To update them you'll need to re-download the books. I don't think there's a way to know for sure, but most books I've downloaded since K4PC started supporting KF8 came as a KF8 version (still a few older mobi's and some nasty Topaz).

Darn. I guess if there's no way to know which ones have been updated with new KF8 support I'll just have to wait until my PaperWhite shows up and start reading them there.

Just re-converted an epub that I've been reading using KindleGen and it looks much nicer now! The book I'm reading has some small, italic, right justified quotes at the beginning of each chapter that look much better in KF8 format!

I'd have a look at your purchase history and assume that any book you've bought this year could support KF8, excluding anything that's really old.

To update a book, just delete it from your Kindle and download it again.

hmm, I am lazy to look it up..... Does anyone know?
My Kindle 3 is Jailbreaked and includes the expanded screensavers mod.
Will I need to un-jailbreak my Kindle 3 to install or need to re-install jailbreak after the update to 3.4?

It appears that you do not need to remove the jailbreak before the 3.4 update, and this is the first time that a major update does not remove an existing jailbreak on a K3.

EDIT: It appears that yifanlu's jailbreak does NOT survive the 3.4 update.

However, some other hacks could potentially cause update problems.

@geekmaster: There's (some) mixed reports right now, but I *do* think Yifan's jailbreak handles the update correctly (we're essentially doing the same thing at the level the update affect).

That said, we'll know more about the few snafus that popped up after a look at the logs . But those kind of issues usually come from people using outdated install/uninstall files, and/or doing factory resets thinking it will magically fix everything (which, in some hacks' case, it doesn't, it usually makes more of a confusing mess ^^).

I checked my Kindle 3 Keyboard WiFi and it is still using Firmware 3.3. Thus, I went here to update:

Go to amazon and download the firmware, and follow the instructions. So far it seems this upgrade is not over the air yet.

Hi all,
I want to report my experience.
I have Kindle 3 3G UK: Serial no. prefix B00A with firmware v.3.3
I installed following files (Niluje):
kindle-jailbreak-0.10.N
kindle-ss-0.27.N
kindle-fonts-5.1.N-k3

I have also launchpad, some "kindlets" (sudoku,kindlenote,kindlegoban,snake,Kalculator), some apps (Cool reader, kpdfview).

This morning I downloaded firmware v.3.4 and installed it.
All is ok and working. The apps I listed are working correctly

Regards

Here's my question, and maybe someone smarter than me knows!!!

If the K3/Keyboard now has kf8, what features are accessible to the Kindle Keyboard w/ 3.4. Surely, they all are not. Will we get magnification, tables, etc.

I do know we get embedded fonts, but that's pretty basic. Question is, what else do we get.

And I'm confused, there are kf8 files (books) w/ .mobi extension, and also kf8 files with azw3 extensions. I tested a kf8 book w/ a .mobi extension, and it had embedded fonts......so what is the purpose of books w/ azw3 extension.

Lastly, should I stick w/ raw mobi books, or start buying/downloading azw3 books?

I'd like to know what has changed with version 3.4. I just installed it and everything looks the same as with 3.3.

The changes are at first not obvious, Go into your menus and you will see the new options. Other than that It is hard for me to explain.
