Did they upgrade you to a 3G model? They have done that in some cases, including mine, so they could get the replacements shipped sooner.

I agree with @Blossom that the QC on the PW must be really bad.
Replacement Oct 6th? And I ordered Sept 14th and my delivery is Oct 24th??! Not fair at all...

Replacement should get sent out when they have fulfilled back orders.

no..

It looks like its the NSO version though.

If the light leak wasn't there I probably would of kept it. Aside from the light leak (a half inch white glow along the left side), the LEDs looked like one bulb was different..it shined more outward and reached into the letters, while the other bulbs were good and the cone of light ended before reaching them.

But that was only mildly noticeable, and only under certain conditions..

Hm, I wonder if there's a bad batch of the light defussion layer? Only speculation, don't know what I'm talking about regarding it.

Expected shipping still Oct 16th with One Day shipping. Pretty annoyed seeing people with later shipping dates get theirs earlier...

So, how is this changing the PPW? What does it let you do? I know about hacks as I done this with previous kindles but these days not sure how it changes the features.

Jailbreak only adds a jailbreak key, so that you CAN install custom update packages that contain hacks and other unauthorized enhancements. I installed the USB networking package, which used that jailbreak key. I now have root shell access, which lets me do anything I want inside my kindle.

Other popular hacks (fonts, and more) will be repackaged so they can be installed using the "Update Your Kindle" menu item, which I used to install USBnetworking...

Correct, I just saw that. My baby has been sitting around with USPS a mere 15 minutes from where I live since yesterday 9:44AM, and is still supposedly going to arrive tomorrow. I can't stop hoping it will be today.

Xendula you should receive it today, well based on my experience. I think I prefer fedex smart post because it doesn't take too long and transfering to usps means that it arrives in my mail box. Finally free of amazon prime, it is so good. With free super saver shipping the packaging is done well instead of poorly, and I still receive it in a reasonable time.

I know some people don't like how Smartpost is handled, but I haven't had a problem with them before. I prefer my local USPS mail carrier to the idiot who currently delivers my UPS packages, that's for sure, and the FedEx driver is even worse. They constantly leave my packages at the unprotected south door of my house, where they're vulnerable to the elements, instead of the north door which has a roof overhead. I have asked them multiple times to leave the package at the north door when I'm not home to get it. Do they listen? Noooo. At least the UPS driver gives me a minute to answer the door. FedEx knocks once, waits two seconds, then dumps the package--unless it has to be signed for. And we won't EVEN get into the disaster that was FedEx's mislabeling of one particular package which took me the better part of the day to track down when they delivered it to my neighbors by mistake.

The USPS guy? He always delivers to the north door.

It's out for delivery! Yay!

My neighbor from across the street delivers for FedEx. Even when I had just moved in and had no clue who he was, he would sign for me and leave my package at the door. A bit weird, but it's so nice coming home to a package!!
