Orientation hack does not work in browser on version 5.1 anymore. Does anybody have ideas how to fix it?

Rotation patch was applied.

Ok... I had written an advisory note about this, but it has been buried again in all of the threads around here... guess I'll put it on my TODO list to make this clearer in the jbpatch documentation.

jbpatch can only influence the Java parts of the UI. For some weird reason, Amazon decided to mix Java (much, but not all, of the UI, such as readers, home screen etc.), and HTML/Javascript based parts (Browser, MP3 player, WiFi selection dialog) (and more, but that's not relevant here) together on the Kindle Touch. (You'll find the latter under the name WAF or Pillow on the Wiki). The point is that jbpatch can control "everything Java", but nothing outside of it. And the browser belongs to "outside"

If you have the will and the patience, I strongly suggest to read the entire Wiki page... much of this "hidden knowledge" is in there.

Hello, I am a proud new owner of kindle Touch (v. 5.1.0). So far, I managed to customize it quite nicely with the help of your marvellous tools. I also added Enable/Disable Screensaver option in your GUI launcher. However, since the status is not preserved after reboot, the displayed Screensaver option was not always correct. I solved it by adding the below scripts in the extensions folder. The menu option calling script should then call guistartup.sh at the beginning:
# fix status at restart
/mnt/us/extensions/guistartup.sh

I believe that the same applies to your Start/Stop Usbnetwork menu option and can be fixed in the same way by adding appropriate line in guistartup.conf

Hope this helps to improve your tools!
Andrej


guistartup.conf:
start on starting framework
task
script
cp -a "/mnt/us/extensions/screensaver/disable.json" "/mnt/us/extensions/screensaver/menu.json"
end script

guistartup.sh:
#!/bin/sh

UPSTART=/etc/upstart
EXTENSION=/mnt/us/extensions

if [ ! -f "${UPSTART}/guistartup.conf" ]; then
mntroot rw
cp -a "${EXTENSION}/guistartup.conf" "${UPSTART}/guistartup.conf"
mntroot ro
else
if ! cmp -s "${EXTENSION}/guistartup.conf" "${UPSTART}/guistartup.conf"; then
mntroot rw
cp -a "${EXTENSION}/guistartup.conf" "${UPSTART}/guistartup.conf"
mntroot ro
fi

In somewhat related news:

Code:
[root@kindle test]# kindletool version
kindletool (KindleTool) r299-g1d6e810 built by niluje@ajulutsikael with GCC 4.7.1 20120531 (prerelease) on Jun 15 2012 @ 00:22:47 against libarchive 3.0.4
\o/

(It'll be bundled with the next USBNetwork update, which should drop in a few days).

Unhappy extensions not appearing!

sorry if this problem was posted somewhere,but i couldn't find the solution.Yesterday i found a extension called kingo and when i put it to the extensions folder and restarted,it did not appear.i thought it was a problem with the extension and thus left it.Today i found an update of Imagegallery (now name changed to Komic) and put it in extensions and restarted it.Still no new extension appeared in the gui launcher.i uninstalled and reinstalled launcher but the problem still persists.

Another shameless plug.

Yup, that's a native win32 port (well, through MinGW, okay, but still, no more Cygwin ^^) .

With surprisingly few _WIN32 ifdefs needed, once a few things have been refactored... (I think I'm in love with libarchive ;D).

Just don't try to be cute with the paths, it'll only do \ => /, if you pass really Windows-y paths like .\ or a drive letter, you'll end up with unexpected paths in your archive. KISS (/ or \).

(As usual, the binaries are in post #187. You'll want the -mingw package ).

Bad Habit of not giving details...
If I add any items to the extensions foder, they don't show up. I've rebooted multiple times. There are about 10 extensions that don't show up, so it can't be a config.xml or menu.json problem.

I had a similar problem when I upgraded to 5.1.0. To fix it, I uninstalled the old gui launcher and installed the new one recommended for 5.1.0. Are you using the "5.1.0 compatible" gui launcher?
