Arrow new kindle touch user interface?

It has been reported that amazon CS said that the new touch firmware will have landscape support and a "new interface": http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=174904

If true, this might break the touch "launch menu" hack, and the various javascript and WAF hacks are at risk too.

Of course, you can always use MfgTool and fastboot to downgrade a new kindle to a previous "open" firmware version.

I am anxious to get a copy of the new firmware from one of the new multi-language kindles to compare against the current 5.0.4 firmware. This sounds like a MAJOR firmware update.

We might even need to use a new jailbreak method to add hacks to the new firmware. This could be interesting...

Me too. There will be:
  • landscape/portrait mode (don't know if automatic via the grav. sensor or manual)
  • extended wi-fi (added 802.1x, but no certificates)
  • multi-language interface
  • KF8 support (!)

No multilingual X-Ray and TTS support at this time (english only). See here.

In any case definitely a MAJOR update. BTW, as far as I could see in the various screenshots in amazon.it/.fr/.es/.de/co.uk, it does not look like the interface is going to change that much (IMHO it will be pretty much the same).

From amazon.de:


Notice that black square on the top-right (maybe change orientation?).

One more screenshot fron amazon.de:



Some more snapshots here (font size dialog, dictionary, store, on-screen keyboard -pictures at right).

Here is the user guide from amazon.co.uk. It's the same as the italian one.
