make less misundestanding?

Well looking at it now, it's alright now with description you wrote for seaniko7's file.

Not important but might help to have it like this so we know the first two are same approach:
rotate-screen_smallbuttons.zip
rotate-screen.zip


So I didn't want to run seaniko7's bin file on my KT 5.0.3. It has the same limitation as your approach and therefore not good for my KT, right?

@mr.w0lf, I don't think it is possible to downgrade Kindle Touch from 5.0.3 to 5.0.1 without mmcblk0p1 dump and diagnostic mode.

shoudn't be as easy as putting back reader app version 5.0.1 from a non-upgraded kindle?

Hi

Great job! safely install the auto-rotate in my KT. But ... when after a time without using the screen saver is activated (sleep mode) is no longer possible to use the function. Someone came up? We must change something? regards

Addition: this issue concerns only the book reading application. The web browser is OK.
My KT is 5.0.1 when I got it. the jailbreak and installed yifanlu's UI Launcher for screen rotate. After upgrade to 5.0.3, the UI Launcher still work, then installed the KTRotate_0.1.zip by seaniko7, everything fine except the same issue as Pirl8 described above, hope to solve it as soon as possible, then everything perfect.
