@inameiname: Oh. Then I have a slight idea of what might have been the issue.... (Still shouldn't happen in 'normal' circumstances, though...). That said, no, the uninstall won't have deleted usbnet's logfile, but then given when it hung, it might not even have been created at that point .

The system logs might hold more information, but then again, maybe not...

@simblanco: Don't reboot with a custom .bin on your Kindle. Always use the 'Update Your Kindle' link from the Settings' page menu.

SS for Paperwhite?

I know it's early, but any ideas when there would be a screensaver hack for the Kindle paper white? Could I just use the one for the Kindle 4 instead? I am coming from a KK.
Thanks for all you do!!

@harpangel36: Nope. The K5 simple screensavers one will be a better starting point.

@lokoroko: Yup, completely normal. And, if you used a recent enough uninstaller, completely safe to delete straight away (if not, after a restart).

Not sure what you mean by a better starting point. Is there a hack for a K5 and should I follow those instructions for my Paperwhite?

@harpangel36: Can't really say it much clearer. It means, that, yes, there's is a K5 hack, but it needs to be ported (at the very, very least repacked), and it's a much better starting point than the K2/3/4 hacks to base a port from.

hello!

question: if I install the software update 3.4 for kindle keybord, does my screensaver hack stops working? do I have to install jailbreak again??

I want to update but I don't want to lose the hack...

The screensavers still work with 3.4. you may have to uninstall the hack, install 3.4, than install the screensaver hack again though...

I was emailed the following this morning:
Code:
https://github.com/antijingoist/open-dyslexic
It's a font which is meant to be much easier for dyslexics to read.
Felt this would be an appropriate place to link this information in the hope that we can use it on our Kindles.

Kindle 4 NT Screensaver hack

Hi, I'm new here. I have a Kindle 4 NT (silver with Kindle Special Offer). I've just jailbroken my kindle and just installed the screensaver hack. I have done it to the letter. But after restarting, my custom screensavers don't show. It still have the default screensaver with the "Please connect wirelessly to download the latest Special Offers". My Kindle is with the latest firmware (4.1.0). Then when I came upon this thread, I've read this:

ScreenSavers:
Spoiler:

Note for Kindle Special Offers Users:

This doesn't, and won't ever, help you bypass something you agreed to (screensaver ads), so please stop asking.


What does this mean? Is this screensaver hack doesn't work for Kindle with Special Offers? Please enlighten me. I very much like to see my custom screensavers. Thank you in advance.

Kindle 4 NT Screensaver hack

[QUOTE=NiLuJe;973688]This is a giant thread in which you'll find the custom ScreenSavers, custom Fonts & USBNetwork hacks for all non Touch Kindle devices (Kindle 2/DX/DXG/3/4), along with the Kindle 2/DX/DXG/3 JailBreak.
I know it's a bit daunting, but please bear with me, it'll be worth it .

Although screensavers can be hacked (and there may be hacks that work with SO kindles elsewhere in the forums), we recommend that you upgrade your SO kindle to a non-SO kindle so that the screensaver hack here will work. You can do that at your amazon web page by paying an upgrade fee if you are in the USA. Amazon support has been reported to do that for you at no cost to you if you live in a country where the ads are not available.
