Unhappy Kindle 4 NT (FW 4.1.0) Screensaver?

Hello everybody!

Since I got my Kindle 4 NT I've been browsing this forum for methods to add custom screensavers. For the old firmware the method with the RUNME.sh and the tar.gz folder worked fine, but then I got my Kindle replaced (one of the buttons didn't work properly), and first thing I updated the 'new' Kindle to FW 4.1.0. Then I noticed that the screensaver hack didn't work anymore. -.-
I don't think I'm able to JB the Kindle myself, so has anyone a method where I don't need to jailbreak the whole thing? Like the one I used earlier? (I read some threads about the new FW, but apparently nobody updated with no hack installed before...)..

Thanks in advance for your answers!
Tina

Hmm... No prefix on your post title. But context says "K4"
Did you try the: top-sticky -> prefix-index -> K4 -> sreensaver path?
Wasn't that thread helpful?
Did that seem like the place to ask?

Look here: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kind..._on_the_kindle

I don't think, you need jailbreak for this, but you need ssh access (search wiki).
