Well I have the regular Kindle NT, no special offers, and I just get my default screensavers, nothing blank for me. And yes I restarted it.

I had the same problem originally on my NT without SO.

I made a mistake copying a command from the .rtf file.


Wrong = B. mv /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800/mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800_

Right = B. mv /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800 /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800_

I had missed the space at the end of the first line after /600x800 in B. on the .rft

I have a very good news - Cool Reader 3 was launched on the k4NT, here are screenshots and some information in Russian language https://code.google.com/p/cr3runner/wiki/CR3OnKindle4NT.
Here you can read guide how to run it (in Russian too) https://code.google.com/p/cr3runner/wiki/PrepareKindle
Using this guide you can try to lounch another aplications (fbreader etc) using kindlet instead of launchpad.
If someone will be intrested, i can make simple translation of the guide, or you can try to speak to the author here https://groups.google.com/group/pvnrunner?hl=ru
I already installed cool reader and it works pretty good! Now i am trying to lounch fbreader.

An english translation of this "CoolReader on Kindle 4 NT how-to" would be really helpful. I'm eager to read my old fb2 books on K4NT...

Hi, first off thanks for everyone's hard work. I am a long time lurker of mobileread. I registered because I am having trouble installing all the packages for the k4nt. I am using a k4NT that is jailbroken, and has custom screensavers.
I am trying to get custom fonts specifically, but none of the installers work for me. I copy the data.tar.gz file, and the update_"name here"_install.bin to the root, and select 'update your kindle'. Every time I get the same result "Update failed - please check error code below" the error code is U007. Can anyone help? Not sure what is wrong...

Thanks a lot! I've succesfully installed CoolReader on my K4NT. It works fine, but a little bit unstable yet, sometimes it shows an error message and restarts the Kindle. I hope it will be fixed in next versions.

Okay, I've solved the issue.

First, I updated the Kindle to 4.0.1. Then I used the '.assets' trick to remove the ads: http://blog.the-ebook-reader.com/201...-paying-extra/

Then I rebooted into diagnostics mode, calculated the root pw (with this page: http://members.ping.de/~sven/kindle.html ). Then I did the following:

mntroot rw
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/base-mmc
cd /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/
mv 600x800 600x800.bak
mkdir /mnt/us/screensaver
ln -sfn /mnt/us/screensaver /mnt/base-mmc/opt/amazon/screen_saver/600x800

Then I copied all the default screensavers from 600x800.bak to the /mnt/us/screensaver directory. After reboot, it all worked.

Note: Make sure the screensavers you put into the 'screensaver' folder are color RGB pngs and *not* greyscale ones.

Also here's font hack :

And simple jailbreak using ixtab method :
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16679763/kin...lbreak-1.0.zip

To JB :
- Copy RUNME.sh and data.tar.gz to your Kindle
- Reboot from settings menu
- enjoy

Does this jailbreak work for the kindle 4 non-touch?
