SSModeSwitcher: An extension to change Screensaver mode

YifanLu's "custom screensaver hack" doesn't work after 5.1.2 so this extension would not work also.

Click image for larger version

Name:	screenshot_2012-02-26T22_06_25-0000.gif
Views:	3761
Size:	14.7 KB
ID:	83103

Currently available options:
  • Defaults: for default screensavers
  • Lock Screen (uses yifanlu's lockscreen.png)
  • Profile 1
  • Profile2
  • Enable/Disable

About:
This extension helps us to change screensaver mode among four screensaver profiles ( default, screenlock and 2 custom modes) It increases the functionality of YifanLu's ScreenSaver Hack.
Actually this is a really simple extension. It only renames folders so that yifanlu's Screensavers hack can use the folder that you choose.

Installing:
Install YifanLu's Launcher - http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=161263
Install Yifanlu's Custom Screensaver - http://yifan.lu/p/custom-screensaver/
Copy folders lockscreen, customscreensavers and customscreensaver2 to root ( beside the folder documents)
Copy the folder SSModeSwitcher to extensions folder
Restart Kindle

To Use:
Place your screensavers in folders customscreensavers and customscreensaver2 (for two seperate custom modes)
Choose whatever mode you want in Menu > Launcher > Screensaver Mode
DO NOT delete or rename the folders: lockscreen, customscreensavers and customscreensaver2
DO NOT place your screensavers beside the lockscreen.png

Archieve: SSModeSwitcher.zip

Very cool! It works great for me, with only one thing: is it possible to have a true toggle in the menu for the 'enable/disable' screensaver? Right now it doesn't remember its current state.

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately I don't have enough knowledge about the structure to add this at least for now. As you might have already noticed, I even did not avoid from using multiple versions of a script to not bother to use a param. value. My only goal was to have a simple but solid extension to do this job.

Maybe somebody edit this extension to add the feature you mentioned and to make it more compact.

Smile Update

I found an easy way to toggle between disable and enable, hence fixed this issue

v 0.3
  • have a true toggle in the menu for the 'enable/disable' screensaver
  • if screensaver is disabled automatically enable it whenever user choose one of the modes ,

Actually this isn't really true enable/disable state. If someone changes the behaviour not using your extension it would show wrong state.
Push Yifan to either integrate my push request on his Launcher or re-implement the whole idea to get the possibility to implement really dynamic menus

You are right . However extension will correct itself by adapting to the new situation if someone changes the settings not using it .

As I said before I don't have enough knowledge about the structure of the launcher to write such complex scripts. What I am doing here is just for a temporary solution.

Can some one please try and make this work on kindle touch 5.1.0
I thoufht this wasreally neat but it only works with the custom screensaver hack and not he simple screensaver hack. the custom screensaver hack doesnt work on 5.1 so im requesting that someone modify this gui extension to work with simple screensaver hack
simple screensaver hack is where the pictures have to be names "bg_xsmall_ss04" etc

Failed to install

Hi. I'm new to this Kindle hacking, so I might be doing something wrong in the process.
I have a Kindle touch with firmware version 5.1.2.
I succesfully jailbroke my kindle and installed Yifan Lu's GUI Launcher.
I also removed the ads and installed XTerm.

I installed Yifan Lu's Custom Screensaver for Kindle Touch (http://yifan.lu/p/custom-screensaver/) and I downloaded the files in this thread and followed the instructions to install the SSModeSwitch mod.
The result I got was that not only I couldn't make the mod work, but also, when I lock the screen, it remains locked but without any image, which results in my screen staying in the last state before blocking.

Please, help.
Thanks in advance.

Yifan Custom doesn't work on the 5.1.2 IIRC. so this would not work.

Top-post should be updated to reflect that.

if you want to simply disable and enable screensavers via menu try the systemik extensions thingy I bundled together.

The Simple Screensavers hack is the one that works (again IIRC).


Sorry mate this is a no-go.
