KTRotate_0.2.zip not installing

seaniko7's installer won't install well on my KT.. I've tried 4 times already but still not successful. Is it the only file that I need to install? Or do I have to jailbreak it first? My KT software version is 5.0.3 - w/ offers but I haven't been using wifi so there are still no advertisements on mine.. please help.. I'm really eager to have the landscape mode. Thanks

Almost any update posted here requires Jailbreak. Or do you think Amazon had posted their keys to allow everybody sign update packages?

Could somebody check this issue please? The landscape view mode is very useful, but this issue makes it low functional with some books.

yeah, but does not work for 5.0.3, and will never again, as it would be re-opening a serious bug of the system :P

btw, to install the auto-rotate update, first you have to do JB (with tar.gz method), then you can install it.. remember to disconnect you kindle when rebooting, otherwise no pudate will be taken

First of all I installed the yifanlu's GUI Launcher 1.0.1 (with the jailbreak in 5.0.3), and then I installed the seaniko7's KTRotate_0.2.

i confirm, the pictures will be cut off in both portrait and landscape modes. looks like 5.0.1 MobiReader-impl.jar is not compatible with 5.0.3 firmware.

Exactly.

Moreover, I have another issue. I have lost my default spanish dictionary. When I try to use a dictionary as default, the kindle shows a message saying "Not dictionaries found, look in archived items", and I can't use any dictionary.
I have uninstalled the seaniko7's KTRotate_0.2, I restarted the Kindle and the dictionary is working again. I also have unistalled the yifanlu's GUI Launcher 1.0.1 and the Locale Settings Enabler with the spanish package. I don't know what's exactly the reason for this issue. I'm going to do more test because it could be any of these scripts. If somebody has experimented the same problems expose the issue for discard corrupt scripts please.

I'm having trouble installing Landscape mode hack. I installed rotate-refresh.mp3 in the music folder as instructed. But, when I try to launch it, instead of buttons I get the following text: "<button type ="button", styles ="widt..." where the buttons should appear. I think it may have to do with the extensions folder mentioned in "3. Copy extensions inside it". Where exactly should the extensions folder be copied? I currently have it on the Kindle at the same level as the music folder. Any help would bee greatly appreciated..

THAT'S PROBABLY BECAUSE YOUR SOFTWARE VERSION IS 5.0.3.. THE MP3 FILE NO LONGER WORKS FOR KINDLE WITH UPDATED VERSION

Definetly, the seaniko7's KTRotate_0.2 causes another issue in my Kindle Touch. I have checked installing and uninstalling the different scrips and the KTRotate_0.2 makes unable to use a default dictionary.
In coclusion, in my case the KTRotate_0.2 makes the images are cutted and unable to use a default dictionary.

Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately you are correct--I have 5.0.3. Is there anything you could suggest short of waiting for Amazon to fix the rotate PDF issue?

I've tried to change the MobiReader-impl.jar file. I've encountered both the problems (dictionary problem and image cut), but it seems to be random: once, I had only the dictionary problem, now, after having changed again the file, I have only the image problem.

BTW, none of them appear in the pdf reader!

That's because PDF reader isn't using MobiReader implementation There're different readers in the Kindle handling different files. That one affects .MOBI and .TXT files I think.
